The Dodge Challenger is one of the most iconic muscle cars in history and the 2019 model is no exception. It is modern, sporty, and is able to reach record-level speeds. Now the only question is, which trim level will you choose?
The 2019 SXT trim level may be considered the entry-level Challenger, but it is still equipped with many worthwhile features. The SXT is available in either a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive powertrain. The all-wheel-drive system is class-exclusive with many additional technologies that allow you to transition between all-wheel and rear-wheel drive as needed. It has a capable 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with 305 horsepower. The SXT comes with 18-inch satin carbon aluminum wheels.
The GT trim level is a step up from the SXT. The interior features Houndstooth cloth performance seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with sporty paddle shifters. The GT also comes equipped with exterior performance parts including a hood, splitter, steering, and tighter suspension. The entire design of the GT is completed with 20-inch granite crystal aluminum wheels. The GT and SXT come in a Mango orange color that is exclusive to these trim levels.
Upgrading to the 2019 R/T will get you an upgrade in the engine to a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with 375 horsepower. The R/T also comes with a six-speed manual transmission and an electronically controlled active exhaust system. With the 2019 R/T, there are available add-on packages like the Shaker Package, that allow you to customize your performance and design preferences.
The R/T Scat Pack gives drivers even more power with a 392 HEMI V-8 engine for a powerful 485 horsepower and 485 pound-feet of torque. Paired with the powerful engine set up are four-piston Brembo performance brakes and a line lock and launch control feature. Scat Pack drivers can also opt for the available wheel flares which add more width to them.
The SRT Hellcat takes speed to the next level with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT V-8 engine with an outstanding 717 horsepower with 656 pound-feet of torque. It has the same performance parts as the Scat Pack, with the addition of Brembo performance front brakes and an after-run chiller to keep the engine cooled.
For maximum power and speed, consider the 2019 Challenger Hellcat Redeye. Its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat High Output V-8 engine with 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque has earned it the title of the most powerful and fastest muscle car in its category. In order to reach these impressive speed capabilities, it also comes with a lighter body frame, snorkel hood, and cold air intake.
As you can see, you have many choices available when choosing your ideal Dodge Challenger. The base trim level offers exciting performance, but upgrading to any of the other trim levels takes that excitement to the next level.
