This is my 2nd Charger and love it even more! I love the way the car handles very smooth. The interior is very nice and comfortable. Of course the 370 hp HEMI engine is the bomb so fast and well handled. I also love the technology and even the cup holders can chill or heat your drink. This model was rare to fine loaded with all the features I have.
My Dodge Charger is, by far, the coolest vehicle I have ever purchased. It performs well and is so comfortable that you're high rate of speed is barely felt inside the vehicle. It is very quiet inside, too, and has the perfect balance of sports muscle and classic sedan features. The gas mileage is not bad given it's size. I seem to get an average of 400 miles or more per full tank. The pickup is perfect and has a ton of power. I have never accelerated this fast to 65mph in my life!
This car is as practical as it is beautiful. I bought it for both city driving and frequent long trips, where its combination of exceptional comfort and solid muscle are much appreciated. The new styling finally recaptures some of the classic aesthetics of the late-60's/early-70's Chargers without sacrificing the freshness of modern design. I'm particularly impressed with the car's excellent gas mileage, which in my case has consistently outperformed the EPA estimates. The vehicle came equipped with a superb array of features for the price as well. HOWEVER, I have already experienced two major recalls which involve faulty electronics. The first concerned failure of the passive entry feature for the front door handles, which required complete replacement. The second is a safety recall for a condition where the car could lose ABS/ESC system function due to an overheated power distribution center. The fix involves installing a redesigned wiring kit to the fuse box. As an engineer, I find multiple issues with the electrical system disturbing, and wonder what other problems may be lurking out there--problems that could be expensive fixes if not caught and addressed in future recalls. Were it not for this concern, I would have happily given this car an excellent rating in the "value for the money" category. These issues aside, I am very pleased with the 2011 Charger and recommend this car to anyone who is looking for an affordable mix of great styling, muscle car performance, nice comfort and features, and excellent gas mileage.
A new generation of the Dodge Charger begins with the 2011 model year. In this edition, the Dodge Charger has maintained as a sleek profile with updates to the exterior and interior to enhance the appeal. The Charger is a great blend of modern sedan style with a more traditional muscle car appearance.
The 2011 Dodge Charger base model comes with feature packages that include air conditioning, a sound system with CD player and an aux jack. The Dodge Charger SE receives aluminum wheels and an upgraded interior with LED lights for cup holders. The SXT has the same feature package with the optional LED illuminated door map pockets, which are standard on the R/T. Other available features include heated seats, power sunroof and Sirius Backseat TV system to entertain passengers with live satellite television.
The 2011 Dodge Charger handles extremely well after its redesign. The vehicle drives smoothly and responsively, even if the ride is a bit firm. Four engine choices are available across trim levels, with fuel economy taking a backseat to engine performance. A four-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard, and all-wheel drive is available at higher trim levels.
Offered with a wide range of engines and trim levels, the 2011 Dodge Charger can be customized to appeal to many audiences and preferences. The base engine in the four-door sedan is a 2.7L V6. The SE trim level offers a 3.5L V6 engine available as an option, and the same 3.5L V6 engine comes standard on the SXT. For anyone seeking higher performance, the Dodge Charger R/T comes with a 5.8L V8 engine. The Dodge Charger's highest trim level, the Dodge Charger SRT8, delivers a 6.1L V8 engine with supercharged acceleration. Each trim level operates well as a daily-use vehicle, though drivers who value performance over fuel economy should seek out the higher trim levels.
As a part of the second generation of Dodge Chargers, the 2011 Charger is still reminiscent of muscle cars from the past, but takes additional style cues with a completely new body. The Charger is still bulky and a bit larger than the average midsize four-door sedan. Across all trim levels, the exterior is largely the same. On the inside, the Dodge Charger has a well-planned, attractive interior. Across the board, the design and control layout is straightforward and functional. Seating is comfortable as is the seat quality; the texture is more appealing and the materials are improved over previous Charger model years.
