2019 Dodge Challenger vs 2019 Dodge Charger

Serving Austin, TX

Dodge produces two of the most loved American muscle cars out there today. In 2019, both the Challenger and the Charger have a lot to offer consumers. While the Challenger is an excellent choice for those in the market for a two-door coupe, the Charger is perfect for people needing a four-door sedan. Although they come with many of the same features and engine options, there are other differences between these two besides the number of doors. Read on to discover more about these vehicles and which one is better suited to your individual needs.


Both of these vehicles have a 3.6-liter V6 base engine. An eight-speed automatic transmission is also standard, although the Challenger is also available with a six-speed transmission. On either vehicle, drivers can choose to upgrade to a 5.7-liter V8 on specific models. In the Charger this produces 370-horsepower, while in the Challenger it produces 375-horsepower. There is also the option of a 6.4-liter V8 in either car that will provide 480-horsepower.

Those who go with the standard SRT Hellcat version of either car will find a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 underneath the hood. For the Charger, this generates 707-horsepower, while in the Challenger it makes 717-horsepower. If you crave more power still, consider the new Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which will give you an astounding 797-horsepower!

Both the Challenger and Charger have all-wheel-drive models available. Keep in mind that certain performance-driven trims are only available with rear-wheel-drive, which is considered to be traditional for a muscle car.


Although they ride on similar bodies, the Charger and Challenger have unique styles. The 2019 Challenger sticks close to its roots, with round headlights, a long hood, and a shortened trunk. Additionally, the sides are highly sculpted to be easily recognizable as a Challenger. The Charger, on the other hand, looks more like a sedan. Despite being somewhat more traditional in body shape, it still manages to look stylish and sporty. If you are looking for an even more aggressive appearance for your new Dodge, you can add 20-inch wheels and a body kit to the SRT models of both the Challenger and Charger.


Both of these vehicles come standard with the UConnect software on a 7-inch touchscreen. Specific models of either car are also available with an 8.4-inch screen. The larger screen brings along with its other upgrades, such as navigation and an extra USB port. The Charger, with its larger backseat, also has two USB ports and an additional 12V port in the rear. Both vehicles have the option of adding the Harmon Kardon premium audio system.
