2014 DODGE CHALLENGER
I bought Yahoo's car because of the retro styling. It looks good, drives well, but there s few things I don't like. The 305 hp engine does run, but the automatic transmission shifts hard. Something that is normal for these cars. The gas mileage isn't that good. I get between 16 and 19 in the city. The passenger seat has to be reset every time someone gets in the back seat. Overall, it's an okay car. Spend the money on the V-8. At least your poor gas mileage has some real horsepower behind it.

2012 DODGE CHALLENGER
Don't have the time to ride my motorcycle that much any more, so I got a sporte car with power. The car runs great it had 40123 miles on it on the car fax one of the things checked out by the selling dealer was the charging system and battery, after seven weeks and 1600 miles the alternator and battery had to be replaced. The sport package gives it fun to drive. It sounds good and is a eye cather I am happy with it on 22 miles to the gallon on the trip down South.

2011 DODGE CHALLENGER
Muscle car performance, but still comfortable with good space.
Compared with Camaro, and Mustang. It was a better choice for me due to looks, practicality of larger cabin and trunk space.
Big fun to drive with 6 speed.
Used Dodge Challenger Information
Like many historic vehicles, the Dodge Challenger has an unusual background in that it began as a sub-model in the Dodge lineup before becoming its own nameplate. In 1958 and 1959, the Dodge Silver Challenger was a sedan that struggled to sell and was quickly dropped. The Challenger was reinvented for the 1969 model year, and this first-generation model is often considered the first car to blur the line between a pony car and a muscle car. Production of that first generation ran until 1974 when newly minted emissions requirements caused Chrysler to rethink the vehicle.
In 1978, the Dodge Challenger was re-introduced, this time as a rebadged Mitsubishi Galant Lambda. That car was produced until 1983, but proved to be polarizing with customers. When interest in small, powerful foreign-made vehicles waned, that second-generation Challenger ceased production. Over time, however, the American obsession with muscular sports cars, throaty V8 engines and nostalgic looks continued. As a result the Challenger resurged as a 2008 model. This third-generation design draws heavily from the 1970s Challenger, with interior and exterior styling cues that pay tribute to the first generation. The result has proven to be very well received.
The current-generation Challenger has been sold in various trim levels and under the SRT brand to rival the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang. Initially offered only as the Challenger SRT8, the 2008 model came with a 6.1-liter V8 engine that makes 425 horsepower. A five-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive were standard, as well as Brembo brakes, leather upholstery and 20-inch wheels.
More powertrains and trim levels were introduced for 2009 in an effort to market the Challenger at more affordable price points. The base Challenger came with a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 250 horsepower, while Challenger R/T models features a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with 370 horsepower. The base engine was replaced for the 2011 model year, as a new 3.6-liter V6 engine with 305 horsepower became standard equipment. The SRT8 model also received a stronger 6.4-liter V8 that makes 470 horsepower.
The most powerful Dodge Challenger to date was introduced for 2015, as the Challenger SRT Hellcat debuted with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that produces 707 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic transmission also became standard on the base model.
Over time, the Dodge Challenger in all its forms has become legendary and thus very collectible and desirable. From prized 1969 models at the car show to today's newest model, the Dodge Challenger is a car that is owned by people who love it unquestionably.
