A fabled name from the past returns in the form of a 4-door sedan. The Charger recalls the legendary Mopar muscle car from the 1960's. No Charger would be complete without a HEMI V-8 (5.7L), an upgrade from the standard 3.5L V-6. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed automatic. Dodge estimates 0-60 mph in 6.0 seconds for a HEMI equipped Charger. A Performance Handling Group sharpens the Charger's reflexes with 18" wheels and tires, tuned suspension, sport seats, and self-leveling dampers. The SRT8 package ups the performance even further with a 425 hp 6.1L V8 and 20 inch wheels and tires. Unlike its siblings the Chrysler 300 and the Dodge Magnum no AWD version is offered.
New Charger effectively replaces the Dodge Intrepid. Based on the same large RWD platform as the 300 and Magnum the Charger is a 4-door, 5 passenger sedan. Power is provided by either a 250 hp V6 or a 340 hp HEMI (R) V8. A 5-speed automatic is the only available transmission. SRT8 version features a 425hp 6.1L HEMI (R) V8.
"It's a car that evokes power and performance under the hood, yet provides everyday functionality and conveneience. We have the proven technologies and the legendary HEMI engine that allow us to produce a modern rear-wheel-drive muscle car." -- Craig Love, Vice President Rear-wheel-drive Product Team, Chrysler Group
