2019 Dodge Challenger review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Dodge Challenger?

The Dodge Challenger is a two-door coupe that seats up to five people. It has a standard 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Four V-8 engines are also available, including a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that makes 717 or 797 hp, depending on the model. A six-speed manual transmission is available on higher trim levels, and both rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered. Competitors include the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.

What's New on the 2019 Dodge Challenger?

A new SRT Hellcat Redeye model debuts with a 797-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that's related to the engine in the drag-strip-focused SRT Demon model. Dodge claims a 203-mph top speed, a 10.8-second quarter-mile and a 3.4-second zero-to-60-mph time for the Redeye. The SRT Hellcat's output is up 10 hp to 717 and features a new dual-snorkel hood. SRT Hellcat and R/T Scat Pack versions get an updated Launch Control system as well as Line Lock and Launch Assist features.

A new R/T Scat Pack Widebody model takes the flared fenders from the SRT Hellcat Widebody and features wide 20-inch forged wheels. It also gets suspension revisions and six-piston Brembo-brand front brakes.

Other changes to the R/T Scat Pack include an aluminum hood with heat extractors, Air Catcher headlights, and SRT drive modes and Performance Pages.

Meanwhile, the R/T model gets a performance suspension, revised steering, 20-inch wheels and shift paddles for the automatic transmission. There's also a Performance Handling Group for the R/T that's designed to improve handling response. 

What Features in the 2019 Dodge Challenger Are Most Important?

If you want power, you've come to the right place as the Challenger lineup is packed with high-powered offerings in the form of the Hellcat models. If you want, you can dial up even more retro cues: A Shaker Package with a Mopar Shaker hood and a cold-air intake, among other features, is available. You can also get a lot of modern technology and safety features, too, like standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity and available forward collision warning.

Should I Buy the 2019 Dodge Challenger?

If you’re looking for a powerful, fast muscle car with throwback styling, the Challenger, in its higher trims, is likely to satisfy. We recommend skipping the V-6 for one of the available V-8s, though, because the base engine just doesn't deliver the experience this car is trying to sell.

I love my 2019 Dodge Challenger SXT AWD

Nice price and rides and feels so comfortable. I got 19” rims which have a larger sidewall which makes it ride smoother. Makes my 20 minute drive to work fun.
