2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8.jpg

Dodge Challenger (LX). 2008 to date (prod. n/a). 2-door coupé. 3518 cm³ (V6 OHC), 3604 cm³ (V6 DOHC), 5654, 6059, 6162, 6417 cm³ (V8 OHV). Dodge returns to the pony car segment after an absence of over three decades. LX platform shared with the Chrysler 300 (2005–10), which meant a fairly sophisticated five-link independent rear suspension when rivals such as the Ford Mustang (2005–9) made do with a solid rear axle. Unashamed retro styling, perhaps too reliant on the cues of the Dodge Challenger (1970–4) compared with Chevrolet Camaro (2010–15), though it proved relatively timeless. A heavy vehicle, as with Dodge Charger (2006–10), with the Hemi V8s being more able to shift the two tons. Engine upgrades paralleled those of Charger: Pentastar V6 from 2011, supercharged 6·2 for SRT Hellcat model in 2015.
