2020 Dodge Challenger review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 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 2020 Dodge Challenger?

Challengers with leather get a stitched dashboard and upper door panels, while V-8 models can have carbon fiber accents and a simulated-suede headliner. Updated wheels are available across the coupe’s range of trims.

What Features in the 2020 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. The Challenger’s looks are already retro, but you can dial up even more retro cues if you want; a Shaker Package with a Mopar Shaker hood and a cold-air intake, among other features, is available. The Challenger offers a lot of modern technology and safety features, too, like standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity and available forward collision warning.

2020 Dodge Challenger vs. 2020 Chevrolet Camaro: How Do They Compare?

At first glance, both cars could qualify as biceps on wheels, but the Chevrolet Camaro is really more of a sports car than a muscle car. The Camaro is smaller and lighter than the Challenger, making it better suited to winding roads. The Camaro is also a little lighter on the pocketbook with its lower starting price. Both cars offer incredible amounts of horsepower in high-end trims, but while the Challenger can hold up to five people, the Camaro seats four.

Should I Buy the 2020 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, however, because the base engine just doesn’t deliver the experience this car is trying to sell.

FUN..FUN..FUN!

When I read the reviews on this car and many people said it was a “fun” car to drive, I now know exactly what they mean. I never thought of a car as being fun to drive, except for when I turned 16 and ANY car was fun to drive. This R/T is great looking, fast and turns heads! It has an on board history report of your speeds. So if you ever get a ticket, at least you will know how fast you were going...probably won’t be in your favor though. This car is quiet on the inside but roars on the outside! Gotta love muscle cars and this 5.7L V8 HEMI! I have never owned a Black car but I couldn’t see this car in any other color. Also, it will always be garaged so not a problem. If I had all the money in the world, this would be the car I would want ... well let’s be honest, it would be the SRT Demon with a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI! But the R/T is reasonably priced and has more than enough power than most cars on the road today. And, to me, it is the BEST looking one too!

5.0

Most powerful car I’ve ever owned!

This car is all it was advertised to be and more. 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T 8 speed automatic/manual transmission. Anyone looking to be introduced to the muscle car life, this is the perfect car for you.

5.0

A fun car to drive.

A fun car to drive and meets my current needs! Love the looks of an American Muscle car! Went from a Ford Expedition EL to this Challenger GT..a BIG difference, but I'm an empty nester and no longer need the bus!
