The Dodge Charger hasn’t received the same attention as the Challenger, mostly due to the build of the SRT Demon. But now it is time to give their popular sedan a few nice upgrades for 2019. Offered in six trim levels, the V6 GT model uses SRT technology and suspension for a fun RWD sedan. The SXT package now includes AWD. You can even order a 5.7L Hemi with AWD if you happen to be a police officer. Dodge won’t sell civilians this package which makes us question their logic.
If you do want Hemi V8 power, the R/T Scat Pack and the SRT Hellcat have received some “demonic” hardware. The Scat Pack arrives with the 6.4L 392 Hemi offering 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. A new switch on the dash activates launch assist and the line lock. Houndstooth interior is standard while Bilstein active suspension and a matte black hood are optional. The Hellcat has Torque Reserve and the After-Run chiller added to the supercharger. The new grille has dual air inlets to feed the 707 horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8. With 650 lb-ft of torque, it remains the most powerful American sedan.
