Overview (Final Score: C)
We like to think that we buy a vehicle with our head, but it’s the opposite. For many, a car purchase is an emotional decision where we consider what kind of image we’re putting out to the world.
Take the. It may be old and trail competitors in key areas such as safety and interior appointments. But the aggressive looks and performance on offer make it a prime target for those who want to stand out.
What We Love About the 2017 Dodge Charger:
- Blacktop appearance package gives the standard model some attitude
- Updated UConnect system
- Surprisingly comfortable and sporty
What We Don’t Love About the 2017 Dodge Charger:
- Dark materials make the interior feel quite small
- Reliability isn’t a strong suit
- Fuel economy for the V6 could be better
Pricing and Value (8/10)
The 2017 Charger lineup begins at $27,995 for the base SE and climbs to $67,645 for the SRT Hellcat. Our SXT AWD begins at $31,995 and comes to an as-tested price of $36,000 with the Blackout package, navigation, Driver Confidence and a few other options. For most, we would say the Charger R/T is the pick of the bunch because it offers the right balance of performance and comfort.
Total Score and Competitive Comparison (61/80, 76%)
The 2017 Dodge Charger is a vehicle that you buy with your heart, not your mind. It has a number of issues in terms of materials, space and reliability. But some people are willing to overlook them, as the 2017 Charger offers mean looks, a range of V8 engines and an improved infotainment system.
The Charger isn’t for everyone and that’s OK. If you want something sensible, there are other vehicles in the class.
