Dodge Charger Overview

Dodge's large, rear-wheel-drive sedan handles responsively and has a steady, comfortable ride. As with its corporate cousin, the Chrysler 300, the spacious cabin is furnished with well-fitting, good-quality materials, and the optional touch-screen controls are very easy to use. The refined V6 performs well; a juicier 370-hp V8 is optional. Visibility has also been improved but is still not great. V6 versions use a slick eight-speed automatic, which helped it deliver 22 mpg overall in our tests, an improvement of 1 mpg over the version with the five-speed automatic. The sporty SRT uses a stunningly powerful 6.4-liter V8. Reliability has been below average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
