2018 Dodge Challenger Houston TX
2018 Dodge Challenger at Northwest Dodge
The muscle-car class is one that has been hotly contested for years as car companies try to give you both power and style. However, one muscle-car has always managed to stand out. The Dodge Challenger has maintained a retro styling with modern touches, giving you both the old, and the new, all encompassed in a powerful machine. The 2018 Challenger continues to build upon this long legacy, and nothing suits a muscle-car more than a show-stopping trim called the SRT Demon. The Demon was made for the drag-strip, and powers to the finish line with 840 horsepower. Only 3,000 of these models were created. Challenger hasn’t forgotten about the other models. The SRT Widebody receives a few cosmetic updates, and every model is receiving Android Auto, a rearview camera, and Apple CarPlay.

What powertrains come with the Challenger?
Muscle-cars demand powerful engines and the Challenger comes with five engines: the 3.6-liter V6, the 5.7-liter HEMI V8, the 6.4-liter HEMI V8, the SRT Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8, and the SRT Demon’s supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8. The GT model, matched with the 3.6-liter V6 engine, comes with all-wheel drive. Usually, this vehicle comes with rear-wheel drive. The most power you’ll find is the SRT Demon, as the 6.2-liter supercharged engine can produce a mind-boggling 770 pound-feet of torque and 840 horsepower with 100 octane. An eight-speed automatic transmission comes with these engines, however, there is a six-speed manual transmission that is also offered.
