4 Reasons to Love the 2016 Dodge Challenger
Four Powerful Engines
You have your choice of four different engines in the 2016 Dodge Challenger. Start with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that offers 305 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. From there, you can move up to either a 5.7L HEMI V8 that brings 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque or a 6.4L HEMI V8 engine with 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Finally, get your heart pounding with a top-of-the-line Supercharged 6.2L HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 that serves up an unheard of 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
Classic and Stylish Body
The 2016 Challenger pays homage to the classic exterior lines of the muscle car era while still incorporating some of the modern and sleeker looks of today. The LED headlights and projector fog lamps stand out in inclement weather and light up the night, while the LED split taillights leave a lasting impression. Choose one of the available stripe packages to really make your Challenger stand out. Then add fun and functional engine-mounted air intakes to the hood. Finally, enjoy a range of body colors to choose from, including some from back in the day.
Advanced Technology Features
Even though the Challenger takes inspiration from the classic styles, it still incorporates some of the latest technologies from today. One available feature is rain-sensing wipers, which automatically come on if they sense moisture on the windshield. The Challenger also comes with adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts your cruising speed to help you keep a set distance between your car and the vehicle ahead of you.
You can also customize the 7-inch digital display to show exactly what you want to see, including reaction time, zero to 60 timer, lap timer, countdown timer, braking distance, average fuel economy, tire pressure, and more. Furthermore, you can control some of your favorite mobile apps directly from the center touch screen.
Excellent Fuel Economy
Even though the Challenger comes with plenty of power, it also uses some of the latest technology to increase fuel efficiency. The 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine offers up to 30 mpg on the highway. It also has an 18.5-gallon fuel tank that lets you go more than 550 miles on a single tank. That makes road trips even more enjoyable. Additionally, the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine delivers up to 25 mpg on the highway. All Challengers also come with variable valve timing technology to improve combustion and increase fuel efficiency.
For the ultimate combination of style and performance, get behind the wheel of a Challenger and see for yourself why there are so many reasons to love it.
