Proudly Serving Denver, CO

Sports cars are all about glitz, glamour, and most importantly, pure speed. You've got to have some power under the hood, a sporty exterior, and plenty of techs to make the ride a little more fun. The Challenger fits the bill in 2018, but the 2018 Nissan GT-R tries its best to keep up. We're here today to take a look at which of these models might be right for you. While a test drive will best reveal which one is going to make the best sports car for you, you can learn a little bit by side by side comparison. Let's look at the 2018 Dodge Challenger next to the 2018 Nissan GT-R on several key areas.

Powertrain

If you want horsepower, you've got to get the Challenger. There's almost NO comparison here. The GT-R NISMO 3.8 turbo V6 engine might go all the way up to 600 horsepower, but the capability of the Challenger SRT Hellcat 6.2 supercharged V8 engine leaves that number in the dust with a hefty 707 horsepower that blows away the competition in every way. And while the base model of the Challenger won't get you the kind of horsepower you'll find in the general base model of the GT-R, you have maximum horsepower clocking in at a much higher rate with the Challenger. It's going to max out at a full 101 horsepower higher than the highest trim of the GT-R. The transmission of the Challenger is also more efficient. It's an 8-speed automatic transmission compared to the 6-speed automatic of the GT-R. Translation? For more horsepower and better handling, it's the Challenger all the way.

Passenger Space

Just because you're driving a sports car doesn't mean you don't need passenger and cargo space. For people with bigger families and active lifestyles, the Challenger gives you the best of both worlds. You'll get more passenger AND cargo space when you opt to buy the Challenger. Maximum passenger space for the GT-R is only four people while the Challenger maxes out at five people. Translation? You're going to travel a lot more comfortable if you're carrying passengers and cargo in the Challenger.

Convenience

The Challenger has a host of convenience features, like remote start, that the GT-R doesn't offer its drivers and passengers. If you hate starting your car on a cold day, you're going to love the convenience of remote start with the Challenger. You'll also have the option for a heated steering wheel for your Challenger, but you won't have that option if you buy the GT-R. These little touches mean a lot, especially in a powerful sports car that strives to look great but often leave out things that the Challenger has chosen to include. You have more options here, and we all know that options matter to customers. The Challenger does rise to the challenge.

As you can see, this is one head to head matchup where the Challenger comes out the champion. For more passenger space, engine capability, and convenience features, the Challenger is your car! It's larger than the GT-R as well, leaving you a lot more cargo space and the ability to look at a bit more impressive out there on the road. If you're interested in test driving the Challenger, we don't blame you!
