Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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

The 2018 Nissan Maxima is a zippier alternative to more traditional full-size cars, but we stop short of calling it a real sports sedan.

Pros
Daring styling
Comfortable interior
Superlative safety record
Strong V-6 engine
Taut feel

Cons
Not exactly thrilling to drive
Less-than-refined powertrain
Styling not for everyone
More cramped than size suggests

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Maxima adds Android Auto to its lengthy list of standard features. An SR Midnight Edition (with blacked-out wheels and exterior styling elements, among other upgrades) will debut later in the model year. Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking became standard partway through the 2017 model year and carry forward into 2018.

PROS
Well-made and attractive cabin rivals those of luxury-branded sedans
Tech controls are easy to use
Lots of features for the money
Sharp handling for a midsize sedan

CONS
SR trim level's firm ride
All-wheel drive is not available
High price given the car's size and Nissan badge
Back seat and trunk aren't very spacious
