Dodge Challenger


Dodge’s Challenger SRT8 is one serious-looking American muscle car. This is a modern machine that not only has good performance, but serves up a near sedan-like ride quality. The new Challenger also contains all of the safety and entertainment features expected.

Key features standard across the range include power adjustable driver’s seat, front and side-curtain airbags, a four-speaker CD/MP3 stereo, cloth seating, and power accessories. The R/T model, in addition to upgrading the engine, adds a unique appearance package, an advanced traction control system, fog lamps, dual exhaust tips and electronic stability control. The SRT8 builds further on this package with more aggressive exterior styling, upgraded interior elements and SRT8 badges inside and out.

There’s plenty of room inside for four passengers and the seats are quite comfortable, but design is largely monotone and somewhat bland. The dashboard and instrument cluster are rather plain. The interior materials are of decent quality, at least, with plenty of soft-touch surfaces.

The SRT8′s have better bolstering and are also covered in leather and faux suede.
