2016 Dodge Challenger Review

from the expert editorial team

For our V-8 Muscle Car Challenge, we brought the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, 2016 Ford Mustang GT and 2016 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack to Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona for a week of intensive testing.

What Is the 2016 Dodge Challenger?

The 2016 Dodge Challenger is a five-seat sports coupe that competes with the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Trim levels include the SXT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat.

What's New on the 2016 Dodge Challenger?

The notable additions for 2016 are the new Plum Crazy exterior color and the Blacktop Appearance Package for SXT and R/T trim levels.

How Does the 2016 Dodge Challenger Compare to Other Sports Coupes?

The Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro are both shorter, lower and lighter than the Challenger, which makes them superior when it comes to handling. However both fall short of the Challenger in terms of interior space. Although the Challenger offers a more comfortable ride, its rivals also come as convertibles, which is not an option with the Challenger.

What Features in the 2016 Dodge Challenger Are Most Important?

The Dodge Challenger gives drivers the choice of a 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 or three V-8 engines, including a 375-hp 5.7-liter, 485-hp 6.4-liter and the 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 found on the SRT Hellcat trim. Transmission availability — including a six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic — depends on the trim level. Significant standard features include LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless access, heated side mirrors and automatic dual-zone climate control. As required in all new cars, the Challenger also features front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

Significant available features include forward collision warning, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, a power sunroof, Uconnect multimedia system, leather upholstery, backup camera, heated and ventilated front seats, and a navigation system. On the Challenger SRT, notable features include Pirelli P Zero Nero tires, upgraded Brembo brakes, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and functional heat extractors plus an air inlet port for Hellcat models.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
