Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)
The 2019 Dodge Challenger is a rear drive coupe available in six trims.
SXT: The SXT base trim gives you a sporty adjustable suspension, 18 inch alloy wheels, two zone climate control, fabric upholstery, FCA UConnect interface with 7.0 inch touch screen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, a six speaker audio system and rearview camera.
