The era of the muscle car—big, beefy, and powerful cars that were big on power and bombast—is largely over. Today, even SUVs and pickups are often marketed for their sensible designs, and the biggest selling point for many vehicles is that they are quiet, comfortable, and reasonably designed.
For anyone who’s nostalgic for the muscle car era or who wishes they had lived in the era where big and powerful was the style of the day for cars, there’s still a vehicle out there for you. The Dodge Charger is, in many ways, the last American muscle car: a big, beefy, and powerful ride for people who love to rev their engines and have the whole neighborhood hear them coming. If this sounds like you, here’s why you should stop by our Indianapolis Dodge dealership and check out the 2018 Dodge Charger.
2018 Dodge Charger
The current production run for the Dodge Charger began more than a decade ago and, since it began, Dodge has been tweaking and refining the design. The result of those refinements and updates is the 2018 Dodge Charger, a spacious, powerful vehicle with lots of attitude that still manages to offer drivers a surprising amount of agility.
One of the main features of the 2018 Dodge Charger includes two different options for engines: a 292-to-300-hp V-6 and a 370- and 485-hp Hemi V-8. While the first option is certainly a respectable engine, the Hemi V-8 is where the real power is and is the obvious choice for anyone who wants to make the most out of their Charger. Combine that with the Charger’s rear-wheel-drive capabilities and eight-speed automatic transmission, and you have the potential for one powerful ride.
In keeping with the Charger’s role in the modern marketplace as a throwback to the classic muscle cars, the 2018 Dodge Charger also comes with lots of optional upgrades to trick it out and make it stand out from all the boring sedans and family hybrids on the road. These include spoilers, scoops, updated wheel designs, and optional paint schemes that let you personalize your vehicle and give it some real character.
Upgrades for 2018
The 2018 Dodge Charger isn’t much different from the last version, but there are some notable changes and upgrades. All 2018 versions of the Charger come with a standard backup camera and rear parking assist feature, while the Charger GT AWD (formerly the SXT V-6) sports 19-inch aluminum wheels, gloss-black exterior trim, and an impressive Uconnect 8.4 infotainment system. Even the standard version of the 2018 Dodge Charger includes the Uconnect 4, which comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Additionally, the SXT Plus comes with the Super Track Pack, which includes several modifications, including functional hood scoop, body-side cladding, and 20-inch wheels, as well as three-mode stability control, retuned steering, shift paddles, performance suspension, and tires that offer improved traction.
