What to Expect From the 2022 Dodge Challenger

December 12th, 2021 by

American muscle isn’t a thing of the past and the 2022 Dodge challenger proves it with its old school charm. Joining the Brotherhood of Muscle is easy with the entry-level Dodge Challenger SXT trim. Strangely enough, the entry-level V6 Dodge Challenger is the only two-door muscle car with all-wheel drive. As consumers move up in trims, the muscle power only increases, with the R/T trim offering the fury of an iconic HEMI V8 under the hood. Compared to the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang, the Challenger is less clunky and it offers a smoother ride with ample space for passenger accommodations.

For the 2022 model year Dodge didn’t make any huge changes to the Challenger lineup. In fact, the only difference between the 2021 and 2021 Dodge Charger lineup is the availability of a deluxe security alarm for the R/T Scat Pack trim. Dodge also added its new deluxe security alarm feature to its Convenience Group Package. Automotive experts recommend the R/T Scat Pack model because of its powerful 485 horsepower HEMI V8 engine paired with the automatic eight-speed transmission. Adaptive dampers are also recommended as they improve overall ride quality. 

Dodge offers the Plus Package that adds plenty to the interior, including ambient lighting, nicer materials on the dashboard and doors, and faux-suede seat inserts. The Plus Package is paired with the Driver Convenience Group as well, adding rear-cross-traffic alerts, high-intensity-discharge headlights, and blind-spot monitoring. With a classic muscle car interior, the Dodge Challenger hones in on its 1970s roots and pairs that with comfortable and modern accommodations. Other pony cars are no match for the Dodge Challenger as it is the only one in its segment with a far roomier cabin, along with back seats that actually accommodate adults without compromising comfort. Dodge also offers an extra seven cubic feet when compared with the Camaro, helping the Challenger lug two more luggage bags than the competition. The 2022Dodge Challenger also offers buyers a big center console that doubles as a useful spot for a smartphone. 

A muscle car in the truest sense, the 2022 Dodge Challenger is excellent on the streets and even better on the drag strip. Ever since the lineup was redesigned back in 2015, all Dodge Challenger vehicles offer a comfortable and refined ride. When it comes to power and performance, consumers can count on the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and its 375 horsepower, while those looking to maximize their Challenger can opt for a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that generates 485 horsepower. Every Dodge Challenger vehicle also comes with the easy-to-use Uconnect infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto capabilities. Dodge also offers two available Alpine audio systems and an 18-speaker Harman/Kardon setup.
