The Dodge Challenger muscle-car arsenal is reloaded as the most complete model lineup with 10 trim levels, ranging from the 707-horsepower SRT Hellcat to the 305-horsepower, 30-mpg 3.6-liter Pentastar-V-6 powered SXT model.
All 2016 Dodge Challenger models are designed and engineered for world-class precision and outstanding performance. The 10 available trim levels for the 2016 Dodge Challenger include: SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, R/T Shaker, R/T Plus, R/T Plus Shaker, R/T Scat Pack, 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker, SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat.
Inspired by the iconic 1971 Challenger, all 2016 models take on a bold appearance that draws on the 1971 model’s split-grille and split tail-lamp cues, updated with four signature LED headlamp halo surrounds offset by piano black trim. Single projector-beam headlamps at each front corner light the road ahead.
To highlight the muscle car’s performance abilities, the 2016 Dodge Challenger is designed with a performance cockpit that embodies the trapezoidal-themed exterior in an artistic and more organically styled way.
Dodge Challenger’s cleanly executed instrument panel features an aluminum-stamped driver’s bezel, which establishes the driver’s cockpit. For a high-tech look, an innovative 7-inch TFT instrument cluster screen extends through the driver’s bezel and provides a customizable display.
The 2016 Dodge Challenger’s segment-first TorqueFlite 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission delivers world-class precision and fuel efficiency, along with a new electronic shifter, Sport mode and paddle-shifting capabilities for more performance, as well as an improvement in fuel economy.
