What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Dodge Challenger MPG

Dodge Challenger Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2012 2dr Coupe 470-hp 6.4L V8 6-sp manual RWD Better than I thought I would get out of a Huge V8. It is my Daily Driver so I do fether the pedal sometimes. If hypermiling I can get 27 to 31 highway and a combination of 23mpg total......if I can get through a tank without opening it up.
Dodge Challenger Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2012 2dr Coupe 470-hp 6.4L V8 6-sp manual RWD I think they could have made the 4 cylender deactivation for the Manuel as well and improve gas milage.
2009 2dr Coupe 375-hp 5.7L V8 6-sp manual RWD City milage is not very good and it is so hard to stay off the gas.
