Several years ago, Dodge released the Hellcat edition of its Challenger with a 707-horsepower V8. Dodge pushed the limits again by adding the Demon, whose supercharged 6.2L V8 develops 840 horsepower. This engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and guarantees dragster-worthy performance. Even the basic version of the Challenger with its 305-horsepower V6 is very powerful. But what did you expect? This is a muscle car, after all.

First Drives2017 Dodge Challenger GT: More At-traction!
PORTLAND, Maine – I reckon some may be tired of reading it in my stories, but I’ve been a diehard fan of AWD for decades. I’ve always advocated and recommended its purchase as an element of safety, exactly like stability control. Unlike the latter, AWD was never made mandatory on …
Blog2017 Dodge Challenger GT: Mandatory AWD?
