What's New for the 2018 Dodge Charger?

As noted by Car and Driver, the 2018 Dodge Charger is the last four door muscle car that remains in production. With Chevrolet ending production for the Chevy SS, as a result of the closing of Holden in 2018, the Charger now offers unrivaled performance as a beefed-up American sedan. For 2018, each Charger, starting with the base model, comes standard with a backup camera and rear parking sensors. The horsepower range of the Charger is now wider thanks to the abundance in trim levels available to the market. Standard to premium model Chargers all come with Dodge's UConnect infotainment system.

Bolstered performance seats, 12-way adjustable seats, heated seats, and ventilated seats can be had as options on the Charger.
