Excellent Sync 3 infotainment system

Platinum trim's interior quality surpasses that of some luxury cars
Interior remains quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Lurches forward unpleasantly when the gas engine kicks on
Sleek roofline reduces rear visibility and headroom
Fuel economy figures aren't as high as rival hybrid sedans

The 2019 Dodge Charger isn't a sensible car for sensible drivers. Instead, it's for drivers who want a car that looks cool, makes cool noises, goes obscenely fast and comes in colors such as Go Mango, Plum Crazy, TorRed and White Knuckle. If you're looking for something state-of-the-art, fuel-efficient, refined and anonymously styled, the Charger is not your car.

Pros
Powerful V8 engines available, including the one for the 707-hp Hellcat
Trim levels and graphics packages allow for plenty of personalization
Infotainment is user-friendly and features a large touchscreen

Cons
Fit and finish not always on par with some competitors
Sloping roofline impedes visibility and rear-seat access
V8 engines can be thirsty when driven with enthusiasm

Aging gracefully, the 2019 Dodge Charger can be a V-6 family sedan or a genuine American muscle car.

Pros
A V-8 and rear-wheel drive are always fun
V-6 is reasonably powerful and efficient
Ride and handling still impress
Appealing looks
Infotainment remains as intuitive as any on the market

Cons
V-8s are heavy and thirsty
Low-buck base interior trim
V-8 doesn't offer AWD
Old design getting older
