Challenger or Charger, Which Will You Choose?

Now that we’ve compared these two Dodge muscle cars, will it be the Challenger or Charger? Both have similar pricing, but the top trim of the Challenger is a bit more expensive than the top Charger trim. With that extra cost, you do get a more powerful engine for cruising from Decatur to Chatham. The Charger top trim is a smart choice if you’re more budget focused.

Whichever muscle car you choose, you’re sure to enjoy the thrill of the driving experience and the well-designed interiors. Visit our showroom and test drive both vehicles around Springfield to help you finalize your decision.
