According to some reports, 2018 Dodge Challenger will come completely redesigned. This model is considered as one of the most iconic pony cars of all time. Just like its main rivals Mustang and Camaro, it dates from the golden era of muscle cars, which was during 60’s and 70’s. In last decade, we saw a magnificent comeback of these models. Latest version of Challenger was released in 2008, and it was also refreshed about two years ago. Now, company prepares a redesign, which is expected to bring many improvements, such as weight reduction, more power, new styling, more features etc.
2018 Dodge Challenger specs
The 2018 Dodge Challenger is expected to come redesigned. These are unconfirmed news, but all indicates that this will happen for real. First of all, this model dates from 2008, which means that it is about time to see complete overhaul. Also, key competitors from Ford and GM already have their new models. New Mustang is already present for some time, while new Camaro will become available on the market very soon. Because of that, arrival of new 2018 Challenger sounds very realistic. So, what to expect from next generation? First of all, we will see a completely new platform. According to some reports, it will borrow a platform from Alfa Romeo. In any case, we expect to see significant weight loss. Current model was too heavy even for previous generation of Camaro and Mustang. So, significant reduction of total weight is expected.

Besides that, we expect all of the things that are expected from a redesign. The 2018 Dodge Challenger will come with completely new styling. We still don’t know exact details, but we hope that new model will carry on in the same retro-inspire manner, which singled out this model as the only true successor of the classic muscle cars.

Although we will see same engines in offer, we expect improvements in terms of power and economy.
