Dodge Charger

Dodge Charger

  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.

Charger and 300 facelift coming in 2011

The new fuel-economy regulations gave a lot of trouble to all auto-makers and made them give up to a lot of RWD models,but it seems that Chrysler will keep its RWD LX platform around for the next-generation Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger.

According to TheCarConnection, the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger will receive a major makeover for the 2011 model year, but the company has no money to switch to front-wheel drive, even if this could improve the fuel economy.

The revamp in the works for the early part of the next decade will be fairly substantial. Chrysler is said to have decided that a bold styling statement is critical to the lineup’s sales success–but certain features of the car, like its low roofline, will change to give the cars a more updated look.

While other cars were grabbing the headlines at Monterey two weeks ago, RM Auctions hit a big number for the original Dodge Charger, a concept car first displayed in 1964. The Charger sold for $1.1 million dollars. At that, however, the car brought less than the pre-auction estimate, which had predicted bids between $1.5 and $2.0 million. The price, however, actually seems astronomical for what is, in many ways, a production based show car. Unlike the Oldsmobile Oldsmobile F-88 and Pontiac Pontiac  (...)

But back then no one expected that this car will become the most expensive car ever auctioned. The auction closed at $9,900,500 at 1:00 pm Friday. eBay had to stopped tha auction once to remove fake bids when the price hit the $6 million dollar range, and after that bidders were required to register before making a play for the car.

So what if 1969 was its year? A general never gets old, even more, in this case, it will allways be young and impressive. If you don’t believe me, check out what this old general still can do. Enjoy!

The 2007 Dodge Charger is a modern-styled, four-door coupe that combines rear-wheel-drive muscle car power, sports car handling and leading-edge technology to deliver a thrilling driving experience. New for 2007 are optional all-wheel-drive models that offer best-in-passenger-car, four-season traction.

The Dodge Charger - one of the biggest names from the muscle car era - has powered its way back to streets and racetracks across America, paying homage to the muscle cars of the ’60s, and adding 21st century performance and functionality.

You all remember the "General Lee" from "The duke of Hazard", and how couldn’t you remember that beauty? But now try to answer me something: how could anyone make something like this to a car? A 1969 Dodge Charger transformed into a 4x4 is the badest idea ever! But someone did it and as you can see in the photo is very proud of his car!
