Why Dodge Chargers Are So Popular


Few cars are as evocative as the Dodge Charger. With huge power and great looks, the new Charger is the direct descendant of the powerful muscle cars of the 1970s. Here’s why Dodge Chargers are so popular.

Powerful Engines

One of the reasons why the Dodge Charger is so popular is the sheer power on offer. When it comes to the Charger, no matter what color, trim, or options package you go for, you’ll be getting an engine that is pure power.  The Charger’s base engine is a 3.6-liter V-6 capable of 292 horsepower and 260 lbs.-ft, of torque. While that is a strong motor, the Charger has so much more to give, including the R/T Scat Pack, which boasts a monster 6.4-liter V-8 engine capable of 485 horsepower and an impressive 475 lbs.-ft. of torque, or the downright scary SRT Hellcat, which has a V-8 that can crank out 707 horsepower and 650 lbs.-ft. of torque!

Fast Off the Line

A powerful engine is one thing, but it’s how fast a car can get up to speed that really makes the Charger an impressive vehicle. Dodge’s huge 6.4-liter V-8 has the impressive ability to go from 0-60 mph is a dizzying 4.6 seconds, while the even bigger Hellcat engine can get you up to 60 in only 4.1 mph. That’s a speed that even rivals the European sports car giants – for a fraction of the price.


The Dodge Charger is popular among all sectors due to the impressive array of customization options available. Nearly everything on the Charger can be configured to meet the precise needs of each owner. From engine size, braking packages, and suspension, the Charger has an option for everything you need to get the perfect drive!

For those who want their car to be a technological and entertainment marvel, the Charger also boasts an impressive touchscreen infotainment system. This touchscreen system controls every aspect of the car and entertainment and can be customized based on your package. The base screen, for instance, starts at 7-inches, whereas the higher-end models feature a larger, 8.4-inch screen. No matter the size, however, the interface is simple to use, and not overly-sensitive to touch motions.


Perhaps the biggest reason why the Dodge Charger is so popular is the user-friendliness of the vehicle. Despite its emphasis on power and speed, the Charger is an easy car to drive, handle and stop. Not only that, but the controls in the vehicle are intuitive and well-labeled, and the Charger offers impressive amounts of legroom.
