Affordable High Performance Vehicles at NowCar

Written By, Jordan R.

Ever think about buying a car online? Will the price be as good as the manufacturer’s website? Will it cost more to get what you’re looking for? E-commerce sites need to make money too, right? When shopping for a car online at NowCar, consumers get the best price possible, always lower than the MSRP, and don’t have to deal with a pesky delivery fee. Inventory isn’t limited to small-time cars either; here’s two high performance vehicles for under $35k.

2018 Dodge Challenger R/T

First up is the 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T. For those that don’t know, “R/T” stands for “Road/Track”. No “and”, just “R”-“T”. Back in the 1960s, when Dodge designed and developed the first Challenger R/T trim, there were a couple of changes made to it to set it apart from other Challenger trims. There was of course a change in the powertrain, putting under the hood the most powerful engine under the Dodge name at the time - a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine (now with VVT).

That acronym in parentheses is actually a very important piece that makes up the 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T powertrain today. “VVT” stands for “variable valve timing” technology, and is a process designed to alter the frequency of an engine cylinder’s valve lift event when intaking air and fuel or exhausting the resulting fumes. By increasing the frequency, one can optimize an engine’s horsepower and fuel efficiency. Taking this into account, the 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T can generate 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, and has an acceleration time of 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds. R/T trims also came with some new upgrades, such as an upgraded suspension, tires, and brakes, and all R/T trims wore an R/T badge.

2018 Dodge Challenger R/T MSRP starting at $33,495, but we have it on NowCar for $30,871.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS

The Chevrolet Camaro comes in two body styles that can greatly increase its price, even if it’s the same trim. We thought it best to point this out, because although we have a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe with 1SS under $35k, we don’t have a convertible for less than $40k. There’s also 2SS trims, but they also go for a pretty penny. Now that you know what we’re talking about, let’s look over the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS.

Fourth in the lineup, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS as a coupe is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine with direct injection and VVT. That’s a total of 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque that this engine can generate. We’ve already covered variable valve timing, but direct injection is another helpful process when designing an engine. Direct injection, also known as “gasoline direct injection” or “GDI”, is the delivery of highly pressurized fuel directly into an engine’s combustion chamber via its fuel line. This variation of fuel delivery can greatly increase an engine’s output, as seen clearly with the Camaro 1SS.

Like the 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro with 1SS comes with upgraded performance suspension, but can opt-in for “performance-tuned” suspension that places a larger focus on the dampers, springs, and stabilizers. Brembo front and rear performance brakes make up the braking system with 4-wheel antilock brakes to reduce lock up and Brembo 4-piston front and 4-piston rear fixed calipers for even the harshest break.

The starting MSRP for the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe with 1SS is $37,995, but we have it on NowCar for $33,672.
