Turn the key and feel the power…The Chargers ROAR is powered by up to a mind blowing 5.7 liter HEMI V8 that explodes out of the gate with 370 horse power. It delivers a whiplash like 395 pounds of torque. Or ease into the 3.6-liter V6 Variable Valve Timing Pentastar engine. The 2012 Dodge Charger turns heads even when the motor is off. A retro feel with modern lines gives the Charger the modern American muscle car spotlight. Chargers Command of the Road Seating and driving oriented cockpit design immediately put the driver in Charge of this exceptional performance vehicle. Toss in the kicking sound system GPS navigation and an entertainment system to quickly remind yourself that modern luxury does in deed come with classic performance and style. Expectations meet desire with the 2012 Charger.
