The 2020 Dodge Challenger - Specs, Performance, Review

The 2020 Dodge Challenger - Specs, Performance, Review

 

Always a favourite with the muscle-car set, the Dodge Challenger offers a perfect blend of performance, power, and sport styling. Dodge makes the new Challenger in six trims - SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack 392, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye. Scat Pack 392, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye models also come in widebody configurations.

 

Performance Features

 

 

Always at the top of the pack when it comes to performance, this year's Dodge Challenger comes with a choice of five exceptionally powerful engines. SXT and GT models come equipped with a 305-hp 3.6L Pentastar V-6. R/T trims get a larger 375-hp 5.7L HEMI V-8, while a 485-hp 6.4L HEMI V-8 powers Scat Pack editions. SRT Hellcat owners enjoy even more power from a 707-hp 6.2L supercharged HEMI V-8. Lastly, SRT Hellcat Redeye trims come with a whopping 6.2L supercharged, 797-hp, HEMI V-8 engine under the hood. All HEMI configurations get pretty good fuel ratings for their size thanks to the Chrysler FuelSaver Multi-Displacement System (MDS). An eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard regardless of engine. Challenger R/T editions and all higher trims also get the option to switch to an available TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission.

 

Base SXT and GT Challengers come standard with rear-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive. All other models come with rear-wheel-drive only. The MDS fuel-saving system delivers exceptional fuel economy numbers across the entire line at 7.8/12.4 for the 3.6L Pentastar, down to surprising 11.2/18.6 for the powerful 6.2L Hemi V-8 (all numbers are highway/city, L/100km). Depending on the model, The Dodge Challenger comes with one of five different suspensions. SXT trims get a performance-tuned suspension, GT and R/T come with Sport suspensions, and a High-Performance suspension comes standard on Scat Pack 392 models. Hellcat and Widebody trims get Competition suspension with adaptive damping.

Entertainment, Comfort, and Technology Features

 

 

The new Challenger comes loaded with lots of comfort and entertainment features. Push-button start, a 10-way power driver's seat with four-way adjustable lumbar support, and dual-zone automatic climate control come standard on every trim. Chrysler's UConnect 4 multimedia centre also comes standard on every new Challenger. The standard six-speaker UConnect4 system features an AM/FM/MP3 radio, colour touchscreen controls, and a media hub with an auxiliary audio input jack and two USB ports. Scat Pack 392 models, and above, add an upgraded 276-watt amplifier and SiriusXM satellite radio (with one-year subscription).

 

Other UConnect 4 features include seamless Bluetooth connectivity for music streaming and hands-free calling, as well as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Siri Eyes Free compatibility. Along with controlling the Challenger's infotainment system, the UConnect4's touchscreen also handles various other vehicle functions such as climate control, heated and ventilated seats, and Hot-Spot control. By downloading the appropriate app, Challenger owners also have the ability to lock, unlock, and remotely start their Challenger from almost anywhere.
