Younger drivers pay much more for Challenger insurance

We collected sample quotes for younger drivers between the ages of 17 and 24. Teen drivers can expect to pay a lot more for Challenger sports car insurance coverage than older drivers. Seventeen-year-olds pay the most by far — $13,109 per year for coverage, or about four times more than a typical 30-year-old would.

For the most part, younger drivers will likely find the best rates for Challenger insurance from our overall cheapest pick, State Farm, or USAA, which is not available to all drivers.

One way for younger drivers to save on insurance is to share a plan with an older family member. Whether it's a parent or someone else you live with, sharing a policy typically results in much cheaper prices for coverage.

More powerful Challenger models cost more to insure

The Dodge Challenger is available in several trim levels, and, unsurprisingly, the more expensive models generally cost more to insure. Besides simply having a higher price, premium Challenger models also have additional horsepower and torque, which often lead to higher insurance costs. For example, the 2022 Challenger SRT Hellcat has 717 horsepower and a top speed of 203 MPH. By comparison, the R/T has 372 horsepower, and the standard SXT has 303 horsepower.

Model/trim level
Average six-month Insurance cost
MSRP
SXT$3,238$31,275
R/T$3,397$38,825
SRT Hellcat$4,683$64,743
SRT Demon$5,314$84,995

MSRP is the starting price for a 2022 model, except for the Demon, which was most recently available for purchase in the 2020 model year.

Compare Rates

Dodge's nomenclature for different models of Challengers has changed over time. Prior to 2015, the high-performance model SRT was known as the SRT8. After 2015, the model was renamed the SRT Hellcat. Additionally, the SXT base model was called the SE in the U.S. prior to 2012.

Dodge Demon: a limited-edition car with high-priced coverage

In 2018, Dodge released an ultra-powerful, special edition of the Challenger called the Dodge Demon. The car's starting price was $83,295 — nearly triple that of the base Challenger model — and they now regularly sell for more than six figures. Car insurance for the Dodge Demon is $5,314 per year, which is 64% more expensive than insurance for a Challenger SXT.

New Dodge Demons are no longer available for purchase. Drivers looking for a Demon will have to turn to the used market, where Demons typically sell for well above the MSRP.

Cost of Challenger insurance by model year

The cost of car insurance for a Dodge Challenger drops the older the vehicle is. A 2012 base model costs 35% less than a 2022 model.

Car Model Year
Average Cost
2022$3,238
2021$3,137
2020$2,930
2019$2,883
2018$2,859
2017$2,773
2016$2,506
2015$2,486
2014$2,350
2013$2,216
2012$2,102

It's not always cheaper to insure used cars. While the cost to repair an older car may go down as parts get cheaper, newer cars often come with more advanced safety features that can lower rates significantly. It's worth noting, though, that every Dodge Challenger analyzed received a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the highest score available.
