The 2010 Dodge Challenger is a blast from the past kind-of-car. The car is literally retro designed inside and out bringing out the muscle car era back into life. Though the Challenger was designed like its 70’s ancestors, this car has a lot to offer identical to the amenities of a super coupe. Dodge provides three trim models for the Challenger depending on the engine brutality, the SE model which has a V6 engine, the R/T model powered by a 5.7 V8 and the elite SRT8 which is the meanest of its little brothers. The SRT8 is planted with a 6.1 liter V8 engine bringing out an enormous 425 bhp paired with 420 lb ft of torque and can explode from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds.
The Dodge Challenger also offers what other fast cars can’t and that is space. The Challenger is spacious and roomy compared to its rivals (Mustang and the Camaro). The rear seats can accommodate 3 adults without feeling cramped and the trunk also provides a considerable amount of space. This is because of the cars’ large and tall retro design but the Challengers’ size is also its disadvantage, it has a high center of gravity and feels a bit wobbly when it comes into corners. The area where the Challenger is at its best is on a straight line and the car will just accelerate with ease and you can feel its command with just a step on the throttle. Dodge created a car that has stuck to its 70’s roots to relive our glorious dreams of the muscle cars and the Challenger is back on a vengeance.
