Using the floor plate of the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger, the Challenger began its career as a true hard-line muscle car. Immediately after its 2008 debut, it became a hit, thanks to its ingeniously modernized retro shape and the rumbling V8 engines.
No one cared anymore that his floorboard, coded LX, and most of all the chassis components were from former Merdesek (Chrysler and thus Dodge were also Belonged to the DaimlerChrysler group at that time), and the roots of the technology go beyond the W211 E-Class, the W210 produced in the 1990s, and the differential and ESP system also came from the Germans.
While the Ford Mustang knows how many times it has been refurbished, it doesn’t even recognize the Chevrolet Camaro, the 2008 Dodge Challenger stores a few fresh parts in unchanged form. In the third quarter of 2019, for example, this was bought by most in the United States, for a total of 16,332 pieces. Of the Ford Mustangs, 13,851 units were sold during the same period, followed by the Chevrolet Camaro with 8,366 units.
It’s true that the Mustang has been the winner for the whole year, with 47,637 sales, but the Challenger’s 38,350 sales are still astounding, as it is still a 2008 car and the Ford Mustang came out in 2015 with the sixth generation. , which received a major update in 2018.
The Dodge Challenger seems like a good wine, it ripens over time, and people are still looking at raw power and a never-aging cool look, all the other side-by-side in the muscle car category.
