Build your 2019 Dodge Challenger online now

by Patrick Rall on

Although dealerships have been taking orders for the 2019 Dodge Challenger for months, the Build & Price configurator on Dodge.com went live earlier today. Now that this cool is available, those prospective Challenger buyers who have been waiting for a chance to price out their ideal Mopar muscle car can now do so – giving them a clear idea of what to expect when they go to the dealership.

Important Update: We have learned that the 2019 Dodge Challenger information is not complete and in some cases, it may not be accurate. As we mentioned, the 2019 Challenger info is not hotlinked from the main website and in speaking with folks from the company, the 2019 Challenger figures were purely preliminary info that was serving as a placeholder as the brand prepares to add that model to their website. This is why there weren’t pictures and why some of the options that we know will be offered were not listed.

The link where we got this information has since been removed from Dodge.com, so we have removed the link that we included below.

In other words, the numbers discussed below, the numbers on the page on Dodge.com that we linked at the end of the article and that are being discussed all over social media are likely to change when the 2019 Challenger Build & Price page fully goes live on the brand’s website. In speaking with our dealership connections, we have already found some discrepancies in the dealer order guide numbers compared to the preliminary information on Dodge.com (that is now gone).

With this in mind, don’t go into your local dealership expecting to pay these figures, as they are not official and the proper figures may vary. When the proper 2019 information arrives online, you will find it here on Allpar.com.

Simpler Configurator

Unlike the 2018 model year that listed 16 trimlines to Build and Price, the 2019 Challenger lineup has been simplified, as has the configurator tool on Dodge.com. As a result, there are only six trimlines available for the 2019 Challenger, including the SXT, the GT, the R/T, the R/T Scat Pack, the SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Both the SXT and GT can be ordered with all-wheel-drive this year, and for those wondering about the Shaker and T/A models from 2018, they are now listed in the “Packages” portion of the configurator for both the R/T and the R/T Scat Pack.

Real World Base Pricing

We previously touched on the base pricing of the 2019 Dodge Challenger models, but the configurator tool allows us to see the actual pricing for all of the features that we want. This way, those buyers on a budget can figure out how little they can spend on their ideal Mopar muscle car while those buyers with deeper pockets can find out how much they will pay for their loaded muscle car. All prices below include any application Gas Guzzler Tax, as well as the destination fee of $1,395.

The 2019 Challenger SXT with rear-drive starts at $28,960 while the all-wheel-drive SXT starts at $31,690. Those prices includes the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and the 8-speed automatic transmission.

The 2019 Challenger GT serves as a slightly better-appointed version the SXT, including the 3.6-liter V6, the 8-speed automatic transmission and more features – both standard and optional – than you can get with the SXT. The rear-drive Challenger GT starts at $31,390 while the all-wheel-drive version starts at $34,390.

The 2019 Challenger R/T with the 375 horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi and the 6-speed manual transmission starts at $35,495 and opting for the 8-speed automatic brings the base price up to $37,090. Since we have received questions about the Shaker and T/A, we wanted to point out that the R/T Shaker with the manual transmission starts at $37,995 while the R/T-based T/A with the manual transmission starts at $38,895.

The 2019 Challenger R/T Scat Pack with the 485-horsepower 392-cubic inch Hemi and the 6-speed manual transmission starts at $41,390, including the $1,000 Gas Guzzler Tax. That same model with the automatic transmission starts at $41,985 and it should be noted that the automatic transmission does not come with the Gas Guzzler Tax that you get with the manual gearbox.

There is currently no Shaker package for the Scat Pack, which comes as a surprise, but there is the T/A package and the new Widebody package. The 392-powered T/A starts at $44,790 and the Widebody 392 car starts at $47,390 (both of those prices include the manual transmission).

The 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat with the 717-horsepower supercharged Hemi and the 6-speed manual transmission has a starting price of $61,745, including Gas Guzzler Tax and destination while opting up to the 8-speed automatic brings the price to $64,740. Some of you may notice that this is considerably less than the 2018 Hellcat base price, but keep in mind that the 2019 model year has been stripped of many standard features. They are all still available, but of course, they come with additional charges and for those who want a Widebody Hellcat with 717 horsepower, you are looking at a base price of $70,740.

Finally, the 2019 Redeye with the 797-horsepower Hemi from the Demon and the standard 8-speed automatic transmission starts at $72,745 while the Widebody version starts at $78,745

Per our update above, we have removed the link to Dodge.com to build the 2019 Challenger after the company removed the preliminary info from their website.
