2016 Dodge Charger
When pursuing a true muscle car, customers wouldn't necessarily focus on Dodge's variety of available vehicles. While the brand may not offer a muscle car per se, their 2016 Dodge Charger is as close as you can get to the segment.
The mid-size car offers some absolutely incredible power specs via the capable and efficient engine offerings, and the accompanying mechanics will adapt your car to cater to this athleticism. The "least capable" of these options is still able to pump out close to 300 horsepower, with the top option producing over 700 horsepower!
To enforce the theory that the Dodge Charger is essentially a muscle car, engineers refined the interior and exterior to keep up with those rival, pricier vehicles. The car is also chock-full of technological features, whether they impact the overall traveling experience or the vehicle's safety.
When all is said and done, the Charger is just as capable as the available muscle cars, and the available interior and exterior amenities puts the nameplate on a tier of its own. When you consider the affordable price tag, you'd be hard pressed to find another ride that offers all of these features and capabilities.
Avail. SRT Hellcat Engine
One of the main attributes of a muscle car is the astonishing power produced by the various engine options. The Dodge Charger delivers in this respect, as drivers can expect optimal horsepower and torque via the available offerings. Whether you opt for the 292-horsepower V6 or the awe-inspiring 707-horsepower V8, drivers will be able to hold their own on the highway or raceway.
Of course, those powerful engines would mean very little if the accompanying mechanics weren't up to par. The 2016 Charger's systems are certainly capable and ready to go, partnering with the chosen engine to deliver an optimal driving experience.
Incredibly Powerful Engine Options
When a brand's "least powerful" engine offering pumps out close to 300 horsepower, you know you've got a difficult decision to make.
The Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 is the most impressive engine option. Available on the Charger SRT Hellcat, drivers can take advantage of the incredible 707 horsepower and 650 pounds-feet of torque. As a result of these astonishing specs, the SRT Hellcat is generally regarded as the "world's quickest, fastest, and most powerful sedan ever!"
The other engines may not be as mighty, but they're still very capable. The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 (available on the Charger R/T Scat Pack and SRT 392) can pump out 485 horsepower and 475 pounds-feet of torque. These specs contribute to the car's 0-60 time lingering right above four seconds.
The 5.7-liter HEMI V8 (standard on Charger R/T) is among the more fuel-efficient options, as the unit delivers 25 miles per gallon on the highway. Of course, you can still expect plenty of power thanks to the best-in-class 370 horsepower and 395 pounds-feet of torque. Finally, the 292-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 utilizes Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Throttle Control (with Speed Control) to deliver a 31 mile per gallon efficiency on the highway.
Optimal Drivability and Handling
To better accommodate all of that power, Dodge's engineers refined the Charger's accompanying mechanics. Drivers will become particularly familiar with the class-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, which plays an important role in both performance and efficiency. The electronic shifter provides a seamless switch of gears, and the paddle shifters allow you to change gears without removing your hands from the steering wheel.
The Charger's excellent handling and drivability can be attributed to any of the four available suspension options, while the numerous braking technologies (like an Antilock Brake System and Rain Brake Support) improve the vehicle's stoppage ability. Finally, the available all-wheel-drive system will allow you to travel in any kind of condition. Thanks to this technology, drivers can expect improved control and traction.
If you're going to be zooming down the highway in your de facto muscle car, you're going to want your ride to impress all of your fellow drivers. The Charger's exterior will do just that, as the familiar (albeit modernized) design will have other driver's heads turning. The exterior also contains a number of convenience features that will help put the driver at ease.
These stylish inclusions also apply to the interior. The cabin has been sculpted to deliver extreme comfort. Whether drivers are enjoying the heated/ventilated seats or the abundance of cargo room, they're going to find that they're traveling without a care in the world.
Stunning, Convenient Exterior
The Charger features one of the most recognizable and beloved exteriors on the market, and engineers have done an admirable job of slightly revamping the style over time. The car is as sculpted and muscular as ever, featuring striking curves and angles that help accentuate its overall athleticism. A crosshair grille upfront and an LED racetrack taillamp in the back are truly the icing on the cake.
The exterior also provides a number of helpful convenience features that will improve the overall driving experience. The heated mirrors will ensure that snow or ice won't accumulate on the glass, which could hinder the driver's visibility. On those cold mornings, drivers will appreciate the ability to remotely start their vehicle from the comfort of their own home.
Meanwhile, a capless fuel filler provides an electronic locking door, preventing someone from tampering with the system. Finally, the power sunroof can easily be accessed thanks to the express-open features. This means a driver can enjoy the fresh air without having to finagle with the opening mechanism.
Refined, Comfortable Interior
The interior offers a number of premium materials and comfort amenities, reminding you that your "muscle car" is actually a luxury sedan. The standard seats are accompanied by a number of upholstery options (including Nappa leather), but drivers could also opt for the larger sport seats. These seats can offer ventilation/heating capabilities, and when coupled with the Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, drivers can expect maximum comfort.
Surprisingly, the vehicle also offers a sufficient amount of cargo room. The 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks allows you to sneak your longer equipment or cargo (likes skiis and snowboards) into the cabin. Of course, you should have plenty of room to fit all of your luggage thanks to the Charger's 16.5-cubic-feet of space.
As expected, the Dodge Charger also contains a number of technological amenities. The elaborate infotainment system is accompanied by a pair of available sound systems, providing the occupants with an enjoyable, entertaining ride. Meanwhile, the number of connectivity features will guarantee that the Charger's occupants can always stay on the grid.
Considering the amount of power the Charger can deliver, engineers were clever to add an assortment of safety features, thus assuring that all occupants would remain safe. These systems play a role in preventing serious collisions or minor fender benders, so you'll be able to keep yourself, your passengers, and your new car out of harm's way.
Chevy's Uconnect system is one of the most underrated aspects of the 2016 Charger. The infotainment system provides drivers with a plethora of information, and they can easily access music via their phone (thanks to the Media Hub and Bluetooth capabilities included), standard radio, or SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Passengers can jam out to either the six-speaker audio system or the BeatsAudio Premium Sound System. Featuring a number of speakers and a 552-watt amplifier, this available inclusion provides an optimal listening experience.
Meanwhile, the Charger is equipped with a number of features that will allow passengers to stay connected. The dual-charging USB ports will allow multiple occupants to charge their phones simultaneously, while the auxiliary power outlet allows you to juice some of your larger gadgets.
Considering the amount of power that's lingering under the Charger's hood, drivers will need to rely on several of the vehicle's safety technologies to feel completely in control. Features like All-Speed Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control will prevent your vehicle from swerving or sliding, while technologies like the Rear Cross Path Detection or the ParkSense Rear Park Assist will stop a driver from accidently hitting a stationary object.
Of course, drivers don't only have to rely on the technological features. The sturdy frame and exterior crumple zones will keep passengers safe during a collision, and the advanced multistage driver and front passenger airbags will provide that necessary amount of padding.
