If you’ve been considering a 2016 Dodge Challenger, but aren’t sure how it stacks up against the competition in Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver, Derrick Dodge is here to help. We’ve prepared a comparison of the Challenger with one of its rivals, the 2016 Subaru BRZ. In every contest, the Challenger outperformed the Subaru, providing not only better power and features, but better handling as well. Take a look at our comparison, then stop by Derrick Dodge to take the Challenger for a spin.
The Dodge easily surpasses the Subaru when it comes to raw power under the hood:
- 2016 Dodge Challenger – Dodge offers drivers the choice of a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that produces 305 hp and 268 lb.-ft. of torque, a 375-hp 5.7L V8 that makes 410 lb.-ft. of torque, a 6.4L HEMI V8 capable of 485 hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, or a potent 6.2L HEMI Hellcat V8 engine that can generate 707 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
- 2016 Subaru BRZ – Subaru offers just one engine on the BRZ, a 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine that can make just 200 hp and 151 lb.-ft. of peak torque, which is less than one-third the power of the HEMI Hellcat engine offered by the Dodge.
The Dodge Challenger is equipped with special features that make it easier for drivers to control that extra power:
- 2016 Dodge Challenger – The Challenger SRT is equipped with 15.4-inch front and 13.8-inch rear rotors, allowing it to come to a full stop from 60 MPH in just 108 feet. The Challenger is also equipped with an automatic transmission as standard equipment, and offers a driver-adjustable suspension system that allows the driver to fine-tune their driving experience.
- 2016 Subaru BRZ – The BRZ is equipped with tiny 11.6-inch front and 11.4-inch rear rotors, which can be less effective. In Car and Driver testing, the Subaru required 120 feet to come to a stop from 60 MPH – an additional 12 feet, despite the BRZ being a smaller car. Subaru drivers also have to pay extra for an automatic transmission and don’t have access to driver-adjustable suspension options.
The Challenger is engineered to be safe, providing drivers with standard and optional features they won’t find on the Subaru, including:
- 2016 Dodge Challenger – The Dodge can be equipped with an optional Collision Warning System that not only warns you of obstacles in the vehicle’s path, but also pre-charges the brakes to help provide extra stopping power should it be needed. Other options include Blind Spot Warning, Cross-path Warning, and 911 emergency notification which can provide emergency services with your location should you be involved in an accident.
- 2016 Subaru BRZ – Subaru doesn’t offer features like Collision Warning, Blind Spot Warning, or Cross-path warning, making it more difficult for drivers to avoid accidents. Drivers also don’t have access to an emergency notification system, so if the BRZ is involved in an accident, help may take longer to arrive.
