  • Americans frequently fail to look beyond the surface in order to examine the substance. A better car than most will give it credit for, the 2016 Dodge Charger’s blue-collar, Y-chromosome image masks a remarkably satisfying family sedan. It’s not flawless, but there’s more to the Charger than meets the eye. For one thing, the Charger speaks with a German accent. It’s based on a rear-drive platform that dates to the mid-2000s, one that used bits and pieces from old Mercedes-Benz E-Class and S-Class models when it was first engineered.

    All Charger SE and SXT models have an excellent 3.6-liter V6 engine, an impressive 8-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive (RWD). An all-wheel-drive (AWD) system is an option for both trim levels, making the Charger perfect for climates that regularly experience inclement weather. It certainly doesn’t match the bellow and force of one of the Charger’s optional V8 engines, but the V6 engine sounds good when revving and returned 22.9 mpg in combined driving, coming in just short of the EPA’s estimate of 23 mpg.
