Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The 2022 Challenger SRT Hellcat doesn’t power-slam gas like a competitive drinker—at least, not more than its competition. Its rated at 13 mpg in the city and up to 22 mpg on the highway. The Camaro ZL1 and Shelby GT500 top out at 14/21 mpg city/highway and 12/18 mpg city/highway, respectively. The last Hellcat Challenger we ran on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, wasn’t far off its 22-mpg EPA estimate. For more information about the Challenger’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

More powerful Challenger models cost more to insure
The Dodge Challenger is available in several trim levels, and, unsurprisingly, the more expensive models generally cost more to insure. Besides simply having a higher price, premium Challenger models also have additional horsepower and torque, which often lead to higher insurance costs. For example, the 2022 Challenger SRT Hellcat has 717 horsepower and a top speed of 203 MPH. By comparison, the R/T has 372 horsepower, and the standard SXT has 303 horsepower.

Dodge’s nomenclature for different models of Challengers has changed over time. Prior to 2015, the high-performance model SRT was known as the SRT8. After 2015, the model was renamed the SRT Hellcat. Additionally, the SXT base model was called the SE in the U.S. prior to 2012.
Dodge Demon: a limited-edition car with high-priced coverage
In 2018, Dodge released an ultra-powerful, special edition of the Challenger called the Dodge Demon. The car’s starting price was $83,295 — nearly triple that of the base Challenger model — and they now regularly sell for more than six figures. Car insurance for the Dodge Demon is $5,314 per year, which is 64% more expensive than insurance for a Challenger SXT.
New Dodge Demons are no longer available for purchase. Drivers looking for a Demon will have to turn to the used market, where Demons typically sell for well above the MSRP.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Both models boast a Uconnect infotainment system that is simple to use and filled with features. These include navigation, a bumpin’ stereo, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The standard 8.4-inch touchscreen is usefully large and features icons that can be easily selected with a finger. There are volume and tuning knobs for quick audio-system adjustments. While the navigation responds quickly to inputs with a large onscreen keyboard, the map graphics look dated and cartoony.
