2022 Dodge Challenger v 2022 Chevy Camaro

January 6th, 2022 by

Buyers turn to the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro and 2022 Dodge Challenger for their powerful engines and nostalgic muscle car aesthetics. That said, how do these two modern-day muscle cars fare against each other? Let’s take a closer look.

2022 Chevy Camaro

Chevy offers buyers a low entry-level price, a slew of engines, along with coupe and convertible body styles. However, when it comes to cargo and rear seat space, the Camaro doesn’t deliver. Additionally, the Camaro has limited driver aids and poor rear visibility. While quick and fun to drive at any trim level, the 2022 Camaro is hampered by its cramped style (either convertible or coupe) and its less-than-ideal trunk space.

Its classic look, when paired with one of the many powerful engine options available, along with a large interior, optional all-wheel drive and impressive trunk space, make the 2022 Dodge Challenger the sports car to beat. Big, brutish, and unapologetic, the 2022 Dodge Challenger is a modern take on a classic muscle car that’s aided by its lineup of very powerful engines. Considerably larger than the competition, the Dodge Challenger not only has room for five passengers, it can easily accommodate them and all their cargo as well.

Engine options for the 2022 Camaro range from an entry-level 275 horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder up to a 650 horsepower supercharged V8 engine, with other V6 options available in between. Every Camaro comes standard with a sport suspension, while transmissions range from a six-speed manual to an eight-speed automatic, and an optional 10-speed automatic in the top-tier ZL trim.

Notoriously powerful in the American muscle scene, the 2022 Dodge Challenger starts out with a powerful V6 engine boasting 303 horsepower on the SXT and GT trims. Buyers can also choose from several HEMI engines available, including an impressive 807 horsepower 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 under the hood of the Challenger SRT Super Stock.

As we mentioned prior, the 2022 Camaro is available in convertible or coupe, but it’s ideally designed for two as opposed to five. All Camaro models come standard with automatic climate control, an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, a limited-slip differential, and various driving modes. Additional standard features include a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto capability, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, USB ports and more.

On its exterior, the 2022 Dodge Challenger means business, sporting a look that strongly resembles its 1970s form. Inside the Challenger buyers can find modern conveniences including dual-zone climate control, a 7-inch infotainment display complete with Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, two USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and more. The Challenger earned a 5-star NHTSA safety rating.

Which One’s Right for You?

While both the 2022 Camaro and 2022 Challenger offer powerful engine options, 5-star NHTSA safety ratings, and sporty aesthetics, the Challenger reigns supreme thanks to its practicality. There’s nothing better than a sports car that has all the makings of a muscle car without sacrificing space and comfort – and the 2022 Dodge Challenger is exactly that. Additionally, the Dodge Challenger is the only muscle car that offers buyers optional all-wheel drive, a rarity in the modern automotive market.
