2013 Dodge Challenger SXTThe 2013 Dodge Challenger is available now at Jackson Dodge in Medicine Hat. The latest Challenger gives muscle car enthusiasts the best of both worlds, as it is powerful and fun to drive while still being comfortable for your daily commute. The new model is offered with a great selection of powerful engine options and well-equipped trim levels. Medicine Hat drivers looking for an affordable muscle car will probably come across the Chevy Camaro in their research as well, which is also offered in several trim levels, including the popular 1LS. We’ve compared the 1LS against the Camaro’s SXT and looked at all the facts, and to us it’s clear that the more affordable Camaro gives you a lot more bang for your buck. But when it comes to an investment as important as a car, you to need to find out for yourself — so read on and then visit us at 1500 Strachan Rd. S.E. in Medicine Hat today for a test drive of the latest Challenger. We are only about two hours from Swift Current via the Trans-Canada Highway, and our sales department is open Monday through Saturday.

Powertrain and Fuel Economy

The Challenger is more affordable than the Camaro, starting at $26,995, while the Chevy Camaro is priced at $28,200. This difference would of course be reasonable if you were getting something extra for that $1,205, but it’s the Challenger that ends up offering you more.

For example, the 2013 Challenger SXT is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine that is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, and it comes standard with an engine block heater, which will come in handy during the cold Saskatchewan winter. The Camaro 1LS also has a 3.6L V6 engine, and it’s paired with a six-speed manual transmission, not allowing you to choose an automatic.

Interior Features

The Dodge Challenger really sets itself apart from the Camaro with its interior. The new Challenger is a great choice for a stylish vehicle that is still practical enough for a small family. Inside the cabin, the Challenger features standard bucket seats in front and a 60/40 split rear bench in back, with seating for five passengers total. It also features automatic climate control, rear cup holders, and overhead storage to accommodate your whole family’s needs. The Camaro, on the other hand, includes sport seats and a full bench seat in back, but only seats four. Also, its air conditioning is manual.


The Dodge Challenger also has more room for cargo (almost 140L more than the Camaro) and passengers. Inside the cabin where a few mm can make a huge difference to your driving comfort, the Challenger offers more legroom, headroom, and shoulder room than the Camaro. Dimensions include:
