The 2022 Dodge Challenger is the perfect summer performance vehicle

June 28,2022

When we see the Dodge Challenger, we tend to think that it’s the perfect car for a drag strip or to turn some heads on a Friday night. We also sometimes hear that the Challenger isn’t good on a track because it’s too heavy, or that it’s strictly a summer car. Well, not exactly. Yes, the 2022 Dodge Challenger continues to turn heads and some models are definitely quarter-mile crushers, but the reality is that the Challenger is a much more balanced car than we’d think and it is perfectly capable of serving as a daily driver. 
Several Versions of the 2022 Dodge Challenger Are Available to You
The Dodge Challenger comes standard with a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine that delivers an impressive 303 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. With cashback incentives, the starting price of a new Challenger is a lot lower than you think, and you will have trouble finding another vehicle in this price range that has more power. You also will have trouble finding another performance car that has this much presence on the road and that turns heads this easily for the price you will pay for your Challenger.
The Pentastar engine, one of the best-selling in the country, has been listed multiple times as one of the best engines according to WardsAuto. Needless to say, this engine is reliable. In the 2022 Challenger, it is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
If you want more power and sound from the engine, you can turn to the legendary 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine producing 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. This engine allows the 2022 Challenger to reach 100 km/h in approximately 5.0 seconds. It can also be delivered with a TREMEC six-speed manual transmission for indescribable driving pleasure.
Speaking of driving pleasure, the Challenger SRT also offers a V8 engine HEMI but, this time, with 6.4 litres, which delivers a mind-boggling 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. You won’t have any trouble leaving marks on the road! For even more demonic performances, take a look at the Challenger SRT Hellcat. Here you have a future classic that gives you over 700 horsepower and sounds like nothing else on the road.
Drive Your Challenger Year-Round with the GT Version
Did you know that it is also possible to get a Dodge Challenger with all-wheel drive? Powered by the V6 engine, the Challenger SXT and GT are the only four-wheel drive cars in its segment. This means you don’t have to stow away your Challenger when the snow starts to fall. In the meantime, you will enjoy one of the discernable, impressive, and sporty modern muscle cars you can buy today. The Challenger makes every summer drive a memorable experience.
