Editor's Overview

The 2018 Dodge Charger isn’t your typical full-size family sedan. Where competitors like the front-drive Toyota Avalon and Chevrolet Impala impart a sporty look, the rear-wheel-drive Charger displays a rowdy all-American bravado backed up by a team of powerful engine options, including a 707-horsepower Hemi V8 found in the Charger SRT Hellcat.

My 2018 Dodge Charger. And what it means to me.

I love my vehicle. It has been very reliable. We take it on vacations every year. And it is our family car. And I also use it to go to work in also. I love my car. I would not have any other. It was the first one I noticed at the dealership and it was the only one I wanted. We did a test drive on it. And I fell in love with it. I told my husband I didn't want any other. I had to have my Dodge Charger. And I am so thankful that I chose this car. No problems at all with great performance. And very comfortable.

- Lisa S

Comfortable and stylish with many conveniences.

Third Dodge I have owned and have been impressed with the longevity of the models. The charger is well designed, can seat 6, convenient placement of buttons/switches/etc.. It has an awesome dual setting ac for driver and front passenger plus vents in back. The stereo and air system is touch screen with a large and clear display. Can control radio from steering wheel to avoid having to find a button.

- Sarah H

Best night ride burgundy Charger.

This car has been the most reliable. Its perfect simple and ready to go. The seats warm up and there's a sunroof for when it's really nice out. I love driving it and everyone gives me compliments regarding my car. The only problem I ever had with this car was a flat tire on the first night of driving it. Overall, it's a great car four door with a nice color and comfortable on the inside.
