The 2006 Dodge Charger was re-introduced and was a complete makeover. A far cry from the 60’s two door coupe muscle car. This car seemed a lot heavier and bigger and was certainly anything but modest. Is it similar to its predecessor, a car that has matured over four decades into something sublime? Is it just taking advantage of a legendary name? We are not too sure we really care on this point.
Times have changed and the new Charger illustrates that high-performance, highly gifted and relevant performance cars of today are compared with the hot road cars of bygone days merely in a single dimension of yesteryear. The Charger has all the punch in the guts of the old muscle cars, power and control but it's packaged with modern creature comforts and tempered by startling levels of handling competency. Put it another way, it rides, turns and stops like a dream and its interior matches its exterior. It is a bold design statement. It is a blend of retro design guides and modern forms of architecture.
With a 250-horsepower High Output V-6 engine or the optional 340-horsepower HEMI engine powering large 18-inch rear wheels, the 2006 Dodge Charger raced into the car market with a bold, provocative styling and substance without losing the convenience of a modern sedan.
Also available in the HEMI: 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine produced 340 horsepower (254 kW) and 390 lb.-ft. (525 N•m) of torque. It offered more power and torque than any Dodge passenger car engine since the legendary 426 HEMI of the ’60s and ’70s. The modern HEMI engine has been engineered to deliver outstanding performance and with reduced noise, vibration and harshness, resulting in a highly refined power plant.
