What's New For The 2019 Challenger

Dodge is known for its constant drive to improve already stellar systems, and 2019 is no different.  The latest news of the Challenger changes into this model year are bound to excite any enthusiast of this legendary American-made muscle car at any level of its design and performance.  Whether you dream of this car for a great daily cruiser or aim for the biggest sounds and best speeds at the drag race, all trims of the Challenger bring new looks, features, and technology that, in Dodge fashion, pushes the envelope as far as possible.  From a revised trim level configuration to the next fastest and most powerful Challenger Dodge has to offer, Dodge has considered all details of every model to bring their customers the best 2019 has to offer.

Seven of the eight in new trim reconfiguration will mostly look familiar.  The SXT and GT gain AWD and RWD respectively, accounting for the first four base trim levels.  Then there's the R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and the SRT Hellcat, the 2018 leader of the pack. 2019 brings a new top dog, though; Dodge introduces the SRT Hellcat Redeye, the new fastest and strongest Hellcat available on the factory-produced market.  The Demon lends 25 major component upgrades to raise the Redeye's supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V8's performance to almost 800 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. A larger supercharger, strengthened connecting rods and pistons, high-speed valve train, fuel-injection system, and improved lubrication system are just some of the borrowed technologies that pump up the systems and pour out the adrenaline.  This system also features an industry-first SRT Power Chiller and After-Run Chiller that efficiently cools down the supercharger after the engine is turned off. Standard features that have given this beast a 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds include Line Lock, Launch Assist, Launch Control, and Torque Reserve, all designed to maximize traction upon the drag track, minimize slips, and provide immediate and consistent 707-lb ft torque performance throughout a straight.  

The exterior and interior looks of the Challenger gets further options to choose from to really personalize your muscle car.  New Caramel Nappa leather and houndstooth premium cloth upholstery become available in 2019, as well as a new Triple Nickel color option added to the rainbow of exterior paint options.  The SXT, GT, and R/T body designs have the new Blacktop Package to choose, featuring new Black Noise wheel finish and blacked out exterior detailing. The Super Track Pak supplies more racing cred with performance hood, splitter, and racing seats, and for those who want to really make this vehicle all their own, a Rear Seat Delete Group removes the second row to lighten the car up substantially, adding a rear cargo net instead.

Performance packages enhance the lower trims to offer the speed and handling you want out of your Challenger.  The Performance Handling Group adds on four-piston Brembo brakes, wider twenty-inch wheels, and a larger rear sway bar onto the GT trim.  The Performance Plus Package is designed to enhance the R/T models, adding on track ready twenty-inch forged wheels, high-performance tires, a limited-slip differential, and enhanced handling balance.  For the R/T Scat Pack specifically, a special Widebody build adds four inches for greater stability and wider performance wheels. Six-piston Brembo front brakes and suspension upgrades accompany the size improvement so this vehicle can handle like a dream and float around corners.  

No one improves like Dodge does.  Every year continues to deliver all-new unique builds, performance, and technology that truly showcase the dedication to innovation the Dodge engineers possess.  The 2019 Challenger is an attractive choice for those who wish for the best performance for their buck, the many trim levels and packaged design and performance equipment build exactly the car suited for your price bracket.  Check out our latest inventory of Challengers to see what Bodwell DCJ has in store for you!
