2014 Dodge Charger review: Our expert's take

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.

Dodge charger

Very good handling car lots of performance power sleek design good fuel mileage for a v6 engine entirely worth the money an overall Very well built car


2014 Charger

we bought ours in 2016 with 33,000 miles. It replaced a 2009 Pontiac Vibe. It's as good on gas at 25-31mpg and it rides and drives so much better! 5 people ride comfortably. it's had minimal repairs, has 177,000 miles now and still going. it rides, drives and great. has been on 10w30 Mobil1 since we got it and changing oil every 10,000 miles it's never used any oil. I hope to find another one before we stop driving.


Best vehicle I have owned!

I have owned the 2014 R/T AWD plus blacktop edition for 5 years now (bought slightly used). What a great car! Might be the best car I have ever owned (and I’ve owned many cars). Great ride, good tech that still holds up to todays standards, lots of power, smooth ride, quiet, comfortable. At 100k miles, no issues. Almost no rattles, no rust. Best snow vehicle I’ve ever had up to about 7 inches of snow. I’m hoping that Stellantis comes out with a high HP hybrid or “e” model in the next few years, so I can buy another, since they are getting rid of the Hemi’s. I would highly recommend this vehicle.
