2017 Dodge Charger Walk Around

The Charger shape might harken back to the sixties, but its short overhangs and big wheels are contemporary. The 2015 refreshing didn’t alter the length, but made it appear more compact and aggressive, with blunt front and rear ends. The rear flanks appear smoother and less bulbous, and the wrap to big LED taillamps is slightly tapered.

The profile hasn’t changed much in 10 years. The view from the side is of swollen rear fenders, a high beltline, and pillars with hard edges.

In front the nose is low, while a black grille and headlamp surround gives it a storm-trooper look. The racetrack taillamps date to the sixties (although not LED back then); red light piping shapes an outline around the rear end. The smooth rear bumper integrates the tailpipes nicely.

Each model has its own tweaks. We like the R/T’s balance of aggression and restraint.

Interior

The big Charger is comfortable for four, although the rear seat is tighter than might be expected from a full-size sedan, although the space to stretch is decent. The high window line limits visibility, but the upright packaging results in good headroom. The wide front seats with aggressive bolstering are race-inspired. The available retro hounds-tooth cloth upholstery isn’t. But Nappa leather is also available.

The interior is simple, but rates a 7 for comfort, quality and technology. The surfacing is subtle, with soft-touch materials and trim accents in matte metallic. A 7.0-inch display screen is standard on the SE, while other models use the Chrysler 8.4-inch touchscreen. The Charger is let down in upper models that don’t upgrade the dashboard, center console, and door materials that are okay at $35,000 in the SXT, but not at $55,000 in the SRT.

The interior is quiet, while allowing the satisfying soft rumble of the Hemi V8 into the cabin.
