Behold the 2016 Dodge Challenger
The 2016 Dodge Challenger coupe recently earned the highest safety rating possible from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: five-stars. While the line has been available since 1958, the beloved sports car has continued to capture the hearts of car lovers everywhere through continued improvements in safety features, aesthetic features, and affordability. Any Dodge car dealership would be happy to display this in their showroom.
The 2016 Challenger obtained four stars in the front crash test, five stars in the side crash test, and four stars in the rollover crash test. It also comes equipped with excellent standard safety equipment including anti-lock brakes, traction control, electronic stability control, and seven airbags. Advanced safety options are available for the especially safety conscious drivers such as blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and rear cross-path detection.
The Challenger is expected to offer five trim levels: SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, R/T Plus, R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, R/T Scat Pack, 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat. Each trim features the coupe body style, with costs ranging from $26,000 to $63,000 and customizable features available from interiors, wheel options, and colors.
The style of the car is just as what fans would expect a Challenger to look like, with an easily identifiable aesthetic, no matter the trim. The Challenge retains its rear- wheel-drive legacy. Base suspension appears to be firmer. The design is exaggerated in the hood, long auto body, and bold design.
The Hellcat models appear to be the most popular choice in terms of performance at 707 horsepower, and while maintaining a smooth ride, with evaluators suggesting a significantly smoother ride than the 2015 model.
With all of the trim and customization options available to the consumer, competitors are going to have a hard time going up against the 2016 Challenger. The promotion of the Hellcat supercharged V8 in the Dodge Challenger and Charger in 2015 was a great success, so much so that production could hardly keep up with demand. In 2016, doubled production is in order.
