New for 2014
For 2014, Chrysler has expanded the availability of certain features. Every Challenger can now be equipped with performance suspension and brakes as well as 20-inch aluminum wheels.

Also new is an option package for entry-level Challengers and SXT models called the Super Sport Group. It includes 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels, a peppier 3.07 axle ratio, a rear spoiler, performance suspension and brakes, and a quicker steering ratio. A Super Sport Group includes zinc steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles and a Sport Mode that changes the automatic transmission’s shift timing for best response. This package can also be had in Sinister Super Sport guise: The only difference is black-painted wheels.
