Besides blazing speed and chiseled good looks, the 2020 Dodge Challenger has a practical side, with best-in-class cargo space and actual rear-seat legroom.
What’s new for the 2020 Dodge Challenger?
This year, a limited-edition 50th Anniversary package is available to commemorate the Challenger’s long history on the road. It’s available for the Challenger GT RWD, R/T Shaker, R/T Scat Pack Shaker and R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody models. The package upgrades your style with new exterior paint colors, a body-color Shaker hood, and unique badging.
What 2020 Dodge Challenger is the best?
One of the greatest things about the 2020 Dodge Challenger is just how many trim models and customization options are available. Choosing the best Challenger among them is a highly personal decision, but we’re happy to present your options.
First, choose from five trim models: SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat. The SXT and GT feature the same powertrain, a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 303 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The SXT is nicely equipped with modern features, like keyless entry and ignition and Dodge’s Uconnect infotainment system. The latter includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration for maximum connectivity and minimal distraction. Inside, the GT is increasingly stylish. It also adds remote engine start and rear parking sensors.
The R/T is equipped much like the GT, but it’s the first Challenger trim to come standard with V8 power – more specifically, a 5.7-liter V8 rated for 372 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque.
With its bigger, 6.4-liter V8 engine, the R/T Scat Pack takes performance even further, giving you 483 horses and 475 pound-feet of torque. Performance upgrades include launch control – technology that gets you off to a speedy start. This Challenger also piles on the comfort, with heated seats and a heated steering wheel.
Finally, there’s the SRT Hellcat. If your idea of the best Challenger is the fastest Challenger, this is your model. Under the hood, a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine pumps out 717 horses and 656 pound-feet of torque. Add the SRT Hellcat Redeye package to boost output to 797 horses and 707 pound-feet of torque. The SRT Hellcat also comes standard with an impressive list of performance features, from adaptive suspension to larger brakes.
Which 2020 Dodge Challenger has AWD?
Two Challenger trim models offer optional all-wheel drive: the entry-level SXT and the GT. Like the other Challengers, these models come standard with rear-wheel drive, but you can always add all-wheel drive for a sportier ride overall as well as extra grip on slippery pavement.
Are Dodge Challengers reliable?
The Challenger is one muscle car that was built to last. Besides a solid build and a reputation for lasting performance, your new Challenger also comes standard with Chevy’s excellent warranty coverage. Bumper-to-bumper coverage lasts three years or 36,000 miles – whichever comes first. And your Challenger’s brawny powertrain gets even longer coverage: five years or 60,000 miles.
