User-friendly infotainment system

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
