1978-1984

Beginning in 1978 ó the year the U.S. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard took effect ó Dodge offered a new Challenger two-door coupe imported from Mitsubishi. It was offered with a standard 1.6-liter, 77-horsepower I-4 engine, with a 2.6-liter, 105-horsepower four-cylinder as an option. Slightly restyled in 1981, the Dodge Challenger soldiered on until 1984, replaced by the growing stable of Chrysler Corporationís K-platform compacts and a new import from Mitsubishi, the Dodge/Plymouth Conquest. Over its six-year run, sales of the imported Dodge Challenger averaged between 12,000 and 14,000 units per year.
