Simply put, the Charger is a beast. It stands out from sedans that are either styled to ooze sophistication or given a straightforward, don't-rock-the-boat design to appeal to the masses. The 2018 Dodge Charger  (and the Challenger) are sedans that aren't afraid to look different and are made for the driver that wants to get attention with bright colors, a growling engine, and overall aggressive demeanor.

The Charger comes in eight trims, but before we get into those let's look at the engine lineup because we know power is what you're after. Here are the four options:

  • 3.6L Pentasar V6 (AWD): 300 horsepower & 264 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L HEMI V8: 370 horsepower & 395 lb-ft of torque
  • 392 HEMI V8: 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque
  • Supercharged 6.2L HEMI SRT Hellcat V8: 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque

Engineers did a bang-up job with these selections that appeal to drivers just dipping their toe into the performance pool to those skilled buyers who want 700+ horsepower. Clearly, the Dodge Charger does not aim to disappointment.

Matching the rough exterior, the interior of this animal is performance-focused. We love the sports pedals, unique shifter design, and the driver information cluster that gives you all the necessary readouts when you're letting your Charger loose. Compared to many sedans, the interior is "sparse", but that's a good thing because it shouldn't pull too much focus away from the exhilarating ride ahead.

That said, designers still made sure drivers would get up to date technology and advanced safety features. All trims come standard with a touchscreen (7-inches on the base model and 8.4-inches on the others), rearview camera, and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto smartphone integration.  Other available or trim-dependent amenities include a premium Beats audio system, Sport Mode, and for safety there's adaptive cruise control with stop, advanced brake assist, forward collision alert, rain brake support, LaneSense, and much more!

The Charger comes in the following trims: SXT, GT, R/T, GT Plus AWD, Daytona, R/T Scat Pack, Daytona 392, SRT 392, and the legendary SRT Hellca. At Santa Monica Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram we carry a mix, and the Daytona 392 is our most popular with 485 horsepower, Brembo high performance brakes, and perforated leather-trim performance seats, to touch on a few highlights. 

If you're from the Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Ray, Playa Vista, Malibu, West Hollywood, El Segundo or West Los Angeles areas and are looking to take your vehicle to the next level, visit us today to test drive the satisfying Dodge Charger. And yes, we do like to keep at least one Hellcat in stock.
