2018 Dodge Charger Review

The Dodge Charger earns a distinction that none of its segment competitors can claim: It’s the only true “muscle sedan” on the market. Sharing DNA and stylistic cues with its muscle car cousin, the Challenger, the Charger has an imposing posture and a performance to match. 

If you’re considering making this powerful, large car your next ride, you’ll want to know a little more about it—and that’s where we come in. At Rockwall CDJR, we want to give drivers across Rockwall, Terrell, Rowlett, and Wylie a closer look at the Charger. Read our 2018 Dodge Charger review and contact us to learn more!

2018 Charger: One Hell of a Performance

The 2018 Charger engine lineup starts with the 3.6L Pentastar® V6, which has up to 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque on tap. You’ll see the best fuel efficiency ratings in the lineup with this engine, an EPA-estimated 19 city, and 30 highway MPG. If you’re looking to turn heads on your daily drives, it’ll do just fine.

The rest are thirstier, performance-oriented V8 powerplants, designed to throw you back in your seat as you explode away from a stop. The most powerful of these is the supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8 that powers the SRT Hellcat trim. With a monstrous 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, you’ll be enjoying yourself—and hanging on for dear life!

Charger Exterior: Muscle Meets Modern  

The sleek exterior of the Dodge Charger is a study in contrasts, where retro style meets modern functions. An aggressive crosshair grille alludes to the car’s heritage, and yet it’s flanked by modern headlamps with available HID projector lamps and standard LED daytime running lights.

At the rear, the LED racetrack taillamp extends across the rear fascia and gives drivers behind you a retro-modern focal point as you leave them in the dust.

There’s quality sculpting all around, from side-door scallops, which make the car look fast even while standing still, to the double power bulge hood, which adds to the Charger’s muscular aesthetic.

Inside: The Muscle Sedan as Family Sedan

The 2018 Charger pulls double duty as a sporty performance ride and a practical family sedan, and this is most evident in the spacious cabin you’ll find inside. With legroom measuring 41.8 inches in the front row and 40.1 inches in the rear, passengers will find plenty of room wherever they choose to sit.

The trunk is also quite spacious and practical, with 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space and 60/40 split-folding rear seats for even more flexibility. In the trunk alone, you can fit up to a dozen grocery bags or plenty of luggage for a vacation or trip out of town.

Comfort and convenience technology also helps civilize this muscle sedan. Available heated and ventilated front seats can help you keep the car comfortable on cool mornings or sweltering Texas summer days. If you like, you can complement that function with available dual-zone climate control and get the precise temperature you (and your front passenger) are looking for.
