The Dodge Charger is a legendary American muscle car. Or, at least, it used to look more like a speed demon than it does today, but that doesn’t make the newer models boring. The current Dodge Charger is a sedan and fits five people without any issues. That, and the Charger still has plenty of power to drop jaws, when properly equipped.
With the right trim level, you can still find the same kind of unbridled power of the classic Dodge Charger in the newer sedans. The first Dodge Charger hit the roads back in the ‘60s and ran until the late ‘70s. It was revived for most of the ‘80s as well, but the modern Charger wasn’t born until the 2006 model year. Finding a used Dodge Charger will probably mean finding one from 2006 or newer. The following table refers to the highlights of available features of the Dodge Charger in its seventh generation, which started in 2011 and continues to the time of this writing in 2020.
