Overview

What's New in the 2014 Dodge Challenger?

The Challenger is carried over unchanged for the 2014 model year.

Which Challenger is the Best?

The SXT Plus is the screaming deal of the 2014 Dodge Challenger line, adding tons of bonus content for just $500 more than the base SXT. If you simply have to have a V8, however, we like the R/T's combination of performance and value, especially with the slick 6-speed manual transmission.

How Much Does a 2014 Dodge Challenger Cost?

The 2014 Dodge Challenger comes in three main varieties -- the SXT, the R/T and the SRT-8.

The base SXT ($27,000) includes 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry/ignition, a tilt-telescopic steering column with a leather-wrapped wheel, power front seats, automatic climate control and a 6-speaker audio system with an auxiliary audio jack (but no USB port). For a mere $500 more, the SXT Plus adds such niceties as Nappa leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear parking sensors, Boston Acoustics speakers with enhanced power as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity. A cool Rallye Redline model based on the SXT Plus brings a red center stripe, black chrome-clad wheels, performance tires, steering, brakes and suspension, the latter with an electronically controlled sport mode.

The R/T ($31,500) adds a sport-tuned suspension, a limited-slip differential and fog lamps but otherwise essentially mirrors the SXT's model equipment list (though USB/Bluetooth are standard on all R/Ts). For $2,000 more, the R/T Blacktop package adds matte graphite racing stripes; gloss black 20-in wheels with matching grille surround and fuel door treatments; and the Super Track Pak contents -- a $595 upgrade on other Challenger R/T models -- that bring a higher-performance steering gear and upgraded brake linings, shocks and tires. The pricier R/T Classic tacks on 20-in wheels, xenon headlamps, a functional hood scoop and body stripes. Many of the fancier models' features can be specified on lesser models as options.

At the top of the Challenger hierarchy is the SRT-8 ($45,000), which comes standard with most of the lower trims' luxury bits plus exclusive 20-in forged aluminum wheels, performance-tuned power steering, a 3-mode electronically adjustable suspension, sport front seats, SRT flat-bottom steering wheel and a 6.5-in touchscreen interface with available hard-drive storage for music.

The touchscreen can be added to any Challenger, by the way, and SXT Plus and higher trims offer it with or without a navigation system. There's also a variety of other factory and dealer upgrades for both appearance and performance, as well as an optional premium Harman Kardon audio system with 18 speakers, an incredible number.

Competition

2014 Dodge Challenger vs the competition

Chevrolet Camaro -- The Chevy Camaro has serious style. Outward visibility is tough, but overall it drives much like the Challenger. Its base V-6 has 323 hp, and the upgrade SS model brings 426 hp.

Ford Mustang -- Recently rejuvenated by two new engines, the lightweight, nimble Ford Mustang is the sportiest muscle car these days. And the GT's 5.0-liter V8 is one of the finest you'll come across.

Dodge Charger -- Basically the same car as the Challenger underneath, the Charger adds two more doors and a healthy dollop of space, and is equally bargain-priced. Just as nice for V6 customers is the Charger's offering of Chrysler's 8-speed automatic, which isn't offered on the Challenger.
