The current Dodge Challenger has been available since 2008 and is a pony car. It is a redesign of the original Dodge Challenger, which was introduced in the early 1970’s. Similar in size to the original, though smaller, lighter and more fuel efficient, auto transportation companies have plenty of experience shipping the Challenger and thus it should not present any unique complications during the shipping process. In this helpful auto transportation article we’ll discuss the Dodge Challenger in more detail, including covering all the key features for each of its six models, as well as what you can expect when it comes to booking with an auto transportation company and arranging for transport.
The six models available on the 2012 Dodge Challenger are the Challenger SXT, Challenger SXT Plus, the Challenger Rallye Redline, the Challenger R/T, Challenger R/T Plus and the Challenger R/T Classic. The Challenger SXT features a 305-hp 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with five-speed automatic transmission, 18-inch aluminum wheels, premium cloth seating and automatic temperature control. The Challenger SXT Plus features Nappa leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, uConnect hands-free phone or uConnect Voice Command system and a six-speaker Boston sound system with an acoustic amplifier. The Challenger Rallye Redline comes with a red center racing stripe, 20-inch gloss black chrome-clad aluminum wheels with Red Backbone lip, a body-color rear spoiler and Radar Red or Slate Gray leather-trimmed seats. The Challenger R/T features a 375-hp 5.7L V8 engine with six-speed manual transmission, performance steering and suspension, a rear body-color spoiler and fog lamps. The Challenger R/T Plus comes with Nappa leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats and mirrors, a security alarm and a Boston-powered six-speaker system with a 275-watt amplifier, and the Challenger R/T Classic features 20-inch aluminum wheels, High-Intensity Discharge headlamps, dual R/T side stripes and a functional hood scoop.
Though the new Challenger is a bit smaller than the older Challenger models, auto transportation companies shouldn’t have a difficult time moving it. The two main factors that go into your auto transportation quotes are the size of the vehicle and the pickup/delivery locations. Since the Challenger is a pony car, it’s no larger than a full-size sedan and thus is considered standard, with no additional overweight fees needed. Auto transportation companies charge more for heavier vehicles, as they require more fuel to transport them. The main concern with shipping a Challenger is the pickup and delivery locations. Typically, auto transportation is cheaper when shipping to and from large, heavily populated areas, and more expensive when shipping to or from a place off the beaten path. If you’re looking for auto transportation on a budget, it’s best to talk to an auto transportation representative about possible ways to save money on your shipment, if possible.
