Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Dodge have reason to celebrate in 2019. The latest Dodge Challenger, the 2019 Dodge Challenger series, has outsold the Chevrolet Camaro over the course of 2018. Dodge Challengers increased in sales over 3 percent from 2017’s numbers. Dodge finished with 66,716 muscle cars sold. That’s a lot of muscle! So, why did the latest Dodge muscle car do so well?

Reasons Why the Dodge Challenger Excelled In 2018

In 2018, there were plenty of reasons car shoppers wanted to buy the latest Dodge Challenger. For starters, the 2019 Dodge Challenger was redesigned and introduced the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye to the Challenger lineup. Unparalleled horsepower is guaranteed regardless of trim an owner chooses, but the top-tier Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye produces 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. The production Challenger  SRT Hellcat Redeye provides a stunning 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and hits a 10.8-second quarter-mile time. That’s not only fast, but it is also outright stunning! Thanks to the strong 6.2-Liter supercharged engine, the Hellcat trim provides drivers with one of the best muscle powertrain options ever produced.

More on the Challenger Success

Part of the success is made possible by the bold engineering and high-performance handling that is provided with every Challenger. So, what did the Challenger sales prove? There’s no doubt the success is evident with Dodge claiming their highest sales numbers since 2008. In fact, the latest Challenger numbers have surpassed the highest selling tally the Challenger ever had from back in 2015 (66,716 sold versus 66,365 vehicles in 2015). The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and SRT Hellcat trims have brought more attention to the brand and helped raised the total sales numbers. The number of Challenger vehicles sold is the only muscle car on the market to post a year-over-year gain, according to Motor1.com.

Ahead of the Competition

The numbers of the Dodge Challenger sold were quite higher than the Chevrolet Camaro. By comparison, the Chevrolet Camaro only sold 50,963 cars despite being new and improved. With a 25 percent decrease from 2017, there’s a lot of questions the executives will be asking about where to take the Camaro going forward.
