Best Full-Size Car:

2015 Dodge Charger

Dodge's full-size sedan offering is more versatile than ever after being redesigned for the 2015 model year. With a new look that includes a redesigned hood, front doors, spoiler, taillights and front fascia, the Dodge Charger still offers space for both people and cargo. That combination helps the Charger earn the top resale value in its category.

Starting this year, Dodge will offer four different engines - a 3.6-liter V6, a 5.7-liter V8, a 6.4-liter V8, and an all-new Hellcat supercharged V8 engine -- all mated to an eied automatic transmission. With all these options, Charger models can range from 292 horsepower to an eye-watering 707 horsepower. Even with all that power it's easy to talk with other passengers without having to drown out engine noise with the radio.

Inside, the available 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment and navigation system serves up directions clearly and is easy to interact with. A new 7-inch customizable gauge cluster, a redesigned instrument cluster and a new electronic shifter are other notable changes seen inside. The Charger boasts comfortable seats in regular trim but springing for one of the two available SRT models brings even more supportive seats (along with a bevy of performance features) with it. Speaking of the SRT models, both the SRT 392 and Hellcat models get a trim-exclusive steering wheel and other performance-oriented tweaks.

The 2015 Dodge Charger starts at $27,995 while the Hellcat-equipped model starts at $64,000, which is the deal of the century when you remember its 707-horsepower rating. Combining those power numbers with the versatility to outfit the Charger as you see fit and a high resale value make Dodge's popular sedan a solid choice in a crowded segment.
