2018 Dodge Challenger Bergen County NJ
One of the most talked about vehicles at our Bergen County, New Jersey dealership location is the 2018 Dodge Challenger. That’s because of the number of updates that this American classic has received for this model year.

Besides the all-new 840-hp 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon edition that we spoke about in a previous blog post, this vehicle also receives a Widebody version of the SRT Hellcat and a number of newly available features. With that being said, let’s take a look at what’s new for the Challenger.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Updates

First things first, let’s talk about the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody. It comes standard with pretty much all of the regular-bodied SRT Hellcat’s features, except it uses performance electric power steering with selectable modes instead of performance-tuned power hydraulic steering. There are also different wheels & tires and the widebody fender flares add 3.5” of width for an even more muscular appearance.

Other SRT trims also receive upgrades for 2018. The new Challenger SRT Hellcat receives a new grille, new fender badges, new red IP badging & illuminated Air-Catcher headlamps with the Hellcat logo. This trim also offers a Matte Vapor wheel finish, a Demonic Red Red Laguna leather interior and black, orange & gunmetal Brembo brake calipers as options.

If you opt to upgrade to the Challenger SRT 392, you can choose from either Low Gloss Black “5Deep” lightweight aluminum wheels that reduced the vehicle’s weight by 16 lbs or optional Brass Monkey wheels. Either way, you’ll get the performance you’re looking for out of this Dodge muscle car.

Non-SRT Model Updates

There are plenty of new things to enjoy about the 2018 Dodge Challenger, including the rear back-up camera that now comes standard in every model. Whether it’s parallel parking or backing out of your driveway, you can see everything that’s behind your vehicle on the Uconnect touchscreen.

For those opting for the SXT, R/T, R/T Shaker or T/A trim, you can now get a Uconnect 7" touchscreen radio with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. This allows for you to integrate your smartphone into your Challenger to perform functions like phone calls, texting and getting directions.

Other updates for the new Dodge Challenger include:

  • Super Track Pak with Nappa/Alcantara performance seats for the SXT Plus & R/T Plus
  • 19" aluminum wheel option with painted pockets for the GT
  • Optional red Brembo brake calipers for the R/T & R/T 392 models
  • All-new Performance Handling Package (4-piston Brembo brakes & high-performance suspension) on 5.7L V8-equipped models
  • F8 Green & IndiGo Blue exterior paint options
