A Look At The Newly Released Dodge Charger

The current generation of the Dodge Charger has been around for more than ten years, and despite appearing timeless, it has a 292-hp V-6 and rear-wheel drive as standard, with the option of all-wheel drive if necessary.

The mellowest model in the Dodge lineup is the 2023 Dodge Charger. With a 6.4-liter, 485-horsepower V-8, Scat Pack models gain even more power. The tire-eating supercharged Hellcat models get even crazier, but they are reviewed separately.

The Charger does, in fact, drive like an old police car. The Charger stays operational as a sedan version of the coupe-bodied, gasoline-powered Challenger even as the rest of the world switches to alternative energy sources.

In the future, vehicles like the Charger will defy all conventions, but in the present, this V-8-powered sedan is loud and brash.

Engine and Performance

The Charger’s loud V-8 power and raucous sounds are reminiscent of NASCAR. But not every Charger is equipped with a powerful Hemi V-8 engine.

The V-6, in contrast, is understated but increases the availability of all-wheel drive. It would be so much cooler if Dodge built a Charger with a manual gearbox, but they don’t. Despite not being a weakling, the standard V-6 lacks the giddy-up of front-drive vehicles like the Nissan Maxima.

The more powerful variations perform better on the strip, where the 485-horsepower Charger R/T Scat Pack recorded an impressive 3.8-second sprint to 60 mph. The 370-hp Charger has more power than most family sedans, making it faster.

The Daytona’s significant horse power advantage increased the fun even though the V-6 model’s cornering grip is nearly identical. Although the Charger’s power steering is electrically assisted, the feedback is too slow and heavy to be interesting.

Fuel Economy

The Charger is a large, heavy vehicle with an insatiable appetite for fuel. Although it has below-average EPA estimates in the city, it has fairly competitive highway ratings.

Surprisingly, the highway gas mileage of the V-6 and V-8 engines is only 1 mpg apart, with the V-6 achieving 26 mpg and the V-8 obtaining 25 mpg.


The interior of the Charger is extremely functional but far from luxurious, with more rubberized materials than the set of an adult movie. The passenger space is slightly below average, despite the excellent rear seat legroom.

Although the interior is simple in design, it is a classic muscle car. The Charger was able to fit an additional carry-on box than its rivals, despite the fact that its trunk volume is comparable to that of the majority of its rivals.

With the rear seat folded, it had a total capacity of 18, three more than the Maxima and the fastback-hatchback Kia Stinger. Its center console has many compartments for small items and a slot next to the shifter that is ideal for holding your smartphone.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The big Dodge sedan does come loaded with several driver-assistance functions, such as 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!
