2023 Dodge Challenger Engine and MPG  

The Dodge Challenger has many engine options, making it a fantastic car for daily driving or hitting the local track. Just over 300 horsepower is produced by the standard V-6 engine, which is more than plenty for city driving. You can choose between a smaller 5.7-liter V-8 engine and a larger 6.4-liter V-8 engine as you advance through the trims to increase acceleration.  

However, you should choose a Dodge Hellcat engine if you want your Challenger to shift off the line as quickly as possible. The Challenger’s Hellcat Supercharged V-8 is available in several variants, with outputs ranging from 717 hp to an impressive 807 hp.  

Few rivals can equal the Challenger’s engine power. The Ford Mustang, which has a 760-hp engine, is the closest competitor to the Challenger’s top-of-the-line 807-hp engine.

Given the various engines available in the Challenger, a wide variation of fuel efficiency is expected. The standard V-6 engine in the rear-wheel drive variant offers 19 mpg on city roads and 30 mpg on the highway. The 6.4-liter V-8 model gets 15 mpg and 24 mpg, while the 5.7-liter V-8 model gets slightly worse gas efficiency at 16 mpg and 25 mpg, respectively. You probably won’t consider fuel economy if you choose the supercharged V-8 variant. But you’ll only get 13 mpg on city roads and 21 mpg on highways.
