2018 Dodge Charger Review

Walking a fine line between a practical sedan and a retro muscle car, the 2018 Dodge Charger offers plenty of versatility, styling, performance and comfortable design to appeal to all tastes and interests.

Drivers in St. Louis, Chesterfield and Kirkwood, Missouri can learn more about what the Dodge Charger has to offer with our in-depth model review.

2018 Dodge Charger Performance

The base engine for the 2018 Charger is a 3.6-liter V-6 that produces 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. With the Rallye Group add-on, those numbers jump up to 300 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic.

The 5.7-liter V-8 provides the power that markets a Charger, producing 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque with plenty of rumble. There's also a 6.4-liter V-8, which produces 485 horsepower, available with the R/T Scat Pack and the SRT 392.

For true performance, there's the unmatched SRT Hellcat. Equipped with the same supercharged V-8 found in the Challenger Hellcat, the SRT Hellcat can hit 707 horsepower, 204 miles-per-hour and a 3.7-second 0-60 mph run time.

At the lower levels, the Charger performs well, with agile handling and quick acceleration. At the high-performance levels, however, Brembo six-piston front brakes, a drive-mode system, throttle uptake, damper settings and heavy steering feel are added for a truly sporty ride and vintage muscle sensibility.
