Dodge Charger

Price $36,545 – $78,695
Fuel consumption 7.8 – 17.6 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 77%(view ratings)
The Dodge Charger is without a doubt the least discrete full-size sedan on our roads—when topped with police car light bars, that is. Sure, the Charger is known for its sporty design, but also for its powerful engines. The basic trim comes with the 3.6L V6 Pentastar, but performance enthusiasts will choose the Hellcat 707-horsepower, 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8. Perfect for burning rubber!
