If you’re shopping for a comfortable, spacious affordable sports car, but also want a healthy dose of muscle car flair, the 2012 Dodge Challenger is the only game in town. Reviewers agree that the Challenger’s bigger back seat and larger trunk give it an edge when compared with the Chevrolet Camaro or Ford Mustang, but like these rivals, the Challenger also falls short when it comes to interior refinement.

The Challenger is available in three trims: base, R/T and SRT8. The base trim is powered by a new 305-hp 3.6-litre V6 with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The R/T’s 5.7-liter HEMI V8 features 372 horsepower with the standard 5-speed automatic with sequential shift control, and 376 horsepower with the optional 6-speed manual. The SRT8’s 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine is mated to a standard 5-speed automatic with sequential shift control or an optional 6-speed manual, and produces 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Touring suspension, traction control, stability control, 17-inch alloy wheels, KeylessGo entry system, air conditioning and power driver’s seat are standard equipment on the base trim, and the R/T adds performance tuned suspension and steering, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a body color spoiler. The SRT8 features sport suspension with two mode active dampening, Brembo brakes, limited slip differential, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, high intensity headlights, dual hood stripes, heated leather seats and a Boston Acoustic sound system.

2012 Dodge Challenger Interior :
2012 Dodge Challenger Interior. – Reviewer opinion is mixed on the Challenger’s interior. Some note that materials within are soft-touch and of decent quality, while others say there’s no shortage of hard plastics in the cabin. Additionally, the Challenger gets dinged for its deeply set gauges. Auto critics say they can be difficult to read and that the audio controls can be confusing. It’s not all bad, though. Reviewers note that the interior is functional and that all controls are within easy reach. For 2012, Dodge adds an 18-speaker Harmon Kardon stereo and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters to the Challenger’s list of optional equipment.

The Challenger SRT8 392 gets all the R/T’s basic equipment, but adds xenon headlamps, unique 20-inch wheels, sport seats, an upgraded trip computer with real-time performance data, hydraulic power steering (versus electrohydraulic), upgraded brakes and suspension and a one-day driver training course at the Richard Petty Racing School. Optional for the SRT8 are a navigation system and a premium 18-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

2012 Dodge Challenger Engine :
2012 Dodge Challenger Engine. – The base Dodge Challenger comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates 305 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. Most reviewers say that the V6 provides plenty of power, but shoppers looking for some additional thrust can step up to a Challenger R/T, which packs a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 under its hood. The V6 comes with a five-speed automatic transmission, while the Challenger R/T comes with a six-speed manual or an optional five-speed automatic.

When the 5.7-liter V8 is paired to a six-speed manual, the Challenger R/T generates 375 horsepower and 410 pound feet of torque. V8 Challengers equipped with an automatic are slightly less powerful, generating 372 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Regardless of which drivetrain you choose, the Challenger stays true to its muscle car roots with rear wheel drive.
