Don't be fooled by its four doors. Whether motivated by the 292-horsepower V-6 standard in the SE and SXT models, or the 370-horsepower Hemi V-8 in the R/T, the Charger looks every inch the muscle car that it is. Its brutish, chiseled exterior lines scream, "Get out of the way!"
A five-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission turns the rear wheels in the SE and R/T versions, while a more fuel efficient eight-speed, driver-shiftable automatic is standard in the SXT. Dodge also offers all-wheel drive.
Every Charger comes with a Uconnect system interface and color touchscreen. The SXT and R/T get more sophisticated versions with a larger touchscreen.
