2022 Dodge Challenger Enhanced Safety

The 2022 Dodge Challenger is one of the most iconic muscle cars in the world. Since its introduction in the early 1970’s, Dodge has been improving the Challenger in every way, from the chassis all the way up to the amenities that are offered. Today we’re going to cover the impressive safety features that come equipped in the 2022 Dodge Challenger, and see why it is one of the safest muscle car options on the market today.

Before we get into the safety features, let’s discuss the engine options you can choose from in the 2022 Challenger. First up is the base engine, a 3.6-liter V6 producing 303 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. Next you’ll have the option of two different Hemi’s, the first being a 5.7-liter V8 making 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque, and the second being a more powerful 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Lastly, there is a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8, making an impressive 717 horsepower and 656 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, with all-wheel drive available. As for the transmission, an eight-speed automatic is standard and a six-speed manual is optional.

A suite of safety features is present on the 2022 Challenger, including features such as automatic high-beam headlamps, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross path detection, adaptive cruise control, full-speed forward collision warning, ParkView® rear backup camera, active front head restraints, rain-sensing windshield wipers, rain brake support, and much more. You can’t always be on guard while driving, but when you’re in a 2022 Dodge Challenger you don’t have to be. 

An interesting feature that is new for 2022 is the Challenger’s deluxe security alarm. This anti-theft measure is being introduced by Dodge to combat the theft of Challengers, which are an attractive target to thiefs. Over 6,000 Dodge Chargers and Challengers have been stolen over the past five years. There are three important features on the deluxe security alarm:

  • Enhanced Security function: Allows you to input a four-digit code into the radio head unit, temporarily reducing the car’s speed to under 3 horsepower.
  • Key Programming Lockdown: Ensures that thieves with more technical abilities can’t make a copy of your keys by hacking into the car’s electrical system by restricting the production of new keys.
  • Intrusion Module: Will start blaring an alarm when it detects a broken window. The sensors can also detect when someone is trying to unlawfully tow the vehicle or reach their hand through the window. 

Whether you’re out driving, or if your Challenger is parked, you and your vehicle’s safety is always being considered and taken care of. If you’re interested in a 2022 Challenger, or if you want to learn more, come on down to Briggs Dodge of Topeka. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff would love to assist you in any way possible.
