What Engines does the 2022 Challenger Offer?
As we mentioned above, the 2022 trim level lineup for the Dodge Challenger contains eight different models. To accommodate this diverse array of vehicles, Dodge has supplied us with six different engines, ranging from strong to totally unstoppable! The SXT and GT both feature the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, rated at 303 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. Moving up to the RT, you’ll find a 5.7-liter HEMI V8, with up to 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque when you opt for the standard 6-speed manual transmission rather than the available 8-speed automatic. Next up is the R/T Scat Pack, which continues to up the ante with its 6.2-liter V8 rated at 485 horsepower and475 lb-ft of torque. Next, there’s the first of two Hellcat variations, with its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, delivering 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. If that’s not enough for you, the Hellcat Redeye kicks things up a notch with its own version of the 6.2-liter V8, this time rated at an outstanding 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. Just when you thought the Challenger couldn’t go any further, Dodge introduced the SRT Super Stock! This model features a specially-calibrated 6.2-liter V8 that kicks out an outstanding 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. These last three engines all pair exclusively with the 8-speed automatic transmission.
What are the Challenger’s Performance Features?
The Challenger’s incredible powertrain options certainly help its high-powered speed and racing performance, but that’s only the beginning! The whole lineup offers a wide array of performance features that enhance your driving experience in every way. For example, the Challenger features four-piston and six-piston Brembo performance brakes, allowing you to stop on a dime, even after reaching record-breaking speeds. The Challenger also offers a performance hood with functional features like hood scoops, dual snorkels, and a front splitter that cuts through the air, reducing wind resistance. The snorkels aid in the Challenger’s cold-air intake, keeping the engine at a proper temperature. For extra engine maintenance, there’s also an available Power Chiller, which will continue to cool the engine even after the car comes to a stop, which provides the recovery you need after a big race to keep your engine working its best. If you’re looking to really make the most of your acceleration, you can use line lock, which holds the front wheels in place while the back wheels spin, warming them up for you while also creating an impressive burnout.
What are the Design Features of the 2022 Dodge Challenger?
The Dodge Challenger is known for its distinctive appearance, which celebrates the retro look and feel of a classic 70s coupe. However, the Challenger is fully decked out in modern features to keep you riding in style! For example, you can find heated houndstooth performance seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Challenger lineup also includes the Uconnect 4C infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Performance Pages that offer advanced settings and additional information about your Challenger’s various capabilities. For a bold look, you can also opt for the Widebody package on upper trim levels like the Hellcat Redeye. This adds 3.5 inches of overall width to the car, as well as upgraded suspension and braking, and 305/35ZR20 all-season Pirelli® performance tires. Speaking of tires, if you opt for the SRT Super Stock, you’ll be getting the only muscle car on the market with standard drag radials! These are the 315/40R18 Nitto Nt05R drag radials, for excellent road grip. With the new Jailbreak model, you can fully customize your Challenger’s appearance, from its wheels, brake calipers, and stripes, to the seats and interior accents!
