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
