Let us introduce you to the car that needs no introduction, the myth, the legend, the 2019 Dodge Challenger. This 'Pony Car' traces its roots back to the incredible fist generation 1970 model, and hasn't lost any of the original muscle, after all, the current generation Challenger holds the prestigious title of 'Fastest, Most Powerful Muscle Car, Ever'. The 2019 Challenger is a perfect blend of track inspired style and performance, and yet remains perfectly useable as an every day car.

 

Now it's time to get on with the show! We proudly present, the 2019 Dodge Challenger.


Exterior

In the true spirit of the Pony Car, the 2019 Dodge Challenger is not only sporty and aggressive looking, it's also customizable. With a range of available racing stripes, side stripes, hood scoops, and unique graphics to choose from, you'll leave those around with no doubt as to who just rolled in to town. The overall profile bears more than a striking resemblance to the classic '71 Challenger; a long hood - check, a short tail - check, even down to the rising rear haunches, front split grille, and signature round head lamps of the first true Dodge Challengers of the muscle car era.

 

Form and function: The 2019 Dodge Challenger has been designed with pure performance in mind, take for example the head lamps, at first glance, what do you see? Head lamps, right? Look again; notice the available Illuminated, Air Catcher Head Lamps, a feature that actively absorbs cool air while the vehicle is in motion to assist in keeping the engine cool. 

When you inevitably pass everyone in your way, the only thing they're going to see is the classically styled, full width rear LED split tail lamps. Featuring an attractive gloss black surround, it seems almost a shame you can't see them yourself while driving!

 

We briefly mentioned hood scoops, but with this many options, we simply have to go in to more detail; you'll have 4 to choose from, depending on your desired packages and trim, including the SRT Dual Snorkel Hood, the R/T and GT single scoop, the R/T Scat Pack triple scoop hood, and the functional Shaker hood. These scoops can be combined with MOPAR cold air intakes, dual air extractors, or engine mounted high flow cold air induction to ensure that none of this design is just for show.

This really is the car for you if you like having choices! The 2019 Challenger is available in any one of an incredible 14 colours, that's right fourteen colour choices. Anyone would think you were spoiled! You like understated? You've got it, lots of discreet hues are available. You want everyone to see you coming? No problem, 'Go Mango' and 'Yellow Jacket' are about as bright as it gets!

 

 

Interior

Talk about driver centric! The 2019 Dodge Challenger really is a driver's car, and as any gear head knows, one of the keys to creating a legendary driver's car, is a properly designed cockpit. From this, we see that there are no after thoughts in the Challenger, with everything thoughtfully designed and laid out to produce the finest automotive experience possible. It's also proof that the interior layout doesn't have to be complicated or overly showy to be beautiful and functional too; It just has to be high quality, and properly designed. The 2019 Challenger is equipped with an as standard leather wrapped steering wheel for excellent grip and long range comfort. Also standard, a 10 way power driver's seat, allowing you to get in to the best possible position for maximum driveability.

 

We mentioned high quality, and of course this means authentic components in the Challenger's cockpit, we're talking real stamped aluminium trim, with no coated plastic in sight, and heritage inspired Tic-Toc-Tach gauges, which give a subtle nod to the rich history of the Challenger model.

Continuing the personalization that's available on the exterior, the interior affords even more customization opportunities. You'll love the countless available combinations of colours and materials, from premium cloths with attractive hounds tooth pattern, to luxury leathers, including the supple Laguna Leather, found as standard on the SRT 392 and Hellcat trims.

 

One of the many benefits of the Challenger over all other cars in its segment; seating. Doesn't sound too exciting at first, but when you realize that it is the only car in its class with comfortable seating for 5, you'll see the 2019 Dodge Challenger in a whole new light. This pony car is not only a dream to drive, but it's also a useable daily driver for families. No other pony car can claim that! On top of the functional fifth seat, the Challenger also boasts best in class head room, best in class rear seat leg room and best in class cargo volume, with 459 litres of storage available.

 

The 2019 Dodge Challenger also benefits from an advanced electronic shifter, that acts like a traditional shifter, bringing real feel back the equation. A small, but effective feature, this shifter gives clear and physical feedback as to the gear position for the ultimate driving experience.

 

Infotainment

The 2019 Dodge Challenger goes out of its way to prove that owning a thrilling muscle car doesn't mean you have to sacrifice luxury features and exciting interior tech, quite the opposite in fact, this pony car offers some of the best infotainment equipment in the business; starting with the incredible Uconnect multimedia centres.

The Uconnect 4 multi media entertainment system is a standard feature on the 2019 Dodge challenger, it features a high resolution touch screen measuring in at a huge 7 inches. Uconnect 4 of course comes with Bluetooth streaming audio for easy access to your entire music library.

For the ultimate in compatibility with smart phones, the 2019 Dodge Challenger is equipped as standard with Apple Car Play, and Android Auto, as a result, most will find it a seamless process to link their smart phone with Uconnect.

Uconnect also provides the ability to stay connected with your 2019 Dodge Challenger anywhere you go by means of the Uconnect app! Download it to your smart phone and you'll be able to start the car, set the AC or heating running, lock and unlock the doors, even honk the horn! A whole world of ability is opened up to you, remotely.

 

If 7 inches isn't enough for your taste, consider an upgrade to the Uconnect 4C or 4C Nav version of the system, with a gargantuan 8.4 inch display (of course it's the largest in its class), you'll have the clearest view possible! The touch screen features intuitive control, with swipe through menus, as well as pinch to zoom, anybody familiar with operating a modern smart phone will find the Uconnect system a breeze to use.

The Uconnect system doesn't just look pretty, it's as functional as they come too. With a host of powerful apps pre loaded to it, you'll have everything you need right at your fingertips.

Just hit the SOS button in the car on or on your Uconnect smart phone app, and a Sirius Guardian will assist in connecting you to the most appropriate source of help.

For real world driving info, the user configurable Driver Information Digital Cluster can't be beat. This 7 inch display gives vital statistics to the driver at a glance, including performance features like 0-60 time, and a lap timer, as well as available turn by turn navigation

 

Performance

Finally, we get to performance. After all, you're reading an article about the 2019 Dodge Challenger, so we're sure you've been dying to get to this part!

Starting small(er) but mighty, the base Dodge Challenger comes with the tried and true 3.6 litre Pentastar V6. Competitors think that a turbocharged inline 4 counts as muscle - Dodge beg to differ! The V6 motor features dual overhead cam shafts, a high flow intake with exhaust ports, and a healthy 305 horsepower, with 268 pound feet of torque. Oh, and did we mention it does all of that and still delivers up to 30 miles per gallon. More miles, equals more smiles, never has this been truer than in a Dodge Challenger!

 

Moving on, R/T trim Challengers come with the legendary 5.7 litre Hemi V8. With a classic muscle car rumble, this powerplant further improves performance and does so ensuring maximum efficiency, putting out 375 horsepower and a mighty 410 pound feet of torque, and still achieving up to 25 miles per gallon.

375 Horses not enough? Consider an upgrade to the Scat Pack, this will net you an additional 110 horsepower (up to 485) and an extra 65 pound feet of torque (for a total of 475), by way of the 392 Hemi V8 powered by SRT. This takes things to a whole new level, 0 to 60 comes in just a hair over 4 seconds, and right out of the box you'll be hitting the quarter mile in about 12 and a half seconds; but remember - enjoy responsibly!

 

Of course, performance is about more than just brute power, the 2019 Dodge Challenger goes out of its way to provide an incredible all around driving experience. For example, a standard feature across the V8 models is the active exhaust system, it brings about an incredibly aggressive exhaust note, you know that unmistakable burble of real American muscle. Available three mode electronic stability control assists in taming this beast, but for those seeking the real sense of what it's like to drive a Challenger, you'll have a full off mode, which literally turns off all electronic driver aids. The 2019 Challenger features electric power steering for incredible feel and nimble handling in all conditions and at all speeds. If you're a traffic light warrior, you'll definitely appreciate the available launch control feature too, this system is calibrated to bring you the fastest possible standing start for a truly thrilling experience.

The transfer all of this power from the motor to the road is taken care of in one of two ways, the 8 speed Torque Flite automatic transmission, or the 6 speed manual box from TREMEC.

The Torque Flite auto tranny provides smooth, accurate shifting, for excellent performance and great fuel economy. If you prefer a little more control over your shifts, the available TREMEC 6 speed manual will give you just that.

 

The Challenger is available with sport tuned, performance tuned or high performance suspension each providing a different ride suited to the needs of the owner. Sport tuned suspension includes upgraded springs, sway bars, as well as Bilstein high performance shocks. It is a half inch lower than standard for sportier handling and more stable cornering. Performance tuned suspension brings to the table independent short/long arm front suspension and five link rear suspension with coil springs, gas charged monotube shocks, and stabilizer bars. At the back is an isolated suspension cradle. At the upper end of proceedings, is the high performance suspension system; this incredible upgrade is standard on the 392 Hemi V8 models, and includes Blistein high performance shock absorbers, steering knuckles and suspension geometry, all adding up to the ultimate in balance, cornering and steering responsiveness.

We all love going fast, but we also need to make sure we can stop too! Dodge figured you'd feel this way, they've equipped the 2019 Challenger with some of the best stoppers going! The V6 powered models come with a sport brake system, featuring 12.6 inch front and rear vented rotors for great braking performance. Also available, the Performance Brake System, with bigger 13.6 inch vented front rotors and dual piston sliding callipers, stopping distance is reduced significantly - upgrade to the Super Track Pak to get performance brake linings for reduced fade when braking heavily. If you're running a 392 6.4 litre Hemi V8, you'll get premium Brembo 4 piston callipers, with 14.2 inch front rotors, and 13.8 inch rear rotors, for breath taking braking ability, we're talking 60 to 0 in just 117 feet! 

 

The 2019 Dodge Challenger also includes all speed traction control, which assists in maintaining traction and stability by applying brake pressure to any slipping wheel, as well as by reducing engine power as necessary to help those tires lock back in to the black top again.

Any motoring purist will tell you that the best performance cars feature 50/50 weight distribution (or as close as possible anyway!), a big, powerful motor up front, and power through the rear wheels, and if you've been paying attention up to now, you'll know that the Challenger fits this bill to a tee.

To save weight, and improve on the power to weight ratio, the 2019 Challenger features cast aluminium axles, and not only are they lighter, they are also more durable, thanks to the four bolt design.

 

SRT (Hellcat, Hellcat Redeye & Demon)

 

The Dodge SRT models have become truly iconic, and rightly so. As the world's most powerful factory delivered muscle cars, their legendary status is definitely assured. SRT, which of course, stands for Street and Racing Technology is the Racing division that Dodge turn to when they need the purest performance vehicles, and in this case, that's what they got. Introducing the  Hellcat, Hellcat Redeye, and the record breaking Dodge Demon.

The Challenger SRT Hellcat is powered by a supercharged 6.2 litre HEMI V8, it strikes fear in to the hearts of exotics and supercars with its 717 horsepower and 650 pound feet of torque.

The SRT Hellcat Redeye is said to have been possessed by the Demon! With an incredible 797 horsepower, and 707 pound foot of torque, it has truly been sent to destroy anything put in its path!

Finally, the SRT Demon. The record breaker. Featuring the highest horsepower of any production muscle car, and claiming the title of most powerful V8 engine ever produced. It features 25 major performance upgrades over the already incredible Hellcat, including a larger supercharger, increased boost pressure, higher rev limit, an extra dual stage fuel pump, and a larger air induction box. At 1.8 G, the Demon produces the highest G Force by a production car, and features the first ever torque reserve launch system in a production car. Here's where it gets really interesting; the Dodge Hellcat SRT Demon has been officially rated as the world's fastest quarter mile production car at just 9.65 seconds, and also stakes its claim as the world's fastest 0 to 60 production car at just 2.3 seconds. Wow. Just wow. For real perspective, bear in mind that the Demon beats competition in these categories from a $1.6 million hypercar!

Oh, and did we mention that there is so much torque, that the Dodge Hellcat SRT Demon is the first production car EVER to be able to pop a wheelie?

 

Safety

Drive a little more comfortably, knowing that your high performance muscle car is also an incredibly safe place to be! The 2019 Dodge Challenger features available automatic high beam head lamps, switching from high to low beam when the sensors detect oncoming traffic. It also features available blind spot monitoring, keeping you spatially aware on the road, rear quarter mounted sensors detect other vehicles encroaching in to your blind spots, alerting you by visual signals. Available adaptive cruise control uses radar to detect, and set the distance from the car in front while in cruise control - if they slow down, so do you, for a safe and consistent following distance. Available full speed forward collision warning with active braking prefills the brakes and transmits audible warnings as well as visual proximity warnings, and if you fail to take action, the system will apply the brakes for you to assist in avoiding frontal collision.

 

  

The 2019 Challenger features standard Park View rear back up camera for an enhanced view when backing up, and thanks to the crumple zones and solid frame, remains strong even in the event of the unthinkable.
