The Iconic Dodge Challenger Over the Years

The Dodge Challenger has a unique history spanning decades, but it had a brief break. The first Dodge Challenger arrived for the 1970 model year, sharing the E-Body platform with a long hood and short neck with the Plymouth Barracuda, but it had a longer wheelbase for more interior room. At first, it was available as a convertible or hardtop with two doors and in four trims. What made it truly impressive was the choice of nine powertrains ranging from a 225-cubic-inch I-6 to a 440-cubic-inch V8 and offering up to 425 horsepower. The 1971 Challenger only saw subtle styling changes, such as changing the single-taillamp design to feature two distinct lights and a new twin-inlet grille that was silver or black, depending on the model. There was also a new coupe featuring fixed quarter windows. The powertrains were also adjusted due to changing EPA emission standards. By 1972, the changing EPA regulations meant there were only three engines, offering 110 to 240 horsepower. The instrument cluster was redesigned for the Rallye option package in 1973, and the 1974 model year got enhanced safety equipment. Dodge ended Challenger production in 1974, but there was an imported two-door coupe available from Mitsubishi from 1978 to 1984. The Dodge Challenger finally made its return at the 2006 North American International Auto Show before the 2008 Challenger SRT8 debuted during the Chicago Auto Show of that year. The 2009 Dodge Challenger later made its debut at the New York International Auto Show before officially returning.
