This car is awesome! Hands down winner when test driving camaro and mustang. No issues at all with the car except the TERRIBLE head rest sets WAY back, totally unusable to taller drivers that have to tilt the seat for head room and the fact to get the BEE on the splash screen on start up you have to purchase a package. THEY ARE ALL SCAT PACKS! Shaker comes with custom Shaker badging on seats, and splash screen. This is the first car i have not wanted to customize the hell out of. Near perfect the way it is. The Alpine stereo is ok, NOT great, but I would spend the difference for HK system.

glad so far

I traded in this past week a Dodge Challenger SXT for a R/T. This is like night and day as far as power, after owning a SXT which is a quick car at 305 HP big difference when you add on 70 HP. Just the sound of that HEMI engine is enough for any car enthusiast to know they are driving a real muscle car. If your ego really needs a SRT-8 or a Hell Cat and your wallet can afford that kind of car, well go for it. But lets face it for daily driving you don't need either one of those two cars. The R/T can pretty much blow the doors off any car on the street today. I bought the manual 6 speed, but you can chirp through the gears no sweat. Any fool that thinks they want to blow you off at a stop light, just do what I do, look at their car as your passing them, and then look at them, they wish......lol Trust me you wont go wrong with a R/T. That car has probably more power then you will ever need.

Modern muscle

When I started shopping for a new car I was looking for something that isn't ordinary that offered a manual transmission. After reading reviews and comparison tests my first stop was the Chevy dealer to look at the Camaro SS. It is an awesome car to drive but not very good looking and small. I need a back seat and the Camaro has a package shelf with seat belts instead of somewhere to sit. So then I went on to the Ford dealer to look at the Mustang GT. I drove about a half dozen GT's set up in all the different configurations I also drove a couple Ecoboost equipped cars just for comparison. The back seat in the Mustang can actually be used as a seat for short trips so I was going to pull the trigger on a GT/PP but everyone I looked at either had too many options or not enough and every different car I looked at always had some fit to finish problems (panels not lining up, the grills being off and so on) the more I looked at these the more turned off I became. Then I headed to the Dodge store and started to look at the Challenger. I ended up with the Challenger because it was put together better than the mustang, has a real back seat, its a blast to drive, interesting to look at, and fast. I don't consider the Challenger a "pony car" like the others, so the size and weight do not bother me. I think of the Challenger similar to a 70's/80's "personal luxury coupe" like the Charger was marketed.

More than I expected

The car is exactly what I was looking for,yes it is a big car, weights more than a sports car but this is as close as you are going to get to a classic muscle car. Big inside, roomy, comfortable. The technology is there and this thing turns heads. Shaker hood I think makes people get out of the way when you are coming, this car just looks fast no matter what speed you are going.

I was in high school in 1970 when the first muscle car era was in full swing but then I couldn't buy one if I wanted to (high insurance rates, saving money for college, etc.). Fast forward forty six years and I finally have my dream car, a 2016 Scat Pack 392 Hemi Shaker with the 8 speed Torque Flite transmission. This car was well worth the wait! The power comes on quickly and builds like an Atlas rocket at any RPM thanks to that incredible transmission. I drove both the manual and the auto and it was an easy choice for me to make. This car has the look of the original but with all the best engineering and safety advances. The car is capable as a daily driver in urban traffic but also a fantastic "touring" car on long trips. The exhaust rumble with the windows down sounds loud and proud as an American muscle car should, but in the cabin at cruise noticeable but not objectionable. What Dodge has given us is a Challenger at an affordable R/T level trim but with the power train (and most of the top shelf suspension bits) of the more expensive SRT 392 model. The build quality of my car is excellent. Paint and interior/exterior trim are flawless. Fuel economy for me averages 18 city and 26 highway when driven with restraint, some thing that is difficult to do at times! We lost the first muscle car era over a period of years so who's to say how long this new generation will last before new regulations step in to spoil our fun. I'm just thankful to be able to drive this awesome Challenger now!

I purchased the Challenger R/T with the Scat Pack option, 6.4L engine, 6-spd manual shift, Jazz Blue Pearl Coat color. I've had the Challenger for one month now and couldn't be happier. I'm tipping my hat to Dodge designers and engineers for an amazing muscle car. Initially I was looking at the big 3 muscle cars - Mustang GT, Chevy Camaro SS, and Dodge Challenger. I didn't like the look of the 2016 Mustang's front end (to me it looks like a Focus or Fusion). I then sat in the 2016 Chevy Camaro - visibility out of the windshield is like looking out of a WWII Sherman Tank gun sight (too small for me) lousy (I don't know what the Chevy designers were thinking here). Finally, I sat in the 2016 Challenger - fantastic!" I'm 6ft tall and weigh 185lbs and have absolutely no problem fitting into the car - very comfortable. I then took a test drive - case closed! The Challenger designers and engineers at Dodge not only hit a home run with this car, they hit a home run with the bases loaded! Fit and finish is supreme, 8.4 inch U-Connect works fabulous, NAV works great, Blue Tooth was a snap to set up, climate control working through the 8.4 inch screen is amazing. The steering wheel seems perfect. Anything else? Oh yeah - 25mpg+ on the highway in 6th gear (it pulls around 1800 RPM at 80mph). Get the 20-inch Hyper Black II Forged Alum Wheels - beautiful set up. The added weight of the car (heavier than Camaro and Mustang) gives the Challenger a fabulous ride. The trunk is huge for a muscle car. It corners great, standard Brembo (4-piston) brakes work just fine. All 485 horses are there, make no mistake about that. The 6-speed manual Tremec Transmission is slick! I bought this car because I wanted American muscle, and boy did Dodge deliver!

Hells yeah

I used to own a 67 Cuda Fastback Formula S and this new Challenger really takes me back. The V6 3.6 is powerful enough for scooting around in traffic and I love the attention to design right down to the pit stop gas cap

The SRT 392 is a pig, but a lively pig

This is a BIG car, but my 392 has more than enough power to get moving. It's been a while since I drove the R/T, but I recall it's no slouch either. The interior is of a clean design, spacious and comfortable. Plenty of technology, without it being a distraction from the fact that this is a muscle car. Maybe the two biggest "problems" are: (1) visibility, which is mitigated by the backup camera and blind spot warning system; and (2) road noise (I just got out of an Infiniti G35), but you don't buy a Challenger looking to minimize road noise. Overall, I love the car. It's a modern car that hasn't forgotten its also a muscle car.

I was 28 months into my 39 month lease on my orange SXT plus with nav. I was going to wait until my lease was up and get another Dodge Challenger SXT. My wife and i loved the ride and I got more compliments on this car than i did on my C5, 1997 Corvette! Long story short. Two days ago i got an email from a local dealer showing a SXT Plus in Plum Crazy, with $7,400 dollars in options. Just out of curiosity, i went in to look at it, talked to tommy, the sales manager, and drove out with the car the next day for a 39 month lease with increased mileage of 15,000 a year for a lower monthly lease price than i was paying for my 2014 Orange Challenger. Today i drove the car with my wife for 1670 miles and got 5 compliments. this was day one with my Plum Crazy car! I love the blacktop package, the driver convenience group, the nav and the incredible technology that i have not begun to understand yet, the 9 speaker and sub woofer sound system and the great look of the black graphics from the front to the back of the spoiler. I got 28 MPH on day one, averaging 70 MPH on highway travel. Summary: i continue to enjoy every day of my Challenger experience and look forward to 2 to 3 years of this car, and going back to the dealer for a 2018 or 2019!

Great car

I bought the scat pack shaker and I have to tell you this is a blast to drive, I've owned many cars including several corvettes and Camaros, love my GM LS motors but I can honestly say the Challenger gives me great pleasure to drive. I have no regrets in my purchase and feel that Dodge has done a great job balancing power, looks and comfort. Love it

Before you buy this car please check the metal that holds up the wheels. I found rust and corrosion on the front wheel screws and the metal parts that went to the wheels on both sides. I asked the salesman about it and he said it was superficial. I took the car home and I found that they had painted over the metal in black but there was rust peaking out. It was bad rust which crumbled in my hands. When I took it back to the dealer I found that all of the other challengers had rust in the same places. I went to 2 more dealers and I found the same rust on all of the Challengers. Look under the front wheels and you will see the rust. I think they are making the challengers with rusted metal frames.

Can't stop driving it

It has duel identity, it can be your Sunday/show car or it can be your daily driver. This car is an absolute joy to get in. I went with the SXT Plus with Trac Pack. The Trac Pack gives it the same suspension as the R/T model, bigger 20' tires, bigger breaks. This car commands attention in B5, ( classic blue). I have had people knock on my door at home randomly to ask me about it. I am 6ft 2" and find this to be one of the roomiest cockpits I have ever sat in, not just sport car but all cars. I generally drive no more than 7k a year in any car I have owned. I have owned everything from a Nissan 240sx to a Toyota Sienna. This car I have driven over 1200 miles in 3 weeks. I use every excuse possible to run out and get in it. Milk, shopping, pick up the kids. The kids, this is not a toy car, it is real. Every morning I drop off my 3 kids to school. They have no problem getting in and out and frankly like having there friends say "Dad has a cool car". :) Yes, the Camaro and Mustang are more sporty but I wanted a car that shows its roots in its styling, I can use it on a long drive for a weekend getaway with the whole family, that's 5 of us. (The trunk is HUGE, bigger than my Kia Optima trunk was) and was practical for driving to the train station for my daily commute. This car is fun. Period. Brings me back to why cars SHOULD ALWAYS be driven by humans, not automated robot cars. One thing - Con. Had to go back and mention it, I do get that V8 envy sound sometimes, not the speed but that sound.... oh that sound.

The challenger scat pack shaker is just a muscle car. It's not the fastest but it's fast at 485 hp. It will definitely turn heads and its the most nostalgic vehicle out there. It puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it. Mopar or no car

I've seen a ton of reviews based on the higher end Challengers, but not so many on the SXT or the SXT plus. Also, I'd like to say that my opinion of this car is only after a couple of days, so it mostly is for the "bigger" guy looking for a comfortable ride in a beautiful car. I'm 6'5", 295 lbs, so when I went out the other day, my sites where set on a Buick Lacrosse, and other similar sized cars. I drove the Lacrosse, and also an Altima, Sonata, Fusion and Mustang (all 2016's). Yes, I stuffed my big ass in all of them, and to be honest, they all had a surprising amount of room. However, just for SnG's, I pulled in the Dodge dealership to look at a Black SXT that was in the front row of the lot. I turned down a side street hoping for a side entrance, which there wasnt, but what I DID get to see was a red SXT plus with the black top package in the back. I instantly fell in love with the looks of this car, but figured no way in hell I would be able to afford it or fit comfortably in it. So i get into the lot, and had to go look at this car. Not only was I absolutely shocked at the 29 thousand and change on the window sticker, but it was a V6, automatic, with cloth interior. 80% of my driving is spent in rush hour traffic, Monday - Friday in New Jersey. The rest of the time is short runs to a store, and of course, my Friday happy hour at the bar with the occasional drive to atlantic city. There is no chance for me to enjoy the power of a V8 during my work commute, and only a moron utilizes that power when leaving the bar. If you drive regularly in jersey, you know the expressway is riddled with troopers. Also, I HATE a leather interior. It is NOT comfortable for me, and it feels like an oven in the summer, an ice box in the winter. Needless to say, everything fit perfect for my tastes and wants in this car. At my size, it was a shocker at how easy getting in and out of this car is. And upon driving it, it drove just as smoothly, if not smoother, then any of the other cars I drove. The cabin is sleek, spacious, and quiet as a mouse which was great when enjoying the stereo system, which is just the 6 speaker stock. I actually had MORE room in this car, and had an easier time getting in and out of this car, then the Lacrosse. So, after my long rambling, if your a guy my size, looking for something that is impossible not to smile while driving, and affordable, you will LOVE this car. And as for the power under the hood, and the style of ride for a longer commute, the trip i took to Atlantic City today answered all of my questions. Acceleration is great, ride is as smooth as riding on glass, and the car is just fun as hell to drive. To be honest, the ride there and back was the best part of the trip (in large part because the blackjack table as Ceasar's whooped my ass). But seriously, I love my car =)

Well after reading all of the reviews and listening how people were raving over there RT Plus, or Shakers, Hellcats etc, I decided to do a review on the SXT which is what I have. Not everyone can afford $40+k for a car, so I decided to go for the base model SXT in white, with Blacktop package, 20" wheels, black aluminum rims, 8.4" Uconnect with Nav, and premium speakers. First off for being the base model even with just a V6, it's awesome. The entire care is white and black which together go beautifully. But the fact that the car is white, rims, spoiler, stripes and fuel door are black, just makes it look amazing!!! Then you have the inside with the huge 8.4" screen, the beautiful instrument cluster, awesome sound system, I mean you can't go wrong. Yeah it is just the base model with extra ad ons, but it suits me just fine!! I'm tired of reading all the reviews and how people are slamming the base model saying it doesn't offer much. BS!!!! For someone wanting a muscle car, but who is on a budget like myself, it's an awesome model to get, especially if you opt to get some of the ad ons like I did, which kept it at around $31k. The V6 engine at 305hp is nothing to be disappointed at, and realistically where are you gonna use more horsepower than that??? 305 gets the job done for me!!! I wish there was a way I could post pictures of my baby!!! She definitely gets a great deal of looks and compliments, and again, is only the base SXT model which I am extremely happy with!!!

2016 TorRed Shaker R/T Plus (8A)

Well, I've only had the TorRed Challenger RT Plus Shaker for a couple of months-2300 miles and I must say it's simply an amazing car. We rented a 2011 RT years ago when we were in Phoenix during the MLB All Star game. The airport rental company ran out of cars that we'd reserved (paid for) months prior. So after a heated discussion, not in a great mood after 12 hours on an airplane, they offered us the Challenger as a consolation prize of sorts. And I must say I was thoroughly impressed! So after our return from Japan the Challenger has been on my "radar". We finally went and test drove the SXT, RT Plus Shaker and the RT Scat Pack. The SXT was very nice, but a bit spartan (at least the one we drove), good power, surprising for a V6. The RT Scat Pack was very nice, loads of power and an amazing exhaust note. But the RT Plus Shaker was right there in the middle for power and every options one could ever want. You can scare yourself with the launch mode, or go into the super track mode and have loads of fun scare the neighbors. When I say; "in the middle for power" don't get me wrong, it has enough power that you can lose your license doing burn outs at stop lights or passing traffic at some crazy unlawful speed. All of the time with a big smile on your face. Yes, from the minute you start it until your put it back in the garage you'll be smiling. It's true the gas mileage is awful, 14~18 around town, maybe 25 on the highway. If you can drive in city traffic at a normal speed, your city miles will improve, but honestly who bought this car for that.The 8AN Uconnect radio is awesome or awful, depends on what your doing. As someone mentioned in an earlier post, it takes a few seconds to re-index your SD card or USB device. It sounds amazing once you get the eq and balance all setup. I will advise against the nav option. For the money you can buy an awesome GPS with lifetime updates, not this thing. The interior is so much improved over the 2011 we drove; dash instrumentation, 8 inch UConnect (the awesome part) has all the driving modes; at least on the R/T Plus Shaker you'll likely need; shift point, paddles, traction control, steering, etc. Seats you can actually keep your butts in all day and rear seats that are usable. If you need or want the family version get the Charger. Also, I'm not sure what is standard on what models, but I recommend the leather seats, Driver Convenience Group, Technology Group and the 8A UConnect radio with the HK sound system, you won't regret it. I never use a sunroof, have one on my 300C (Hemi of course) so we opted out of the sunroof so we don't miss it. The good: That lovely motor and new 8 speed auto transmission, interior, and you'll love that Shaker option. You will get a lot of comments and looks from other drivers. The HK sound is great once setup and all that technology... The bad: Blind spots, but that's why you want (get) cross path/blind spot warning system. The UConnect 8AN nav system is way overpriced, buy your own GPS or use your phone. You'll almost be able to afford those new tires for the price of the 8AN system. The 3 season tires suck in cold or wet weather, but they won't last long anyways!

I never thought I would own a Dodge, but the exterior styling of the Challenger sucked me in, the awesome power plant set the hook, and then the interior redesign in 2015 sealed the deal. It is no sports car, but it is true to muscle car heritage being big, smooth, with gobs of power. It makes a great touring car for two. I thought I wanted a Hellcat, but I was not going to pay $25K over MSRP, and after driving the 392, I have no idea what I would do 222 MORE horsepower. The 392 is a brute as it is and will light-up the back end with ease. So much so, it can be tough to not spin the rear in wet conditions. I decided on the 8-speed auto since my wife cannot drive a stick. This would NOT be the car to learn to row through a manual gear box with tons of power and a firm clutch. On top of that, the auto is quicker 0-60, quicker in the quarter mile, gets better mileage, and allows for adaptive cruise control which is great on the freeway. I love the rain sensing wipers since proper wiper speed to rain ratio is part of my OCD and the auto-dimming head lights are sweet. These are the best head lights I have ever had on a car, much better than my previous car which had HID lights (I do miss the cornering lamps on my last car, though). The front seats are very comfortable, but being a 2-door, they do not have power back adjustment. The car and doors themselves are large so getting in/out in tight city sized spaces can be tough and the cup holder can bang your shin. Getting in the back seat is challenging (no pun intended), but most passengers will forget about that when they get seated in the ultra soft leather... and then you slam their heads into the head rests a few times. :) The tranny is terrific over all, but sometimes it can shift a little hard and be a little snatchy on the throttle at lower speeds since it loves to use compression breaking on deceleration and the MDS shifting from 8 to 4 and back to 8 cylinder mode is sometimes noticeable. But it is typically very smooth...get on the gas from a stand still and she shifts quick and smooth launching you to 60 in what seems like a blink of an eye. The thing will throw down from 8th to 4th in a blink and putting car in track mode makes it even more aggressive holding gears longer. The Mercedes lineage shows through with a ride that is comfortable yet solid in standard mode and the dampers firm up nicely when in the performance settings. The exhaust note is just right and makes the coolest burble on down shifts when in track mode. Stand behind the car when the engine is cold, hit the remote start, and it barks to life with a crack that WILL make you grin ear to ear. The exterior styling makes me weak in the knees every time I see it and believe the design will prove to be a timeless (the sheet metal for the most part already has 8 years under its belt). The 2015 interior update makes it a great place to be as you eat up the pavement. I was a little disappointed in the Harmon Kardon stereo. A couple down points are that some of the controls are behind the shifter making it is easy to bump the shifter into manual mode. Some of the plastic exterior trim pieces could fit better and the plastic may not age very gracefully. The side mirrors are small as part of the style and there is a HUGE blind spot looking over your right shoulder to the rear quarter, but the blind spot monitoring/cross traffic alert/back-up camera help that...plus, you can use the accelerator to clear the blind spot, too. I really think the Chally is a car in a class by itself. If you are looking for a completely FUN car, great for long road trips, you can drive daily (except maybe ice), and shred some tires, it would seem pretty dang hard to go wrong with a Challenger SRT 392. Update 11/2016: I have about 6500 miles on the car now (I often commute on a motorcycle) and have not had any issues. Oil changes are spendy with the special Pennzoil it requires and an SRT filter, but I did it myself. I thought there was a full aero package underneath, but it was just a smallish panel under the engine compartment and cam off with I think 5 screws. The filter sits vertically, so there is a gush of oil that flows back over the filter body. Running in 4-cylinder mode makes the motor sound blah compared to the full octet of pumpers. The tranny is a little clunky in stop and go traffic and the rear diff makes some noise in full lock turns. Other than romping on it on ramps, I drive like a grandpa but generally in horrible traffic, so I'm getting about 15 mpg average mileage. I think you could break into the low/mid 20ish mpg range though on a long drive in ecomode with cruise control set @ 60 in the flats of northern Ohio with a tail wind. Every one rags on the Ford Sync system, but I liked the Sync better than the Uconnect that everyone seems to love. Any way you slice it though, this is a bad a$$ car. Oh, and be ready for pukes in Camaros that want to race.

Had a 2015 Challenger SRT 392 and traded it for a 2016 Hellcat version. liked the 392 but love the Hellcat. Still breaking it in but it runs smoothly and very comfortable. I like the automatic transmission. The sound is louder by about a third over the 392, but that said, both sound great. The navigation is easy to operate and gives turn by turn directions better than any other car including Lexus and Mercedes. Love the car. I have 4000 miles on the car now. Have had no problems and like the car even more than before. I usually trade cars every year, but I think I may just keep this one.

My R/T Plus is a 2016 A8, not a 6M--and it rocks!

I can't pick the exact model that I have, but I have a 2016 R/T Plus with the 8-speed automatic transmission. Now. . .on to the review. Dodge knocked one out of the park with this car! Is it perfect? No. Is it a comfortable, easy to enjoy, good daily driver--and a kick in the pants when you stomp the pedal? Hell, yes! I rented a 6-cylinder version of this car when mine was in the shop. I had the six for a week and was surprised by how often I was pleased with the car so, when I got my car back, I traded it in and picked up a Challenger with a little more pep, a 2016 R/T Plus (which has the 5.7L (350 cid) motor). What surprised me most (after the yee-haw! acceleration) was how thoughtfully laid out and tastefully appointed the interior was. The center console is decidedly non-egalitarian--it's slanted towards the driver (as it should be, this is a driver's car, not a minivan), the cup holders have soft lighting around the rims to help you see them at night, the information center is a snap to learn how to use, and the Driver Information Display cluster (between the tach and the speedometer) is similarly easy to use. And when you're resting your hand on the gear shift lever, the center console controls are literally at your fingertips--brilliant! The torque (which most of us drive) and the horsepower (which some of us drive) are both a seriously legitimate kick in the pants. And I have the SMALLEST and least powerful V-8. Zero to 60 in less than six seconds, zero to 100 in about 12, and zero to goofy grin in nothing flat. The steering is surprisingly responsive and the car feels more nimble than it looks, which is good--because the car is big. Really big. And the hood feels a mile long. I could go on and on about this car but, for someone like me, who learned how to drive on land yachts and grew up driving V-8s, this car is a delicious throwback. It's not without its faults (the gas mileage is just plain bad and the rear pillars make changing lanes an adventure) and it's not for everyone, certainly, but if you've ever had even a secret liking for muscle cars, you owe it to yourself to check out the Challenger. Especially if you're a middle-aged driver who also wants some creature comforts like heated seats, honest to goodness back seats, a usable trunk, and a comfy ride. I'm actually a little embarrassed by how much I wound up loving this car--but, boy, do I! Well done, Dodge-FCA! Well done!

2016 SRT 392 is a great car

Recently took delivery of my 2016 SRT 392, six speed manual. This is a very strong engine/gear box combination, much more than anyone will need for daily driving. The monstrous torque gets you addicted really quick because the car just moves so effortlessly in any situation. This engine is just perfect for this car. The exhaust note is loud from factory, at startup you know you're in for a treat. When cruising the car is quiet, there is some road noise but that's normal for cars like this - don't expect Lexus LS quiet. The manual gear box is very good, the ratios are close to each other and soon you'll be in 5th gear cruising around town, and 6th gear at freeway speeds makes it really quiet without any drone. The hydraulic clutch is also pretty good, and after you get used to the car you won't even feel the gear changes. The infotainment system is upgraded for 2016, now you can customize the lower row of icons just by dragging the ones you want down there. I think this uConnect 8.4AN is the best on the market by a long mile. No German or Japanese system comes close in features and ease of use. The climate controls in the SRT Challenger work very well - I can leave it in auto and it will take care of it. This is a car to keep for longer than most others because not only it looks great, but it sounds great as well and the engine noises are pure pleasure. FCA knocked this one out of the park, this is an icon of a car, renewed and modernized and it feels absolutely great. If you get one you won't regret it for a minute. 7/4/2016 - Update after about 6 months: Excellent, no issues whatsoever, great car!

I went PLUM CRAZY !!!

I just traded in my 2015 Lime Green Challenger RT with 512 miles on it for a 2016 Scat Pack in Plum Crazy Purple. A lot more motor. Huge difference!! Great car and great color. I removed the ugly stripes on the trunk and had the spoiler painted Purple also. Looks great. I've only had it a few days but this is my 3rd Challenger and they were all very nice cars.
