What's New in the 2019 Dodge Challenger?

Dodge streamlined the trim level lineup to just eight models. The SRT Hellcat Redeye steps in to replace the SRT Demon, taking its spot at the top of the Challenger SRT performance models. The SRT Hellcat's 6.2-liter V8's output increased to 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque, and also now features an After-Run Chiller. All Hellcat versions also get a dual snorkel hood. Line Lock and Launch Assist are now standard on all SRT Hellcat and R/T Scat Pack grades. The R/T Scat Pack gets SRT Drive Modes and Performance Pages standard. The R/T and R/T Scat Pack get the Rear Seat Delet Group as an option. All Challenger standard interiors are cloth. Numerous other performance and cosmetic upgrades round out the changes. See the 2019 Dodge Challenger models for sale near you

How Much Does a 2019 Dodge Challenger Cost?

Dodge claims eight trim levels for the Challenger, but two of those (SXT AWD and GT AWD) are basically just the SXT and GT with, you guessed it, AWD. Remaining are the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye.

Pricing for the 2019 Dodge Challenger has quite a spread from the V6-equipped SXT to the pavement chomping SRT Hellcat Redeye. Adding an automatic transmission to the R/T Scat Pack or SRT Hellcat adds $1,595 to the bottom line, but eliminates the $1,000 Gas Guzzler Tax on the manual R/T Scat Pack. Prices for all grades include the $1,495 factory destination charge. Listed prices for the SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye include the $1,700 GGT. There are several sub grades, which are basically performance packages like R/T with T/A Package, R/T with Shaker Package, R/T Scat Pack Widebody Package and so forth. We have included total pricing for many of those sub trims.

The base SXT ($29,340) includes 18-in alloy wheels, sport suspension, Keyless Enter 'n Go, auto on/off headlamps, LED taillights, power heated outboard mirrors, a leather-wrapped wheel, a power driver seat, a backup camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, Dodge Performance Pages, a 6-way power driver's seat, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, hill-start assist, Uconnect 4 with a 7-in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 6-speaker audio system.

SXT AWD ($32,390) is basically the SXT with AWD and 19-in alloy wheels.

The GT ($31,890) builds on the SXT with remote start, sport-tuned steering, performance suspension, a performance hood with a functioning scoop, 20-in alloy wheels and an upgraded leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters.

Building on the GT, GT AWD ($34,940) adds AWD, but loses the GT's 20-in wheels for 19-in ones.

The R/T ($35,790) adds to the GT with a V8 engine, performance exhaust and metal pedals. Optional is a Performance Handling package (upgraded brakes and suspension only). The T/A Package ($39,190) adds a cold-air intake, black styling elements and other mostly cosmetic enhancements. The R/T Shaker Package ($38,290) adds a large cold air induction scoop extending through the hood and some styling enhancements.

The R/T Scat Pack ($40,490) adds the HEMI 392 V8, performance brakes, black brake calipers, SRT configurable drive modes, launch assist, launch control, line lock, high-performance suspension, an aluminum hood with dual heat extractors, 20-in black alloy wheels, an 180-mph speedometer, SRT Performance Pages, and the Uconnect 4C interface with an 8.4-in touchscreen, satellite radio, Bluetooth streaming and two USB ports.

Besides its supercharged V8 engine, the SRT Hellcat ($61,845) adds larger Brembo brakes with red calipers, After-Run Chiller, an intercooler, a high-performance exhaust, a further upgraded competition suspension, adaptive suspension dampers, aluminum hood with dual scoops, a 200-mph speedometer, a SRT flat-bottom heated steering wheel, special hydraulic sport steering, xenon headlights and special design elements.

SRT Hellcat Redeye ($73,190) receives a higher-output version of the SRT Hellcat's V8 plus the SRT Power Chiller and a 220-mph speedometer.

A Widebody Package is available for the RT/Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye. A power sunroof is optional for all trims. Offered on all grades is the Driver Convenience Group with power folding mirrors, HID headlamps and various grade-specific goodies. All but the SXT versions qualify for an upgraded Harman Kardon audio system. Available on all grades is the Technology Group with rain-sensing wipers and auto high beams, as well as forward-collision warning and adaptive cruise control on automatic transmission-equipped models only. There are numerous other performance and appearance option packages.

2019 Dodge Challenger vs the competition

2019 Chevrolet Camaro -- This is the sharpest American muscle coupe to drive, boasting handling and performance credentials that rival the best sports cars. Practical drawbacks limit its viability as a daily driver.

2019 Ford Mustang -- The Mustang splits the difference between the Camaro and the Challenger. It's more agile than the Challenger, but more practical than the Camaro. It's also available as a convertible.

2019 Dodge Charger -- Basically the same car as the Challenger underneath, the Charger adds two more doors and a healthy dollop of space. It's also equally bargain-priced.

Used Cadillac CTS-V -- If you want the Challenger's brute power but prefer a nicer cabin or more equipment, consider a Cadillac CTS-V. Prices are high, however, so you may have to check out a used model.
