2022 Dodge Charger review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Dodge Charger?

The Dodge Charger is a full-size sedan that can seat up to five people. It’s powered by a standard 292-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The V-6’s horsepower is bumped up to 300 for the all-wheel-drive SXT trim level and the GT. Also available are a 370-hp, 5.7-liter V-8; a 485-hp, 6.4-liter V-8; and a 717- or 797-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, though opting for AWD means sticking with the V-6.  

With its most powerful available engines, the 2022 Charger is one of the fastest sedans at any price. Competitors include the Nissan Maxima and Toyota Avalon, as well as muscle cars like the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. You can see how the Charger scored in our Car Seat Check here.

Should I Buy the 2022 Dodge Charger? 

With its rear-drive platform and available high-output V-8 engines, the Charger is a bit of an outlier among its competitors. There’s plenty of space inside, and a large trunk is another plus. Just be aware: The V-8-powered versions get pricey, and they have a big appetite for fuel.

Easy process

Amazing experience, the process was very easy with excellent customer service. I didn't feel overwhelmed with paper work or a lot of unnecessary questions. Just strait to the point and sale.


Cheap fun!

2022 Charger. Handle and drives great with the 20 inch wheels. Brakes great. Getting 26 mpg town and over 30 mpg on the highway. Plenty of power with the 3.6 engine. Great car for the money.


Charger - Best In Its Class!

The 2022 GT Charger looks great and sexy. Has a great sport suspension with excellent handling, V6 and ride. Best of all it gets excellent highway gas mileage. 30+ MPG. Trim and interior are perfect, except for not having the updated LED interior lighting. Otherwise, car can compete with any foreign manufacture in quality and price. Would recommend this car with a five-star rating.
