2019 Dodge Charger Gets Performance Upgrades

2019 dodge charger (2)

Large sedans are still in competition with crossovers. Lest we forget about them, Dodge came up with fresh aesthetics and performance upgrades for the 2019 Charger. Sure, we’ve been preoccupied with the Redeye, but we’re sure Dodge has not forgotten that the Charger used to get plenty of attention, too.

For 2019, the high-performing variants of the Dodge Charger will get a new grille with dual air inlets. The grille, however, will only be available with the R/T Scat Pack and Hellcat. The two models will also receive as standard Launch Assist, which can detect driveline-damaging wheel hop at launch and modifies the engine torque to regain grip.

Same with the Challenger SRT Demon, the Charger SRT Hellcat will also receive the After-Run Chiller and the Torque Reserve, as well as new options like the Brass Monkey 20-inch forged wheels, a Satin Black hood, and an Alcantara package. The latter will bring a suede-like material to the sedan’s seats and steering wheel.

The R/T Scat Pack buyers can also opt to have the Bilstein adaptive damping suspension with modes such as Auto, Sport, and Track. There are new exterior colors available and there’s a new Launch Control switch placed on the dashboard.

Performance

There are many different engines for the Charger: the base model gets the 292-horsepower V-6 engine while the Hellcat has a 707-horsepower V-8 engine.

The base model, called the SXT, will come with an all-wheel-drive system, while the new GT gets a rear-drive system. The GT and R/T models, on the other hand, will receive a performance hood, side sills, fascia, and spoiler for the higher variants.

Performance suspension, improved steering, Dodge Performance Pages Pages with the 8.4-inch Uconnect screen, performance bolstered seats, and 20-inch Satin Carbon wheels and Black Noise wheel options are standard for the two trim levels.

The GT gets a top speed of 130 mph while the R/T gets 150 mph.
