Mid-size Sport: Dodge Challenger

A big win for the Chrysler Group, the Challenger beat the long-time favorite Ford Mustang as well as the Mitsubishi Eclipse in this category. In fact, it was the only car in its category to score above average.

The Challenger scored well for its interior as well for its performance. The fact that the Challenger is an all-new model also helps, said J.D. Power's David Sargent. New models, particularly ones that attract a lot of attention, tend to do well in this survey.

At the time this survey was done, the Chevrolet Camaro had not yet been released, so we'll have to wait until next year to see if the Challenger can hold on to its title.
