The 2-door, 5-passenger Dodge Challenger SXT offers you a classic muscle-car with modern safety and technology. For 2016, the Challenger received a 5-star crash-test rating from NHTSA . Its long-hood/short-trunk harkens back to the timelessly appealing Challengers of the early 1970s. Depending on the year, under-hood choices range from a 3.6-liter 305-horsepower V6 to Dodge’s legendary Hemi V8. Fourteen trim levels are available, including the base SXT, the all-wheel-drive Challenger GT, the retro-flavored R/T, T/A and R/T Scat Pack.
Inside, the Dodge Challenger SXT is comfortable and functional. The retro-style gauges look fantastic, and there’s a large driver-information screen located between the tach and speedometer. There’s plenty of room in front, and the rear seat can accommodate three people. The trunk is large and useful, despite a pretty high spoiler.
The base 2017 Dodge Challenger SXT has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) right around $28,000, including $995 for destination. Its a lot of car for the money. Be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying. When it comes to resale values expect the older Challengers to hold their own.
