Dodge Charger’s production started in the sixties. First models of this car were only show models that were presented in 1964, but only two years later the first production model started rolling down the American roads. Immediately it received a lot of attention and similar situation is with the potential 2016 Dodge Charger car and features it could bring.
Its nameplate was used for various car models from hatchbacks to sedans and luxury coupes. At the moment seventh generation Charger is on the roll and everybody expects its new 2016 Dodge Charger model, since the 2015th model was offered as all new version it is quite obvious that 2016th version will come with only small changes or even as a carryover. Switch to RWD platform from a regular Chrysler LX one that was based on since 2011 it now comes a much complete vehicle.
Accept this rumor about platform changes since there is no other information’s about new Charger looks, interior or performance. So we’ll need to improvise and guess what the new model is going to look like. We think that with a possible platform change and last year’s update that didn’t go really well and that made 2015 model look like longer and wider Dodge Dart, Chrysler is definitely going to work on this model’s exterior. Last year’s update featured smaller grille, glossy crosshair and squint headlights in the front end and probably the shape and size of the grille is going to be the thing that’s going to make this model to look less like Dart.
2016 Dodge Charger Price
It is hard to guess the price of the 2016 Dodge Charger since prices for 2015 model are not out yet. Base model will probably cost around $28,000, while the SRT version will come with a large increase and go as high as $50,000. Hellcat if it is going to be introduced it all will become this model’s top trim and its price won’t come under $55,000.
Interior of the 2016 Dodge Charger is probably going to come with some larger changes. One of the things that is going to stay the same is its new steering wheel, updated in 2015, which is the same one that you can find in Dodge Durango. Base version of 2015 model came with 5.4 inch infotainment display, with possibility to upgrade it to 8.4 inches one. We hope that in the new model 8.4 inches display is going to come as a standard option in base version or some higher trim level. If this happens Chrysler will have our eternal gratitude. New 2016 Dodge Charger is also going to come with last year introduced Uconnect software that deals with vast variety of connectivity options from Bluetooth and voice control to voice text messages, turning car in a Wi Fi hotspot and 3D navigation system. All done by the new software integration and all that sounds quite impressive.
Most important segment when it comes to these muscle models is of course the performance. Last year model came with two newly retuned engines. Under the base version’s hood there was a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 thatwas able to produce 300 horsepower and 262 pound feet of torque and it gets 31 mpg on the highway which is really impressive for its class. Top of the line engine is the 5.7 liter HEMI V8, this beast comes with 370 horsepower and 395 pound feet of torque. There are also rumors about introducing a Charger Hellcat model. Since we know that the Challenger Hellcat is at the moment the most powerful muscle car on the market we can expect the same if not even more from this model’s version. This on the other hand means that Chrysler decided to place all the additional horsepower and torque into the new Hellcat project, which means that regular Charger will probably come with the mentioned two engines from last year.
