KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Scott Oldham -- Contributing Editor


Family-friendly 4-door sedans don’t get more rambunctiously pulse-quickening and unapologetic than America’s full-size 2017 Dodge Charger. With over a half-dozen trim choices, and available all-wheel drive, the 2017 Charger offers a bold motoring statement in a wide variety of flavors, the latest in-cabin technology, road-warrior styling and a lengthy assortment of options. Four engines are available ranging from a 292-horsepower fuel-efficient V6 to the Charger Hellcat’s supercharged Hemi V8 that makes a mind-blowing 707 horsepower. It’s the most powerful American car ever. It’s not the only domestic sedan with performance and style but, with its arrogant attitude and generous bang-for-the-buck, the alternatives -- Chevrolet Impala, Buick LaCrosse, Ford Fusion -- just don’t have the in-your-face appeal and that kind of optional power.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want a full-size, family-friendly 4-door sedan with a 5-star safety rating from NHTSA, but refuse to do generic, you’ll like the 2017 Dodge Charger. The new Charger uniquely combines comfort, interior room and technology with aggressive styling, horsepower to spare and just enough attitude to keep the mice away.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If fuel economy is more important to you than tire-shredding horsepower, you should be shopping other sedans. Also, not everyone is comfortable with the Charger’s bodybuilder bod. If you’re concerned about standing out on the road or in the company parking lot, you might consider something less, well, noticeable.

What's New for 2017

New for 2017 are the Charger Daytona and Daytona 392 models, which pack the look of the top-of-the-line Hellcat but with naturally aspirated Hemi power. Graphics, 20-inch wheels and more powerful brakes are standard. SXT and up models get an all-new Uconnect infotainment system with a larger 8.4-inch screen.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 3.6-liter, 292-horsepower V6 in the 2017 Dodge Charger SE and SXT offers plenty of punch with either rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). The standard 8-speed automatic transmission is smooth and doesn’t annoyingly hunt for gears. It’s a compelling package, but Chargers get better when you add horsepower, and the 370-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 in the R/T and Daytona is a nice wake-up call. The one to get, however, is the 485-horsepower 6.4-liter in the R/T Scat Pack, Daytona 392 and SRT 392 trims. It’s the best combination of price (especially in the R/T Scat Pack), power and daily drivability. Don’t misunderstand, the 707-horsepower Hellcat Charger has to be experienced to be believed. It will go down in history. Become a legend. But it’s extreme and only makes sense for a few. Overall, the Chargers are smooth and responsive, with an appropriate blend of handling precision and comfortable ride.

Favorite Features

UCONNECT
The new fourth generation of Uconnect is one of the best automotive infotainment systems and one of the easiest to use. Maps are supplied by Garmin, and the Bluetooth connects your phone almost instantaneously. The new system’s larger 8.4-inch screen also allows for phone-style navigation gestures like pinch and swipe.

6.2-LITER HELLCAT SUPERCHARGED V8
There’s no other sedan engine, at any price, that comes close to competing with the 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter, supercharged Hemi in the Hellcat version of the 2017 Charger. It’s the most powerful American sedan of all time. Considering the price, it’s one of the go-fast deals of all time.
