Can a Dodge Challenger be a Daily Driver?

When everyone thinks of the Dodge Challenger, they think “beast”. After all, it does churn out 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque and tow 5000 lbs with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. But what makes the Challenger so great is that it's not only the King of the racetrack but also the King of the road.

A must-have muscle car
One of the quintessential high-performance cars in the United States, the Dodge Challenger is loved by millions. When it comes to fuel economy, very few high-performance cars can beat the Challenger. The model averages an MPG of 19/23/30 in the city/combined/highway and has a history of supporting long-distance road trips without giving rise to any problems.

The car is available in both the rear-wheel-drive and the all-wheel-drive versions. While it isn’t suited for snowy terrain, the Challenger can handle icy roads and slippery slopes in the city pretty well. The suspension is great and handles rolls and jumps well, ensuring the people in the back seat aren’t tossed around. The brakes are really strong and responsive too, and the car can reach 60 mph from a standstill within105ft.

Comfort guaranteed
Muscle cars have a bad rep for sacrificing comfort in exchange for performance. But not the Dodge Challenger. Unlike other competitors in the same category, the Dodge Challenger is a spacious 5-seater perfect for the entire family. Once the kids scoot in, they’ll still have plenty of space in the backseat to move around. The seats themselves are soft and well-cushioned. This adds to the comfort of the drive. The trunk space is phenomenal too – 16.2-cubic-foot, which is almost double that of other sporty coupes.

Then there are the top-notch safety features:

• ABS
• airbags
• LATCH child locks
• seatbelt pretensioners
• blind-spot monitoring
• lane keep assist
• rear cross-traffic alert
• forward collision warning
• traction control
• adaptive cruise control
• rear back-up camera
• LED headlamps
• rain brake support
• hill start assist
• stability control and more.
