2018 Dodge Challenger Trying To Catch Up With Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang

By  | 

The Dodge Challenger is behind the Ford Mustang at the moment and it’s also behind the Chevrolet Camaro. Pretty soon the SRT Hellcat could be outclassed by the Ford Mustang GT500 and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

This means that at the moment the FCA is unable to pull punches. If they want the 2018 Dodge Challenger to be able to catch up with the Mustang and Camaro they do need to come up with something drastic. We are talking about both the standard version and the Hellcat version that comes with 707 horsepower.

Now Dodge Challenger fans have been given some good news by way of the Dodge Challenger GT AWD, which could have what it needs to beat the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro.

The Dodge Challenger GT AWD will live up to its name as it is going to send power to all four of its wheels. It is going to offer up a V6 engine instead of the V8 and this is something that the Ford Mustang nor the Chevrolet Camaro offers.

The Hellcat will be offering more power and it will boast the ADR nameplate. The 6.2 litre V6 engine will offer plenty of power and the Dodge Challenger GT AWD is going to come with a body kit that is wide.

    “It is going to offer up a V6 engine instead of the V8 and this is something that the Ford Mustang nor the Chevrolet Camaro offers.”

    Ho hum. No one that truly respects a muscle car wants to see a V-6, AWD or otherwise. More HP for the ADR will be nice, as long as it’s not sacrificing low end response and day to day driveability. Neither the Challenger or the Charger are in the same class as the Camaro and Mustang and they shouldn’t be trying to “keep up” with them in the first place. The GT500 is essentially a “tuner car,” even if the tuner is very reputable, and the ZL-1 is a true track car that’s quite a pain to live with on the street, not to mention exceedingly hard to find in dealerships. I’ll be looking at a Charger ADR Hellcat to replace my SRT 392 in 2018, and I can assure you that neither the Camaro or the Mustang will even be a consideration.
