SAFETY | 8 out of 10
Electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, front side airbags, and side curtain bags all remain standard across the model line. And at the top of the line, the Challenger SRT8 gets a few additional performance-safety features, including Hill Start Assist, which helps you launch the car smoothly on uphill starts, as well as upgraded Brembo brakes.
As we've noticed with several tests and drivers, outward visibility leaves lots to be desired in the 2011 Dodge Challenger. The high flanks and narrow windows already limit your frame of vision, but the thick rear pillar makes lane changes especially risky. This is a car in which a blind-spot system would be much appreciated.
Outward visibility from the 2011 Challenger isn't great, but safety equipment is impressive and past tests suggest that it offers good occupant protection.
