The Dodge Charger is at present just in its second era, presented in 2011, yet Avoid's execution vehicle got a striking facelift a year ago that left it with less massive styling and a totally new front sash that carries it into line with whatever is left of the Evade lineup. It's an auto that can offer a great deal of execution for the cash, and its more sweltering execution renditions don't generally have any immediate rivalry in the realm of vehicles. 

Changes for 2016 are negligible however eminent, and incorporate another shading, "Completely Insane", that is a return to the ostentatious hues offered on Chrysler muscle autos in the 1960s and 1970s. Additionally new are the Blacktop Bundle, with various dark outside accents, another move and customize menu bar on the 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, Siri Eyes Free voice control, and an accessible Super Track Pack for V6-prepared models.

Seven models make up the Charger lineup. The SE ($27,990) and SXT ($29,995) both get a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that produces an adequate 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, which can be bumped up to 300 hp with the SXT's Rallye Appearance Group. The V6 powerplants come mated to an eight-speed automatic, and are available with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive . The R/T, at $33,695, gets a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that makes 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque, with a minor Road/Track upgrade that starts at $36,695 and adds 20-inch chromed wheels, a 3.06 rear axle, and heated and ventilated sports seats. Next up are the R/T Scat Pack ($39,995) and the SRT 392 ($50,995), both of which get the 6.4-liter V8 that makes 485 hp and allows for a 0-60 time somewhere in the mid-four second range. The Scat Pack is more or less a heritage model, with beefier suspension, launch control, Brembo brakes, and Bilstein dampers, while the SRT 392 is more of a premium performance edition that is closer to the range-topping Hellcat, and even includes the Hellcat's enormous brakes and adaptive damping system. The 2016 SRT 392 also adds Laguna leather upholstery, a navigation system, and HD radio. 

The Hellcat, speaking of, is an instant classic, noted for its insane power and certainly not intended for the faint of heart. At $65,945, it’s $1,950 more than last year but still offers a ton of car for the price with its 707-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (there's also a setting that will tune it down to "just" 500hp). The epic Hellcat motor made its debut in the smaller two-door Challenger, but the Charger, although heavier, is actually quicker from 0-60 with a time of 3.7 seconds thanks for more effective power distribution. Because it’s a performance milestone that is arguably already collectible, people have been throwing money at Dodge in order to get their hands on a Hellcat ever since it came out. The company is being very careful about where it allocates the limited number of 2016 editions, so finding one is likely to be a lot more complicated than simply walking into your nearest Dodge dealer.

Fuel economy, especially higher up in the model range, should probably not be a primary consideration when purchasing a Charger. Even so, the V6 versions get a pretty impressive 19 mpg city/31 highway with RWD and 18/21 with AWD. Once you add two cylinders, though, the numbers drop to the kind you’d expect from such a big, heavy car. Hemi-powered cars get 16/25, SRT cars get 15/25, and the Hellcat gets a thirsty but not ridiculous 13/22.
All Chargers aside from the Hellcat have electric force controlling, and Evade changed the suspension a year ago with a specific end goal to give the Charger better taking care of and a firmer ride. Vast entryways make it simpler to get in and out, yet once strapped in you'll understand that the high beltline that gives the auto its sharp look on the outside means restricted perceivability within. In any case, genuine inside room is more than sufficient, and the storage compartment has a respectable however unexceptional 16.5 cubic feet of storage room. Every Charger model accompany push catch begin, a force driver's seat, and a Uconnect infotainment system based on a 8.4-inch touchscreen. 

Discretionary additional items on the 2016 Charger incorporate Blind side Observing, Path Takeoff Cautioning, Cross Way Identification, and Versatile Voyage Control. The Uconnect framework additionally includes 911 and roadside help call help. These wellbeing elements come packaged together in the Innovation Gathering bundle, yet are generally just accessible in the more costly models. The 2016 model hasn't yet been accident tried, however past models have become five-star results from the NHTSA.
