The SXT and GT trim levels available for both the 2022 Dodge Challenger and 2022 Dodge Charger offer all-wheel drive as an option. All trim levels include rear-wheel drive as standard equipment. The standard engine in both cases is a 3.6-liter V6, but it does deliver as much as 11 horses more in the Challenger due to the weight of the vehicle. If you prefer a V8, then you'll want to move up to at least the R/T trim level. Even more powerful V8 engines are available via the upper trim levels. The most powerful Charger is the SRT Hellcat Redeye with the Jailbreak package. It makes 807 horsepower. The most powerful Challenge is the SRT Super Stock, which also makes 807 hp.

The SXT and GT are the entry-level models aimed at drivers who want a traditional American sedan or coupe but not necessarily a muscle car.
