Dodge Charger 2018 Overview and Price
Dodge Charger 2018 Overview and Price

Last year, the Charger underwent a few behind-the-scenes modifications like an updated infotainment system, a new exhaust, and more. With those updates buttoning up a few of the Charger’s couple of problems, we don’t anticipate any substantial Dodge Changes for the 2018 design year. After its refresh that added new lighting, it took a while for fans to warm back up to the 2018 Dodge Charger. With fans back on board, we see no factor for Dodge to rock the boat just yet. We expect this very same lack of change to continue inside, which is a disappointment, as the cabin feels a little low-grade next to a few of its higher-end competition. Buyers looking for modification need not wait long, as we anticipate a complete redesign at some point next year.

With all the visuals staying the same, we also anticipate no tweaks to standard features. If this winds up true, try to find the 2018 Dodge Charger to continue with basic 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone environment control, power driver’s seat, 5-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio system, and more.

The current Dodge Charger rides on an older platform and this results in some battles in the safety department. In IIHS testing, the 2017 Charger received “Good” rankings in 4 of the 5 tests, but in the difficult small-overlap test, it received just a “Limited” rating. The present Dodge Charger does, however, have the most recent safety goodies, like readily available front accident warning with automated braking. Without any modifications prepared, these scores must remain the exact same in 2018.

2018 Dodge Charger Engine

There must be absolutely nothing new under the 2018 Dodge Charger hood. We anticipate to see a basic 3.6-liter V6 with 292 horsepower. The optional Ralleye Group bumps this 3.6-liter V6 to 300 hp. A little more power features the R/T and Daytona design’s 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with 370 hp. One step up are the R/T Scat Load and 392 models with a 485-hp 6.4-liter V8. Topping the variety is the magnificent Hellcat model with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that injects 707 hp. All engines come basic with rear-wheel drive, while the 3.6-liter V6s get optional all-wheel drive.

Somewhere else in the lineup, the 2018 Dodge Challenger will gain a brand-new version called the SRT Satanic force. It will be characterized by a variation of the Hellcat engine with a fiercer roar, a wider position and updated owning dynamics. There are presently no indications that the 2018 Dodge Charger will get a comparable treatment.

We anticipate the 2018 Dodge Charger to start production in July 2017 and struck showrooms sometime in August. With Dodge altering absolutely nothing, we don’t expect any huge rates shifts from the present design’s series of $29,090-$68,740.
