We know many people picture the battle of Charger vs Challenger when picking a new Dodge with some oomph under the hood. That’s because both offer North & Central New Jersey drivers a combination of American automobile heritage and modern vehicle amenities.
There are also plenty of options you’ll love for both, including the SRT Hellcat’s powerful 707-hp 6.2L HEMI V8, a choice of Uconnect infotainment systems and a number of colors & custom appearance features. With that being said, let’s explore the differences between the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger so you can see who wins the Charger vs Challenger matchup.
Thrilling drivers since 1966, the Charger is a sports sedan that has 4 doors. That means it can also be ideal for driving with the family while leaving them behind on occasion to hit the open road & put the pedal to the metal.
There’s also a Charger Pursuit version that’s offered to the police force if they need a vehicle to help them with their needs in terms of speed and equipment.
The Dodge Charger’s available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) makes driving during New Jersey winters easier because the system automatically adjust to your traction needs while driving in inclement weather like snow, hail, slush and ice. Not to mention the rain which can be an all-year-around issue.
Wowing drivers since 1970, the Challenger is a pony car that has 2 doors. That means that this coupe provides a muscular look and performance driving experience while being functional and still getting up to 30 mpg.
If you’re looking for an old-school appearance, you can only find the legendary Shaker package in the Dodge Challenger. This not only gives you cold-air induction through the hood and other performance upgrades, but also unique Shaker design cues inside and out like:
- Satin Black hood-to-tail stripes, rear spoiler & fuel filler door
- Gloss Black grille surround
- 20” polished aluminum wheels w/ black pockets
- Bright pedals
- K-Black interior accents
- Shaker badging throughout the interior & exterior
Ultimately, picking a winner of the Charger vs Challenger battle is a matter of driving needs and personal taste. Car enthusiasts may have sentimental reasons to enjoy the Dodge Charger or Dodge Challenger or they like the look of one vehicle over the other, but the choice is up to you.
