The name Charger (war horse) appeared in the Dodge model line back in 1965 – this is how the then “charged” version of the compact 2-door coupe Dart was dubbed.

By the late 1960s, the Charger became a cult name: one of the famous muscle cars of the era. In the 2011 model year, the latest generation Charger appeared on the North American market, which was not officially represented in Europe and in our country. It’s a shame: an interesting phenomenon among the full-size sports sedans.

The modern Charger is an exemplary badge engineering product. That is, it is a neatly redesigned Chrysler 300. Well, the approach is proven. Moreover, the “war horse” looks quite original: in press releases, the Charger is presented as a 4-door fastback coupe.

The athletic Dodge does indeed feature an elegantly sloping roofline, as well as a false radiator with a distinctive telescopic crosshair and sculpted sidewall relief. A sports sedan ready for combat. And some think the Charger looks something like the hypothetical 4-door Nissan GT-R.

The “Charger” has a long wheelbase, and the cabin is spacious: landing in the front and (three of us) in the 2nd row is quite free. Interior rear shoulder width 146.5 cm with unmeasured legroom. And yet, tall passengers in the back are not particularly comfortable: the ceiling is low because of the sloping roofline. The interior of the sports sedan is decorated at a “premium” level.

Around first-class finishing materials: expensive plastics, fabric (in not the most expensive versions) seat upholstery of decent quality and attractive texture. The multifunctional sports steering wheel (with a cut-off lower segment) is adjustable in tilt angle and reach, and the front seats are adjustable not only longitudinally, but also in height.

For those who understand, the Charger is of particular interest in the “charged” version of the SRT8 with the mighty “eight” Hemi 392 under the hood. American car reviewers drove the sports sedan around the range in just this version – on 245 / 45R20 Goodyear Eagle RS-A2 all-season tires.

The acceleration dynamics are impressive: from a standstill, the massive test car picks up a speed of 96.5 km / h (60 miles) in just 4.3 seconds. Burns rubber under the inimitable roar of Hemi… And the standard distance of 1/4 mile (402 m) “warhorse” made in 12.8 seconds. and at the end of the measured segment reached a speed of 185.85 km / h. And the maximum speed of “Charger”, according to tests, exceeds 280 km / h.
