About Dodge Charger
When you are looking for a large and affordable car, the name Dodge Charger is sure to pop up on your list. Created by the Dodge division of Chrysler, this car has been a popular name in the era of muscle cars.
In the 60’s it was distinguished by its two-door muscle car persona. But, over the years it has transformed into a good performance sedan that comes with a fair price tag.
The present version of the car is created on the Chrysler LX platform and was designed to be reminiscent of the original Chargers from 1960s and 1970s.
The car is available with V6 and V8 engines as well as 6 speed manual and 8 speed automatic transmissions. In addition, it is also available with AWD system for those that like the extra grip in all weather conditions.
The Muscle Car for The Family
Muscle cars by nature are epitome of brute strength and power, and not really too high on the space and comfort level. Dodge Charger is indeed a big car. And it has almost all the characteristics of muscle cars. Yet, it poses as the comfortable family sedan.
You get an option of either a V8 or V6 engine, both of which are known for their power. This big sports sedan gives a fuel economy of around 19 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, depending on the model.
The V8 version of the car covers 0 to 60 mph distance in as little as 4.1 seconds and quarter mile at 12.4 seconds. But the Hellcat version enhances that 0 to 60 time to only 3.4 seconds and quarter mile at just 11.4 seconds.
Even though it is a fast car, it must be noted that Dodge Charger was not made with speed in mind. This creation of Chrysler was made more on the thoughts of fuel economy. When you are running at 70 mph, you will find the engine turning at only 1500 RPM. This leads to a great highway fuel economy and hence this car is a perfectly affordable and practical car for a family.
A Legend in Itself
As stated before, the Dodge Charger is one of the most popular creations of Chrysler. Since most affordable sedans are front-wheel drive only, the rear-wheel drive sets the Charger apart from the rest.
The latest model of this car comes with a bundle of technological goodies. You get the Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system along with Bluetooth, Sirius satellite radio, heated leather seats both in front and rear, an anti-roll bar in the rear, an audio system, and much more. You can also add additional features such as the sunroof as well.
Overall, this particular car is a delight for everyone to drive.
There is a slight power niggle when it comes to transmission calibration as well as power delivery. If that had not been there then this car would have been perfect. Dodge Charger is still a very good choice for a car, when it comes to the muscle car sedans.
