Dodge Charger to slim down and run turbo four in next generation

Dodge Charger

If you are a fan of the Dodge Charger and Dodge vehicles in general, you know how great they are and how fun they are to drive. Dodge knows this, and the company is always looking to improve upon its image and its cars. In fact, with the Dodge Charger, it would be easy to rest on its laurels and enjoy the dividends as the car is well-loved, but Dodge is no ordinary car company, and the new Charger will slim down and run a turbo four in the next generation.

Originally introduced in 2005 as a 2006 model, the Charger has been around for a long time, especially when you consider other brands and models out there. It has enjoyed two refreshes in the past, and each time it has improved on already great versions of its vehicles. Still, the company wants to keep the car going strong and ever-popular, and it is reportedly going under anther face lift one last time for 2019. After that, some huge changes are in store for this great car. To see how great of a car the Dodge Charger is, give one a spin at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas

One thing that may bring down the Dodge Charger is the weight. Depending on the engine size, it is currently between 3,900 and nearly 4,6000 pounds. While true, it has a beast of an engine and still offers impressive quarter mile and 0-60 times of around 5.0 seconds, depending on the size of the engine and car. With the weight loss, the car should get a boost in gas mileage, though it is probably not on most people’s minds. However, a weight reduction should also give drivers a better feel and quicker track times. The target weight for the car, according to the company, is 3,500 pounds.

If you have been a car buff for along time, you may remember the front-wheel drive four-cylinder Charger in the early 80s. If you do, you probably remember how great of a car it was. The recharged sedan will use a twin-turbo offering 300 horses and a four-cylinder engine. This is the same engine that is under development for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Don’t get too excited yet; it will still be a long time before we see one on the road. But, if you are looking to get a Dodge Charger now, you will get a quality vehicle as there is plenty of Dodge Charger Inventory, along with other cars, available. 

The advantage of the four-banger engine should be obvious. First and foremost, it should be more efficient and offer better fuel economy. While true, the fuel economy on current models is not bad, even with the larger engines. Not only that, with the four-cylinder, you will have plenty of power as it is a turbo. All in all, it should be a good fit for the Charger as you will get the best of both worlds – speed and power, along with fuel economy.

The Dodge Charger is a great car, and if you are interested in checking one out, you won’t regret it. If you can wait for a few years, you may be able to get your hands on an even better version, which may be hard to imagine.
