We are huge fans of the Dodge Charger that is currently available at All Star Dodge Ram near Kirkwood. While we don’t expect a lot of changes for the 2018 model year, there still might be a few changes coming, we want to take a closer look at the Dodge Charger today.
The Dodge Charger (as a 2017 model) offers a number of engines including a 292-300-hp 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V-6 with 260-264 lb-ft of torque as a base model. Above that is a 370-hp 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V-8 with 395 lb-ft of torque. When 370 hp isn’t enough, go for the Charger SRT model that gets a 6.4-liter naturally aspirated V-8 with 485 hp and 475 lb-ft. Serving as a halo car enhancing the image of the entire lineup is the Charger SRT Hellcat model, which boasts an incredible 707 hp and 650 lb-ft from a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8.
The Dodge Charger might be refreshed for the 2019 model year, and a few years after that, a full redesign is possible. A redesigned Charger might be as much as 500 pounds lighter and even offer a turbo-four. “For those skeptical of a turbo-four-powered sedan like the Charger, keep in mind that many sedans and two-doors with turbo-fours have respectable 0-60 times, including the Audi A4 (5.3 seconds with all-wheel drive and an automatic), Chevrolet Camaro (5.2 seconds with a manual transmission), and Ford Mustang (6.3 seconds with a manual transmission).”-motortrend.com
We expect the 2018 Dodge Charger will mostly be a carryover model with few changes, except potentially for a special-edition model or two. In the next couple years, the Charger will likely receive another styling refresh to keep the model updated before a completely new model arrives years from now.
