Considering that the Challenger seduces with its retro good looks and the crackle and burble of its V-8 engines, it's a bit surprising that these models are as well equipped as they are for the money—at least toward the more affordable end of the lineup.

The base 2013 Dodge Challenger SXT includes automatic climate control; power windows, locks and mirrors; a CD player; and cruise control, as well as a trip computer, Keyless Enter-N-Go, and a power driver's seat. SXT Plus models add soft Nappa leather seats, heated front seats, ParkSense park assist, fog lamps. On top of that, a Rallye Redline edition adds an exaggerated 'bad-boy' look plus a lower axle ratio, performance suspension and steering tune, and larger disc brakes.

Features farther up the model line include a Boston Acoustics premium sound system and HID headlamps, and options include a navigation system (with a clean, simple interface) and in-car wireless Internet, through a plug-in cell-network data dongle.

There are quite a few special appearance, striping, wheel, and trim packages offered on top of these core trim levels. All told, an SRT8 can easily total more than $50k, which arguably makes it something other than a muscle car. If this is a car that pushes all the right nostalgia buttons, that might be just fine.

 

Conclusion

For an affordable base price, the 2013 Challenger offers a lot of features; R/T or SRT8 models may be accompanied by some sticker shock, though.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
