The Dodge Charger delivers the performance you would expect from any muscle car – superior. The Dodge is charged by the eight-speed automatic transmission which provides a smooth ride. The Chargers base engine is a 292-horsepower Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 which produces 260lb-ft of torque, all while still providing great fuel economy.

The Dodge Challenger can handle any windy road with its superb handling. While the Dodge Charger is a powerful machine, the Dodge Challenger packs more heat with a 305-horsepower engine and 368lb-ft of torque.

The Charger has changed its exterior over the years, and this time around, it’s slimming down in size. The bulkiness that was once found in the front and rear have been trimmed down, giving the illusion that it is more “mid-size” than the full-size sedan it once was.

The Challenger is known for its large, block size. Which could explain why the Challenger took its inspiration this year from the classic 1970’s Challengers. Although the exterior may have an old-school vibe, the interior is decked our with a modern dashboard with aluminum accents and a center console with a raised edge on the passenger side.

They only way to settle this match is to take both of them for a test drive. Stop by our Pittsburgh Dodge dealership located on Route 30 North Huntingdon, Pa. One of our non-commissioned sales staff will be more than happy to take you out on a test drive you’ve only dreamed about.
