Practical, Comfortable, and Stylish

Can you have head-turning style and practical comfort in one sports car? With the 2016 Dodge Challenger, you have it all. The coupe model is spacious enough to fit three adults in the back seat comfortably, has plenty of cargo space, and comes with an impressive list of entertainment and safety features. All this wrapped in a variety of trim levels possibilities that make this car a modern classic. This model launched with five trim levels: SXT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2016 Dodge Challenger may not be as fast as other cars in the same category, but for buyers looking for a sports vehicle that is also comfortable and practical, speed is not a top priority. Performance and fuel economy, on the contrary, are crucial in purchase decisions. This model comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 305 horsepower and eight-speed automatic transmission. As for fuel efficiency, it’s estimated at 13-19 mpg in the city and 21-30 mpg in the highway.

Top Safety Features

For safe and reliable driving, the 2016 Dodge Challenger comes standard with five airbags (driver, passenger, front head and side, and rear head), traction control, electronic stability control, and brake assist. If you want to take it up a notch, look for the Driver Convenience package that adds high-tech features like rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and rear parking sensors. It’s available on all trims except the Hellcat.

Technology Highlights

The sports car driving experience goes beyond taking on the road. When it comes to technology features and entertainment, the 2016 Dodge Challenger does not disappoint. All models come standard with a responsive 5-inch touchscreen display, six speakers, USB connection, and memory card slot. Not only do these features come in handy when you need to keep the kids busy while stuck in traffic, but they make navigation effortless.

Interior Design Favorites

All models come standard with power-adjustable driver’s seat, cloth seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a stylish-looking cabin complete with metallic accents that has sports cars fans excited. But what truly sets the 2016 Dodge Challenger apart is the rear seat space, unparalleled in other vehicles of its class. The trunk is surprisingly large for a sports car, with 16.2 cubic feet capacity.

If you were considering investing in a sports car, but weren’t ready to take the leap into buying a brand new vehicle, the 2016 Dodge Challenger is a good investment for a used car. Besides, the highly praised safety features and interior design also make of it a great family car. It’s the best of both worlds in one vehicle.
