Under the Challenger's Hood
Every Challenger has been configured to offer an amazing driving experience, starting with the base Pentastar V6 and continuing all the way to the top SRT Hellcat. With incredible power, engaging handling, and a smooth riding quality, the Challenger will turn every ride into an adventure. The base Challenger SXT is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that can produce 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. The vehicle comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but Dodge will alternatively offer their fantastic all-wheel drive system with the Pentastar engine. This will provide an engaging and sporty performance for your everyday ride, but enhance the capability for inclement weather conditions. There are three other optional engines that can be equipped with the Challenger, including the 5.7-liter Hemi V8, the 6.4-liter Hemi V8, and the awe-inspiring 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8.

Optional features can include a navigation system or a sunroof, though the list is almost endless.
