A Look At The Newly Released Dodge Charger

More than a decade into the Dodge current generation, the seemingly ageless Charger comes standard with a 292-hp V-6 and rear-wheel drive, with an all-wheel drive option should you need it.

The 2023 Dodge Charger is considered the calm version of the Dodge lineup. Scat Pack models get even more power, with a 6.4-liter, 485-hp V-8. The tire-killing supercharged Hellcat models get even wilder but are reviewed separately.

If the Charger drives like an old cop car, that’s because it is. While the world shifts to alternative energy, the Charger keeps on chugging along as a sedan version of the coupe-bodied, gasoline-fired Challenger.

Someday, cars like the Charger will go against all the rules, but for now this V-8-powered sedan remains loud and proud.

Engine & Performance

The Charger channels its NASCAR roots with big V-8 power and rowdy sounds. However, not every Charger has a mighty Hemi V-8 under the hood.

In contrast, the V-6 is subdued, but adds to the availability of all-wheel drive. Dodge doesn’t build a Charger with a manual gearbox, but it would be so much cooler if it did. The standard V-6 is no slouch, yet it lacks the giddy-up of front-drivers such as the Nissan Maxima.

The more powerful versions excel at the strip, where the 485-hp Charger R/T Scat Pack posted an impressive 3.8-second sprint to 60 mph. The 370-hp Charger has enough ponies to outrun most family sedans.

Although the V-6 version has a nearly identical cornering grip, the Daytona’s hefty horsepower advantage amplified the fun. The electrically assisted power steering contributes to the Charger’s purposeful control, but its feedback is too heavy and slow to be engaging.

Fuel Economy

The Charger is a big, heavy car with a healthy appetite for fuel. Although it has below-average EPA estimates in the city, it has fairly competitive highway ratings.

Surprisingly, both the V-6 and V-8 engines are within 1 mpg of each other, with the V-6 earning 26 mpg on the highway and the V-8 earning 25 mpg.

Interior

The Charger’s interior is highly functional yet the opposite of luxurious, with more rubberized materials than the set of an adult film. Apart from excellent rear-seat legroom, its passenger space is slightly below average.

The cabin’s simplistic design is classic muscle car, but options are plentiful. Although its trunk volume is similar to those of most rivals, the Charger was able to fit an extra carry-on box than its rivals.

It held 18 total with the rear seat stowed, beating the Maxima and the fastback-hatchback Kia Stinger by three. Its center console features plenty of spots for small items and a slot alongside the shifter that is perfect for storing your smartphone.

Safety & Driver-Assistance Features

 

The big Dodge sedan does offer a host of driver-assistance technology, including adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
