Almost scared to ask, but what strengths do the these tremendous powertrains deliver?
Don’t be scared, it’s exciting whether you want to go bazillion miles an hour ASAP or are more about looking good while also conserving fuel! The Challenger delivers a full spectrum of capabilities in this department, plus builds in safety features to make it user-friendly! Look for the standard a TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission on the SRT Hellcat, R/T Scat Pack, and R/T, while there is also a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission standard on the V6 models. The 2020 Dodge Challenger bats a home run with the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, which sports up to 303-hp and 268 lb-ft of torque! Look to the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 on R/T models if you want to see 375-hp and 410 lb-ft of torque in your future, but make sure you also check out the engine in the R/T Scat Pack model as well. That model gets a naturally-aspirated 392 HEMI V-8 with 485-horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque for the utmost in confidence at the drag strip! Then there is the definitive way to boss up with a 717-horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque flaunting supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine standard in the SRT Hellcat! Dodge somehow pulls the ace up its sleeve with the last engine offering, which is within the SRT Hellcat Redeye model, a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V-8 that astounds with up to 797-hp and a pavement-shredding 707 lb-ft of torque! Don’t worry, Launch Control comes with these crazy-fast models as standard!
What do the models have in terms of features?
Eight well-defined models outline the 2020 manifestations of the Challenger: SXT, SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye. Any of these can have one of several cool outside stripe designs applied at the factory as well! An electable Widebody package extends 3.5 inches of width to the body, allowing for wider tires to be put on. This translates essentially to significantly better speeds as the Challenger can then speed through corners even faster than without them. Eighteen-inch Satin Carbon aluminum wheels are what the SXT model rolls in on, and it also has a standard 4-way power driver lumbar adjustable seat, a 12-volt center console power outlet, and an option for a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot. It also reels in a 7.0″ touchscreen for the Uconnect 4 system, Tip Start, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto as standard. The GT model then slides into the mix with features like Integrated Voice Command with Bluetooth, Houndstooth Cloth Seats, 20″ x 8″ Satin Carbon painted wheels, a bright fuel-filler door, and 6-speakers as standard. It also has an SRT front splitter, paddle shifters, and a functioning hood scoop on its Performance Hood! The R/T model channels items such as a Performance Steering & Suspension, an Electronically Controlled Active Exhaust, its own Performance Hood, and 20″ Satin Carbon aluminum wheels. Both Line Lock and Launch Control appear for the R/T Scat Pack, as well as heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. It then throws in 4-wheel disc Brembo performance brakes with 4-pistons as if it were no big deal.
How about those SRT models?
Only the SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye models remain, but that’s more than enough to make the magic happen! The SRT Hellcat model dons a dual-snorkel hood and keeps an After-Run Chiller at its disposal to cool down faster between races. This model goes up to 199-mph, adds on 6-piston Brembo performance brakes up front, 20 x 9.5-Inch Low Gloss Black aluminum wheels, and installs SRT Performance Pages on its 8.4″ touchscreen! Get it in the Widebody style to see 305/35ZR20 All-Season Pirelli PZERO tires on 20 x 11-Inch Carbon Black Forged aluminum wheels. Moving up to the SRT Hellcat Redeye, people tend to drop their jaws in wonderment at the top speed of up to 203-mph, a Bilstein Adaptive Damping Suspension with customizable settings, and the 797-horsepower waiting inside! That one also allows a Widebody setting to be chosen when bought and adds the power to go 0-60 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds! It adds a larger front splitter, 20 x 11-Inch Carbon Black Forged aluminum wheels, the Widebody Fender Flares, an SRT Power Chiller, and the biggest supercharger of all production cars (based on 0-60 times)! Incredible!
Final Thoughts on the 2020 Dodge Challenger
Only one more important area to cover here today, and that is safety! When a vehicle has four different capable braking systems to choose from, you can tell safety is a priority to its maker! It also affords elements such as Forward Collision Warning, adaptive cruise control, Blind-spot Monitoring & Rear Cross Path Detection, and functionality that actively removes rainwater from brake pads as needed, which is called Rain Brake Support. With impact-derailing crumple zones, a high-strength steel frame, advanced airbags, and Hill Start Assist, you will be in great company! Also, there are features such as All-Speed Traction Control, the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera, and possible Automatic High-Beam Headlamps to help keep things easily under your control.
