2018 Dodge Challenger Trim Levels


If raw power is what you’re looking for in a car, the 2018 Dodge Challenger is undoubtedly a standout choice. At Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we’re excited to have this vehicle on our lot for drivers in Chicago and Skokie. There are numerous trim levels available—something to keep in mind with the 2018 Challenger. In fact, there are 16 in all. To simplify things, we’ll discuss the five “umbrella trims” for drivers in Park Ridge and Forest Park, as they generally are similarly equipped.

Dodge Challenger SXT

This is the base edition of the Challenger, and comes with a powerful 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine. The infotainment system, Uconnect® 4, comes with a 7-inch touchscreen and offers Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ support. With this technology, it’s easy to link a compatible smartphone to the touchscreen and play songs, read text messages, and navigate to a destination using select apps. SiriusXM® Satellite Radio with a 1-year subscription is standard on the SXT Plus edition, connecting you to the best talk shows, music, and live sporting events. A heated steering wheel and heated front seats are an available option, providing extra comfort even when the cold outside is too much to handle. Dual-zone automatic temperature control is standard on the SXT Plus, offering customized temperature settings to those in the front.

Dodge Challenger GT

The same 8-speed automatic transmission 305-horsepower V6 engine is offered on the GT trim. However, one major difference with this trim: It’s the only one that offers all-wheel drive capability, which can come in handy on days when the roads are slick. Inside the cabin, Nappa leather upholstery is standard, providing a more elegant interior appearance. The seats come with standard heat and ventilation settings, putting you in control, regardless of what’s going on outside the cabin. The 6-speaker Alpine audio system is surprisingly powerful, while an 8.4-inch touchscreen is an available option.

Dodge Challenger R/T

Most R/T trims come with a powerful 375-horsepower HEMI® V8 engine. These are linked to a 6-speed manual transmission for premium shifting and control. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack features a 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine, which produces 485-horsepower. The R/T trims come with a sport suspension, with the performance handling group package including Brembo® 4-piston brakes, high-performance suspension, and black brake calipers. There are other cool features on the R/T trims, as well, such as the R/T Scat Pack appearance group, with bumble bee rear stripe, HID headlamps, black fuel door, logo embroidered seats, and a performance steering wheel. The R/T comes with 20-inch premium painted aluminum wheels, while the R/T Plus comes with 20-inch granite crystal painted aluminum wheels.

Dodge Challenger T/A

Most T/A trims come with the 375-horsepower HEMI® V8, though the T/A 392 is equipped with a 485-horsepower V8 engine. The 6-speed manual transmission is standard, with an available 8-speed automatic. Key features on this trim include the T/A Air-Grabber Hood with Mopar® cold air intake, along with illuminated air-catcher headlamps. The T/A Plus features leather-trimmed seats with the T/A logo, and many of the other differences with the T/A involve exterior and interior styling.

Dodge Challenger SRT

The Challenger SRT offers a set of incredibly powerful vehicles. The SRT 392 is the slowest car in this bunch, but still offers an amazing 485-horsepower V8. The SRT Hellcat comes with an earth-shattering 707-horsepower HEMI® V8, while the SRT Demon produces 840-horsepower. The SRT Demon has an optional 18-speaker Harmon Kardon® audio system, along with optional performance seats. The SRT trims come with Brembo® brakes and high-performance suspension, along with convenient safety features, like Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. But, for the most part, the SRT trim is all about performance.
