The Dodge Magnum is a mid-size wagon that adapted to modern times in terms of style, power, and utility. Its long, low stance called to mind the wagons it was originally based on with a contemporary spin. It is no longer in production.
The Magnum sold from 2005 to 2008, and but can be found today in four trim levels: SE, SXT, R/T, and SRT8. Each provided increasing levels of standard equipment, performance features, and luxury options.
Though production was short-lived, the Dodge Magnum was designed with a roomy and comfortable interior, spacious cargo area, and phenomenal performance. Naturally, the tradeoff for performance is in its fuel economy - the Magnum's fuel economy is a bit on the low side, but higher trims equipped with the V8 engine are well-suited for long distance cruising and have responsive brakes. Handling capabilities are equally composed on those higher-level trims.
Due to the Dodge Magnum's short-lived lifespan, the vehicle may be hard to find. Not to mention, drivers would find challenge in choosing from the wide variety of builds, trims, packages, and options. Still, its unique style, praised performance, and comfortable ride may make the search worth the hunt.
The Dodge Magnum has models standard in rear-wheel drive with higher trims, including the SXT and R/T, built with all-wheel drive. Base models can have either a 2.7L V6 engine or a 3.5L V6 engine with an optional upgrade to V8 engines. Automatic transmission is standard on all versions; a four-speed to pair with V6 engines and five-speed for V8 engines.
