So many options, so little time...

Let our experienced sales staff at McGovern Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Newton help you find the right Challenger model for you.

Performance

The list of potent engines to power your Challenger begins with the 305-hp 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with a rear-wheel drivetrain. A 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 generates 375-hp, and the 6.4-liter Hemi® V8 makes 485-hp. To top it all off, the 6.2-liter HEMI® V8 has a supercharged engine which churns out 717-hp, or you can go all out with the 797-hp supercharged High-Output version. All-wheel drive is available on each trim.

Features

The Challenger is a two-door muscle car with a roomy cabin that can seat up to five passengers. With an unusually large trunk for its class, the Challenger offers 16.2 cubic feet of cargo volume and includes 60/40 split-folding rear seats providing even more room for luggage if needed. A 7.0-inch touch-screen display, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, a six-speaker sound system and two USB ports come standard. Available features consist of Sport, Performance, Wild Wheel, and SRT steering wheels, performance seats, and a sunroof. Also, an 8.4-inch touch-screen, SiriusXM® satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and an 18-speaker Harman Kardon® premium sound system, are optional.
