THE 2016 DODGE CHALLENGER SXT V6 REVIEW

Cole With Challenger

The biggest drawback to driving the 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT automatic is the blind spots. Blind spot visibility is non-existent with this car. Not being able to check your blind spots in this powerful American muscle car just makes you use the accelerator more aggressively to be sure that you can clear whatever may be lurking nearby.

The Challenger got better than expected gas mileage on the highway — close to the promised 30 mpg. Most importantly this baby hugs the road even when going over big California highway bumps at 75 or 80. Its wide wheelbase makes for very little body roll. Weighing in at a hefty 3,834 lbs, no amount of windy conditions on the Grapevine could make you feel like might be blown over, as is the case with so many lighter cars. This thing is a BEAST. The car is so comfortable that you feel like you're only going 30 when you're doing 60. The base issue SXT has a V6 that contributes to the vehicle's respectable gas mileage with 305 horsepower.

It might not have the 0 to 60 giddy up of its R/T brother (with 372 horsepower), much less the SRT Hellcat (with its scary 707 horsepower), but this car is a blast to drive and looks especially sweet hanging out a a Southern California beach. The trunk is enormous, and the back seats are plenty spacious. Mainly, other drivers take you seriously when you're driving this car; you don't have as many tailgaters in their monster trucks when you're tooling down the highway in the fast lane. The design muscle on display earns respect.
