2016 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack: 5 Things to Know

 

 

The Dodge Charger has been gracing American roadways since the first generation rolled off of the assembly line back in 1966. The ever-impressive styling, performance, and power of the Charger was brought back as a reintroduced sedan in 2006, after a nineteen-year hiatus. Despite its new classification as a sedan, the Charger still pulls out all of the stops when it comes to performing the way its original engineers intended.

Miami Dodge dealers have been drooling over the tenacity of the latest Charger model, ever since it was unveiled earlier this year. One of the most impressive models included in the new Charger lineup, is the 2016 Charger R/T Scat Pack. The car is seriously thrilling, so much so, that we have an entire page dedicated to it.

 

Practicality or Performance? How About Both?

There is nothing worse than buying a high-powered sports car, only to have it sit under a sheet in your garage. What is the point of owning a piece of automotive muscle, if you can’t ever take it out for some exercise?

When Dodge resurrected the Charger back in 2006, the Chrysler-owned company wanted the sedan to be as functional as the driver needed it to be. Their solution was a variety of Charger models and options packages, that allowed the driver to personalize their driving experience. While some drivers are content with owning a “weekend car,” others need their impressive sports car to also function in day to day life. Finding the right balance between the two is not as impossible as it may seem, and can be done under $40,000. Don’t believe us? The 2016 Dodge Charger offers six different model variations, so that drivers are able to choose the perfect balance between practicality, and performance. Still a skeptic? Continue on to find out why the 2016 CHarger R/T Scat Pack is the perfect variation of practicality and performance.

 

Charger Road and Track - Best of Both Worlds

 

Dodge created the 2016 Charger R/T model as a way to marry the two different lifestyles we touched on previously. R/T stands for Road and Track, meaning that the Charger is both capable, and practical. Dodge added a list of impressive standard amenities that help the sedan transform into a racecar, whenever the mood strikes.

For 2016, the Charger R/T Road and Track includes a performance exhaust system, a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine, and more. The Charger R/T is impressive on its own, but Dodge wanted to take the “track” side of the R/T model a bit further. The result? The 2016 Charger R/T Scat Pack. A beautiful solution to practical everyday driving, and adrenaline filled weekend racing.
