The Dodge Challenger is the name of three different generations and was marketed by the Dodge division of Chrysler. The Dodge Silver Challenger was first to be produced from 1958 to 1959 as a limited edition which inherited its name from the fact that they didn't use any other paint choice except silver. From 1969 to 1974, the first generation Dodge Challenger pony car was built using the Chrysler E Platform, sharing most of its major components with the Plymouth Barracuda. The second generation which was in production from 1978 to 1983, was a badge Mitsubishi Galant Lambda. The third, and current generation, was introduced in early 2008 as a rival to the competition, the fifth generation for both, the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.
