- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
The 2022 Dodge Challenger is a two-door classic American car. It has unbelievable power, an iconic exterior style, and a surprisingly comfortable cabin. As a bonus, there are several trim levels and feature packages, allowing for customization. Although it does not look at it on the surface, the new Challenger is actually a pretty practical car worth learning more about.
What's New for 2022?
Dodge is not exactly known for making huge changes to its vehicles from year to year. Last year, they expanded the availability of the Widebody package to include more trim levels. This year, they added a deluxe security alarm to the R/T Scat Pack model of the Challenger. Buyers can also get that feature by adding the Convenience Group package to their car.
The entry-level 2022 Challenger is known as the SXT. It gets going with a 3.6L V6 engine that produces 303-horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. Coming with this engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission. The SXT is one of two trims to offer all-wheel drive instead of the standard rear-wheel drive.
For the R/T trim level, Dodge gives the Challenger a 5.7L V8 that makes up to 375-horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. That is only if buyers opt for the six-speed manual transmission, however. This engine can also be paired with an eight-speed automatic, but it loses a bit of its power.
The R/T Scat Pack utilizes a 6.4L V8 with an output of 485-horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. It has an upgraded engine cooling system and a launch control system. The SRT Hellcat goes with a supercharged 6.2L that can make 717-horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. That same engine is underneath the hood of the SRT Hellcat Redeye, where it makes 797-horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. The SRT Super Stock goes a step further, getting 807-horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque to offer.
The most fuel-efficient version of the 2022 Challenger is the one with the V6 and rear-wheel drive. It is estimated to get 19mpg in the city and 30mpg on the highway. All-wheel-drive models with the V6 go down to 18mpg city and 27mpg highway. These are not bad numbers when compared to similar vehicles with a V6.
With the 5.7L V8, the Challenger will get an estimated 16mpg city and 25mpg highway. The 6.4L V8 can give drivers up to 15mpg city and 24mpg highway. SRT models are the least efficient, getting only 13mpg in the city and 21mpg on the highway.
The 2022 Dodge Challenger comes standard with a rearview camera. Most models can add sophisticated driver assistance features, either alone or as part of a package. The list includes adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and rear parking sensors. Convenient driver aids like automatic high beams and rain-sensing windshield wipers are available as well.
A decent number of tech features are found on the base Challenger model. It gives drivers a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and two USB ports. The R/T Scat Pack is the first model on the list to go up to an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Integrated navigation is also available, plus satellite radio. Two premium Alpine sound systems are available, one with six speakers and the other with nine. There is also an 18-speaker Harman Kardon system that can be added to select models.
Two-door cars are not known for being spacious, but the 2022 Challenger is the exception. Both rows of seats have more than enough head and legroom. Adults should be comfortable in the back, even for extended periods of time. As for cargo space, there are 16.2 cubic feet in the trunk. Once again, this number beats the competitors by far.
In its base form, the Dodge Challenger is a little underwhelming inside the cabin. There are a variety of hard plastics, but that is not unexpected for a vehicle that prioritizes performance. If buyers really want luxury, upper trim levels offer everything from leather upholstery to heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
Most people can recognize the Dodge Challenger on sight. The SXT rides around on 18-inch wheels if buyers choose rear-wheel drive. All-wheel-drive models get 19-inch ones. Starting with the GT, most models get 20-inch wheels instead. The GT also has a functional hood scoop and foglights. SRT models get unique styling touches, plus upgrades like wider performance tires. Interestingly, the top SRT Super Stock goes back down to 18-inch wheels.
R/T Scatpack and Hellcat models can also add a Widebody package. It includes wider wheels and tires, plus fender flares. Also included are an upgraded suspension and larger Brembo brakes.
The 2022 Dodge Challenger is a surprisingly well-rounded car that can help buyers fall in love with driving again.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
