11 Ways the Dodge Challenger Updates the 1970s

The '70s are back in style in fashion, architecture, and the American automotive market. If you want to ride around in the automotive equivalent of bell bottoms and corduroy, there's no better way than in the modern Dodge Challenger.

This 21st century Challenger will easily outrun and outmaneuver the original – all while letting you stream psychedelic rock from your cell phone. Muscle cars from the 1970s were all muscle but lacked the handling and braking power of today's rides. Today, hot-rodders can spend tens of thousands of dollars upgrading those old muscle cars with modern engines, transmissions, and suspensions to create what gearheads call a "resto-mod." But with the latest Challenger, Dodge has already done all that for you in a big coupe that exhibits all the attitude of the original muscle car era.
