The 2023 Dodge Challenger is a modern-day muscle car with classic styling

Dodge brought the Challenger back to its lineup in 2008, and the retro-styled two-door was an immediate hit. While the car hasn't changed much in style since then, the American car brand has kept attention on this classic by updating its interior and tech and continuing to give it higher performance thanks to a range of high-output V8 engines. But the 2023 model year is the last for this proper American muscle car as Dodge transitions to electric powertrains. To celebrate, Dodge has introduced several Last Call special editions to the Challenger lineup for the 2023 model year. The 2023 Dodge Challenger is offered in 10 different trims, ranging from the V6-powered SXT to the dragstrip-ready SRT® Demon 170, boasting more than 1,000 horsepower from its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. Dodge offers the Challenger SXT and GT with all-wheel drive, but all others only put power to the road via the rear wheels. Higher-performance versions are also available with a wide body for a more aggressive look and improved performance.

5 reasons to buy the 2023 Dodge Challenger

What We Like

Performance: Dodge offers a wide range of performance levels to suit a variety of buyers. The base-level motor puts out more than 300 horsepower, and things can get very exciting with the higher-level Hellcats that boast more than 700 hp. These cars are quick, and while they're too heavy to handle like a sports car, the ride is comfortable and they’re entertaining to drive on a curvy road.

Interior: The Challenger may look like it's all about performance, but the inside is surprisingly spacious and comfortable. The front seats are stylish and provide excellent support. The rear seat is a bit tight, but it is much larger than the back seats of competitors like the Chevy Camaro. The controls are well laid out for ease of use, and there's reasonable storage for front passengers.

Technology: Dodge's Uconnect® is one of the easier-to-use infotainment systems on the market. The available 8.4-inch touchscreen display is nicely integrated into the dashboard and features a bright, easy-to-read screen. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay® connectivity is standard, and the voice interface works quite well. Dodge also offers Performance Pages that let the driver customize the gauge display to track acceleration and braking.

What Needs Improvement

Fuel economy: As is often the case, high performance comes at the cost of fuel economy. While the V6-powered Challenger SXT rates an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined, the supercharged HEMI V8 gets just 15 mpg combined.

Driving the Challenger Hellcat Redeye with 800-plus hp with a heavy foot will quickly bring that figure even lower.
