Amazingly, it's been almost 10 years since Dodge first introduced the retro-styled Challenger, and heading into the 2019 model year, the vehicle doesn't look terribly different than it did back then.

Dodge has now announced the official starting prices for all the 2019 Challenger cars. That'll bring the price up to $30,295.

The widebody kit looks so freakin' mean.

New for 2019, the GT and R/T models both benefit from the SRT-inspired body design on the outside with some performance-minded improvements on the inside such as the sport bucket seats and an "enhanced" steering wheel. The asterisk: the Redeye needs the same $1,345 destination charge and $1,700 gas guzzler tax as the 2018 Demon, so the difference still holds once you get the Redeye off the dealer lot. Its 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8 has been reworked to produce 717 horsepower (+10) and 656 lb-ft of torque (+6). The brutish Challenger SRT Hellcat will start at $58,650 plus a $1,700 gas guzzler tax on all models; that is a $5,000 price cut from a year ago. Then there was the dragstrip-honed Demon that was introduced previous year in limited numbers-and Dodge is continuing the fun in 2019.

Also available will be a satin black-finished boot lid spoiler, and a widebody package that adds 44mm on each side to the width of the vehicle, making room for 20 inch forged-alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P-Zero gumballs. The current Hellcat Challenger and Charger without Torque Reserve launches with next to no boost, but with Torque Reserve, drivers can leave the line with almost four pounds of boost pressure - leading to far more initial power and quicker track times. That slightly demonic SRT Hellcat Redeye will start at $69,650 with a $1,700 gas guzzler tax.
