The Dodge Charger led the charge when it came to giving an eight-speed automatic to cars, leaving the competition so far behind that even 2 model years later, they’re still struggling.
The Charger SXT, SXT Plus come standard with an 8-speed automatic and an award winning 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 – producing 292 horsepower.
But why do you need 8-speeds in a car? What’s the benefit? The easy answer is that when you have better transmission, your engine can perform at its best RPM range, giving you the best possible fuel economy and driving performance. When you have 8 gears, you engine can maintain a minimum rpm at cruising speeds, which helps to increase engine life, fuel usage and noise. In the Charger, 8 speeds means a fuel economy of over 30 mpgs* – astonishing for a full sized, full powered sedan.
The Charger doesn’t just have power though, it’s a driver’s dream when it comes to handling. Responsive to touch and smooth to ride in, enthusiasts know that this is the car to drive when you want something more than your run of the mill sedan. From design to comfort to under the hood capabilities, the Charger is a whole new ride for a new generation of drivers.
