What will the 2018 Dodge Challenger Look Like?
The 2018 Dodge Challenger is expected to receive a full redesign
for the 2018 model year. Reports suggest it will be smaller and more in line
size wise with its closest “pony car” competitors, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro
and the 2018 Ford Mustang. Expect a similar retro-infused look that’s perhaps
closer in style and spirit to the original iteration from 1970.
Expect the next-generation 2018 Dodge Challenger’s wheelbase (the
distance between the front and rear axles) to be narrowed by two or three
inches from the current 116-inch spec. This should help enliven the car’s
handling but will probably come at the expense of losing significant rear-seat
legroom; having a particularly useful back seat is one of the current 2018 Dodge Challenger’s few advantages over its rivals. Trunk space should also
suffer with a smaller 2018 Dodge Challenger.
The “Pentastar” 3.6-liter engine and 5.7 Hemi V-8 are likely to
continue, though either or both will probably be tweaked to generate additional
horsepower and/or fuel economy. A six-speed manual transmission should continue
to be offered, but we expect the available automatic to feature additional
gears, with the eight-speed version currently found in the 2018 Dodge Charger
sedan (with which the 2018 Challenger shares powertrains) a distinct
Reports suggest the coming SRT-tuned version may carry another
hallowed name from muscle car history, Barracuda (originally a Plymouth), and
feature a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine. Expect to see an output here of
around 500 horsepower to help the car keep up with the likes of the Chevy
Camaro ZL1 and the Mustang’s Shelby GT 500. This version could see an earlier
release than the rest of the 2018 Challenger lineup, perhaps going on sale in
the spring of calendar year 2018. This version could be short-lived or
restricted to limited annual production, however, with higher corporate average
fuel economy requirements being phased in over the ensuing years.
Otherwise, we’d expect the next-generation 2018 Dodge Challenger
would feature an upgraded interior that uses higher-quality materials than the
current rendition to give it a richer look and feel. It may combine retro-look
gauges with configurable high-tech LCD displays that help measure cornering
g-forces, 0-60 mph acceleration times and other data. We’ll probably see more
in the way of convenience and connectivity features offered as well, along with
some of the latest safety systems.
