2022 Dodge Charger - Everything You Need To Know

The 2022 Dodge Charger can truly do it all with a range of powerful V6 and V8 engines plus safety and space for the whole family. With rear- and all-wheel drive available the 2022 Dodge Challenger is a certified super sedan.

 

Dodge Charger Hellcat Satin Black

 

There's something to suit every taste across the range of eight Dodge Charger models, with the muscular and handsome family sedans taking the form of a smooth V6 cruiser up to the ultra high performance versions which come packing the legendary supercharged Hellcat V8 engine. Offering a range of five potent powertrains in six- and eight-cylinder form, the 2022 Dodge Charger is packed with smart design, the latest technology, and the versatility to return solid fuel economy numbers with the horsepower to take on anything at the track.

 

Speaking of fuel economy, the available all-wheel drive system on V6-engined Dodge Chargers has the ability to disconnect the front axle from the power when you're cruising to give the front-engined, rear-wheel drive character of a true driver's car with the fuel savings that come along with powering two instead of all four wheels. If the road gets slippery and more traction is called for, the front axle comes back online to give you control and confidence whether you're on a gravel road at the cottage or pushing through a snowstorm on the highway.

Add in the Plus Group and you'll up the level of luxury in your Dodge Charger even more, with heated and ventilated front seats wrapped in beautiful Nappa leather with Alcantara suede inserts to grip you through the corners. Also included as part of the plus group is a sportier heated steering wheel, again wrapped in leather and featuring paddle shifters to give you total control of the drive. They say the steering wheel is one of the most important parts of the car, as that's how you find the perfect line at the track, and coupled with the grippy Alcantara this package takes the driving experience of the 2022 Dodge Charger to the next level.

How Much is a Dodge Charger?

The V6-engined Dodge Charger SXT delivers dynamic driving and plenty of room for the whole family starting at just $41,165 which makes it one of the best prices in terms of horsepower, capability, and luxury on the market today. Stepping up from the V6, the Dodge Charger R/T delivers higher performance from the legendary Hemi V8 engine with prices starting at a very reasonable $47,165, or go all out with one of the finest performance sedans ever built in the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody Jailbreak starting at $108,860. With 807 horsepower under your right foot, sport-tuned suspension and Brembo brakes keeping everything in check there won't be a car on the road that can keep up.

Standard Features

 

The 2022 Dodge Charger comes with a host of luxury, performance, and technology features as standard equipment. The power-operated 12-way driver's seat features two-way powered lumbar adjustment, while the leather wrapped steering wheel gives you control of the drive. Dual-zone automatic climate control keeps everybody comfortable out on the road, while the 7-inch touchscreen on the Charger's Uconnect 4 multimedia centre provides hands-free communication with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities. There's another 7-inch screen in the instrument cluster which can be customised to show tire pressures, trip information, fuel economy and safety data. All-wheel drive is available on the Charger SXT and GT for no extra charge.

 

Optional Extras

 
Dodge supplies Charger buyers with an exciting range of performance and safety systems as optional extras to take their vehicles to the next level. Dodge Performance Pages provides software which shows engine status and allows you to fine-tune settings for the motor, transmission, paddle shifters, traction control and steering. It also includes measuring for G-force and acceleration so you can see as well as feel the sporting capabilities of your Charger. Performance Pages data is displayed on the 7-inch Uconnect 4 multimedia touchscreen.

 

Dodge Charger Driver_s Seat

 

On the safety side of things, Dodge provides Charger buyers with options in the form of Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking and adaptive cruise control that can keep a constant distance from the vehicle ahead and bring the Charger to a complete stop if it needs to. Lane departure warning monitors the Charger's position on the road and alerts the driver with corrective steering input and a notification in the instrument cluster if it begins to stray out of its lane, while Park-Sense Rear Park Assist monitors the space behind the car when backing out of a space in a crowded parking lot.
