Challenger

The Dodge Challenger was Dodge’s response to the Mustang, it was a little late in the race though. Ford's Mustang had taken off as the "Pony Car" of the day. It would have been something else if Dodge had pulled off the upset and beat out Mustang, but the following was just too great for Dodge to make a small dent in the Mustang sales. The Challenger was also in competition with the Barracuda.

There was a unique concept about the Challenger, you were able to choose from just about every engine in the Chrysler lineup to put in the Challenger. Dodge got it right and saw that it would need to compete against the more “luxury” branded cars such as Mercury Cougar.
