The Dodge Charger has appeared in three different platforms since it was produced in 1966. The first was a pony car produced from 1966-1978, the second was a subcompact car made from 1983-1987, and the third and final version is the current sports sedan which began production in 2006. The Charger combines Hemi power with rear-wheel drive and an independent rear suspension.
The current model is powered by a choice of four different engines, but the obvious choice would be the top of the line 6.1L V8 providing 425HP and 420 lb-ft of torque. Other options include a 178HP, 190 lb-ft of torque 2.7L V6 engine, a 250HP, 250 lb-ft of torque 3.5L V6, and a 368/372HP, 391/401 lb-ft of torque 5.7L V8 engine. These engines are mated to either a 4- or 5-speed automatic transmission.
