2018 Dodge Charger Price
There is absolutely no information about the prices of the new 2018 Dodge Charger. However, we are counting on seeing the 2018 Dodge Charger starting price at around $40,000. However, depending on the features packages that you choose, the total amount can easily reach the $67,000.
2018 Dodge Charger Redesign and Changes
Many people believe that the new 2018 Dodge Charger will be completely different from the current generation. Nevertheless, some people go even further saying that the 2018 Dodge Charger will have a coupe-shape style, just like the 1999 Charger concept.
One of the things that could definitely help the 2018 Dodge Charger to attract more buyers was if it became sportier. However, the auto manufacturer seems to prefer offering more space in the cabin.
The front of the 2018 Dodge Charger should include some major changes like a new grille and differently shaped headlights. These should already include the latest LED technology.

2018 Dodge Charger Specs
Despite there are only rumors in what concerns the engines, we’re liking what we’ve been hearing.
The 2018 Dodge Charger SXT Hellcat should make a great return featuring a V8 engine that will be able to produce around 710 of horsepower. This will truly be a beast, even when compared with the most direct competitors.
In what concerns the base model, you should count with a new 2-liter turbocharged inline 4 petrol unit engine. This engine should be able to produce 300 of horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. We believe this engine can be even more powerful than the old V6.
Since all cars will need to meet the EPA standards by 2020, the 2018 Dodge Charger should also replace the old 5.7 and 6.4-liter V8 engines by a 3-liter twin-turbocharged V6. This engine has already been being used in some Maserati models and they can easily produce more than 400 of horsepower. So, one thing is for sure. The 2018 Dodge Charger won’t lack power or strength.
In what concerns the transmission, you can expect to get an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
2018 Dodge Charger Interior
If there is a word to describe the cabin of the new 2018 Dodge Charger is classy. The steering wheel will feature some embossed outlines, and in the center of the dashboard, you’ll see the instrument panel.
The driver will be able to easily control all the main functions using the 8.4 inches touchscreen as a control center.
The seats are covered with a high-quality leather and they are extremely comfortable.
