Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Dodge Charger?

The 2014 Dodge Charger is a five-seat, full-size sedan with an emphasis on performance. It competes with the Ford Taurus and Chevrolet Impala, and it's available in SE, SXT, R/T, SRT8 and SRT8 Superbee trim levels. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available.

What's New on the 2014 Dodge Charger?

The Redline Package is new for 2014, and it includes a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with a sport exhaust, cold-air induction, performance all-season tires, a rear spoiler, 20-inch black-chrome wheels with red accents, a sport suspension, sport seating, an upgraded audio system and steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles. An eight-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode is also included.

How Does the 2014 Dodge Charger Compare to Other Full-Size Family Sedans?

The Charger offers better AWD handling, more interior room and more-intuitive controls than the Ford Taurus, and a Sport mode is lacking in the Impala. However, the Impala includes a nicer interior, and both the Impala and the Taurus have roomier trunks.

What Features in the 2014 Dodge Charger Are Most Important?

The 2014 Dodge Charger comes standard with a 3.6-liter V-6 that produces either 292 or 300 horsepower. An available 370-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 includes cylinder deactivation for better fuel efficiency. A five-speed automatic transmission comes standard with both engines, and the V-6 engine is offered with an eight-speed automatic. The SXT and R/T trims can be equipped with all-wheel drive; all others have rear-wheel drive.

Touring, Performance and Super Track Pak suspensions are available, and the R/T Road & Track Package adds a 3.06 rear axle ratio and performance tuning for the engine and transmission. The SRT8 and SRT8 Superbee models are both equipped with a 470-hp, 6.4-liter V-8 engine, a five-speed automatic transmission, steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles, a three-mode adaptive suspension and Brembo brakes.

Significant standard features include an acoustic windshield and front side glass for reduced noise, 17-inch aluminum wheels, full-width rear-end illumination, LED taillights, halogen headlights, dual chrome exhaust tips, cloth upholstery, a 60/40-split folding backseat, dual-zone manual air conditioning, cruise control and a 4.3-inch touchscreen CD stereo with USB and MP3 ports.

Available features include 18-, 19- or 20-inch rims, split-five-spoke 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels with black-painted accents, fog lights, high-intensity-discharge headlights, a rear spoiler, heated side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power moonroof, side skirts, a black grille, a deck lid spoiler, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, power-adjustable pedals with memory, an 8.4-inch touchscreen system with SD card reader, Beats by Dre premium audio, Harman Kardon premium audio, Garmin-based navigation system, a full-color information center, Bluetooth connectivity, adaptive cruise control, leather upholstery, heated and cooled cupholders, ventilated front seats, front and rear heated seats and a heated steering wheel.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags and a driver-side knee airbag. A collision warning system, blind spot warning system with rear cross-path detection, rear parking sensors and backup camera can all be added.

Should I Buy the 2014 Dodge Charger?

A roomy backseat, well-appointed interior and aggressive style all work in favor of the 2014 Dodge Charger. However, rear-wheel-drive models aren't particularly responsive, and it can't be equipped with a manual transmission - a significant omission on a performance vehicle like the Charger. It's worth scrutinizing the driver's seat as well to see if it's comfortable, as some of our testers found it spongy.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
