Dodge Muscle Car Lineup
The Power of Dodge
It’s no secret that for over 100 years, performance has been the name of the game when it comes to a Dodge car. As it is every year, the Dodge muscle car lineup is phenomenal and is actively growing. While they are not muscle cars, the reintroduction of the Dodge Durango SRT® Hellcat and the introduction of the new electrified Dodge Hornet in 2022 signaled a new wave of ingenuity and speed that we can expect to see expand to the Dodge muscle car lineup in the very near future. While most of Dodge’s future projects are still in the works and are just breaking out of the concept phase, we can still revisit two of America’s favorite and most famous Dodge muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger and the Dodge Charger. Once you’ve finished reading about the power of Dodge, swing by Mike Castucci Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram to test drive one for yourself.
Peak of American Muscle
The Dodge Challenger is currently the only two-door Dodge muscle car in the lineup, making it a high priority for many drivers looking for a more subtle, but powerful car. The Dodge Challenger is also the first muscle coupe ever with an all-terrain AWD system, and with the right powertrain configuration, the fastest GT production car. The Dodge Challenger can be found with one of five engines, the standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6, the 5.7L HEMI® V8, the 392 HEMI® V8, the supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8, and the Supercharged High-Output 6.2L HEMI® V8. When equipped in the Dodge Challenger Jailbreak, the High-Output engine is capable of an absolutely absurd 707 lb.-ft. of torque and 807 horsepower.
The Dodge Charger has arguably been the face of the Dodge muscle car lineup since 1968. Having once been the go-to car for professional race car drivers and being the fastest car to ever be sold to the general public in 1969, the Dodge Charger has a serious reputation to maintain. To do justice to its roots, the Dodge Charger comes with four of the same engine options that can be found on the Dodge Challenger, the 3.6L Pentastar® V6, the 5.7L HEMI® V8, the 392 HEMI® V8, and the Supercharged High-Output SRT® 6.2L HEMI® V8 which pumps out an incredible 707 lb.-ft. of torque and 797 horsepower.
The Next Generation
What’s the future looking like? We’re so glad you asked. Unfortunately, 2023 will mark the end of the Dodge muscle car lineup as we know it. The Dodge Challenger will likely be discontinued in coming years. It will be sad to see it go, but with loss comes change. While the future of the Dodge Charger is still up in the air, it has been rumored that the next generation of Dodge Chargers will not only feature all-electric engines, but will also reintroduce the most powerful Dodge muscle car of all time, the Dodge Charger Daytona. While we don’t know if this new model will be able to reach speeds over 200 MPH like its ancestors, we sure are excited to see it try.
