Dodge Challenger 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Dodge Challenger 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Challenger zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Challenger 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Dodge Challenger engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The 2018 Dodge Challenger is no mean feat. It currently comes with either of the two most powerful engines available today. Despite it not being as well-rounded as some of its competitors, it offers lots of cargo space and a second row, two rare features in its class.

The Challenger comes in several versions. The GT and SXT are equipped with an eight-speed transmission and have a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that churns about 305 hp. T/A and R/T models pack a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces up to 375 hp. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack, 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker, SRT 392 and the T/A 392 feature a 6.4-litre, 485 hp, V8. The naturally ambitious V8s offer enough power to get the regular car enthusiast excited. They are available with either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Challenger still comes with the same mature interior and impressive classic muscle car look. It hits the 60mph mark in 4.7 seconds and covers quarter of a mile in 13.1 secs at 108.3 mph. The demerits include a rather too noisy exhaust and a lack of manners in its handling during a soft ride.

The user-adjustable electric steering is available in all trim levels except one, the Challenger SRT Hellcat, which features the traditional hydraulic power steering. The electric system is direct and accurate. The R/Ts come with an improved and optional Performance Handling Package which adds 4-piston Brembo brakes and tightened suspensions. Interior soft-touch materials can be upgraded with a grippy synthetic suede or Nappa leather upholstery. The SRT is the noisiest of its siblings but includes a sound-deadening removal option.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger joins its competitors in providing some of the strongest engines on the road. It’s a powerful sports car that offers reliable performance. It also provides more practicality due to its more massive trunk and interior space. However, it still falls behind some of its rivals and comes at a hefty price.
