The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro vs 2019 Dodge Challenger matchup is a competitive showdown that started back when muscle cars were all the rage, and everyone was vying to have their vehicle crowned the best in class, style, power, and speed.
The latest confrontation is essentially the same, but both vehicles come prepared with new features and advantages that take this battle to new heights.
The 2019 Dodge Challenger pays respect, more so than ever, to its historical lineage. With a build that evokes thoughts of sheer power, nostalgia immediately sets in. The Challenger is available in five trim levels, that can be configured seven ways. Complementing the Challenger’s build is a bold palette of exterior paint colors, including Indigo Blue, Maximum Steel, TorRed and Yellow Jacket. The Challenger comes with an array of standard and available technological and safety features, including a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, media hub, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and Hill Start Assist.
The MSRP for the Dodge Challenger XRT, the base trim, is $27,295.
The 2019 Chevy Camaro will not be outdone. The new Camaro is also designed to honor its muscle-car heritage. The new Camaro continues the sleek, muscular design it has been known for since it was reintroduced to the automotive market. It is available in seven trim levels that can be configured to create 13 different vehicle options. Like a secret weapon, in those configurations, Chevy offers a convertible. Similar to the Challenger’s exterior paint color, the Camaro is customizable with an assortment of available colors, including Crush, Riverside Blue Metallic, Red Hot and Mosaic Black Metallic. In comparison to the Challenger’s technological and safety features, the Camaro continues its competitiveness.
Standard and available features include Battery Rundown protection, StabiliTrak, the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system and a six-speaker audio system.
The MSRP for the 2019 Chevy Camaro LS, the base trim, is $25,000.
The 2019 Chevy Camaro vs 2019 Dodge Challenger matchup is grueling, but a winner must be crowned. Let’s delve more into what defines and separates these two modern versions of old-school muscle cars.
Electronic Stability Control automatically adjusts brake pressure and, when necessary, adjusts engine torque, to assist the driver in maintaining the vehicle’s forward-moving path.
Electronic Roll Mitigation uses the Electronic Stability Control system to detect tire lift resulting from defensive driving and assists the driver in retaining control of the vehicle to avoid a potential accident.
Hill Start Assist is designed to prevent the vehicle from rolling back when the driver is starting from a hilltop position. Even after the driver releases the brake, the car automatically maintains the braking position to ensure the driver safely transitions from braking to forward acceleration when driving uphill.
On a continual basis, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System checks the tire pressure in all four tires. That information is conveyed to the driver via the instrument display. The driver is able to monitor this information, identifying any concerns, addressing them and, hopefully, avoiding potential safety risks.
The Dodge Challenger airbag system primarily consists of advanced multi-stage frontal airbags. However, supplemental front-seat-mounted side airbags and supplemental side-curtain front and rear airbags are also included.
StabiliTrak is an electronic stabilizing system with built-in traction control. During emergency situations, the system makes braking, as well as engine, adjustments, if needed, to enhance the driver’s ability to maintain control. The traction-control component detects defensive driving and automatically detects wheel-slippage issues in wet and/or snowy conditions and makes necessary adjustments to the brakes and engine power to maintain traction.Driver Selector Mode is comprised of four standard driving modes, depending on your vehicle specs: Tour, Sport, Snow/Ice and Track.
Have you ever left your vehicle’s interior light on for an extended period of time? If so, you likely ended up needing to get a jump start with a dead battery. With the new Camaro, you won’t have to worry about the aforementioned scenario. Battery rundown protection detects when the interior light has been left on and automatically turns it off to conserve the life of your car battery.
OnStar and Chevrolet Connected Services capability gives drivers access to a variety of services and information. OnStar offers services ranging from connecting drivers to emergency services during an accident or medical emergency, even if the driver is unable to communicate, to providing turn-by-turn navigation. Chevrolet Connected Services provides a suite of services that includes Vehicle Diagnostics, Chevrolet Marketplace, Chevrolet Smart Driver and the myChevrolet mobile app. Vehicle Diagnostics generates a monthly diagnostic email, as well as alerts, to notify the driver regarding maintenance scheduling and diagnostic concerns. Chevrolet Marketplace provides drivers with information and offers for shopping, entertainment, and restaurants. Chevrolet Smart Driver provides insight to improve driving skills, a program that also may generate insurance discounts. The myChevrolet mobile app provides drivers with information pertinent to their Chevy vehicle, such as the owner’s manual, their preferred dealership and recall information.
The Camaro’s airbag system consists of airbags placed in vital positions around front-seat and back-seat passengers. Those strategic positions, depending on the seating position, are frontal, knee, seat-mounted and head-curtain. The Camaro’s front-seat passenger also has the added security of the Passenger Sensing System. This system automatically switches the frontal and knee bags on and off when it’s deemed necessary, protecting the passenger from any situation that may result in imminent harm.
The UConnect with 7.0-inch touchscreen display provides drivers with convenient access to music selections, entertainment options, and navigational information.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability allow drivers to access their compatible smartphone features on the vehicle’s touchscreen display.
USB host flip connects compatible smartphones to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Integrated Voice Command with Bluetooth provides hands-free access for drivers to access their compatible smartphone capabilities, such as making and receiving calls and accessing music playlists.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allows drivers convenient and hands-free access to their smartphone functions via the Infotainment display.
Bluetooth audio streaming capabilities for two compatible smartphones conveniently allows drivers to stream audio files through the vehicle’s sound system.
Voice command pass-through to compatible smartphones allows drivers to access compatible smartphone capabilities simply by speaking commands.
The SXT trim is the base level, while the SRT Hellcat is the most feature-loaded premium level.
