Since it was first unleashed on the market way back in 1966, The Dodge Charger has become a reference in the field of American performance cars. For the 2019 model-year, the muscle car is back with intentions of solidifying its place in a segment that’s gotten smaller in recent years. Six versions are available in all, starting with the value-oriented SXT and leading up to the monstrous SRT Hellcat, 707 hp of fury and priced to match.
Distinction and modernity
The way we see it, the Charger is one of the most attractive sedans to be found on the market. Our tester was the Charger SXT AWD, on which it’s possible to add the Blacktop package we’re already familiar with and have seen evolve over the years.
You can pick from several different colour schemes for your new Charger as well, some of them more in-your-face than others. We drove one of those, painted in an attention-grabbing blue pearl finish – though we have to admit our favourite is the F8 Green Metallic colour, which really suits the car well.
The Charger STX AWD is not quite the aggressive-looking machine that the more-performance-focused Chargers are, but stick the Blacktop package on it and it certainly takes on a more menacing appearance. That package includes a glossy black rear spoiler, special black emblem, side-view mirrors, accents and insignias, as well as 20-inch wheels.
