According to some latest information that our team has got recently, the next-generation Dodge Charger as well as its cousin Challenger shouldn’t be expected in the market before 2021. However, the redesigned version of the 2019 Dodge Charger Demon is going to hit the market as a 2019 model, offering some serious design updates as well as engine improvements.
The 2019 Dodge Charger is going to make its appearance on the roads as a high-performance four-door sedan. A rumor has it that the next-generation Charger should ride on the brand-new platform, but this 2019 redesigned version will keep using its well-known Chrysler’s G platform that can be found on many Alfa Romeo models as well. This performance-oriented model, based on a rear-wheel-drive system, will also save some weight. In fact, the number goes up to 500 pounds! If the speculations are true, the new Charger will improve not only its fuel-efficiency, but also its performance and characteristics. The carmaker will also tend to enhance the suspension system, aerodynamics and overall exterior design. When it comes to shape and exterior features, the base model is said to be inspired by the 1999 Charger. The fans will especially love the range-topping version known as the SRT Hellcat which will understandably offer the best equipment and most attractive exterior features. This muscular and aggressive sedan will stand on standard 17-inch alloy wheels.
You can only imagine what kind of changes and improvements you will find inside the 2019 Dodge Charger. Of course, the higher trim levels will simply leave you breathless with their latest high-tech features and devices as well as their top-quality materials and ultimate comfort. Be that as it may, even the base model will not let you down. It will provide spacious and comfortable cabin, able to accommodate up to five adult passengers. The driver’s seat should be power-adjustable and the driver will also get a new leather-wrapped steering wheel. You can choose either a 7.0-inch or an 8.4-inch touch-screen display that will provide the latest infotainment system and options such as navigation system, dual-zone climate control, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, USB and Bluetooth. When it comes to safety, some of the driver assist systems would include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams and lane-departure warning.
There has been more than one option taken into consideration when it comes to engine under the hood of the 2019 Dodge Charger. The base model should be equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four while the higher trim levels could come with a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that delivers 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The Charger should be mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
