The unlikely combination of a true muscle car and fuel efficiency is what makes the Dodge Challenger one of the most popular cars on the road. While most modern sports cars rely on four cylinders for fuel efficiency, the Challenger offers a standard six-cylinder with a choice of V-8 engines.

The Challenger comes standard with a miserly 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine, delivering 305 horsepower, with highway mileage up to 30 miles-per-gallon. Even with the powerful supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat Hemi Redeye V-8 delivering an amazing 797 horsepower, Fuel Saver Technology automatically shuts off four cylinders until they are needed, resulting in 25 miles-per-gallon on the highway. All Challengers offer an available TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, further improving mileage.

Variable Valve Timing (VVT), modifying the timing of the lifting of the valve, increases fuel efficiency, resulting in better gas mileage while it improves performance, and allows for more efficient combustion, lessening emissions.
