What You Will Like

The Dodge Charger is a full-size sedan, offering strong V6 and V8 engines, along with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive on its V6 models. Dodge claims that the Charger's all-wheel-drive system is the most advanced system offered in its class, as it completely disconnects the front wheels when not needed. Styling has always been a big part of the Charger's appeal, and there's no mistaking it for anything else in a crowded field of large sedans.

What's New For 2019

Dodge has shuffled the lineup of the Charger sedan for 2019. Previously available in AWD, the GT trim is now rear-drive only, while the SXT now offers the option of all-wheel drive. The SRT 392 has been discontinued, while the Daytona trim has morphed into a package for R/T and Scat Pack models. The Charger Scat Pack and Hellcat trims now include line lock and launch control, with the Hellcat also offering torque reserve, which builds boost while stopped to aid in faster launches, and the After-Run Chiller system borrowed from the Demon, which helps cool the supercharger by using a/c refrigerant. R/T and GT models have a revised hood and front fascia, upgraded performance suspension and Dodge Performance Pages to analyze performance metrics in real time.

Warranty

  • Basic Warranty: 3 Years / 36,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Introduction

Recalling ancestors from the muscle-car era, as far back as 1966, the 2019 Charger continues to entice enthusiasts and is unmistakably American. Aging gracefully, the Charger can be a V6 family sedan or, packing V8 power, a genuine muscle car. The basic platform hasn’t changed since the modern-day Charger debuted for 2005.

Dodge has reworked its model lineup for 2019, adding an all-wheel-drive SXT. The GT becomes a V6 model with performance looks.

New red, blue, and silver dual-center stripes decorate the SRT Hellcat. Dual carbon stripes are available on R/T and R/T Scat Pack. Performance upgrades for the Hellcat and Scat Pack include Launch Assist and Line Lock, plus a “performance” grille with dual air intakes. A Launch Control switch goes on the R/T Scat Pack, while the Hellcat adds Torque Reserve and an After-Run Chiller.

The Charger lineup now consists of SXT, SXT AWD, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat.

Base engine for SXT trim is a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. In the SXT AWD and GT, the V6 is rated at 300 horsepower and 264 pound-feet.

In the Charger R/T, a 5.7-liter V8 makes 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque, for 0-60 mph acceleration in less than 6.0 seconds. The R/T Scat Pack boasts a 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 that slashes 0-60 mph time to about 4.5 seconds.

Topping off the lineup, the aptly-named SRT Hellcat unleashes a 707-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter V8, capable of hitting 60 mph in a blistering 3.7 seconds.

Charger offers a decent selection of safety features, but inconsistent test scores. In crash-testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Dodge’s Charger rated five stars overall and for side-impact, as well as rollover prevention (a calculated figure); but only four-star for the frontal-impact crash.

Crash-testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety earned mostly “Good” scores, but only a “Marginal” rating in the stringent frontal small-overlap test for the driver’s side. Headlights were judged “Poor.

A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are standard. Available safety features include adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

A high beltline restricts outward vision a bit more than other large sedans.

Lineup

Prices do not include $1,495 destination charge.

SXT ($29,220 with rear-drive, $33,320 with all-wheel drive) includes the 292-hp V6, cloth upholstery, keyless start, power driver’s seat, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, dual exhaust, and 17-inch alloy wheels (19-inch with AWD). The 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

GT ($31,495) has rear-wheel drive and a 300-horsepower V6. An aluminum hood with functional scoop, performance suspension and steering with paddle shifters, and 20-inch wheels are standard.

R/T ($35,995) gets the 370-horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 with rear-drive, electronically-controlled active exhaust, 8.4-inch touchscreen, and “performance” components similar to GT.

R/T Scat Pack ($39,995) moves up to the 485-horsepower V8 with dual air intakes, adding a high-performance suspension with Bilstein dampers, Brembo four-piston brakes, Launch Control, matte black spoiler, 20-inch Black Noise wheels, heated cloth bucket seats, and SRT Performance Pages digital readouts.

SRT Hellcat ($67,245) packs the 707-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with rear-drive. Standard features include six-piston front brake calipers, adaptive dampers, flat-bottom steering wheel, and a drive-mode system that alters the character of the transmission, throttle, steering weight, and dampers.

An optional Dynamics Package adds six-piston Brembo brakes. Blacktop and Daytona option packages are available.

Walkaround

Though the base SXT model is relatively subdued, every Charger flaunts vivid throwback styling, descended from the vintage muscle car for which the 2019 sedan is named. In basic shape, it’s as defiantly American as any car on the road. Flamboyant color choices and wild stripes add to the Sixties character.

What used to be called Coke-bottle shaping features drawn-in bodysides and bulging fenders. Roof pillars are thick and pronounced. Texture of the wide black grille varies according to trim level. GT versions and up add increasingly assertive extras, like a hood scoop, sculpted side sills, and decklid spoiler.

Interior

Charger’s retro-inspired cabin is harmonious with its exterior. Subtly shaped surfaces highlight the soft-touch dashboard. A slash of thin matte metallic trim encloses the 7.0-inch digital instrument display, flanked by easy-to-read gauges. Either a 7.0- or 8.4-inch screen for the intuitive, easy-to-use infotainment system occupies the center.

Rubbery black plastic gives the base Charger a low-dollar look. Upper models rely on metallic trim and supple leather.

Upright styling helps give front passengers – including those of ample girth – plenty of space, with abundant elbow room. Even the Hellcat’s thickly-bolstered sport seats won’t pinch large passengers.

Interior space isn’t quite as great as the sedan’s dimensions would suggest. The wide-track design permits three-across seating in the rear, though knee and head clearance trail other big sedans. Because of the roof angle, passengers may have to duck their heads considerably. At 16.5 cubic feet, trunk space is sizable.

Driving Impressions

Even V6 models can be entertaining. V8s promise delight, stemming from vigorous sounds that accompany thrilling – or SRT scorching – acceleration.

The V6-powered SXT is efficient and reasonably powerful, impressively respectable in ride and handling. This competent engine mates well with the responsive 8-speed automatic transmission, providing effective midrange passing punch. However, the electronic gear selector can be difficult to decipher.

In an R/T, the V8’s exhaust rumble is augmented by an active exhaust system. Ride comfort is about as compliant and forgiving as that of a V6 Charger.

All Chargers handle well, with accurate steering and controlled moves. Body lean is noticeable in curves and corners.

Ride quality begins to suffer with the R/T Scat Pack, whose handling talents approach racetrack level. Husky 20-inch tires can smack against sharp bumps and potholes. Even top models won’t thrash occupants on rough roads

A choice of driving modes gives the all-out Hellcat different personalities. On the street, it can be calm and firm, as well as forgiving to occupants. Full-bore, the Hellcat turns intensively stiff for track duty. If the black key is used, output is limited to 500 horsepower, so valets might be less tempted. The red key unleashes all 707 horses, triggering pure exhilaration,

On winding roads, the Hellcat becomes quite a handful. Even when lightly pushed, its rear end threatens to kick out, tires are overwhelmed, and the ride stiffens. Through quick corners, the driver must fight against hefty vehicle weight.

Chargers are commendably quiet unless pushed hard. They’re fairly efficient with V6 power, but V8s guzzle. With rear-drive, the V6 is EPA-rated at 19/30 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers estimates to 18/27/21 mpg.

The 5.7-liter V8 requires mid-grade fuel and its EPA estimate drops to 16/25/19 mpg. The 6.4-liter V8 drinks premium, EPA-rated at 15/24 mpg City/Highway, or/18 mpg Combined. At the performance limit, the SRT Hellcat is EPA-rated at 13/22/16 mpg.

Summary

Dodge offers plenty of satisfying Charger choices, for family-focused buyers as well as latter-day muscle fans. Each scores well in performance, cabin comfort, value, and available features. Best bet for daily driving is the V6-powered SXT, which provides the essential Charger character at a moderate price, lacking only performance-focused extras. For performance, the 485-horsepower R/T Scat Pack is only one step removed from the outrageous SRT, which is vastly more expensive.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
