How much does Dodge Challenger insurance cost?
Insurance on a 2023 Dodge Challenger costs an average of $2,730 per year. Average cost per month is $228, but ranges from $197 to $248, depending on the trim level being insured.
The insurance cost difference between the cheapest (SXT) and most expensive (SRT Super Stock) Challenger models is significant, primarily due to the considerable difference in purchase prices. But driver age is another factor that has a major impact on insurance prices.
The next table gives an overview of average 2023 Dodge Challenger insurance rates for different driver ages. It also breaks out details for both the cheapest and most expensive Challenger models to insure.
|2023 Dodge Challenger|
|Average Insurance Cost Per Year||$2,730|
|Insurance Cost Per Month||$228|
|Vehicle Segment||Sports Car|
|Segment Insurance Cost Rank||21st out of 26 Models|
|Cheapest Model to Insure||SXT|
|Challenger SXT MSRP||$32,140|
|Challenger SXT Insurance Cost||$2,364|
|Most Expensive Model to Insure||SRT Super Stock|
|Challenger SRT Super Stock MSRP||$90,340|
|Challenger SRT Super Stock Insurance Cost||$2,970|
The physical damage deductibles you choose for comprehensive and collision coverage also affect the cost of car insurance.
Higher deductibles will make an insurance policy cheaper because you are assuming more risk (and out-of-pocket expense) if you have a covered claim.
Conversely, a low deductible makes an insurance policy more expensive, because the insurance company will have to cover more of the claim expense.
The chart below illustrates how Dodge Challenger insurance cost varies based on different physical damage coverage deductible amounts. The costs shown are per year, and vary from a low of $2,082 per year for a 60-year-old driver with $1,000 physical damage deductibles to the highest price of $6,292 each year for a 20-year-old driver with a $250 policy deductible.
|Driver Age||Deductible||Annual Cost||Monthly Cost|
The two important takeaways from this chart are:
- Younger drivers have more expensive car insurance rates. A 20-year-old driver will pay much higher car insurance rates on a Dodge Challenger than older age groups. Teenage drivers are the most expensive age group to insure, with average rates for both 16 and 18-year-olds shown in the previous table at $9,920 and $8,626 per year, respectively.
- Higher policy deductibles make car insurance cheaper. As discussed earlier, the more money you are willing to pay out-of-pocket if you have a claim, the cheaper your Challenger insurance will be.

Lower than average cost Higher than average cost
The Challenger has more expensive insurance rates across the board than the average vehicle, especially for liability and medical coverages.
Higher liability insurance rates are primarily due to a more frequent or severe level of bodily injury liability or property damage claims. Higher medical and PIP coverage rates are due to a higher frequency or severity of passenger injuries.

The following table details the average full coverage insurance prices for a Dodge Challenger for the 2013 through 2023 model years.
|Model Year and Vehicle||Annual Rate||6-month Rate||Monthly Rate|
|2023 Dodge Challenger||$2,730||$1,365||$228|

Insuring a teenage driver
Average car insurance rates for teenagers on a 2023 Dodge Challenger range from a low of $6,926 for a 19-year-old female driver to a high of $9,920 for a 16-year-old male driver. Insuring a teen driver on an older model year Challenger will be cheaper, but the cost is still high.
The chart below shows the cost of insuring male and female drivers from ages 16 through 19 on a 2014 Dodge Challenger with full coverage and $500 physical damage deductibles.
|Gender||Driver Age 16||Age 17||Age 18||Age 19|
Insuring a teenager with liability-only insurance is a good way to keep costs down, but even a 2008 Dodge Challenger still has a market value ranging from about $9,000 to $15,000, depending on the condition. In the case of a total loss from an accident, hail, flood, or fire, that is quite a bit of vehicle value to just write off since the loss would not be covered by a policy with only liability insurance.
Another option to reduce the cost of insurance for teens is to raise the physical damage deductibles as high as the policy will allow, or at least to a level you can financially afford to pay in case of a loss. Higher deductibles mean the policyholder is willing to shoulder more of the loss financially, so the result is a cheaper rate.
Best insurance for a Dodge Challenger
The best insurance for a Dodge Challenger is the policy that both protects your vehicle (comprehensive and collision coverages) and also sufficiently protects your assets (liability coverage).
Any car insurance company can provide all of those coverages, but there are many differences in how each company handles claims, services your policy, or rewards you for being a safe driver.
If you want to have a local insurance agent, then not every company will qualify. Some companies primarily focus on selling car insurance via their website or app, so if a local agent is a top priority, you can rule out a lot of companies.
The size of your community is also a factor, as smaller communities often do not have agents available for many companies. Often, an independent agent may be your only choice in a smaller community or even one in a neighboring town.
