Our Opinion - 2022 Dodge Charger Review

The only other full-size sedan on the market is the Dodge Charger. The Device is all about swagger, whereas Toyota, Nissan, & Chrysler are all about near-luxury consultations at a reasonable price point. We described the Charger as “in their face, unwavering, and, yeah, a little offensive” while it was equipped with a Hellcat Widebody engine. This Avalon is nothing like the one you remember from your childhood.

The Dodge Charger has more V-8 choices under the hood than some automakers have in their entire product lines. If you’re willing to shell out a little more money, you’ll get tire smoke on demand as well as an unmistakable burble

whenever you shift gears. Even with the wide body cars’ improved suspension and tires, performance is still best tested in a straight line. These vehicles aren’t terrible in turns, but their forte is highway overtaking at high speeds.

The Charger is a practical car, despite its lack of impressive standard active safety features or excellent crashworthiness ratings. The Uconnect infotainment system is among the most user-friendly on the market, and there’s plenty of room for passengers and cargo. As a full-size sedan, the Avalon is with us top pick, but the Charger is an obvious choice for those that want a 4 muscle car that will make you feel special.

Once you can start driving the only muscle sedan in the industry, why go to the gym? Mopar’s big-shouldered four-door is the Dodge Charger. The current generation of the Dodge Charger was introduced in 2011 and received a mid-cycle facelift in 2015. 

The only new feature for 2022 is a Deluxe Safety alarm, which is available on lower trims and standard on greater models. Despite its four-door muscle, the Charger competes with the General Motors 300, Toyota Onyx, and Nissan Maxima in the full-size sedan market.


  • The swagger of a muscle car.
  • V-8s that roar and smoke the tires.
  • An easy-to-use infotainment configuration.


  • Not your typical active safety system.
  • Poor V-8 fuel economy.
  • Fast and furious is the way to go.

In terms of engine options, the Dodge Charger is unmatched. This year’s Charger Hellcat Redeye features a whopping 650 horsepower from a supercharged V-8, in addition to the long-standing Pentastar V-6. All models come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission mated to their respective engines. 

Six-cylinder Chargers have the option of all-wheel drive (AWD), which is standard on most models.

  • Rear-wheel drive vs. all-wheel drive
  • The 3.6-liter V-6 engine
  • 290-300 hp/260-264 lb-ft of torque are available.
  • 18-19/27-30 mpg* (city/highway)
  • 0-60 mph time: 6.4 seconds

  • 370 hp/395 lb-ft of torque
  • City/Highway mileage: 16/25 mpg*
  • Rapidity (from zero to sixty miles per hour): 5.3 seconds
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • 6.4-liter V-8
  • 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque
  • 15/24 mpg* on city/highway driving.

  • Rear-wheel drive

  • MPG (miles per gallon): 12 city, 21 highway*
  • 0-60 mph acceleration in 4.0 seconds

The Charger does not perform well in safety testing. A Marginal score in the driver’s window side impact front crash test, but a great score in the other 4 crashworthiness tests, was awarded by the IIHS in testing. Even worse, its headlights have been rated as “Poor,” the lowest possible rating. In terms of overall safety, the NHTSA gives the Charger a five-star overall rating with a 4 frontal crash rating.

Active safety features aren’t standard, but the driver-assistance technology you’d anticipate in a modern car can be added to most trims. 

Flexible steering, emergency braking, lane departure assist, oblivious monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are included in the Technology Group package for all but the Hellcat & Hellcat Redeye. The blind-spot & cross-traffic features are standard on Hellcat models.

The Charger is one of the largest sedans on the market, and its size is rewarded by a roomy interior. The Charger’s trunk is slightly larger than that of the segment’s top-selling Toyota Avalon.

In The Trunk:

  • The Dodge Charger 2022 has a displacement of 16.5 cubic feet
  • Twenty-fifth-century Corolla Avalon: 16.1 cu ft
  • In the first and second rows, there is ample legroom
  • 41.8/40.1-inches in the 2022 Dodge Charger
  • Toyota Arden: 42.1/40.3 inches long and height.

Each and every Charger has an 8.4-inch centre touchscreen with Android Auto Auto support, despite the SXT’s 7.0-inch screen. Six-speaker audio is standard in the entry-level models, while 9 & 19-speaker options are available.

Hellcat V-8s have transformed Dodge’s Challenger and Charger lineups since they were introduced in 2015, and they haven’t looked back. Besides the Demon drag-strip unique and the near-800-horsepower Redeye variants, Dodge has released the Hellcat V-8 in some less evident vehicles since then. In addition to the Deflect Durango, Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk, & Ram 1500 TRX—our upcoming Truck of the Year—we’ve seen wacky ideas like the Jeep Full size pickup Trailcat.

The top-of-the-line Charger Hellcat Redeye costs more than twice as much as the entry-level Charger SXT ($83,000 vs. $32,000). As a result, which version makes the most sense depends largely on your financial situation. We’d spend our money on the Scat Pack Widebody, which is expected to sell for $50,000.

However, you get a roaring V-8, wide wheel arches, and a lot more supercharger noise for your money with a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Additionally, the Scat Bundle is the most strong power supply you can buy with advanced driver assist aids, making it the best option.

New Jailbreak options for 2022 Charger SRT Hellcat Return flight Widebody models are available. Customers can choose from a variety of options to customize their 4 muscle cars with this option.

In addition to the seven wheel options, there are six stripe and calliper options, five seat options, and 4 steering wheel options to choose from. 

Among the Jailbreak-exclusive features are Hammerhead Grey Laguna lambskin seats, Black Nickel combustion tip finish, blue and yellow brake callipers, and a Jailbreak emblem on the instrument panel. Even better, power is increased to 807 horsepower.
