Australia Might Get the Dodge Charger Next Year
According to Car Advice, Chrysler’s senior vice president ralph Grilles said that his team is analyzing the possibility to ship a converted right-hand-drive version of the Charged to Australia, to be sold alongside the same platform-sharing Chrysler 300.
“Apparently the Australians favour the Charger more than the 300, so we’re looking at a conversion package where we could do something,” Gilles said. “The market wants it, so that’s something I’m very interested in.”
A 2014 launch would make a great return of the iconic Charger in Australia, as the popular 2-door Chrysler Valiant Charger made there was discontinued in 1978.
The Dodge Charger is offered with three unique powertrains in the US; a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 (296 hp/353 Nm), a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 (375 hp/536 Nm) and a high performance 6.4-liter Hemi V8 (477 hp/637 Nm).
