Used Dodge Challenger for Sale
About The Dodge Challenger
When it comes to modern muscle, the Dodge Challenger makes a compelling purchase. Introduced in 2008, the two-door coupe follows closely in the footsteps of its classic predecessors, offering varying degrees of muscle without sacrificing comfort. The Dodge Challenger saw a significant refresh in 2015, gaining a refreshed grille with headlights featuring quad LED halo rings, new LED tail lights and a revamped interior with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display and retro-styled gauges.

The 2013-2018 Dodge Challenger comes in a staggering number of trims, making the possibilities seemingly endless when it comes to buying this piece of American muscle. Here’s a brief look at some of the popular trims offered during this generation:
The SXT represents the base trim of the 2013-2018 Dodge Challenger. SXT models feature the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth® capabilities, power driver’s seat and heated mirrors. Other standard features include:
- Cloth seat trim
- Driver’s seat lumbar support
- Remote keyless entry
Introduced for the 2017 model year, the GT trim brings all-wheel drive to the table. The all-wheel drive system also features a front-axle disconnect. The GT trim offers many of the same features as the SXT along with several features, including:
- 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine
- Suspension shared with Dodge Charger Pursuit
- Uconnect® 4C NAV with 8.4-inch touchscreen
The R/T trim offers plenty of significant upgrades, including the addition of the 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine, rated at 372 hp with the eight-speed automatic or 375 hp when paired with the six-speed manual transmission. Other features include:
- Available Brembo® four-piston brakes
- Upgraded suspension
- Sport exhaust system

R/T Scat Pack
The R/T Scat Pack kicks things up a notch, thanks in large part to the 485 hp 6.4L HEMI V8 engine that resides in place of the R/T trim’s more pedestrian 5.7L mill. Other features include:
- Premium cloth or Nappa leather seats
- Dodge Performance Pages
- Three-season performance tires
- High-performance suspension with Bilstein® shocks
As the name implies, the SRT 392 features the 485 hp 6.4L HEMI V8 found in the R/T Scat Pack, but adds a few suspension and brake upgrades for added performance.
- Adaptive suspension damping system
- Performance disc brakes with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers
- Unique SRT 392 badging

- 3.70 axle ratio with heavy-duty antispin
- Leather-trimmed seats with Hellcat logo
- Illuminated “air catcher” headlamps
Unveiled in 2018, the SRT Demon is the top dog of the Dodge Challenger lineup. This unique trim features an 840 hp version of the supercharged 6.2L SRT Hellcat HEMI V8 along with a few other goodies. It’s also the only Challenger that comes with only a driver’s seat – the passenger seat and rear bench seat are optional features. Other features for this trim include:

Reviews for Dodge Challenger
Great car. Beautiful, smooth and powerful.
It's a beautiful car. You'll definitely notice a lot of heads turning when you're driving this car. The handling is tight and the power you feel when you step onto the gas pedal is strong. It's very roomy inside. I have three kids and they all fit in the back comfortably. The roar of the engine is beautiful. My first week of driving this car consisted of me turning off the radio and just listening to the hum of the engine as I drove along. My only gripe about this car would be that it's a gas guzzler. I removed the air filter and replaced it with a cold air intake. I noticed an extra few miles per gallon and it also makes the Hemi roar a little louder when you step on the pedal. It was a win win. Overall, I really love this car.

So Tough, Powerful, and yet it's totally cozy too!
For a Retro Looking Muscle Car, this car has SO MUCH SPACE & ROOM (even in the back seats). I am 5' 8" tall and my friend who has the same car is 6' 4" tall and we both love the comfort and the power in this car. I simply don't know how they made the car look and feel so tough and powerful and yet it's totally cozy too! People who own Camaro's and Mustangs surely haven't test driven a Challenger. The best part in comparison is the Base model car has more standard features that usually would be add-ons with other cars. If you get this car, make sure you get a REVERSE CAMERA and MyGig NAVIGATION and you'll never switch cars again.
- Technology and Entertainment: Too many features to list.
Fun Fun Fun!
I love my Challenger. I haven’t had this much fun driving since owning my ‘63 T-Bird many years ago. It’s quick and responsive. This car is made for the drivers experience. The seats seem to wrap around you and the dash is sleek with an all digital instrument cluster. A large 8 inch screen sits front and center angled for the drivers eyes. It features an awesome sound system with SiriusXM radio and back up camera. Did I mention how cool you’ll look in this car? I get a lot of head turns and “challenges” wherever I go. It’s a beautiful car inside and out and super fun to drive!
- Ride and Handling: Fun to drive
- Styling: It’s a beautiful car
- Dashboard: Large easy to read and customizable
- Interior Space: Rear seats don’t have ample leg room
