Guide to buying a Dodge Challenger

In a world where cars matter so much, having a beast in your garage might be one of your biggest desires. Powerful cars like a Dodge Challenger can be a great acquisition if you are well-informed about this car model. Buying a used Dodge Challenger is tricky taking into consideration that you will have to pay attention to every single detail of it. Here are some tips to get you going when wanting to buy a Dodge Challenger:

Engine. Horsepower. Torque

There are several engine options on Dodge Challengers:

  • 4L V8 which comes with 485 horsepower at approximately 6000 rpm and a 475 torque lb-ft
  • 7L V8 which comes with 375 horsepower at approximately 5150 rpm and a 510 torque lb-ft
  • 6L V6 which comes with 305 horsepower at approximately 6350 rpm and a 268 torque lb-ft
  • Supercharged variants which highly boost the maximum horsepower (for example a 6.2L V8 goes from 500 horsepower to 707 horsepower at the absolutely same 6000 rpm and same torque

You can also find other types of engines on a Dodge Challenger if it has been modified or tuned. Buying a used car means you will buy the preferences of a previous owner. Be careful to pay attention to each and every modification that has been made and see if you can profit from offers and packages.

Model

The Dodge Challenger can be found in several models. These are different in terms of features and specs and even look sometimes. Here are the models you will find on the market:

  • SXT – this is the base and the cheapest model. Usually it includes a 3.6L V6 engine mentioned above along with the usual characteristics of this car (ABS, automatic transmission, electric power steering, cluster display, climate control, keyless entry etc.)
  • SXT Plus – this is a midrange model and it is a little more expensive than the simple SXT. It adds a back-up camera, rear –park sensors, a shark fin antenna and wider tires.
  • R/T – this is a V8 model and it is noticeably more expensive than the SXT. It has a 5.7L V8 engine with a 6-speed manual, wide tires and a great exhaust.
  • R/T Plus – the better variant for the R/T which comes with a power tilt/telescoping column steering, leather seats with heat and ventilation, better speakers, an amplifier, a bigger display and a back-up camera.
