The 2015 Charger was not a car that could blend in the crowd, but it was a car that could be a smooth family sedan or a pursuit Police cruiser. The Charger name was brought back in 2005 and its retro-design look was very appreciated by the customers, who didn't care if the original Charger was a 2-door sedan and the new model was a 4-door vehicle. It was the sixth generation of an almost...

1981 - 1987

Only the name resembled the former glorious muscle car when Dodge introduced the 1981 Charger on the market. Dodge introduced the 1982 Charger in the summer of '81, and it was the first with a front-engine and front-wheel-drive system. Unlike its predecessors, which offered big V-8s under the hood, this one was just a four-banger aiming at the European sport-compact coupes such as the R...

1969 - 1970

Dodge built the 1969 Charger 500 to get the homologation and race in NASCAR, but it couldn't win the championship despite all the efforts. By the late '60, the carmakers understood that aerodynamics plays a crucial role in motorsport, and they tried to adapt as soon as possible. Chrysler worked with Lockheed-Martin and studied the Dodge Charger in their aerodynamic tunnel. The stand...

Chrysler was losing ground in front of Ford on the NASCAR racetrack and ordered its engineers to do something about it, and the answer was the Charger Daytona. While the Charger was a respected name in the muscle-car arena, its name was unknown in the victory circle. The engineers returned to their drawing boards and came up with the Daytona version. It was unique on the market, and it led to...

1968 - 1970

First introduced in the early 60s, the Charger was Dodge’s choice of a fastback look with the already existing technology. The iconic 1968 model was completely different from the previous version, starting with the exterior design that was redesigned: the front end featured a flat black grille, round marker lights were present on the sides and at the rear end, the Charger had round taillights...

1965 - 1968

The Dodge Charger was a model introduced by Dodge in 1965. The 1966 to 1974 Chargers were sporty models based on the Chrysler B platform that could be ordered with high-performance options. The car still resembled a Coronet or the AMC Rambler Marlin concept and was rather a luxury fastback model than a top-tier muscle car during the first generation. The interior came with semi-bucket back seats...
