Dodge says it has massaged the Charger's chassis in an effort to further reduce noise and vibration emanating from the powertrain. Elsewhere on the integrated frame and body, engineers gave the 2011 Charger more sound-deadening foam, a smoothed underbody, triple seals on the doors, and acoustic wheel well liners in the pursuit of improving cabin sound quality. Dual-pane windshields and front-door glass are also new and the suspension geometry has been tuned to better balance the driving dynamics.
Outside, the Charger's snout is endowed with the split crosshair grille and raked headlights reminiscent of the 2011 Durango. The aluminum hood and doors are appointed with "scallops," which essentially cleave large sections of metal from the body's mass. The rear is fitted with a Challenger-esque LED light setup spanning not only the taillights but the length of the trunk lid. Dodge calls it the "racetrack" graphic and uses 164 individual LED lights to leave an unmistakable impression as the Charger leaves the streetlights.
Inside, you get the usual array of safety features and Uconnect Touch for complete multimedia integration. A thick three-spoke steering wheel was specially tailored for the Dodge enthusiast to inspire confidence and relay the necessary feedback to the driver. The 2011 Charger is set to join the Dodge lineup later this year.
