2019 Dodge Charger: A Muscle Car Through and Through

With its available V8 engine, the 2019 Dodge Charger is a muscle car through and through. While the car company offers the sedan with a V6, buyers should consider springing for the higher-powered engine. Those who do will have access to 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque.

Car buyers who want an automobile like the Charger aren’t interested in it because they want a sensible vehicle that’s fuel efficient and technologically advanced. This is a car for drivers who want a vehicle based on exterior styling and power. Dodge is offering the Charger in colors like White Knuckle, TorRed, Plum Crazy and Go Mango.

The Charger features some practical elements. Its interior is roomy. It has four doors, and it comes with an abundance of standard and optional equipment that makes the vehicle a usable one for families. For the 2019 Charger, Dodge decided to make several upgrades. The SRT Hellcat features a new grille along with a few performance changes. The Hellcat comes with a new launch assist feature, after-run chiller and torque reserve. Buyers who select the SRT or R/T model will have a car with new styling as well as the option to add adaptive suspension dampers. This trim model comes with chassis and electronic upgrades that include a new performance suspension, recalibrated steering and a new rear axle ratio.

With the 2019 Dodge Charger, rear-wheel drive comes standard. Buyers can upgrade to all-wheel drive. Five main trim levels are available, which include the SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat. Dodge is offering the SXT and GT trims with a V6 engine that gets 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The V6 is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera and keyless entry. Dodge also equipped the vehicle with tech features like Bluetooth, a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay integration as well as Android Auto smartphone integration. The Charger comes with a six-speaker sound system and a 60/40-split folding back seat to give owners more cargo space.

The Charger handles well and manages tight corners with ease. A touch of the gas pedal will have the car flying down the road. Interior comfort makes it great for road trips, and it’s fun to drive around town. The Charger’s controls are nicely positioned, and with creature comforts like climate control and storage pockets, occupants will enjoy the ride.

Those who want a car that’s fast and practical will want to look closely at the Charger. Dodge’s changes to the sedan keep the vehicle fresh. The Charger has been a long-time favorite due to a design that combines a classic hot-rod with modern practicality.
