Paying homage to the 1971 version of its predecessor, the modern-day Dodge Challenger just gets better and better. The 2018 Dodge Challenger, found in Langley at Willowbrook Chrysler, is no exception. Emulating its ancestor's muscular stance, performance and sheer masculinity, this modern-day muscle car continues to exhilarate.
Featuring iconic styling cues from the '71 model, the present-day Challenger boasts a split grille & tail lights, long hood and short tail as well as a modern version of its four halo-shaped headlamps, updated with LEDs. Don't kid yourself, though. The 2018 Dodge Challenger is more than just a nod to nostalgia and aesthetics. It's about power and performance.
With an assortment of engines to choose from, the Challenger is capable of a neck-snapping 840 hp, (yes, you read that right!) and 770 lb-ft of torque. It flies from 0 to 100 km/h in just over 2 seconds thanks to an available 6.2L Supercharged HEMI SRT Demon V8 engine. Since this kind of raw power is not necessarily practical as a daily driver, or for teenagers, the base engine - a 305-hp 3.6L V6 - is still pretty impressive. Six other engines are available including a 5.7L HEMI V8, 6.4-litre SRT HEMI V8 and the HEMI SRT HELLCAT V8. A selection of five transmissions are also available.
Inside, the Challenger is outfitted with racing-inspired accessories that only get better with each trim elevation. Ranging from paddle shifters and hood-mounted cold-air intake vents to a speedometer that registers speeds as high as 340 km/h; the sky is the limit here. Interiors can be personalized thanks to an assortment of available colour and trim combinations. A ten-way power driver's seat maximizes driver comfort, while seating for passengers is roomy thanks to Best-In-Class headroom, rear seat legroom and cargo volume. For serious racers who want to maximize their experience by removing weight, the Demon model comes standard with only a driver's seat. Passenger and rear seats can be added back for as little as one dollar each.
Obviously, a car with this kind of power needs exceptional safety features. Various models of the Challenger keep everyone safe with tech such as an engine immobilizer, a horsepower-limiting key, Brake Assist, Rain Brake Support, All-Speed Traction Control and Blind-Spot Monitoring.
Since its launch a few years ago, the modern version of the Challenger continues to challenge itself and raise the bar for its rivals. It is the first AWD muscle coupe ever, the fastest 1/4 mile production car ever, and calls itself "the fastest, most powerful muscle car ever". It has also earned the most Canadian Black Book 'Best Retained Value' awards than any other in its class. With a whopping 12 models to choose from, ranging from just over $28,000 to upwards of $110,000, there is definitely a Challenger for anyone who longs for the muscle cars of the '70s.
