Test drive the 2018 Dodge Challenger in Salinas CA

As you can see, it's not all about engine specs. The Challenger fits five passengers, though the back seats are small, given that it is still a coupe model. If you're not one who cares too much about passenger space, you will be happy to know that the Challenger comes standard with a six-cylinder engine with more than 300 horsepower. The Camaro, meanwhile, comes available with a V6 that has 335 horsepower, but it will cost you extra. As you work up the trim levels of each car, you will find more powerful engines. The Challenger Demon is powered by an insane 808 horses, whereas the Camaro ZL1 tops out at "just" 650.

If performance and engine power are what you crave, the Challenger will deliver. Come on down to MY Jeep Chrysler Dodge RAM and check it out with your own eyes.
