2018 Dodge Charger redesign
Dodge Charger looks impressive and deliberately aggressive – awesome front with the evil eye optics and a large grille, “muscular” profile with rapid lines and “inflated” wheel arches, monumental rear with lights across it and a massive bumper with diffuser. From what angle you look, it is attractive, fairly solid and definitely sporty.
It would be still 4-door sedan only – don’t expect such things as 2018 Dodge Charger coupe or 2 door, since there are Challenger on the market.
2018 Dodge Charger Scat pack is unlikely to be available, since this package is dedicated exclusively for 2-door Challenger. There are could be a new 2018 Dodge Charger Daytona car, similar to the previous generation Charger.
2018 Dodge Charger SRT8 is no longer available under this name, the current lineup of Dodge vehicles use SRT abbreviation.

R/T is a standard designation for the Dodge’s hot cars. Charger is no exception. Current generation features HEMI V8 engine as a standard for this modification. 2018 model year car might switch to more compact turbocharged unit, at least there are plenty rumors about it.
2018 Dodge Charger Hellcat
Hellcat modification of Charger is an ultimate 2018 Dodge Charger SRT version, equipped with the most powerful engine in FCA range – 6.2 liter supercharged V8, producing 707 HP. In terms of exterior design, 2018 Charger Hellcat features more advanced bodykit, as well as hood with a large air vents.
2018 Dodge Charger interior
The interior of the sixth gen Dodge Charger is not replete with an excess of the original decision, but it looks beautiful, expensive and sportily. Three-spoke steering wheel with embossed outlines crowned controls, instrument panel with two “wells” and an elegant and informative color display with the massive center console on flaunting 8.4-inch multimedia system and ergonomically-engineered climate control.
More likely there will not be so many changes in the next generation of car. We only hope Dodge will add something special to the design, just to feel you’re driving not an ordinary mid-size “sporty-like” sedan, but a powerful beast.
