2012 Dodge Challenger Overview

The 2012 Dodge Challenger has not changed much since its 2011 update. Thanks to the powerful engine, exciting drive and refreshed interior, the 2012 Challenger's latest overhaul delivers a significant improvement over previous incarnations and gives a respectful nod to its muscle car lineage.

Features & Specs

With many different feature packages to maximize personalization options, the 2012 Dodge Challenger outfits each trim level quite nicely. For anyone looking for a lot of convenience features, look to the SRT Plus trim. It is equipped with heated steering wheel, nappa leather seats, ventilated front seats, 8.4in Uconnect, rear parking sensors, backup camera and a garage door opener.

Design & Performance

The Dodge Challenger had a major design overhaul in 2011, and those design features carried over to the 2012 edition. The 2012 maintains the refined exterior style, new engine options, an upgraded suspension. The Challenger fully lives up to muscle car expectations and packs big V6 and V8 engines under the hood alongside rear-wheel drive. The handling is controlled and the steering is composed. Although it is more fuel efficient than its predecessors, the 2012 Challenger still struggles to stack up when it comes to fuel efficiency. Higher trim levels with bigger engines will run dry much quicker than the likes of the base model.

Powertrain & Engine

The standard powertrain on the 2012 Challenger is a 3.6L V6 engine that is capable of producing 305-horsepower. It can be swapped out for the 5.7L V8 engine or the 6.4L V8 engine, both of which significantly increase the Challenger's capabilities. In fact, the SRT-8 trim level comes the 6.4L V8 engine standard. All three engines can be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission with a six-speed manual option. All trim levels of the 2012 Challenger offer available rear-wheel drive.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2012 Challenger was already an intimidating presence on the road. After taking design cues from the classic 1971 Challenger, the front end of the vehicle is significantly more retro-inspired than its immediate predecessors. On the inside, the 2012 Challenger meets driver expectations, featuring modern amenities, comfortable seating and a quiet cabin. Pulse-quickening engine revs can be enjoyed when pushing the 2012 Challenger to accelerate quickly.
