2018 Challenger: The Refreshed Classic Ride


So, what can you expect from the new 2018 Challenger? Well, the name itself has been around in the car industry for quite a while. It can be considered as one of the muscle rides that manage to create a platform for itself in the auto world. The major competitors are Camaro or Mustang – so you can be sure about the quality and the performance.

2018 Challenger and the Current Condition

When we are talking about Challenger, we are basically talking about one of the timeless and classic muscle car with impressive handling and ability. The design may be outdated or rather old school but you have to admit that the name remains talked among the auto enthusiasts mostly because of the combination of suspension, engine, and design. Although the ride still manages to deliver impressive performance and qualities, you should remember that such thing as interior cabin or driving performance is still low when compared to the Camaro or Mustang that have experienced several updates and developments.

Price and Release Date

That’s why the company decided that they are going to do something new about the ride and they are planning on the new 2018 Challenger model. Although there hasn’t been any official confirmation about the price or the release date, it is predicted that the new Challenger should be introduced around the middle of 2018 – most likely in July – and sales dates will take place not longer than that month. We should wait for the official announcement about the availability and price.


Rumor has it that the new 2018 Challenger model will be based on the Alfa Romeo’s rear wheel driving system platform but it is most likely that it is not going to happen. It is possible, though, to expect the new model to share the platform (or some of the parts) with the rear wheel driving system from Maserati. If it is true, the new Challenger will be coming with independent suspension in the corners, lighter body and chassis, and also possibly a smaller dimension. These combinations are believed to make the new Challenger not only faster but also comes with better fuel efficient system – and you can expect an improved feature on other elements and performance.

Exterior Design

If everything goes as planned, the new exterior design of the new 2018 Challenger will be completely different from the current design. Some of the signature characteristics will remain but there will be tweaks and differences. Some auto experts and enthusiasts are hoping that the aggressive look front end, the boxy design, and the solid stance will remain – even enhanced in the new model.

Interior Cabin

Because of the smaller dimension, it is likely that the new ride will only accommodate four people. But expect a spacious interior cabin with improved luxury and premium quality. Further details should be expected soon.


It is most likely that smaller engine will be used because of the smaller dimension. It is predicted that the new ride will be coming with inline 4 2.0 liter engine delivering 272 hp of power while the higher trim may come with V6 3.6 liter engine or even the V8 5.8 liter engine, delivering in between 320 hp and 400 hp of power. Sounds like a good plan for 2018 Challenger?
