Overall, the Dodge Challenger gives you the more powerful engine options.
It is also important to look at the size of these two vehicles. The Dodge Challenger is the larger car. It is about 10 inches longer and 5 inches taller than the Camaro. This means that the Camaro can be a little bit lighter and more responsive, but the Challenger has more interior space for passengers.
Interior and Features
As mentioned above, the Challenger is the larger vehicle. This becomes important on the inside because it has more room for passengers. The Camaro has seating for just four people, but the Challenger has a more spacious backseat and seating for five people.
When it comes to interior features, both of these vehicles offer you some nice interior technology. They both offer you user-friendly infotainment systems. You also get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility with both of these vehicles, which is a great way to stay connected to your smartphone and your technology.
