2011 Dodge Challenger - Review

June 11th, 2011

The Basics

Over the few years in which Chrysler has struggled, been bailed out, and quickly worked to rehab its product line, one model that's managed to bolster morale and the automaker's image all the way through is the Dodge Challenger.

Key Takeaway

The 2011 Dodge Challenger has retro style and blistering muscle-car performance in spades, but it's a surprisingly well-equipped, comfortable touring coupe to boot.

The 2011 Challenger coupe evokes the designs of muscle cars of the late 1960s and early '70s, appealing to the Baby Boomer fans of the original coupes as well as a new generation, by offering modern tech and comfort features within a thoroughly retro exterior that hearkens back to the 1970 Challenger. Depending on your perspective, it can appear as cartoonish, crisp and modern, or a blast from the past.

At the top of the Challenger range, the high-performance SRT8 adds some modernity and a new exotic look in the way of faux-carbon-fiber trim and xenon headlamps, but its deeper front air dams and functional brake ducts give the design even more street cred. What's not available, appearance-wise, as a factory option inside or out is bound to be available as a dealer-installed Mopar accessory. Various striping packages, wheels, a Ram air hood, and suspension kits serve to give you whatever customized muscle-car look you want.
