It seems the newest generation of Challenger is going to feature a number of improvements. It will get smaller, lighter and more maneuverable. Oh, and the engine might get tweaked, too. You know what, let’s see in more detail what we can expect.
If you were looking for an official release date for the 2018 Dodge Challenger ADR, you will be disappointed. This is because there isn’t one yet.
Still, don’t be too sad. You should be able to get yours as early as late 2017, or Spring 2018.
2018 Dodge Challenger ADR Price
There is a lot riding on the price of the 2018 Dodge Challenger ADR, so it stands to reason why the manufacturer is being so secretive.
Still, earlier Challengers would go for anything between $33,000 and $63,000 depending on trim and other equipment.
Now that it has only two doors, the 2018 Challenger ADR is going to have to give up on some of its dimensions.
The new body is going to feature lots of new materials including aluminum and carbon fiber. This should add to its driving potential, make it lighter and more durable without affecting the price or comfort in a meaningful way.
Up front, the biggest change are the LED headlights and the more aggressive vibe because of the new air intakes. The most prominent rear feature is the double exhaust pipe.
Interior of Dodge Challenger ADR
On the inside, there is not much to be said about the 2018 Dodge Challenger ADR at this time. Some upgrades are to be expected, of course, but the most needed one is certainly the infotainment system.
Needless to say, connectivity is going to be on par with modern standards, meaning USB ports, Bluetooth, WiFi and all that goes with it. The dashboard could use a bit of updating as well, come to think of it.
Sure, the dimensions for the 2018 ADR seem to be smaller, but you could hardly guess it from the inside. There is plenty of headroom and your legs will be as comfy as ever.
To build up on it, we can expect high-quality leather all over the cabin, and on the steering wheel as well. Other features include parking assist, collision alert etc.
When it comes to the engine in the 2018 Dodge Challenger ADR, there isn’t much to go on for the time being. We are most likely looking at the old but upgraded 3.6 L Pentastar V-6.
The power output should be around 305 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, all directed by the 6-speed manual transmission. Of course, the same number of speeds is also available in the automatic version as well.
There could be another option, and that is the 6.4 L V-8 with its 485 ponies and 8-speed manual or automatic transmission.
All-wheel drive is optional, and if you decide to go cheap all you’ll get is power to the front wheels. Unfortunately, we have yet to see the exact specs so those will have to wait for another time.
