When you pick a Dodge Challenger 2020, you can choose between five different engine options. These various Challenger 2020 options mean that there is sure to be one to fit your lifestyle.
How to Choose an Engine
Some people know exactly what they are seeking in a car engine. Other people choose cars with visual appeal and interior features. However, it is good to have a basic understanding of how an engine works. To break it down, engines are comprised of:
Number of cylinders
Number of liters, or displacement
The number of cylinders signifies the size of the engine. Displacement affects power output and fuel efficiency. Horsepower connotes how much power the engine gives. Keep in mind that when purchasing a car, certain options are tied to specific engines.
While smaller engines give less power, many people prefer them because they are generally more fuel-efficient. Power aficionados, however, usually choose larger engines to give them the driving ability they crave. Here are the Challenger’s five different engine options.
