2018 Dodge Challenger at Savage L & B Dodge Chrysler Jeep

The 2018 Dodge Challenger is a 5-seat, 2-door coupe with excellent rear visibility, trunk space, and rear passenger comfort that has been wildly popular (and capable) since its inception into the muscle-car arena. This year, the 840-hp SRT Demon joins the 2018 Challenger lineup, and there is also a new SRT Widebody model based on the Hellcat. The Challenger SRT model has new illuminated Air-Catcher headlamps with Hellcat logo, as well as a new Demonic Red Laguna leather interior. For 2018, the standard touchscreen grows in size, a new Performance Handling package is installed on 5.7-liter V8 models. Also, every model incorporates Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and a rearview camera. If you are looking for a contender on the streets at relatively affordable rates, the Challenger is the name you need to know. Depending on what your desires are, there is a fitting model for it almost certainly, from the grippy AWD GT and strong-cornering Widebody, to the 30mpg highway V6 SXT and the road-incinerating SRT Demon!

Can you explain the engine ranges with corresponding models?

The SXT, SXT Plus, and the GT are all powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine (305 horsepower, 268 pound-feet of torque) matched to an 8-speed Torqueflight 845RE automatic transmission. The R/T, R/T Plus, T/A, T/A Plus, R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker all have a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine partnered to either a 6-speed manual transmission (375-hp, 410 lb-ft) or the 8-speed automatic (372-hp, 400 lb-ft). The R/T Scat Pack, 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker, T/A 392 and SRT 392 models see a huge 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with 485-hp and 475 lb-ft of torque! The SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Widebody both rock a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 707-hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The new SRT Demon is the most powerful factory-produced street-legal muscle-car ever with an astounding 840-hp and 770 lb-ft of torque on 100-octane race fuel! Those numbers adjust accordingly when it uses premium unleaded to 808-hp and 717 lb-ft of torque. The SRT Demon is the world's fastest quarter-mile production car, can go from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds, has the highest g-force acceleration of any production car at 1.8g, and can pop a wheelie on launch when appropriately supplied with the correct gear and fuel.

Can you break down the traditionally popular trims a bit more on the inside and outside?

There are 16 models in total of the 2018 Dodge Challenger. It's arguably easier if we group them this way: the SXT (and SXT Plus), the R/T (R/T Shaker, R/T Plus, T/T Plus Shaker, and R/T Scat Pack), the T/A (T/A Plus, T/A 392), the 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker, the GT AWD, and finally the SRT models (SRT 392, SRT Hellcat, SRT Hellcat Widebody, and the SRT Demon)! A sunroof is optional on all Challenger models and one-touch up windows are standard on all models. The SXT brings in standard features like 18" wheels, a 6-way power-adjustable driver seat, a 7-inch touchscreen, heated mirrors, keyless ignition/entry, and two USB ports. The R/T adds 20" wheels, foglights, and an active sport exhaust. The R/T 392 adds a sport-tuned suspension, Brembo performance brakes (4-piston front/rear), a rear spoiler, an 8.4-inch touchscreen and an Alpine sound system with HD/satellite radio. The SRT 392 model has items like leather upholstery, xenon headlights, adaptive suspension dampers, configurable driving modes, and more. The SRT Hellcat is furnished with a robust sport suspension, four exhaust tips, customized exterior styling, and automatic high beams.

Can you go over the newer models as well?

The GT AWD is the only Challenger model with all-wheel drive, something appreciated in climates with inclement weather, and it has optional 19-inch aluminum wheels with painted pockets. The GT employs 19-inch wheels, enhanced brakes, an active transfer case, front-axle disconnect, ventilated/heated front seats, foglights, rear parking sensors, performance-related in-car apps, leather upholstery, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and both satellite and HD radio. A new SRT Hellcat Widebody model extends its width with fender flares to allow for the installation of wider tires like the 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires (available for new 20 x 11-inch aluminum wheels) that augment the both handling and grip. The Widebody also benefits from electric power steering with selectable modes set at the best level for Sport, Track and Default, plus, has a Custom mode to coalesce the best of them all at once. The SRT Demon was forced to strengthen its drivetrain components because of the sheer immensity of the Demon engine's output. There are features such as Torque Reserve, Line Lock, street-legal Nitto drag radials with crinkling sidewalls, and Launch Assist supplemented by TransBrake. That list continues with a 45.2 square inch Air-Grabber hood scoop and the SRT Power Chiller liquid-to-air intercooler chiller system. A 2-speaker stereo with satellite and HD radio comes in the Demon as standard, as more speakers were removed to make the whole thing lighter. Stripped down for racing, the Demon doesn't come initially with a front passenger or rear seats, sound insulation, or a tools and parts full 'Crate', but all of those can be added in for a dollar each at the time of purchase.

Final Thoughts on the 2018 Dodge Challenger

All 5.7-L HEMI V-8 fitted Challenger trims have a 2.75" electronically controlled active exhaust system to create a heart-stopping Dodge muscle-car sound. It comes in 15 different exterior colors, including IndiGo Blue, Plum Crazy, F8 Green, B5 Blue, and Billet Silver Metallic. Stylish on the outside, the Challenger is certainly inheriting items brought in from its legendary history, including 1971-influenced the power bulge hood, LED halo headlamps, a split grille, and LED tail lamps. Also on that theme, the Challenger brings interior patterns like the classic Houndstooth cloth and a high-sill center console. All of this detail and performance-based functionality is absolutely fueling the fire for the Challenger, and that doesn't show any sign of slowing down! 2018 is the year to explore these models further and find the one for you-- come on down here to Savage L & B Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM and we'll go over all the details!
