2012 Dodge Charger
2012 Dodge Charger
The Dodge Charger may look the same as last year's model, but it has been upgraded in some significant ways. The most noteworthy change to the lineup is the return of the high-performance SRT8, which is powered by the same 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 found under the hood of the Challenger SRT8. The muscular V-8, which is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, delivers 45 more hp and 50 more lb-ft of torque than the 6.1-liter it replaces, bumping the numbers up to 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Despite the extra dose of power, Dodge has managed to improve the fuel efficiency of the SRT8 by 21 percent (to 23 mpg highway) by using a fuel-saving technology that allows the engine to run on fewer cylinders when it is under a light load. The SRT8 is welcome news, and equally welcome is the appearance of Chrysler's new eight-speed automatic transmission in the SXT and SXT Plus models; it's available as an option in the SE. The new transmission, which is available only with the 292-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine, results in quicker acceleration, smoother shifts, and improved fuel efficiency -- 31 mpg on the highway. The Dodge Charger is a vehicle that makes a statement both visually and dynamically. With a slew of options, improved efficiency and power, and a whole lot of emotion, this is a sedan that should appeal across a fairly broad spectrum of car buyers.

The 2012 Dodge Charger, though a new design, is in many ways a relic. We got our first glimpse of the car in December 2008, when Chrysler invited deputy editor Joe DeMatio to preview future products (remember, this was a time when many assumed Chrysler didn't have future products). DeMatio saw a promising Jeep Grand Cherokee and a nicely massaged Chrysler 300. But the biggest surprise was an absolutely stunning new Charger that stepped out of the 300's shadow with a sculpted body, full-width taillamps, and a modern interior. "That's a Charger I wouldn't mind being seen in," he said, although he mused that Chrysler might go broke before he got the chance. That chance arrived when the U.S. government and Fiat stepped in, even if it's safe to say that neither were too excited about the large rear-wheel-drive sedans that had been pushed through by the previous regime. "I won't even tell you the amount of money that the platform costs -- you'd be shocked out of your pants," said new CEO Sergio Marchionne in the fall of 2009. "But it's done, and life will move on."
