2018 dodge charger 

So you've decided to get the new 2018 Dodge Charger. That's great; now let's look at all the different options you can choose from to make your Charger your own.

This car has an amazing amount of power, style, and a ton of options to choose from in order to customize it to your liking. It is not a boring car. The 2018 Dodge Charger has amazing color options with fun names like Maximum Steel, Go Mango, and White Knuckle! You should only choose this car if you want power. It comes with a V6 engine by default, but you can choose from a few V8 options to give you even more oomph.

Now let's appeal to the sensible, responsible side of you. Yes, you can get the 2018 Dodge Charger for all of the reasons listed above, but it is also a practical car. It has four doors with a roomy and comfortable interior and a ton of safety features for your family. You can choose from many different comforts to tailor the Charger to your tastes and the technology inside is some of the best out there. You will also be able to get an all-wheel drive for when you are driving in tough conditions.

For the 2018 version of the Dodge Charger, some of the trim levels and standard features have been moved around. If you want an all-wheel-drive model, you will look for a GT. The SXT (base model) now comes standard with a touchscreen that is 7 inches across and has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay across. Rearview cameras and rear parking sensors come standard on all models and the SRT Hellcat trim comes with a new design on the grille and has new finishes for the wheels and brake calipers.

You will probably want to get the most powerful V8-powered Charger you can afford. The R/T will give you a power driver seat and Bluetooth as well as heated seats. These luxuries are great, but the best part is the 370-horsepower V8 engine. You should try to add the premium package so you can get the driver assistance features and audio upgrade it includes.

Trims

The 2018 Dodge Charger has many trims from which to choose. The trims are as follows: the SXT, the SXT Plus, the GT, the GT Plus, the R/T, the Daytona, the R/T Scat Pack, the Daytona 392, the SRT 392, and the SRT Hellcat. The SXT and GT trims have the V6 engine while the rest of them come with V8 engines that increase in power. Rear-wheel drive comes standard but you can get all-wheel drive on the GT trims.

If you choose the SXT, you will get a 3.6-liter V6 engine that gives you 292 horsepower and 260 pounds per foot of torque, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. You will get a lot of features standard on this option. These include the Uconnect infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, rearview camera and rear parking sensors, keyless entry/ignition, 17-inch alloy wheels, , a power driver seat, a folding back seat (60/40 split), Bluetooth, voice controls, Apple CarPlay, USB ports, the ability to integrate Android smartphones, and a six-speaker stereo system that comes with satellite radio.

If you choose the SXT Plus, you will get 18-inch wheels, fog lights that are LED, mirrors that are heated, climate control that is not only automatic but dual-zone, heated sports seats, cloth upholstery, auto-dimming rearview, an HD radio, a Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker stereo.

The SXT Plus also has standalone packages such as the Super Track Pak that makes the engine power greater (300 horsepower and 264 pounds per foot of torque) and gives you more features. You can choose to get a navigation system, a sunroof, and a 10-speaker Beats Audio system added to your Charger.

Now we will look at the GT models, which have all-wheel drive. They also give you ventilated sport front seats, leather upholstery, xenon headlights, rear seats that are heated, rear-cross traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring. The GT models are a small step up from the SXT plus.

The R/T is similar to the SXT but it has a 5.7-liter V8 engine instead that will get you 370 horsepower and 395 pounds per foot of torque. The R/T also has brakes that are upgraded, transmission paddle shifters, 20-inch wheels, and a sport-tuned suspension.

The Charger Daytona will get you the R/T's exterior styling and interior trim, but will upgrade your performance suspension even further than before. You will get forged alloy wheels and upholstery that is made of leather and faux suede. This also gives you many different features from the Plus Group and from the Premium Group as well.

The R/T Scat Pack gives you a 6.4-liter V8 engine that has 485 horsepower and 475 pounds per foot of torque. This pack also gives you Brembo brakes, a suspension that has settings that are more aggressive, eight-way power front seats, leather, optional faux upholstery, heated rear seats, and heated/ventilated front seats.

The Daytona 392 allows you to combine the Daytona features with the R/T Scat Pack features and has more upgraded brakes.

If you decide to go with the SRT 392, you will add to the R/T Scat Pack in the following ways: Pirelli tires, forged alloy wheels, an adaptive suspension, upgraded brakes (from the Daytona 392), blind-spot monitoring, xenon headlamps, rear-cross traffic alert, leather upholstery, a power adjusted steering column, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and Uconnect nav system. You can also get the Technology Group as an option.

The final trim level we will look at is the SRT Hellcat that gives you the SRT 392 features but adds a V8 that is supercharged which gives you 707 horsepower and 650 pounds per foot of torque. You will also get upgraded steering and suspension tuning with all of the above-mentioned options. You will get the power adjustable steering column if you get the Power Convenience Group.
