The sixth-generation Dodge Charger, reborn nineteen years later as a full-size four-door, debuted in 2006 as the successor to the Intrepid three-box model.

In 2009, the car underwent an interim update, in the course of the exterior, interior and power palette were affected.

In 2014, the premiere of the second updated sedan took place, which was seriously prettier outside and inside and got an 8-band “automatic”.

The Dodge Charger looks impressive and deliberately aggressive – a frightening front end with an evil look of optics and a large radiator grille, a “muscular” profile with sweeping outlines and “inflated” wheel arches, a monumental stern with lanterns stretched across the entire width and a massive bumper with a diffuser. From whatever angle you look, the appearance of the “American” is attractive, moderately solid and unambiguously sporty.

“Charger” of the 6th generation belongs to the class of full-size sedans (F-class according to European standards): 5040 mm in length, 1479 mm in height and 1905 mm in width. The wheelbase of the car has a solid 3052 mm, and the ground clearance is a modest 124 mm.

The decoration of the “sixth” Dodge Charger is not replete with an overabundance of original solutions, but it looks beautiful, expensive and sporty. The three-spoke steering wheel with relief outlines is crowned with control elements, the dashboard with two “wells” and a colored display is elegant and informative, and the massive console in the center flaunts an 8.4-inch “TV” of the multimedia complex and an ergonomically arranged climate “control”.

Inside, the car is spacious thanks to the impressive wheelbase – there is plenty of free space in both the front and rear seats. In the first case, comfortable armchairs with a good side profile and ample opportunities for adjustments are installed, and in the second – a hospitable sofa, molded for two. The sixth-generation Dodge Charger has a spacious luggage compartment – in the “stowed” state, it holds 467 liters of luggage. The three-volume “hold” captivates with a decent opening and well-thought-out configuration.

For the “Charger” a wide range of power plants is offered, combined with an 8-band “automatic” and rear-wheel-drive transmission (with the base engine there is also an all-wheel-drive system with automatically connected front wheels).

Under the hood of the starting version, a 3.6-liter V6 engine with multipoint fuel injection and a 24-valve timing is “registered”, generating 296 horsepower at 6350 rpm and 353 Nm of available thrust at 4800 rpm. The next in the hierarchy of the R / T execution is the V-shaped eight-cylinder HEMI unit with a variable valve timing mechanism, distributed injection and a system for deactivating part of the “pots”, which, with a volume of 5.7 liters, produces 375 “mares” at 5250 rpm and 536 Nm of maximum torque at 4200 rpm.
