Editor's Overview

The 2018 Dodge Challenger combines the sleek muscle-car flavor of a V8-powered 2-door coupe with the surprising utility of a 5-passenger car. Comfortable and quiet, especially in V6 models, the Challenger is thoroughly modern despite its retro styling. Yet with various V8 models available -- including the 707 horsepower Hellcat -- the Challenger takes no prisoners against its Ford and Chevy competitors.

It is not a gas efficient car at all. I get about 17 mpg but I love the car so it doesn't bother me.

I love my Challenger. I have the blacktop package so the gas tank cover is blacked out. My rims are black chrome 23". 0-60 is fantastic and I can track it. Very spacious and comfortable. Back seats go down and provides a large amount of trunk space. Also have android auto which makes navigating very easy.

- Tania A

This is a good base line muscle car.

The gas mileage for a muscle car is really good. The interior is a bit bland but the exterior design makes up for it. Rides very smoothly and there has not been much issues. Comfortable enough with many features like Bluetooth, jack, surround sound speakers and more. Would recommend it for sure.

- Sean S

It is an amazing car. I love it so much.

It is very spacious. Nice seats. Great conditioning. Great hearing. Can drive for a long time. Good surround system. Reliable. Dependable car. Amazing. Fantastic. Phenomenal. Great. Show stopping. Best care of all time. Beats the rest. Comfortable. Awesome. Beautiful. Comes in nice colors.
