Whether you call them sports cars or you call them muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger is one of the best in the business. This high-performance automobile has a racing heritage that dates back for many decades. The new Dodge Challenger hasn't strayed too far away from its base, but it does have more advanced technologies than many of its predecessors. Here is a complete look at some of the car's top features.


From a visual standpoint, it's safe to say that the Dodge Challenger doesn't have any known weaknesses. This muscle car has a low profile, and its body is wide. The vehicle has streaking body lines that snake their way from end to end. The Challenger also sits well balanced on several wheel styles and sizes.

This includes 20-inch Brass Monkey wheels as well as 18-inch satin-aluminum wheels. Single and double hood scoops are available, but this is contingent upon your trim choice.
