2018 Dodge Challenger Specs
The new platform that the 2018 Dodge Challenger is going to receive us developed by Alfa Romeo engineers, according to some rumors. So, you should expect it to have an excellent handling, and it shouldn’t be inferior to the new Camaro.
Despite there is no prominent information about the engine range, it is expected that the entry-level car engine should change to a turbocharged I4 or a V-6, instead of the Pentastar V-6. However, the fact that the new platform of the Challenger is from Alfa Romeo, this may lead us to think that the engine should be a V-6 of 2.9-liter. If this is the case, Dodge fans are going to be disappointed. After all, they are used to high-power V-8 engines.
In what concerns to the transmission, the 2018 Dodge Challenger should get a new 8-speed automatic.
2018 Dodge Challenger Interior
The 2018 Dodge Challenger will be 200 pounds lighter and they needed to remove that weight from somewhere. One of the most strange things that you can expect is that only the driver’s seat doesn’t come out. There are no back seats, as well as there’s no passenger seat. The steering wheel will also change and you’ll get 2 fewer speakers.
Despite all these changes, one thing is for sure: the Challenger was also known for having an ergonomic and fairly comfortable interior, and it should remain the same.
