5 reasons to buy the 2018 Dodge Charger

1. Bold styling and colors

Since the original model was introduced in 1966, the Dodge Charger has always been known for its brash and eye-catching styling. The 2018 model more than lives up to that legacy in style. The menacing front end and big side scallops in the doors give the 2018 Dodge Charger real presence and curb appeal. Complementing this bold style is a selection of fifteen available exterior colors, including ultra-distinctive tones like Plum Crazy Pearl, Redline Red Tricoat Pearl and Go Mango. Get ready to be the center of attention wherever you go behind the wheel of your 2018 Dodge Charger.

2. Lengthy list of features

With a total of ten trim levels across a jam-packed feature list, there is guaranteed to be a 2018 Dodge Charger model to suit your specific needs. Even the base SXT trim includes features like rear parking sensors and the Dodge Uconnect® infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen. Elsewhere on the mid-range R/T trim, two option packages can be found: the Plus Group, including xenon headlights and a heated steering wheel, and the Premium Group which includes the Plus Group's options as well as automatic wipers and navigation software.

3. Choice of three powerful V8 options

If you're in the market for a muscle car, you'll likely be looking for a fire-breathing V8 engine under the hood. The 2018 Dodge Charger offers a choice of not one, not two, but three powerful V8 options. The first is a 5.7L V8 offered on R/T trims upwards, packing 370 horsepower. Not bad, but how about more power? There's the 6.4L V8 on R/T Scat Pack trims upwards, with 485 hp. Still not enough? You'll want the Hellcat model, which packs a 6.2L supercharged V8 producing a mind-blowing 707 hp. Yes, you read that right. For sheer high-octane muscle car thrills, the 2018 Dodge Charger really is hard to beat.

4. Roomy sedan cabin

The 2018 Dodge Charger is a muscle car wrapped up in a midsize sedan body, and as such, has much more room inside for you and your passengers than you might expect from a high-output performance car. There's seating for five inside, with 104.7 cu-ft of passenger volume, and a generous 41.8 inches of front seat legroom and 40.1 inches of rear seat legroom. And not only is it spacious inside, but it's supremely comfortable too. R/T Scat Pack trims upwards offer heated front and rear seats, and SRT 392 trims upwards offer all-leather upholstery.

5. Driver convenience features for peace of mind

Alongside the spacious cabin, the 2018 Dodge Charger also includes a range of driver convenience technologies to make everyday driving an absolute breeze. The Technology Group package can be added from SXT Plus to SRT 392 trims and includes adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams and wipers, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. GT trims also add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, just for that extra bit of peace of mind. A ferocious muscle car and a practical everyday sedan all in one? The 2018 Dodge Charger can do it all.
