Model Preview

The Dodge Charger last arrived as a fully-redesigned model in 2011 and has been a staple in the automaker’s lineup. Despite entering its 12th model year on sale without a major redesign, the 2022 Dodge Charger is expected to be a carryover model.

When the Charger arrived in 2011, it appeared on the scene with classic touches that were plucked straight from the old model. The sharp headlights, massive lower air intake, and enormous hood scoop give the Charger an imposing look that other sedans can’t match. The rear end of the current Charger features a chiseled rear bumper, a special “racetrack” taillight layout, and large exhaust outlets. As a carryover model, the 2022 Dodge Charger will retain the same exterior design as the current sedan.

On top of a 7-inch touchscreen, the current Charger comes with four USB ports, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio. An 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, Wi-Fi hot spot, and navigation are available. These features are expected to be offered on the 2022 Charger.

There are six different available engines for the current Charger. All of these engines are expected to be offered on the 2022 model. The standard engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 292 horsepower and comes with rear-wheel drive. With all-wheel drive, the engine makes 300 hp. A 5.7-liter V8 engine is the next step up, producing 370 hp. A 6.4-liter V8 engine that’s rated at 485 hp is the next available engine. Two supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engines are available, with one making 717 hp and the other making 797 hp. All engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Dodge only offers two standard safety features on the Charger, which include a rearview camera and rear parking sensors. Advanced safety features, like adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist are optional. The NHTSA gave the current Charger a five-star overall safety rating. We expect these safety features and ratings to remain the same for the 2022 Dodge Charger.

Pricing & Release Date

Dodge hasn’t announced when it will release the 2022 Charger. Based on previous years, we expect an on-sale date of fall 2021.

Pricing for the 2022 Dodge Charger remains a mystery. Without any major changes, we expect the large sedan to remain close to the current model’s range of $31,490 to $80,090 including destination.

This large sedan competes with the Chrysler 300, Nissan Maxima, Toyota Avalon, and Volkswagen Arteon.
