Much of Dodge's success as a performance brand can be attributed to its classic cars like the Dodge Challenger. Boasting a rich history and a promising future, the Challenger has helped shape Dodge into the brand as we know it, offering plenty of performance at a small cost.

The Challenger name dates back to 1958, when a limited edition of the fourth generation Dodge Coronet was referred to as the "Dodge Silver Challenger." The limited edition Challenger was available only in silver paint and featured white wall tires.

The first official generation Challenger appeared more than ten years later in 1969. The muscle car was an instant hit among car enthusiasts, thanks to its long wheelbase, comfortable interior, and muscular exterior design. Unfortunately, sales plummeted in 1970, and Dodge eventually discontinued the Challenger in 1974.

The Charger made a comeback for the 1978 model year, although the second generation Challenger was really an early version of the Mitsubishi Galant Lamda. This Challenger featured a slightly smaller engine and bright, vibrant paint colors. The Challenger was once again discontinued in 1983.

In 2008, Dodge outdid itself, bringing back the Dodge Challenger nameplate with full vengeance. Based on the original 1970 Challenger, the third generation Challenger features a striking retro design, modern features, and most importantly - a powerful engine. Variants, including the SRT, R/T, SXT and more appealed to a wide range of car enthusiasts, making this generation the most exciting yet.

Today, Dodge offers a variety of high-performance Challenger models, including the Challenger SRT Hellcat, which puts out an unprecedented 707 horsepower.
