Challenger or Charger: Price Range

The base Challenger SXT starts at $27,995 for the 2020 model. The Challenger is extremely customizable, with 7 trims and 5 engine options to build your ideal Challenger. Even the base engine will inject your daily drives with a burst of speed — but look out for the HEMI V8 engine options, which will get you track-ready performance on any everyday cruise from Charleston to Lexington. The lineup’s first 3 trims will cost you well under $40,000 — and for just over $41,000, you can upgrade to a HEMI V8 engine.

The 2020 Charger base SXT trim starts at $29,895 — around $2,000 more than the base Challenger. Choose from 6 trim levels and optional feature packages to further customize your Charger. Upgrading to the top SRT Hellcat Widebody trim brings the price to $69,645 MSRP. Curious about how the Charger stack up against key rivals? Take a look at how it compares with the Chevy Camaro on price, performance, and features.
