The Dodge Charger has a long history as an exceedingly in-demand performance vehicle. In previous decades, drivers wanted one so that they could customize it and squeeze every ounce of performance out of it. Now, there are eight Dodge Charger trim levels to choose from that meet the needs and wants of Charger owners. If you are into high-performance vehicles, then try exploring the 2018 Dodge Charger trim levels.
Dodge Charger SXT
The base version of the Charger is the Dodge Charger SXT. It is a great option if you want to do many of the upgrades yourself but start with a good base model. It comes equipped with the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera system and ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System. They both help you when you need to back up or park your car in tight spots. Having these systems is great for avoiding accidents and keeping your Charger in pristine condition. It also comes equipped with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, and LED fog lamps are available.
Dodge Charger GT AWD
For an upgraded version, you can try the Dodge Charger GT AWD. It comes standard with a 300hp 3.6L Pentastar® V6 Engine for added power. It will bring you much closer to the muscle car that drivers were looking for in previous decades. Despite the extreme horsepower, the Charger GT AWD maintains good gas mileage ratings of up to 27 mpg highway. The Dodge Charger GT AWD also has an advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) system with Front Axle Disconnect which allows it to manage its power distribution more effectively. The infotainment is an upgraded Uconnect® 8.4-Inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ support.
Dodge Charger R/T
For even more power and control, try the Dodge Charger R/T. It comes with a 370hp 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine which provides racer-level engine performance. Combined with the Electronically Controlled Active Exhaust, it effectively generates enough power to hit racing speeds with minimal effort. The Uconnect® 4C system includes an 8.4-Inch touchscreen and SiriusXM Guardian™ support, as well as Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® support. However, it also has integrated Uconnect voice command, Bluetooth® streaming audio, and SiriusXM® satellite radio which give you a range of options for controlling your infotainment system in new and creative ways.
Dodge Charger Daytona
The next step up is the Dodge Charger Daytona. It shares some of the same features with the R/T including the engine and active exhaust but gets several new performance features. It has access to the Dodge Performance Pages system which helps you monitor its performance in different situations. This is great if you are planning on racing and making modifications. Combined with a three-mode electronic stability control (ESC) system and performance-tuned suspension, the Charger Daytona performs more like a racecar than a street car.
Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
The top-of-the-line model is the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, which has the best performance stats by far. It has a 707hp supercharged 6.2L HEMI® SRT Hellcat V8 Engine that was custom-designed for extremely high performance. Combined with Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear ultra-high-performance brakes and the SRT®-tuned Bilstein® three-mode adaptive damping system, the SRT Hellcat can easily handle all 707hp that it can create.
The Dodge Charger can outperform nearly every vehicle that it comes across. Check it out at your nearest Dodge dealer today.
