New 2016 Dodge Charger at Roberts Chrysler Dodge for Meriden, CT

The 2016 Dodge Charger combines elements of old muscle car styling with a modern aesthetic. The Coke-bottle shape is right out of the Sixties, but the car also has the short front and rear overhangs and large wheels of a modern performance sedan. The grille and other details are closely aligned with other Dodge models, including the Durango R/T and the sportiest versions of the Dart. It looks like a car that will slip powerfully through the air rather than batter it aside through brute force.

Under the Charger's Hood

The base engine for the SE model is a 292-horsepower Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 producing 260 lb-ft of torque, and it's the fuel economy champ. The SXT model with the Rallye Appearance Group boosts those numbers to 300 hp and 264 lb-ft. To start, there's the R/T with its 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 rated at 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque. The R/T has lots of low-rpm torque, which is typical of an American V-8.

The eight-speed automatic transmission performs flawlessly with this engine, and while you sure don't need eight ratios for an engine with this kind of torque plateau, it does mean that the R/T is always on top of its game. It has plenty of intermediate ratios to choose from when you want to ease into a pass without going full-throttle. All of these models handle surprisingly well for a big, heavy sedan, with much more of a nimble nature than a Ford Taurus or Chevrolet Impala. There's a bit of lean and body roll in all models, but it's better controlled in the SRT 392 and Hellcat thanks to their selectable suspension. Dodge retuned the suspension last year, making it a bit more firm, yet somehow we think the ride is more agreeable.

Design of Dodge Charger

The "LED racetrack" rear lights are a signature of the Charger. Dodge uses light pipes to give a continuous red outline to the tail panel. The rear bumper has a smooth design, and the exhaust inlets are integrated into the lower panel. On the trunk lid, Dodge provides a small lip spoiler that provides plenty of downforce with a clean, integrated look. Inside, as ever, you pay for this model's rather high beltline with outward visibility that's more limited than in most other sedans. The upright packaging brings plenty of headroom all around, and wide, strongly bolstered front seats offer a look and feel that's definitely performance-inspired. Otherwise the design is harmonious with the rest of the models in the Dodge and Jeep lineups, with subtle surfacing, contrasting matte metallic framing accents, and plenty of soft-touch materials. There's a 7-inch thin-film TFT screen to the center of the instrument cluster, while the center stack includes a touchscreen up to 8.4-inches across, used for 3-D navigation and downloadable apps.
