2016 Dodge Challenger - Miami, FL
If you're looking to buy an American performance car, there's no shortage of options in 2016. The big three--Dodge, Chevrolet, and Ford--all have plenty of options for enthusiasts to ensure everyone gets exactly what they want.
The problem with this abundance of performance cars is that they've all strayed from their roots as big, loud, and powerful cars. The only car that hasn't lost those characteristics is the 2016 Dodge Challenger; it not only has the classic muscle car design inspired by the 1970s model, but also the power to back it up.
If you're looking for a car that will turn heads on the street and the drag strip, a Dodge Challenger in Miami is the absolute best choice for muscle car enthusiasts.
The Only Real Muscle Car on the Market
A lot of manufacturers try to pretend that they've got the "only" car on the market that has a specific feature or special performance. That's just marketing. But when we say that the Dodge Challenger is the only real muscle car on the market, we mean it.
So what makes a muscle car a muscle car at the end of the day?
The traditional muscle car was a two-door coupe with a big engine, designed to go really fast in a straight line, which separated it from European sports cars that were designed to be nimble around a race track.
Instead, muscle cars proved their greatness on the drag strip, with the best car achieving the best time in a straight-line quarter mile race. This is what the Dodge Challenger is all about, and what Ford and Chevrolet have left behind.
If you take a look at the 2016 Dodge Challenger next to the 2016 Chevy Camaro and 2016 Ford Mustang, there's no doubt which is the muscle car and which is not. Over the years, the Mustang and Camaro have strayed away from these roots and begun to target buyers in the high performance market that might otherwise buy a foreign car.
Ford and Chevy are essentially trying to change the tried and true muscle car to sell more cars. Of course, that's what every manufacturer wants to do; however, it shouldn't alienate the muscle car's classic image and appeal.
This is the complete opposite of what the 2016 Dodge Challenger is trying to accomplish. As a brand, Dodge is evolving into a pure American performance brand. And that is starting with the new Challenger. It's not made to be the fastest car around every track in the world, and it certainly doesn't claim to be the best handling car, either. It's simply trying to be the best muscle car money can buy.
Here's how we sum up the new Dodge Challenger in Miami: Raw power. Classic looks. Modern feel.
Ten Trim Levels to Choose From
The biggest way Dodge separates itself from its Ford and Chevy rivals is the amount of options it offers buyers of the 2016 Challenger. From the standard model with a low $26,995 starting price, all the way up to an enthusiasts dream car, the SRT Hellcat--which starts at just over $64,000.
- SXT Plus
- R/T Plus
- R/T Shaker
- R/T Plus Shaker
- 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker
- R/T Scat Pack
- SRT 392
- SRT Hellcat
If you're looking for the most affordable Dodge Challenger in the Miami area, you can't go wrong with the SXT model. It might be the standard trim level with a V6 engine, but it packs a lot of value for a muscle car.
Upgrading to the SXT Plus model raises the price of the Challenger by about $3000, but still allows you to stay under $30,000. This trim level comes with large 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, 4-wheel antilock brakes, heated Nappa leather seats, heated steering wheel, ventilated seats, and optional HID headlights. More than worth the extra cost for the exterior enhancements and interior comfort!
If you can go without the comfort features, however, the R/T trim level is only a $32,000. That might not sound like a bargain to a lot of you, but this is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 model. Compared to the new 2016 Camaro SS and 2016 Mustang GT, the 2016 Challenger R/T is the most affordable entry-level performance car with a V8 engine.
From here, things get really interesting with the R/T Shaker trim level. It includes a custom Shaker hood that uses an intake to capture cold air to keep the HEMI V8 producing the most power. As a throwback to classic muscle cars, the Shaker will shake while idling, ready to unleash the full power of your 2016 Challenger.
The serious muscle car enthusiast with a $40,000 budget will want to check out the R/T Scat Pack. This beast upgrades from the 5.7-liter HEMI to a 6.4-liter HEMI, good for 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft. of torque. Its aggressive appearance and sound is one of the most intimidating you'll find in the performance car segment. An upgrade for this trim is available that adds the Shaker hood, if you didn't think the Scat Pack was aggressive enough as is.
By now, you might be thinking that it'd be hard to go any further with a new Dodge Challenger in Miami, but we still haven't unveiled their top two trim levels: the SRT 392 and the SRT Hellcat.
The R/T Scat Pack offers a lot of value for the power, but not a lot of interior options that make modern performance cars more comfortable than ever before. That changes with the SRT 392 trim, though. You'll find the standard heated and ventilated leather seats and a premium 18-speaker sound system make a huge difference in everyday driving. On top of that, Dodge upgrades the brakes from four pistons to six pistons and even includes an adaptive suspension.
At the very top of the Challenger food chain is the SRT Hellcat. This monster of a car is not for new drivers or those that just want to enjoy the looks and power of muscle car; it's for true-blood enthusiasts that want the absolute best of the best. It features a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that's capable of producing 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft. of torque, making it the fastest and most powerful muscle car ever created.
Dodge has done a fantastic job allowing American performance car enthusiasts the ability to choose from the widest variety of models. They realize that cars are not one size fits all and by offering more options, each buyer sees an even better value from their new Challenger.
