The new Dodge Challenger is a modern classic, there’s so much to like about the new model. To begin with. The Dodge Challenger SXT is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft. of torque.
The vehicle is only available in eight-speed automatic transmission and like every Challenger, it is a rear-wheel drive. The car goes 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds, which is fast but not as fast as an automatic Mustang EcoBoost.
The Hellcat has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 which is great for an enormous 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft. of torque. It comes with eight-speed automatic transmission and six-speed manual transmission. For the manual, it goes 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds and 4.1 seconds with the automatic and launch control function.
Hence, it is a better choice for the Dodge Challenger to go supercharged since it does not only force more air into the car’s engine, making it more powerful. Being attached to the crankshaft, which equals to less efficiency and more fuel power.
