Edmunds.com says that the 2012 Dodge Challenger“may look like a muscle car and go like a muscle car, but its ability to also be a grand American touring coupe cements its status as the most livable of the reborn pony cars.” In other words, if you want the power of a beast, but still have room to cart the kids to soccer practice or stuff the back end full of IKEA purchases, this car can’t be beat.
This gorgeous Dodge Challenger has a powerful 3.6L V6 VVT engine that busts out 305 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque. That’s probably not the kind of power you’re used to expecting on a car that functions comfortably as a family hauler. Combine that incredibly capable engine with the smooth shifting 5-speed automatic transmission and even with all that power, she’ll still deliver 25mpg out on the open road. But if that 3.6L just isn’t enough power for you, the Challenger is also available with a 5.7-liter V8 that cranks out 376 hp and 410 lb-ft and the SRT8 with a 6.4-liter V8 that produces 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Whew!
- There’s more to this car than just retro-styled muscle too. Take a seat in the comfortable 6-way power driver seat and feast your eyes on the well-appointed interior with chrome trim. The first thing you may notice is that the Dodge Challenger actually has a full sized back seat with 3 real seats for real people that were even designed to be family friendly with the LATCH child seat anchors and 3-point seat belts at all three positions. The air conditioner with automatic temperature control has outlets in the back seat too to make sure everyone is comfortable. The 168 watt AM/FM/CD stereo system has Sirius Satellite capability, an iPod integration port, and Bluetooth connectivity. She’s even got remote proximity keyless entry and a push-button starter so you can leave your keys in your pocket. Upgrades available include bigger wheels and hood scoops, leather trim, navigation system, and a premium stereo.
To help you avoid accidents, the 2012 Dodge Challenger is equiped with 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with Brake Assist, All-speed traction control, Electronic Stability Control, all-season performance BSW tires, and a Tire pressure monitor warning system. If you ever are in an accident the Challenger has Active Head Restraints, Advanced multi-stage front airbags, Supplemental front & rear side-curtain airbags, Supplemental front side airbags, and Supplemental side airbags to protect you.
