Overview

What's New

The 2022 Dodge Charger rolls into another year virtually unchanged. The current Charger debuted back in 2011 and received its last significant refresh in 2015.

Choosing your Dodge Charger

The Charger comes in five trim levels: SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat. Pricing starts at $32,945 with destination and climbs to $76,045 (including a $2,100 gas guzzler tax) for the SRT Hellcat.

Engine Choices

The Charger engine roster runs the gamut from a workaday V6 to an astonishingly powerful supercharged V8.

Rear-wheel drive is standard on all trims. All-wheel drive is available on the V6-powered SXT ($3,995) and GT ($3,095) only. Every model carries an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Charger is one of the few full-size sedans left on the market. Needless to say, five can fit comfortably. The trunk holds 16.5 cubic feet, which is typical for this class.

Safety Features

Aside from the standard rear parking sensors, driver assistance technology is optional on the Charger.

Blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert is available in the Driver Convenience Group ($1,390 to $1,480) and Plus Group ($2,095 to $3,095) for non-SRT models. This feature is standard on the SRT Hellcat.

The Technology Group ($1,895) adds adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams and wipers, and front collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking. These items aren't available on the track-focused SRT Chargers.

A sign of the Charger's age, neither surround-view cameras nor a head-up display are available.

Connectivity

The Charger's standard infotainment system includes a seven-inch touchscreen, six speakers, satellite radio, two USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

The Plus Group for the SXT adds an 8.4-inch touchscreen, HD radio, six Alpine speakers, and wi-fi capability. These features are standard starting with the GT. Navigation is a $995 standalone option on all trims.

A nine-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system is available on the GT and above for $1,095 to $1,995, depending on the trim. Wireless device charging is not yet available on the Charger.

2022 Dodge Charger SXT – From $32,945

The Charger starts off with an eight-way power driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start, proximity key access, and 17-inch aluminum wheels.

In addition to its safety and connectivity upgrades, the Plus Group ($3,095) adds Nappa leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power passenger seat, a heated power-adjustable steering wheel, driver memory settings, an auto-dimming rearview, heated side mirrors with reverse tilt, LED interior lighting, and more. On the performance side, the Plus Group contains a sport-tuned suspension, 20-inch wheels, and a rear spoiler.

With the Plus Group selected, the Driver Convenience Group drops to $980 and adds HID headlights, LED fog lights, and a universal home remote. The heated seats, steering wheel, and mirrors are available separately in the Cold Weather Group for $695. A single-panel sunroof costs $1,295.

2022 Dodge Charger GT – From $35,220

The GT retains the V6 but wears a performance hood and aerodynamic fascias for a muscular look. The sport-tuned suspension and 20-inch wheels are standard, along with paddle shifters and houndstooth cloth sport seats.

The Performance and Handling Group ($1,595) for the GT delivers even firmer suspension tuning, Brembo brakes, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and black wheels and brake calipers.

2022 Dodge Charger R/T – From $40,945

The R/T moves further into performance territory with the 5.7-liter V8 and an electronically tuned exhaust system. Two additional option packages become available.

The Daytona Edition Group ($3,995) features a cold air intake system and special trim and badging throughout, plus nearly everything the Plus Group. The Carbon Suede Interior Package ($1,595) adds carbon-fiber interior trim and a suede headliner.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack – From $45,270

The Scat Pack gets a major power boost from the 6.4-liter V8, along with a high-performance suspension, standard Brembo brakes, launch control, a limited-slip differential, and special Sport and Track driving modes. The heated seats and steering wheel are also standard.

The Dynamics Package ($2,395) endows the Scat Pack with six-piston front Brembo brakes, a flat-bottom leather steering wheel, and black brake calipers. The package is standard on the Wide Body variant ($5,569), which carries two-inch wider wheels and an adaptive suspension with ride stiffness settings.

2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – From $76,045

The Hellcat gains the 717-hp supercharged V8 and the Wide Body performance upgrades as standard. Other features include forged aluminum wheels, hood heat extractors, and an available Laguna leather interior with Alcantara trim ($995).

The Hellcat Redeye submodel ($84,740) packs the 797-hp surcharged V8, which propels it from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds. Exclusive to the Redeye is a Power Chiller that helps cool the engine after racing using the air conditioner's refrigerant.

CarsDirect Tip

If your primary concern isn't performance, the GT is worth a serious look. It's quick, attractive, and surprisingly efficient. In the performance realm, the Scat Pack is the best bargain for everyday driving. The SRT Hellcat is a specialty ride that needs a track to be appreciated.

Classic power. The Dodge Charger is a throwback to the muscle car heyday in more ways than its name. Even though the base V6 engine offers more than sufficient power, there are three V8s to choose from based on power and price.

V8s kick-off with the R/T and its 375-horsepower, 5.7-liter engine, which would be plenty powerful in a sedan of this size. But the Scat Pack goes with a 6.4-liter V8 and 475 horsepower before the Hellcat models finish the line with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 and either 707 horsepower or 797 horsepower.

And all-wheel drive is also available, though only with the V6. Still, AWD is a relatively rare option on sedans not from premium brands such as Audi or Mercedes-Benz and might sway people who live in areas with inclement climates who would otherwise only consider a crossover or SUV.

Old-fashioned value. And that much power usually comes on far more expensive cars. But at around $33,000 to start, the Charger doesn't cost much more than the typical midsize sedan. Springing for a V8 version can cost just under $40,000, too.

And for that, there is a lot of car. Every Charger comes with alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, the intuitive U Connect infotainment system, and other niceties. More upscale models can be equipped with leather upholstery, including high-grade Nappa leather, an Alpine audio system, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Many of the options across nearly all trim levels include an array of optional wheel designs, exterior sticker packages, and a long list of paint choices. Unlike many cars today, it's relatively easy to personalize a Charger for the customer.

Dated design. Make no mistake, however, that the Charger is a throwback to an earlier age — the early 2010s, in fact. Lots of updates have tried to bring the interior technology up-to-date and the exterior designs haven't been untouched, but the Charger doesn't include many driver assistance features found in far less expensive vehicles and are quickly becoming the norm for new cars.

But the Charger's age shows in its interior space. While four adults will easily be comfortable, five could be squeezed because of the rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive layout, and trunk space could be better. Some of the interior materials could be better, too, considering the price of some of the more expensive versions.

The Dodge Charger also misses out on the top crash test scores that newer sedans are achieving. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Charger a Marginal score in its small-overlap frontal crash test, one rating from the lowest. None of the headlight options passed its evaluations, either.

Fears a fuel crisis. No performance car is truly efficient and that's the case with the Charger. Even the most efficient V6 model gets 23 mpg combined based on EPA testing, while a similarly powerful Toyota Camry V6 does 3 mpg better. None of the V8s top 19 mpg combined, either, which sounds more like a V8-powered SUV.

The most powerful Hellcat versions get just 15 mpg combined, which is well into exotic sports car territory. And even some other high-performance sedans are better, such as the 17 mpg BMW M5 or 21 mpg Audi RS-5 Sportback. They may be more expensive than any Charger, but they prove that highly-powered sedans that were recently designed don't have to be huge gas guzzlers.

None of this might matter to the Charger's performance audience, but those looking for sedans with space for four or five people have other choices that are more efficient and similarly powerful. It could be even more of a consideration during times of record-high gas prices. Dodge has already announced an electric vehicle with the Charger's performance will arrive in the next couple of years, so the Charger's days are numbered.

Final thoughts. The Dodge Charger is a leader among full-size sedans partly because its competitors — Chevrolet Impala, Ford Taurus, and, soon, Toyota Avalon — have disappeared around it. It's also for fans who crave performance but don't have a Porsche budget. But those still looking for a large sedan should look at how spacious some midsize models are before settling for the Dodge.
