Want an old-school large American sedan, brash and bold, packing V8 muscle and a soundtrack that punctuates its lack of political correctness? That's the Dodge Charger. Just don't tell anyone that it's also refined, comfortable, and luxurious. After all, it's got a macho image to protect.
Over the years, the Charger has moved from being merely a caricature of a classic American sedan to becoming a fully developed and satisfying car. It relies on a solid structure inherited from Mercedes-Benz, uses a world-class eight-speed automatic that is also used in Audis, BMWs, and Jaguars, and has one of the best infotainment systems in the business. Ultimately, the Charger is not just about brawn. It packs some sophistication and offers a lot of bang for the buck. Under a luxury brand name, a sedan delivering that much content and performance would cost another $20,000 or more.
