The 2023 Dodge Challenger proudly upholds its retro design, celebrating straight-line speed and fun, synonymous with vintage pony cars. Standard models come with a V-6 engine, but thrill seekers can opt for the naturally aspirated Hemi V-8, with power options ranging from 375 to 485 horsepower. Dodge offers the high-octane Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it may not outperform the Chevrolet Camaro or Ford Mustang on winding roads, the Challenger's nostalgic allure, with its powerful V-8 roar and smooth ride, is irresistible.
The Challenger, first unveiled in 1970, was Dodge's answer to Ford's Mustang which sparked the pony car revolution in 1964. The first-gen Challenger, discontinued in 1974, boasted engines from an inline-six to a mighty 425-horsepower 7.0-liter Hemi V8. The second generation, a scaled-down sports coupe named the Dodge Colt Challenger, was introduced in 1978. Produced by Mitsubishi, it moved away from large engines to a variety of four-cylinders, a run that concluded in 1983.
Launched in 2008, the third and current generation of the Challenger beautifully marries modern muscle with a nostalgic edge. Its imposing design, quad headlights, and power-packed engine are a nod to the original model. Dodge reveals that 2023 will mark the end of the Challenger's era as a pure gas-guzzling muscle car.
