2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic in Detonator Yellow - Click above for high-res image gallery

While it lacks the agility of the Mustang GT and the raw knuckle-dragging power of the Camaro SS, the Dodge Challenger drips with style and no small amount of comfort, plus it's plenty fun in its own right, too. As you all know, there's not a lot of new stuff going on with Chrysler's 2010 lineup, so to keep things interesting with the Challenger, they're doing it with colors. We've seen the big coupe in Plum Crazy already, and now, via Red Letter Dodge, we have our first look at a Challenger R/T Classic in Detonator Yellow, the special "high impact" color that preceded the currently-available Plum Crazy. Not shabby. Check it out in high-res in the attached gallery.

      So you can only get this on the V8s plus you have to pay for a special package on top of that?

      Mustang and Camaro are offering a great lineup of colors across all the models. No wonder they're destroying the Challenger in sales.

      great design work applied to a chassis that wasn't meant for it. This car desperately needs to sit an inch lower and get a new dashboard.

        this car is very accommodating for its intended audience. its not a sports car, its a big, powerful touring car that is good to look at. for that purpose, job well done!

      Needs wider rubber.

      This car is on pace to sell 28,000 for the year. This car was never meant to be a volume seller as Chrysler originially estimated 30k a year. The interior/dash I think is just fine because I own one! Could it be a tad nicer, yes... however I like it. Yea, the SRT8 HP wise is not worth the extra 10k or so comparied to the SS Camaro... but... these kinds of cars you decide which one to buy by the looks really. The Camaro and the Challenger weight wise are about the same AND the Challenger is much bigger. Try getting someone that has legs in the back seat of a Camaro... and that tiny trunk opening. No Navigation is available on the Camaro and you cannot get a multi-disk CD player either.

      Too bad the company that builds it is in a coma if not dead, huh?

        too bad you're still posting, huh?

      IM a FORD man, so naturally I like the Mustang, but these Challengers are pretty cool. I wouldn't buy one, but I definitely like them better than the Camaro, which I don't like at all.

      Have. I must

      One of the best looking cars on the market.

      I like it. It is a muscle car, goes like stink in a straight line, is so-so in the curves. Good thing most of the US is flat. The colors are a good idea, I like the classic package with traditional lettering and the wheels too.

      Mustang isn't selling because buyers in the know are waiting for the 5.0 next year or the new V6 with 300 hp. I am thinking there will be some good deals to be had on 2010 Mustangs in a few months.

      I still fear Chrysler depreciation (cliff-like) but if you want it and want to keep it for many years then it is a good buy. A used Chrysler is even more terrifying. What is the life span of a Chrysler these days? 60,000 miles? I've always wanted Chrysler to succeed, it is kinda like rooting for the Lions. You know that somewhere deep in the bowels are some people that really care and work super hard, but no matter what, it is doomed. I hope I am wrong.

        60 000 miles? My 05 Chrysler 300 V6 has 130 000 trouble free miles, and my wife is still driving 01 Grand Caravan with 170 000 miles mostly trouble free, just tires, brakes
        and one water pump. Not bad

        Resale value for the Challenger is excellent. Used ones are selling at or near the original sticker price and according to kbb.com, the trade in value of my 09 R/T is slightly higher than what I paid for it. Resale values on Jeep Wranglers are good too.

        As far as the average Chrysler having a lifespan of 60,000 miles, maybe you should look at the odometer of my Dodge Ram with 216,000 miles (never rebuilt.)

        Pretty ignorant comment there honestly.

        I guess a 600K mile 98 Dakota doesn't qualify?

        BTW, the FRAME hasn't rusted to bits (IE: Toyota). I have no issues with any car from any manufacturer to hit 200K miles with no issues. All of my Chryslers have went past 150K with nothing but brakes, and rubber products, along with the GM's that I have owned.

      This one of the few modern cars that look good with chrome wheels. Easily the best looking modern muscle car coming out of Detroit.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It does look good, but I think I'd like it with black wheels better.
