The 2019 Charger has some big shoes to fill, with its namesake from the 60s and 70s holding a legendary status when it comes to American performance. Luckily, Dodge engineers seem to have met and surpassed those expectations with and old-school formula and modern engineering.

The heart of performance in any Charger sits under its bonnet. The car benefits a range engine options that offer great power from the start. With the Charger, there's no need to avoid the base model. That's because the standard 3.6-liter V6 offers up to 300 horsepower. In the middle of the range, you'll find the 5.7-liter HEMI V8. This motor ups the ante to 370 horsepower. Pick up an R/T Scat Pack model and you'll find a 392 HEMI V8 under the hood with 485 horsepower. And then there's the mighty SRT Hellcat engine. This 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 charges the field with 707 horsepower.

Dodge engineers understood that it would take a quality drive train and chassis to rein in that kind of power.

Modern touches like LED running lights and large wheels are available as well. On top of it all, Dodge offers a wide variety of exterior colors to help make your Charger your own.
