James FlammangJames Flammang, Contributing Editor -

Buying a Dodge Charger is one of the least-expensive ways to get rear-wheel drive performance with four doors, five seats, and a large trunk. Whether it’s the mainstream V6 version or one of the thunderous V8 models, all have ample space for people (or car seats); but the looks shout “muscle car.”

If you’re tempted by one of the more powerful variants, from rational R/T to over-the-top Hellcat, performance when pushing the pedal will live up to the Charger’s heritage, dating back to the Sixties.

What's New for 2016

Both the SRT 392 and the 707-horsepower Hellcat now are upholstered in Laguna leather, also adding Uconnect navigation and HD radio. Dodge also is expected to make more Hellcats available, due to surprising first-year popularity. Plum Crazy, a color choice first used for 1970 Charger, is a new option for 2016 models. A Super Track Pak with chassis upgrades goes into SXT models. The 8.4-inch touchscreen adds a drag-and-drop menu bar.

Choosing Your Dodge Charger

Like the comparable two-door Challenger coupe, Dodge offers the Charger sedan in a variety of engine and trim configurations.

  • Most buyers opt for an SE or SXT with a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 292 horsepower.
  • R/T models get a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that produces 370 horsepower.
  • A 485-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 goes into the R/T Scat Pack and SRT 392 models.
  • Going all the way, we have the fire-snorting Hellcat and its 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8.

All Chargers have a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.

SE

The base SE has the V6 engine and automatic transmission, along with 17-inch alloy wheels, power doors/windows/mirrors, power driver’s seat, 5-inch Uconnect touchscreen, six-speaker audio with CD player, Bluetooth, USB/aux inputs, steering-wheel audio/cruise controls, pushbutton start, dual-zone manual air conditioning, and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. Popular Equipment and Sport Appearance Groups are optional. All-wheel drive SE sedans roll on 19-inch wheels.

SXT

SXT steps up the feature content with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Uconnect access for 911 emergency calls, Alpine 276-watt audio, a satellite radio, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped thick-rim steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, foglamps, and 18-inch alloy wheels. All-wheel drive is optional, adding 19-inch wheels.

R/T

The R/T adds the 5.7-liter V8 engine and standard manual transmission, along with paddle shifters, larger brakes, 20-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, sport seats, and a specially-tuned performance suspension and exhaust note.

R/T Road & Track

Actually an option package, the tighter-tuned Road & Track version brings three selectable modes for the stability control, a 3.07 rear axle, heavy-duty brakes, and a track suspension, as well as HID headlights, heated/ventilated front seats, power-adjustable pedals, larger seat bolsters, rear park assist, Nappa leather/suede upholstery, and a heated steering wheel.

R/T Scat Pack

The Scat Pack brings a beefier 6.4-liter V8, along with more aggressive styling details, an aluminum hood with NADA duct, bigger active exhaust, 20 x 9-inch alloy wheels, Dodge Performance Pages, three-mode stability control, and a backup camera.

SRT 392

The full SRT version gets 15.4-inch front brakes, wider wheels, launch control, SRT-tuned adaptive damping, heated/ventilated front seats, and 20 x 9.5-inch wheels. Also standard are 19-speaker, 900-watt Harman Kardon audio and, for 2016, Laguna leather upholstery.

Hellcat

The SRT Hellcat unleashes a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 707 horsepower and a 1/4-mile acceleration time of 11 seconds. Hellcats get a performance hood with dual air extractors, special interior trim, two key fobs for full or restricted performance, blind-spot assist, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, SRT Performance Pages, and Slingshot forged aluminum wheels.

CarsDirect Tip

Logic and common sense suggests picking the fine V6 and its reasonably good efficiency. (All-wheel drive would be a bonus in snowbelt states.) But if you’re logically minded, a Charger probably isn't the car you're craving. Opting for an R/T gives you plenty of performance for a tolerable amount of cash. Or, maybe you’re ready to go all-in with one of the bigger V8s for acceleration (but not refinement) comparable to a BMW M5. For the purely irrational, we have the Hellcat.
