The most interesting aspect of the 2016 Dodge Charger is that while it looks like the muscular machine you would want to take out to the track and burn some rubber, it’s actually a lot more family-friendly than its reputation suggests.
The four-door sedan easily lures with its clean, modern lines, and a nostalgic soda-bottle shape. Inside, though, it’s every bit as comfortable as your everyday car. To be clear, though, it looks and feels nothing like an everyday ride.
For one, even its most basic trim level, the SE, comes with some moxie, given its Pentastar 3.6-liter, V-6 engine, with 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but you can opt for an all-wheel version.
There are several other engine variants, such as the R/T trim level, the R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392, and the SRT Hellcat. As you may have guessed, the higher up the trim level you go, the meatier the engine specs become. It all depends on your preference, but none of the options change anything about the car’s family friendliness.
Inside the Charger
The Charger interior is not to be outdone by its exterior. For one, it is not partial to size. Fidgety little ones or lanky six-footers should be able to appreciate its roominess. Even the doors and roofline have been designed ergonomically to make entry and exit smoother. Whether child or adult, the plush, soft-touch materials on the upholstery and trims will make it hard to step out once reaching your destination.
Overall, the 2016 Dodge Charger is the one car that begs you to drive it while welcoming your family—all the while looking good. Visit a Dodge dealer near Las Cruces, NM, for more details about the Charger.
