Dodge Charger’s integrated safety and security features provide exceptional occupant protection on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Dodge Charger a five-star rating for driver and front-passenger protection in a frontal crash, the highest rating in the U.S. government’s safety crash-test program.

“The new Dodge Charger is all about celebrating the American muscle car and going places in something special,” said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President — Design, Chrysler Group. “Dodge Charger makes a statement about the owner’s zeal for life and for beautiful things.”

Design


Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Design: “The flavor of the American muscle car is evident in the 2007 Dodge Charger, yet it has its own unique, modern character. The updated coupe styling and fastback design create a modern statement of power with all the versatility of a four-door sedan.”

Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Design: “Designers sculpted a bold, stunning four-door coupe with the aggressive performance to back up the Charger name. Clearly a Dodge, it will not be mistaken for any other car on the street or track.”

Dodge Charger

The 2007 Dodge Charger is a fresh execution of modern muscle with the convenience and interior capacity of a full-size passenger car. Boasting the longest wheelbase in its class, the Charger features room for five adults and enough trunk space to meet the demands of active lifestyles. Dodge Charger’s seating position is more than 2 inches higher than the previous-generation Dodge sedan, which gives a comfortable command-of-the-road view for driver and front passenger.

The exterior design of the Dodge Charger features a long, muscular character line that defines the front corners, runs back to the rear door and makes way for a large rear fender, which gives notice that the car is rear-wheel-drive powered. The profile of the Dodge Charger’s roofline and the sloping fastback style suggest a sense of speed, while the front end is strong with a sinister sneer.

Interior Features

Much of what holds about the Charger’s exterior carries over to its interior, only more so. Where the outside only suggests other Chrysler and Dodge cars, the inside looks as if it’s been lifted, locks, steering column and bucket seats from the Magnum, with a fixture and feature here and there brought over from a Dakota or a Durango.

Dodge Charger

The dash and instrument cluster is identical to the Magnum’s, with the minor exception of surface trims on the center stack and center console, and when ordered on the R/T, the navigation display. This isn’t to complain, but to compliment, as the arrangement is pleasantly informative. From the driver’s seat, easily scanned, large, round speedometer and tachometer share the top half of the steering wheel opening, with fuel and coolant temperature gauges down in the left and right corners, respectively.


Engines


Craig Love, Vice President – Rear-Wheel Drive Platform Team: “Modern technologies allowed us to bring a 21st century muscle car to market with the ride-and-handling characteristics inherent in rear-wheel drive. And, new for 2007, the Dodge Charger lineup includes all-wheel-drive models that add outstanding performance and stability under all driving conditions.”

The new 2007 Dodge Charger all-wheel-drive models provide excellent cornering balance under all driving conditions and improved traction in snow and wet-weather conditions. By driving continuously through all four wheels, the all-wheel-drive system, combined with standard ESP, all-speed TCS and four-wheel ABS, adds outstanding performance and stability under all traction conditions.

Dodge Charger

The 2007 Dodge Charger rear-wheel-drive models feature outstanding performance and handling, near 50-50 weight distribution and unique suspensions that provide just the right level of driving characteristics for all Charger customers. New for 2007 is the available 2.7-liter V-6 engine that offers an outstanding combination of performance, durability and fuel economy.

The optional Road/Track Performance Group has been enhanced for the 2007 Dodge Charger and offers larger 245/45ZR20 all-season performance tires and 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels. Tuned for firmer handling, this package is available on the 2007 V-8 HEMI-powered Charger R/T model. Package items include perforated seats with preferred suede inserts; automatic temperature control; heated front seats; eight-way power front-passenger seat; express up-down front windows; automatic headlamps; rear deck lid and front fascia spoilers; load-leveling and height-control shocks; and performance suspension, steering, brakes, exhaust and induction system.

Dodge Charger

The modern 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with MDS has been engineered to deliver outstanding performance, reduced noise, vibration and harshness, and improved fuel economy of up to 20 percent. This engine will offer Dodge Charger customers the legendary HEMI power they want with fuel economy they will appreciate.

Aluminum cylinder heads with hemispherical combustion chambers permit outstanding airflow, which leads to 340 horsepower (254 kW) @ 5000 rpm and 390 lb.-ft. torque (525 Nm) @ 4000 rpm. Dodge Chargers equipped with HEMI engines can go from zero to 60 mph in just 6.0 seconds.
