2022 Dodge Challenger Comes With Minor Exterior Changes
The new 2022 Dodge Challenger features retro appearance and muscle design. This model looks unique and is very recognized. However, the new Challenger lineup receives several minor updates for 2022. First of all, the body and shape are the same, while Dodge makes the front fascia more aggressive.
The revised ring LED headlights and aggressive hood are instantly giving this car a more sporty stance. From what we heard, the manufacturer will offer a new set of 20-inch wheels optional on the all-wheel-drive SXT. However, the same wheels will be standard on the all-wheel-drive GT models. On the back, we can expect the same sportiness with some small modifications.
