2018 Dodge Challenger Review

Since muscle cars officially made their big comeback several years back, the field has been crowded with competition from just about every auto maker out there. Some are legacy vehicles that have never been out of production; others are brand new. Some are cars that went out of production, and made triumphant returns to lead the class in performance and driving experience. Among those that are loved by drivers in Missouri, especially around St. Louis, Kirkwood or Chesterfield is the Dodge Challenger.

With a new model year, everyone gets excited to see what the Challenger is going to offer. Discover the complete features, trim levels, options and driving performance you can expect from the 2018 Dodge Challenger, and where to see one yourself.

2018 Dodge Challenger St. Louis, MO

The new model of 2018 Dodge Challenger is sure to excite muscle car enthusiasts. Why, you ask? Because as though the 707-horsepower version of the Hellcat didn't already offer enough, this year there's a new Demon model which offers an engine that puts out a mind-blowing 840 horsepower! There will only be 3,000 of this limited model built in the United States.

In less limited quantities, you'll find the new SRT Widebody, the Performance Handling Package for 5.7-liter V8 Challengers. You'll also get a bigger standard touchscreen, standard rearview camera with standard Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.

Dodge Challenger Trim Levels

There are a full seven trim levels available for the new Challenger, which is an awesome amount of customizability for a muscle car. The two entry levels are driven by a V6 engine which gives you 305 horsepower, while higher level trims are powered by increasingly powerful V8 engines, from the 5.7-liter at 375 horsepower all the way up to the Demon.

Base level technology includes 7-inch touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, smartphone app integration, rearview camera, dual USB ports, six-speaker sound system, automatic headlights, keyless entry and ignition, auto-dim heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, and power adjust driver seat.

Higher levels of trim give you a range of additional technology and performance options including upgraded brakes, limited slip differential, upgraded 8.4-inch touchscreen, satellite and HD radio, special performance apps, parking sensors, heated seats, leather upholstery, ambient lighting, Alpine or Harman Kardon audio, blind spot monitoring, GPS navigation, automatic high beams and wipers, and more.

Engine Options

The sheer range of engine options also sets the Challenger apart from the competition. It starts with the 3.6-liter V6, and goes up from there. Other options include a range of V8 engines including a 5.7-liter offering 375 horsepower, 6.4-liter delivering 485 horsepower, a 6.2-liter Hellcat putting out 707 horses, and the new limited edition Demon with an 840 horsepower V8. Transmissions include a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. The base V6 comes only with the automatic.
