2010 Dodge ChallengerPhilip Gordon - Delmar, DE09/22/2016
This car has been full of great surprises. Dodge outdid themselves in engineering an all around practical muscle car. From daily commutes to long road trips, this car is designed to make any trip enjoyable. It has plenty of power when you want it, and gets acceptable highway mileage for a V8. I tend to average around 28 mpg on the highway and 18 in town. It has been low maintenance and looks great from every angle.
2013 Dodge ChallengerBarron Crist - Hallandale Beach, FL08/04/2015
For anyone looking for a beautiful muscle car that represents the early seventies either the R/T or SRT Challenger is it. The car is very quick, has a nice ride (not jarring like the Mustang or Camaro) and handles extremely well for a car this size. My Challenger R/T is plum purple and I get complemented on the car almost everytime I'm out driving it.
