Ranking The Greatest Dodge Challengers As The Legend Fades Away

Dodge Challenger Widebody

The Challenger is a tuner’s dream. There are just so many modifications drivers can make to this car. Even the factory itself released a particular version. The Challenger Widebody was first listed in 2019. This model has a special widebody kit similar to the Hellcat (via Dodge).

However, the Widebody option can be ordered with lesser Challengers. It’s pretty popular with people looking to have a wide Challenger that looks like a Hellcat but goes a bit slower. Still, the Widebody goes on Scat Pack and V8-powered models, so it’s still fast.

2021 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak

Although Dodge announced that the Challenger would be discontinued, its legacy will live on through specialty models like the Drag Pak. In 2021, Dodge improved the well-known model with better components, more challenging parts, and a faster-shifting automatic transmission (via Dodge Garage).

Under the lightweight hood is a sturdy 5.7-liter Hemi with a supercharger, aluminum block, and forged rods. Interestingly, Dodge also offered a body-in-white without the engine for customers who wanted to install their own drivetrains.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170

How do we properly say goodbye to the modern muscle era? The Hellcat and the Demon were great but the SRT Demon 170 is on another level. What is it? It is a 2023-only model with 1,025 hp (on race gas) and a 0 to 60 mph time of 1.66 seconds (on race tires) (via Auto Week).

The 6.4-liter supercharged Hemi V8 has improvements to deliver such impressive power. On standard gas, the SRT Demon 170 has “just” 900 hp, but on race fuel, it provides a full 1,025 hp. However, it comes with only one seat since it is a race car. Previously, the passenger seat was available as a $1 option, so on the Demon 170, it will be similar. The base price is $140,000 and only 3,300 cars will leave the factory in Ontario.
