2018 Dodge Challenger SXT Delivers Sporty Performance Without Busting the Budget
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SXT is designed to deliver a powerful performance thanks to its intense powertrain — a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine and TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission, which earns a horsepower rating of 305 and 268 lb-ft of torque. With such impressive sports-car aptitude, the 2018 Challenger SXT should warrant a hefty price tag, but according to U.S. News & World Report, it’s worthy of a spot on its list of 14 Cheapest Sports Cars of 2018.
“The 2018 Dodge Challenger is what little sport coupes wish they could be. The Challenger offers a robust V6, an easy-to-use infotainment system, and a surprisingly large backseat and trunk,” notes U.S. News & World Report writer Brian McHugh.
In addition to its sporty performance, the Challenger SXT also features an unmistakable exterior styling and comfortable interior complete with a leather steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and premium cloth sport seats. Infotainment technology to keep you connected over every mile is funneled through the Uconnect® 4 system, which features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration and integrated Voice Command with Bluetooth®. A responsive and easy-to-use 7-inch touch screen display makes manipulating your selections simple.
“The rear-wheel-drive Challenger is a big car, so it’s not as agile as some of its rivals, though it has strong brakes and offers tight handling. While there may be some body roll when taking tight turns, the Challenger has an excellent ride quality,” adds McHugh.
Safety features standard on the 2018 Challenger SXT include advanced multistage front air bags, a ParkView® rear back up camera, Electronic Stability Control, Hill Start Assist, All Speed Traction Control, Sentry Key® Theft Deterrent System, and Electronic Roll Mitigation.
