A 305-horsepower, 3.6-litre V6 matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission is the base powertrain in the 2016 Dodge Challenger. You get the looks and interesting performance, but not the fury. For the full musclecar effect, one has to skip the SXT and SXT Plus trims and move up to the R/T. Its 5.7-litre HEMI V8 develops 372 horsepower with the automatic transmission and 375 with the optional six-speed manual. Yes, if we want to row through our own gears, we have to pay an extra $1,000. Welcome to 2016.
