The wide array of engine options is one among other reasons why the Dodge Challenger is a highly recommended choice for you who are looking for something beyond power from an authentic muscle car. For the upcoming 2018 Dodge Challenger SXT, despite being the base trim level, this sports coupe will still become one of the best choices you can consider buying. While it’s true that the more powerful trims with V8 engine look more attractive, Challenger SXT and its V6 itself have offered more than its competitors.
2018 Dodge Challenger SXT Interior
Despite for being the base trim level, the Challenger SXT is still one of the top choices among coupes in terms of interior, thanks to its roomy cargo and passenger space. Compared to the competitors, we predict that the Dodge Challenger SXT 2018 will remain a way more livable everyday driver, although getting in and out the car may be a bit cumbersome due to the weight of the door panel. Plus, accessing the rear seat is pretty easier with a Challenger SXT, simply adding another advantage worth considering from this muscle coupe.
In terms of comfort, the ongoing Challenger SXT is also impeccable. While a firmer ride isn’t unsurprising with a sporty car like this, it still manages any small bump greatly. For the upcoming Dodge Challenger SXT, expect to see at least the same or even the improved seats and quiet riding quality, allowing the passengers and driver to enjoy even a long road trip. It is pretty hard to notice the engine noise even as you cruising at the highway. While it’s true that the tire noise is still present over particular surfaces, the sound deadening remains high quality for the class.
2018 Dodge Challenger SXT Engine
According to the ongoing model, the SXT is powered by a 3.6L V6, making it the only Challenger with no V8 engine under the hood. With 305 horsepower and 268 lb.-ft. of torque to produce, the V6 engine performs impressively although it’s indeed overshadowed by its V8-powered brothers. The handling is impressive, thanks to the grippy summer tires. The brakes, upgraded for the 2017 Challenger SXT, are outstanding. In general, we expect that the new Dodge Challenger SXT will still retain its great drivability, which allows this coupe to perform really well even for daily commotion.
2018 Dodge Challenger SXT Price
Referring to the 2017 Dodge Challenger SXT, the MSRP starts from around $26,000. Hence, expect to spend the same amount of money if you wish to bring home a Dodge Challenger SXT 2018 once it’s finally released to the market by the company. Bear in mind that the price will increase as you choose more optional features or package.
The only reason why the Challenger SXT looks ‘basic’ is because it’s the only one among Challenger lineup with V6 engine. But once you assess and drive this coupe yourself, you will discover and explore all the advantages this muscle car offers that the competitors in the segment don’t. Unfortunately, though, we still have to wait until the 2018 Dodge Challenger SXT is finally released to the market.
