2015 Dodge Charger R/T

Pros: Brash muscle-car styling and attitude; lots of unique trim options; value for the dollar; sporty handling for the class; ludicrous performance of SRT Hellcat model

Cons: V8 fuel economy; acceleration with V6 might not satisfy some buyers attracted by Charger’s muscular looks

CG Says: Dodge’s boldly styled large car sees big changes for 2015. It gets a through restyling inside and out, new infotainment features, and new safety equipment such as Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. For high-performance fanatics, Dodge also unleashes the outrageous SRT Hellcat, a supercar version of the Charger boasting 707 horsepower. Vast passenger room, available all-wheel drive, and solid construction make the Dodge Charger a reasonable choice for buyers who need the room of a large car but don’t want to give up power or performance in the process. The standard V6 engine and smooth 8-speed automatic transmission are a fine team that we think will satisfy the majority of buyers both in terms of acceleration and, surprisingly, fuel economy. Those with the need for speed will find the R/T and SRT models quite invigorating, though they have a copious thirst for fuel.
