Why the 2020 Dodge Challenger is a Sleeper Car
When you first see the 2020 Challenger, you might assume that it is a normal, everyday driver instead of a high-performing engine. Getting behind the wheel will completely change your mind. From performance features to the extremely powerful engine, here are some of the reasons why the 2020 Dodge Challenger is a sleeper car.
Design Features to Enhance the Fast Car Feel
Let’s start with how you can improve the exterior look of the 2020 Dodge Challenger. If you stick with a plain design with no extra features, untinted windows, and plain wheels, then you can see why people would think the Challenger is a sleeper car. When you add available features such as the Challenger script badge, Hellcat badge, or the 392 and Bee logos, then you’ll definitely enhance your exterior style to resemble a race car.
You can also add other features to improve the look, such as racing stripes for some more street style. Available upgrades like the black painted roof, wide-body design, and a variety of wheel color and finish choices to choose from add even more style.
Powerful Engine Options
With a race-derived engine such as 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 on the R/T that produces 375 horsepower, you can drive easy on any road. If you choose to move up and go with an option such as the 392 HEMI V-8 in the R/T Scat Pack, you will get 485 horsepower.
The monstrous engine on the SRT Hellcat is a 6.2-liter HEMI V-8. You will enjoy a roaring 717 horsepower in order to get you down the track in seconds. Finally, the Supercharged 6.2-liter high-output HEMI SRT Hellcat Redeye V-8 provides up to 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque.
With the available Three-Mode Electronic Stability Control, you can choose from Full On, Partial Off, or Full Off to adjust the amount of handling control you are receiving. The active exhaust system will amplify the sound of your powerful V-8 engine. Certain models of the new Challenger even have launch control like the high-end machine it is. The electronic shifter provides a smoother transfer with less effort while shifting.
High-Performance Braking System
To help you stop even from top speeds, there are several different brake systems to accomplish this. The sport brake system has 12.6-inch front rotors for a smooth stop on the Challenger SXT. The GT and R/T both come with a performance brake system with the Super Track Pak and has 12.6-inch front rotors and dual-piston sliding calipers for great braking performance. The Brembo four-piston brake system on the R/T Scat Pack and HEMI Scat Pack deliver amazing brake power with the 14.2-inch calipers in the front and 13.8-inch Toto’s. Finally, the Brembo six-piston system on the SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye has 15.4-inch Brembo two-piece rotors and six-piston calipers.
