In the modern era, it can be hard to justify buying a vehicle based on power and looks. We all want a nice looking car and we all want something that’s at least capable of hauling us around, if not enabling us to let loose every once in a while. But with so many safety and tech features, types of available vehicles, and different driving needs, getting a muscle car because it’s powerful and attractive are not always reasons enough to justify your actions. Except when it comes to the 2016 Dodge Challenger and the 2016 Dodge Charger.
Both vehicles are dripping with heritage and old-fashioned muscle car attitude, yet they both also employ modern, real-world sensibility and features. That’s largely what sets an automaker like Dodge apart from the competition. They have enough of everything and even more of that special something. When choosing to go the muscle route, it can be hard to choose between the two cars. So here at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we thought we would quickly point out a few of the features to help you out.
The 2016 Dodge Charger brings everything you love about an old-fashioned muscle car and combines it with a practical, everyday family sedan. The vehicle is available in eight trims starting with the 2016 Dodge Charger SE, and moving through the SXT, R/T, R/T Road & Track, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392, and the 2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. The base engine is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque. Inside, the touchscreen interface and refined materials mean that the muscle is left to the exterior while the tone is sophisticated inside.
On the other hand, you have the 2016 Dodge Challenger. Here you’ll find a slightly more rugged nature than its little brother. The body is bigger, wider, and longer. While a two-door, it can still accommodate adults in both the front and back and the performance isn’t sacrificed by the practicality. The touchscreen interface is intuitive and a supple ride doesn’t make you feel out of control. The 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT models are powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. However, upgrades will beef up that engine all the way to the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat which sports a 6.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
