Dodge Challenger — TIMING CHAIN OR BELT?


| Home / Dodge / List of Dodge Challenger Models without Timing Belt

The Dodge Challenger is a sports car manufactured by the American marque Dodge. The first version of this vehicle dates back to 1969, and the model has three generations to date.

The first generation was produced from 1970 to 1974 and was a pony car built on the Chrysler E platform. It had coupe and convertible versions. It shared major components with the Plymouth Barracuda.

The second generation was produced from 1978 to 1983 and was a version of the Mitsubishi Galant Lambda, an economical compact coupe. The Plymouth brand also sold a rebadged variant called the Plymouth Sapporo. In other countries, the car was marketed as Mitsubishi Sapporo or Mitsubishi Scorpion. This Challenger was sold until 1983, when it was replaced by the Conquest.

In 2008, Dodge decided to bring this model back, thus starting the third generation. This new vehicle was a two-door coupe. Although it was larger, it shared many aesthetic elements with the original Challenger. This vehicle is based on a modified version of the LX platform, shared with the Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum and Chrysler 300.

Starting in 2021, following Dodge’s absortion into the Stellantis conglomerate, it was announced that the Charger and Challenger would cease production after 2023, as the group prefers to focus on electric vehicles.
