Re: Difference between Challenger & Charger?
There's similarities, but the center stack, center stack controls and IP cowl are different shapes.
Center consoles have different shape and is canted toward driver on Challenger, Charger version is flatter, more level.
Seats have a slight change in style and bolsters compared to Charger.
Interior door trim has revisions from the Charger version.
Steering wheel is the same design.
The mechanicals: engine, automatic transmission, front suspension, rear suspension are the same. Slightly different power ratings on 5.7 V8 though. I believe the automatic in Challenger has different ratios in 1st (and 2nd?) to give it better acceleration.
Challenger gets different spring rates, shock rates, (don't know if sway bars are different, although the 6cyl Challenger gets rear sway bar, while the 300, Charger, Magnum didn't).
