The full spread of 2018 Dodge Challenger models are now available in the “Build & Price” section of Dodge.com, allowing us to look at how the 2018 prices differ from the 2017 models. In some cases, the price remains unchanged, but many of the returning trimlines are more expensive for the new model year, with increases ranging up to $1,300 for the Hellcat.


The 2018 Dodge Challenger has 16 trimlines, so to make it a little easier to break down the pricing changes, we will go by engine size. None of these prices include destination, which is a flat $1,095.

The Hellcats
Last, but most certainly not least, we have the three models which are powered by the supercharged 6.2 liter Hemi V8 : the SRT Hellcat, Hellcat Widebody, and the Demon. The Widebody Hellcat and Demon are both new, so there is no comparison price from 2017, but the original Hellcat Challenger pricing climbed by $1,300 for 2018, making it the most substantial in terms of the new model year price increase.

Trim – 2017 Price – 2018 Price – Change
Hellcat - $64,195 - $65,495 - +$1,300
Hellcat Widebody – New - $71,495
Demon – New - $85,590
