Introduced in late 1969 for the 1970 model year, the Challenger was seen as Dodge's answer to the Mustang and Camaro. It was one of two Chrysler E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth Barracuda. The Challenger and Barracuda were available in a staggering number of trim and option levels and were intended to compete against the aforementioned muscle cars, and to do it while offering virtually every engine in Chrysler's inventory.
