5 reasons to buy the 2016 Dodge Charger

1. Powerful engine lineup

Starting with what is, arguably, the 2016 Dodge Charger's most appealing aspect: its engine. The Charger is a great performance-oriented car that's offered with powerful engine options. The base model is powered by a standard Pentastar® 3.6L V6 engine producing 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Available engine options include a 5.7L V8 that generates 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque; a 6.4L V8 with 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque; as well as the top-of-the-line supercharged 6.2L V8 that generates a whopping 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque and is only offered on the SRT Hellcat model.

2. Thrilling performance

With such strong engine options, it's no wonder that the 2016 Dodge Charger is capable of delivering exciting performance. It's a quick, well-balanced car, with composed handling and responsive steering. The top-level SRT Hellcat trim, powered by a 6.2L V8 engine, goes from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 204 mph.

3. Standard tech features

In addition to performance, another significant part of the appeal of the 2016 Dodge Charger is the level of equipment it comes with. There are plenty of standard tech features that make each ride as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Specifically, all models come standard with the Uconnect® infotainment system with Bluetooth® connectivity and a 5-inch touchscreen, as well as three USB ports and a six-speaker audio system. Upgrades such as dual-zone automatic climate control, a larger touchscreen, and a navigation system are part of the equipment on the SXT trim and higher.

4. Cargo space

Even though it's mostly associated with style and excitement, the 2016 Dodge Charger can also be a practical choice. It offers plenty of room for cargo, so you'll be able to carry the things you need. Whether its suitcases for family vacations or sporting equipment for you or your kids, the trunk can fit it all with 16.1 cu-ft of cargo room, and you can increase the storage volume by folding down the rear seats, which is quite convenient.

5. Attractive design

The exterior design of the 2016 Dodge Charger complements the power under its hood perfectly. It owes its attractive looks to its traditional muscle car design, upgraded with a couple of modern elements, such as the large wheels. It's a striking vehicle that is guaranteed to make an impression wherever it appears, sporting the coke bottle styling that's typical of many American muscle cars. This look is highlighted by the high beltline, the swollen rear fender, and the roof pillars with hard edges.
