Once you’ve narrowed down the kind of vehicle you want and from which manufacturer you want it from you’re left to decide exactly which make and model will work best for you. The 2016 Dodge Challenger and the 2016 Dodge Charger are both sporty, fun-to-drive vehicles from the same manufacturer, but they each offer something different depending on the driver. See our side by side comparison to find out what each vehicle has to offer.


When it comes to performance, both of the vehicles are well-equipped and ready for action. The Challenger is slightly more powerful with its 6.4L V8 HEMI engine that outputs an impressive 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. The 2016 Charger’s 5.7L V8 HEMI engine emits a slightly less powerful roar with 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque. However, due to the difference in engine power the Charger gets better mileage with 14.7 L/100 km city and 12.4 L/100 km highway and the Challenger only gets 16.8 L/100 km city and 13.8 L/100 km highway.

The 2016 Challenger and 2016 Charger are also equipped with different standard transmissions that make their handling and performance vary slightly from one another. The Challenger’s manual transmission makes it well equipped for more sporty adventures, while the Chargers eight-speed automatic transmission makes it more easily controlled and better for daily driving and more controlled recreational activities.


In the features department the 2016 Challenger and the 2016 Charger offer many of the same standard and available features. Each offers cruise control, AM/FM radio, leather seats, optional navigation systems, power locks and mirrors, folding rear seats, option sun roof, remote keyless entry, and Uconnect communications system. The Charger does have a slight upper hand over the charger, though, as some features such as dual power front seats and premium radio are standard on it while they’re unavailable or optional on the Challenger.

Which Suits You?

Finding out which of these vehicles will suit you best comes down to deciding how much power you need and what kind of style you want it to come in. The 2016 Dodge Challenger is a sportier, sleeker midsize coupe with more potential power, while the 2016 Dodge Charger is a full-size sedan that’s still fairly sporty, but less powerful with better gas mileage. Whichever combination of features and performance work best for you will help to determine the best choice.
