Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger

When thinking of the legacy of the Dodge brand, one word should come to mind: muscle.  At Chapman Dodge, that legacy lives on in the throwback Dodge Challenger and the oft-updated Dodge Charger.

The Dodge Challenger was introduced in its present form in 1970, and it has since been the quintessential “pony car.”  Sporting a massive engine and the low, flat, two-door body befitting of its heritage, the present day Challenger features several trim packages with 4-speed and 5-speed automatic transmissions as well as a 6-speed manual option.  The common thread between every iteration of the Challenger is power: the smallest engine available is a 3.6-liter V6, ranging up to the legendary 392 cubic inch (6.4L) HEMI V8.

Edmunds clocked the 6.4-liter SRT-8 at 12.6 seconds in the quarter-mile, while the base Challenger’s V6 engine manages 27 miles-per-gallon fuel efficiency on the highway.  The Dodge Challenger truly offers everything that a muscle car aficionado desires.

The history of the Dodge Charger is somewhat more complex than that of its pony car counterpart.  The Charger moniker has been used to describe everything from two-door pony cars to the current four-door sedan that deftly masters the challenge of blending performance and comfort together.

Mated to the same engine options as those present in the Challenger, the Charger’s spacious interior received substantial redesigns from previous models to tame its substantial power.  The Charger takes just enough from its muscle car lineage to satisfy your inner gearhead while simultaneously appealing to the mature sensibilities of the 21st Century driver.

Derived from the same Mercedes platform at the Chrysler 300, Edmunds describes the new Dodge Charger as a muscle car that the entire family can enjoy.  Style, performance, and drivability from the track to the city streets – the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger are ready to light up Las Vegas (or anywhere else their driver takes them).
