The Dodge Challenger has been an icon on roads in the Westchester County NY and Fairfield County CT area since 1970. The 2018 Dodge Challenger gives you even more options that you’ll enjoy including 15 exterior colors, 6 interior color combinations, 5 engines and 16 models to choose from.
In total, there are 9 new things to note in this sports car. We already went into detail about the all-new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in a previous blog post, so we’re going to detail the 8 other updates for this 4-door muscle car.
1. ParkView Rear Backup Camera
This first update applies to every 2018 Dodge Challenger at our dealership serving Norwalk CT since a ParkView rear backup camera now comes standard. Appearing in the center console display when the car is in reverse, this technology shows you how close you are to an object, person or animal when backing the vehicle out of a driveway or into a parking spot.
2. Uconnect 4
There’s a new infotainment system that comes standard in the Dodge Challenger SXT, R/T, R/T Shaker & T/A: Uconnect 4. You’ll be in control of your entertainment with the easy-to-use 7” touchscreen display, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are onboard to integrate your smartphone to make calls, send texts, get directions, play music from your library & more.
3. Super Track Pak
If you opt for the available Super Track Pak on either the 2018 Challenger SXT Plus or R/T Plus, you’ll get to sit in Nappa/Alcantara performance seats. Not only are they more comfortable, but they’re made to keep you in place when handling sharp turns or putting the pedal to the metal on highways like I-95, the Merritt Parkway and I-287.
4. Shakedown Package
Available on Challenger R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker, the 2018 Dodge Challenger Shakedown Package takes inspiration from the 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger concept first shown at the 2016 SEMA show. It includes white-face gauges on the instrument cluster, unique asymmetrical black racing exterior stripes and a new Alpine premium audio system.
5. Performance Handling Package
Looking for a driving experience that gives you even more control? Then, you’ll enjoy the all-new Performance Handling Package which gives models equipped with the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine 4-piston Brembo brakes and high-performance suspension to make taking turns even smoother.
6. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Widebody
Powered by the 707-hp supercharged 6.2L HEMI Hellcat V8 engine, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Widebody is designed for track driving thanks to its additional 3.5” of width. A few unique features to this model are:
- Fender flares

7. New Wheels
There are 2 updated wheel options available for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT 392. You can choose from either Low Gloss Black “5Deep” lightweight aluminum wheels that reduce the vehicle’s weight by 16 lbs or the available Brass Monkey wheels for a unique look.
In addition, the 2018 Dodge Challenger GT AWD is now available with 19” aluminum wheels with painted pockets that combine a sporty look with outstanding performance in the rainiest, snowiest, iciest and slushiest of driving conditions.
