2016 Dodge Challenger Buyer's Guide

With a revered legacy going all the way back to the halcyon days of the original pony car era, the Dodge Challenger is one of the most recognized names in high performance automobiles. After introducing the highest output V8 engine ever installed in a production automobile for the 2015 model year, Dodge brings the 2016 Challenger to market with limited edition models featuring its “Plum Crazy” purple heritage hue. Originally debuting in 1970, the shade will be offered only for the 2016 model year before being returned to the vaults once again. In addition to the 707-horsepower Hellcat engine, the 2015 model year brought an eight-speed automatic transmission, a revised platform, and subtle styling changes—thus 2016 Challenger models come in with few significant changes.

The 3.6-liter V6 uses cold air induction and a true dual exhaust system to generate 305 horsepower and 268 ft-lbs of torque. The Challenger’s 5.7-liter V8 makes 375 horsepower and 410 ft-lbs of torque with the six-speed automatic. If you go with the eight-speed, you’ll get 372 horsepower and 400 ft-lbs from the 5.7. The Challenger’s 6.4-liter V8 makes 485 horsepower and 475 ft-lbs of torque. And then there’s the one everybody’s been talking about all year—the 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat engine delivering 650 ft-lbs of torque.

Why buy the 2016 Dodge Challenger?

If you’re longing for those thrilling days of yesteryear, but you also want all the modern amenities in an outrageously fast two-door coupe; the Dodge Challenger is rather anxiously waiting for you to slap a vanity plate just below its rear bumper. Along with all of that power, comes a comprehensive slate of available safety features. These include forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, automatic high-beam headlamps, blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, and a rear parking sensor array. Further, the big 8.4-inch touchscreen monitor found in other Chrysler models has found a home in the Challenger. Other features include keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, automatic climate control, a tilt and telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, and alloy road wheels.
