Dream car of 2012 would be the Dodge Challenger.

Updated on February 2, 2012

My Dodge Challenger 2011


Dodge Challenger Distinction

From the instant Dodge came back with the Challenger in 2008, Chrysler had taken a different approach

towards the retro muscle cars compared to Ford or Chevrolet. The Challenger is more of a grand touring sports car being somewhat heavier and more comfortable than the Mustang or Camaro.

The Dodge Challenger has come back with a vengeance and turning heads wherever it leads the way. The new Dodge Challenger is a beautiful recreation of the musclecars of yesteryear. It not only performs with available power under the hood but is a very comfortable touring machine. With an independent suspension and latest high tech features we can cruise down the highway in style. It has that distinctive exterior styling that most people really appreciate and many onlookers actually give you the thumbs up when going for a ride. Don’t get me wrong because I love the Ford Mustang also but find that there are too many of them on the road and coming across them a common occurrence therefore making them less unique. The resurrection of the Chevrolet Camaro was exciting especially that I had owned one back in my youth until I tried to cram into one. What a disappointment when you have only headroom for people which measure less than five feet ten inches. The Dodge Challenger has the roomiest of the three and the Challenger is the only pony car capable of seating five passengers instead of four. The Mopar muscle car has a long hood, short deck shape with wide grille and round headlamps. This classic American rear wheel drive sports coupe seems to be the ultimate modern-day boulevard cruiser. The Dodge Challenger will become even more of a collector’s item since they could well decide to let the vehicle fade away at the end of its current run by 2014. If you are looking to relive those muscle car years of the past then the Dodge Challenger would probably be the purest thing available with today’s next generation technology and standards in mind.


The standard-issue Dodge Challenger SE is equipped with a respectable 3.6 liter V-6 Pentastar motor developing three hundred and five horses with an automatic transmission. A Hemi V-8 5.7 liter engine rumbles the R/T model and has 375 horsepower ready to go. The “392” gives you the 6.4 liter Hemi V-8 engine developing an impressive 470 horsepower and not to be overlooked 470 pound of torque, with a choice of either a manual or an automatic transmission.This Beauty is more quiet and comfortable than its competitors, especially in the front and has a huge 16 cubic feet trunk capacity. All Challengers come equipped with standard climate control; power windows, locks and mirrors; a CD player; and cruise control.
