2014 Dodge Challenger Reviews, Specs and Prices – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Dodge Challenger Redesign. 2014 Dodge Challenger Concept is one brand new car from Dodge that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Dodge Challenger Quotes.
There are basically two ways to assess the 2014 Dodge Challenger: You can view it as an homage to classic muscle cars, or you can compare it to other contemporary coupes. Either way, this two-door behemoth generally hits the spot. Pugnacious yet practical, rowdy yet refined, the Challenger possesses a surprisingly diverse skill set. Its sheet metal may be unabashedly retro, but the Challenger has a lot more to offer than just nostalgia.
The Challenger stays closer to the original design formula than the other models that have attempted to go retro with their design, and in the process, it’s managed to span both classy and cartoonish in way that’s stylish, rather than polarizing. Vivid paint colors, classic long nose and flat sheet metal all call back to the muscle cars of the Sixties and Seventies. The SRT models add some of the most aggressive, most attractive details from muscle-car history, with functional brake ducts, deeper air dams, and options for a Ram air hood and racing stripes. Inside, the design is modern, but borders on spartan, which leaves options like the pistol grip shifter feeling a little out of place at times.
That slightly larger size pays dividends inside, where the Challenger is the only one of the muscle coupes to offer seating for five. Technically, access to the back seat involves some contortion, and you’ll only have two adults try sitting back there, but it’s doable. In front, nice supportive seats and plenty of headroom (much more than the Camaro, thankfully). And at 16 cubic feet, the trunk is larger than those of some sedan models.

The SXT starts with the V6 engine, 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and ignition, full power accessories, cruise control, automatic climate control, a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, a six-way power driver seat (with power lumbar adjustment), a 60/40-split-folding rear seat, a trip computer and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack.
The optional SXT Plus package adds foglights, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, illuminated visor mirrors, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and an upgraded sound system with satellite radio and an iPod/USB audio interface.
In contrast to the Challenger’s brash exterior, the interior is oddly generic. A few styling cues, like the large beveled dashboard and distinctive shifter knobs, are reminiscent of Challengers past, but overall, there’s a distinct lack of panache. Due to the Challenger’s high beltline and chunky rear roof pillars, rearward visibility is also lackluster.
Continuing with the SXT packages, the Interior Appearance Group (also offered on R/T) includes metal-accented pedals, a car cover, upgraded floor mats and a T-handle shifter. The Rallye Redline edition is a Super Sport Group variant with the metal pedals, the T-handle shifter, red-accented black wheels, a big red exterior stripe and available red leather upholstery. The Electronics Convenience group includes heated mirrors, remote start and displays for tire pressure and outside temperature. The Sound Group II package features an upgraded seven-speaker sound system, and it can be paired to an optional 6.5-inch touchscreen interface. The optional navigation system employs the same touchscreen.
All 2014 Dodge Challengers are rear wheel drive. The base SXT is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 305 hp and 268 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic is standard. EPA fuel economy estimates stand at 18 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined.
The Challenger R/T gets a 5.7-liter V8 and a standard six-speed manual transmission that harnesses 376 hp and 410 lb-ft. When hooked up to the available five-speed automatic, the “Hemi” V8’s output drops slightly to 372 hp and 400 lb-ft. In Edmunds testing, a manual-equipped Challenger R/T went from zero to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds; the automatic raises that to 5.8 seconds. Quick as they are, both times are still a bit slower than what you can expect from a V8-powered Camaro or Mustang. Fuel economy is 16/25/19 for the automatic, with the manual getting 15/23/18.
The Challenger R/T reverts to 18-inch wheels, cloth upholstery, non-heated seats and the entry-level speakers, but it upgrades to the 5.7-liter V8 engine and otherwise enjoys the same features as the SXT Plus. The R/T Plus package adds a security alarm, rear parking sensors, and the rest of the features of the SXT Plus that aren’t already standard. The R/T Classic package includes the R/T Plus items as well as 20-inch “heritage-style” wheels, black side stripes, functional hood scoops and xenon headlights.
Don’t get us wrong: If you’re drawn to the Dodge Challenger simply because you miss laying patches in your high school parking lot, you won’t be disappointed. We’d avoid the base V6 for this purpose, but either of the two available V8s should do the trick. The R/T’s 5.7-liter version delivers up to 376 horsepower and great value, while the SRT8’s 6.4-liter, 470-hp monstrosity is an even worthier heir to the big-block V8s of yesteryear. Particularly with the pistol-grip six-speed manual shifter in hand, a V8-powered Challenger hits all the right Woodward Avenue notes.
