2018 Dodge Challenger and Charger Trim Levels

Dodge has rolled out a few innovations this year. Among their line, the Challenger and Charger stick out. Between new trim inclusions, rad configurations and innovative driving solutions, the automaker is pulling ahead in the coupe and sedan categories.

Let’s take a closer look at the 2018 Challenger and Charger lineup.

2018 Dodge Challenger Trims

This year’s Dodge Challenger continues the line’s age-old bulk-front design, giving customers more control than ever across seven trims and seven configurations:

The SXT Trim

Starting at $27,295, the SXT trim offers two-wheel-rear-drive, reaching up to 305 horsepower on a powerful V-6. The SXT boasts an eight-speed automatic transmission or an auto-manual transmission. This said, it’s still the basic level while garnering a combined 23 mpg.

The GT Trim

Starting at $33,995, the GT trim is also powered by a V-6, hitting 305 horsepower. Also boasting an eight-speed automatic or auto-manual, the GT offers a small upgrade from the SXT due to its all-wheel drive. A small con, here, is its combined 21 mpg—which is a small downgrade from the SXT.

The R/T Trim

The R/T is a two-wheel-rear-drive coupe which starts at $33,995. While it only hits around 18 mpg, its 375-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8 is definitely a boost from the other trims. Drivers will enjoy its six-speed manual option, as well as its road-grabbing rear-wheel drive design.

The R/T 392 Trim

Starting at $38,995, the R/T 392 gets a little less gas mileage at 17 mpg. Still, it features a boosted 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 at its premium level.

The SRT 392 Trim

The two-wheel-rear-drive coupe starts at $49,495. It packs a 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8, which is far more potent than some of the lower trims. As a con, however, the trim’s price takes a bit of a jump—which may not be economical for all drivers.

The SRT Hellcat Trim

This upper-level Challenger trim starts at $64,295 and packs a punch via its 707-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8. Equipped with an eight-speed automatic, the Hellcat is a powerful contender against today’s leading coupes.

The SRT Demon Trim

Finally, the SRT Demon rolls in at around $83,295. It offers a premium 808-horsepower via its 6.2-liter V-8 with an eight-speed automatic transmission. While this top-of-the-line trim is epic, its combined mpg still isn’t known—though we’re guessing it’s around 16 mpg, if not a little lower.

2018 Dodge Charger Trims

The 2018 Dodge Charger packs a number of new features, and it’s been given a hefty power boost since 2017. Let’s jump into the trims:

The SXT Trim

The base trim, starting at $28,995, benefits from its 23 mpg. Still, its 292-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 might not be enough for all Dodge-lovers.

The SXT Plus Trim

The next trim begins at $30,495. While economical, especially due to its combined 23 mpg, the SXT Plus sticks to the SXT’s 292-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6. The price increase is due to its four-wheel drive design, however, which might be optimal for some.

The GT Trim

The GT starts at $32,995, utilizing a 300-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 while achieving a combined 21 mpg. It offers an eight-speed automatic, which is a decent boost from earlier models. It also features all-wheel drive.

The R/T Trim

Starting at $35,495, the R/T has a lot to offer for the minor price increase. Still, its 370-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 hits a combined 19 mpg. It offers rear-wheel drive, however, giving the sedan plenty of back-end control.

The R/T 392 Trim

The R/T 392 starts at $39,995, which is a bit of a big price jump. Drivers will love its powerful 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8, however, which is paired with an eight-speed automatic and auto-manual transmission.

The SRT 392 Trim

The SRT 392 starts at $51,145, but it boasts a similar 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 as the R/T. The price increase is justified by its slightly different onboard amenities, however, which may intrigue Dodge-lovers looking for something new.

The SRT Hellcat Trim

The SRT Hellcat starts at $66,295, but its 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 is certainly worthwhile. Packing an eight-speed automatic, the rear-wheel drive sedan sits at the top of the Charger line.

ProClip as the Perfect Dodge Accessory

As for onboard amenities, all ProClip Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger mounts are officially licensed Mopar accessories. Regardless of the trim you’re looking for, you’ll have plenty of warranty and maintenance support.
