    Two New 3-Coat paint colors – Ivory and Phantom Black! This is a special paint process that is exactly as it sounds - three coats of paint

    1.The high solid base coat (flat color)

    2.The “effect coat” or “glamour coat” (Pearl or Metallic), and

    3.The clear coat

    This process allows for a richer and much more intense depth of color than a traditional 2-coat paint process

    292 hp which is nice in the SE (base model)

    smooth finish to the design of the vehicle compared to the earlier models

    spacious inside , room for everyone to fit comfortably

    driver seat can be adjusted to be nearly flat as a bed for those power naps

    oil filter is easily available in the front of the engine (weird for me but eh its ok i guess)

    great Variable Valve Timing engine with its automatic "eco" when foot light or off the throttle


    the front seats although considered bucket seats they feel too wide for a normal 5 8 body and when doing sharp turns feel that youre sliding in them

    the exhaust is really quiet and doesn t really sound like an American car should sound like

    the rectangular exhaust attached to the bumper is a fake and you can see through it and see the actual exhaust in it.

    one of the things that really bugs me is that the vehicle is only found in automatic and not in a manual transmission (takes a lot of fun out of it )

    the stereo screen pretty much controls everything with the ac so if you want to put an aftermarket stereo you have to do some cutting and the $400-$600 conversion kit for it.

    the E-break is a step pedal and not a hand break which i think would work out great with the dodge charger family

    I own a 2013 Charger SXT AWD. My only complaint with the car is the fact that you cannot switch between 4wd and 2wd yourself. The car does it automatically and not always when 4wd is needed.

    Otherwise, I agree with all the pros the other responders have posted here, I'm very satisfied with my Charger.

  • Cons . . . it's not a two door hardtop like the earlier models, my friends say I'm old school about the Charger, it's hard not to be when you've owned three (two '69's and a '70) and still own the '70, a numbers matching big block Charger 500, really my wife's but she lets me drive it every now and then.

    Source(s): Fifty years of shadetree engineering, racing, and home auto repair, all Mopars mostly Dodges. Former owner now caretaker of two numbers matching '70 Challenger R/Ts, caretaker of the above mentioned Charger and owner of a small block '71 Challenger.
