The 2019 Dodge Charger is one of America’s most captivating, sport-tuned models. It boasts an aggressive chassis backed by quality engineering and innovative accessories. It also has the muscle power you’d expect from a performance sedan with the modern appeal found in the latest assembly of current marvels. With that in mind, here’s a look at the 2019 Dodge Charger and some of its top features.
First up is a set of athletic trims starting from the base SXT and including the GT, R/T, Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat. All are fashioned for rear-wheel driving, though the SXT carries over into all-wheel drive as well. Next, you have a collection of practical and polished embellishments to keep you prepared for the journey ahead. These include aluminum wheels ranging from 17 to 20 inches in diameter, bi-function halogen projector headlamps, and brightly tinged dual exhaust tips plus optional decklid and body emblems.
Resting under the hood of the 2019 Dodge Charger is one of four powerful and praise-worthy engines. The first is a 3.6-liter 24-valve Pentastar V-6 generating up to 300 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. The second is a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 delivering 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. We then move to a 392 SRT Hemi V-8 with an output of 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque plus an acceleration rate of zero to 60 mph in just 4 seconds.
At the top of the list is a 6.2-liter SRT Hellcat Hemi V-8 packing a supercharged 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. All units feature a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, along with a hydraulic assist brake booster and available Brembo four- or six-piston brakes for an extra dose of stopping power over complex terrains.
The 2019 Charger is no doubt a fashion icon in the Dodge lineup. Those looking to get behind the wheel will find a tilt/telescopic steering column at the forefront of amenities, as well as an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support and a full-length floor console. On the optional side, you have plush Nappa leather conditioning in place of standard cloth upholstery and heated/ventilated front seats for the ultimate lavish touch.
Adorning the central dash is an intuitive Uconnect multimedia hub that’s user-friendly and comes with a 7-inch or 8.4-inch touch screen. It also allows access to smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth with voice command. Additional accessories include a cellphone storage compartment and optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
Solid Safety Features
The 2019 Dodge Charger is backed by superb safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, including top scores for side crash prevention and rollover resistance. You’ll also see a suite of standard equipment designed for optimal protection such as active head restraints for all seating positions, rear parking assistance, and electronic roll mitigation. You can also purchase a 12-month trial to Uconnect with SiriusXM Guardian for extra peace of mind. This bundle includes features such as SOS emergency calling and roadside assistance.
