2020 Dodge Charger: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

In 2006, Dodge began its way back into the world of the muscle car with the reintroduction of the Dodge Charger and its V-8 muscle. Its return as a four-door puzzled some fans, but its two-door Challenger cousin’s arrival in 2008 put most traditionalists’ minds at ease. The Dodge Charger is long in the tooth, as its last redesign was way back in 2011, but the 2020 Dodge Charger may bring in a light refresh to keep things modern. Here’s what we could see.

We expect the bulk of the 2020 Dodge Charger’s looks to remain the same, but a refresh could usher in new front and rear fascias, new headlights and taillights, and a few updated appearances packages. This will keep the Charger up to date for a few years until it finally gets the redesign it needs.

Inside, the Dodge Charger has always been a beacon of simplicity with its black-centric theme and no-frills design approach. We expect this to remain the same in the 2020 Dodge Charger. Now, it’s not that the Dodge Charger is a stripped-out economy ride. It actually has a long list of advanced features and tech-heavy infotainment options, but its design appeals to the retro-loving muscle-car shoppers.

Under its hood, we expect everything to remain the same in the 2020 Dodge Charger. If this is the case, it will boast a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine with up to 300 horsepower. The next engine in line will be the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 370 hp, A 485-hp 6.4-liter HEMI V8 will top the non-supercharged lineup. Peak performance will come from the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine with 707 hp. All four engines will push their power through an eight-speed automatic transmission and out to the rear wheels as standard. The V6 engine will have available all-wheel drive.

The current Dodge Charger misses the mark in safety with a “Marginal” driver-side small-overlap crash test score and its lack of automatic emergency braking, so it doesn’t qualify for any of the IIHS Top Safety Pick awards. With no big changes on the horizon, we expect the 2020 Dodge Charger to carry on with the same features and ratings.

Pricing & Release Date

With no big changes coming, we expect the 2020 Dodge Charger’s pricing to remain close to the current model’s MSRP range of $30,715 to $68,740 (destination fees included). We expect production to kick off in November 2019.

The 2020 Dodge Charger will compete with the Buick LaCrosse, Chrysler 300, and Nissan Maxima.
