All About the Dodge Charger

Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge Ram near Kirkwood

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.
