A host of innovative features and leading-edge technology
Interior quarters are quiet and comfortable
Generous trunk capacity

Evolutionary styling doesn't stand out in a crowded class

The 2018 Dodge Charger ranked #8 in Large Cars. Currently the Dodge Charger has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 53 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful V8 engines
Handles well
Spacious seats
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Rivals have more upscale interiors
Driver visibility is limited
Low predicted reliability rating

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Dodge Charger has aged remarkably well–and if it’s four-door muscle you need, few sedans deliver its performance thrill.

Pros
Terrific V-8/rear-drive fun
V-6 is reasonably powerful and efficient
Ride and handling still impress
Still, an appealing look
Still has better infotainment than any Lexus

Cons
V-8s are heavy and thirsty
Low-buck base interior trim
No V-8/AWD pairing
In the running with the Nissan Frontier as the oldest vehicle on the market
