Arguably the modern symbol of American muscle, the Dodge Charger is available with a host of engines and different options at various price points, and it is Dodge’s response to the ever-shrinking segment of full-size sedans. With its umpteen number of features and powertrains on offer, it appeals to the modern-day buyer and enthusiasts alike. 

The 2022 Dodge Charger is available in a total of seven well-equipped variants - SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, SRT Hellcat Redeye, Scat Pack Widebody. The brand has provided each variant has certain trim levels to choose from, so as to have a car for everyone, depending on the creature comforts or explosive performance they’re looking for.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The sedan segment is officially dying, with manufacturers like Ford deciding to pull the plug on their vehicles from the segment. Despite the success sedans have brought some manufacturers in the past, the crossover demand explosion has rocked the industry. Only a handful sedans have survived the paradigm shift, and one of those is the iconic Dodge Charger. Still being sold in 2022, it goes up against the likes of equally respectable vehicles such as the Chrysler 300, Toyota Avalon, and the Kia Stinger

The full-size sedans have experienced a downfall in popularity, but the muscle car from Dodge has only gained clout in the past few years. It is often seen as a symbol of America, and the Dodge Charger is the best muscle car available today.

2022 Dodge Charger Pricing and Features

Dodge is yet to release details pertaining to prices, but judging by the changes done to the 2022 Charger we’re expecting a very slight price hike - up to a maximum of $1000 - from the existing 2021 model year. The 2022 Dodge Charger will reach dealerships this summer

2022 Dodge Charger Buying Advice

The Dodge Charger is a mediocre offering in its lower variants. The muscle car suddenly turns pony with a V6 and a much sportier chassis. Nevertheless, it still packs all of its brawn in its powertrain, and the base V6 engine offers the most reasonable fuel economy you can ask for across the engine options. It obviously doesn’t help when you sell a variant capable of emptying its gas tank in minutes.

The lower variants of the Dodge Charger are easy to maintain, effectively priced, and offer everything that a full-size sedan should. For added comfort and convenience the more luxurious Chrysler 300 is available, and if that doesn’t do it for you, might as well check out rivals. The Dodge Charger has its ups and downs, but remains as balanced as can be in lower variants.

2022 Dodge Charger Engine and Performance

The 2022 Dodge Charger is expected to carry over from 2021 with four engine options: a 3.6L naturally aspirated V6 that makes 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, a 5.7L V8 that makes 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque, a ginormous 6.4L V8, that makes 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque, and a 6.2L Supercharged V8 that makes a mind-numbing 717 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque or an even higher 797 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque, depending on how deep your pockets are.

Apart from buyings costs, the Dodge Charger engine options bring about some high operating costs, in every form except the Base variant V6. The SRT and Redeye variants go toe to toe against some of the most performance-minded vehicles available in the market, while the same chassis housing a V6 offers daily usability.

While the SXT and the GT variant can be had with all-wheel-drive as well, the rest of the V8-powered Chargers are only available with rear-wheel-drive. All Chargers use an 8-Speed Automatic transmission. The Dodge brand name doesn’t look all that good when the Korean Kia Stinger produces more horsepower than the larger engine with more cylinders in the Dodge. Nevertheless it isn’t an apples to apples comparison. Even the Toyota Avalon engine produces more horses than the V6 in the 2022 Dodge Charger, while narrowly beating its torque figure of 260 lb-ft. That being said, the Dodge Charger engine is more than adept at getting the large sedan rolling at reasonable fuel efficiency.

The Kia Stinger is clearly the most performance inclined vehicle in the lineup, offering sporty but balanced handling along with its powerful powertrain. The two combine to make the Stinger the fastest among the four from zero to sixty. The Toyota Avalon and its horsepower are enough to overcome the drawbacks of FWD and beat all RWD-based vehicles, getting from a standstill to 60 in 6 seconds flat. The larger engines show their muscle over a quarter mile, with the Charger finishing within 2 tenths of a second of the Avalon and Stinger times, which both take 14.6 seconds.

2022 Dodge Charger Fuel Economy

As a result of an engine seemingly set at a lower tune, the Dodge Charger delivers fuel economy that is on par with its rivals. The other vehicles in the sedan at least match the economy figures of the Dodge Charger, purists run on smiles per gallon than miles per gallon. 

The V6 equipped Charger returns 19 MPG in the city, a respectable 30 MPG on the highway, a decent 23 MPG when driven combined. The 18.5-gallon fuel tank can take you a maximum distance of 555 miles, given that you are sedate with the throttle.

The FWD Toyota Avalon makes use of its drivetrain architecture and weight characteristics to return a combined fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon, topping off the full-size sedan class, followed by the Kia Stinger at 25 miles per gallon. At 23 miles per gallon, the Charger isn’t all that far behind, but it’s worth mentioning that the V6 is by no means the most popular engine choice in the Charger.

2022 Dodge Charger Interior

The interiors remain mostly unchanged for the 2022 MY. The entry-level variant feels quite bare and bones as compared to the higher trims, but they too lack in the quality department, as you wouldn’t expect hard plastics at a price point of more than $73,000, irrespective of the exclusivity of the powertrain. 

Although equipped with all the regular amenities, the interior feels a little cramped and low on comfort. Moreover, there is a subtle lack of finesse that wouldn;t have been a problem if the materials used across the cabin weren;t suited for longevity and function over form. However, there are enough storage spaces placed around to store your knick-knacks. 

The vehicle comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Higher trims can also be had with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display and an 18-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system.

*2021 MY data used for reference

The Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 match one another stat for stat when it comes to interior dimensions. This is because they share loads of similarities across mechanicals and design, as they are both products of the FCA group. Moreover, they’re complimentary offerings from Dodge and Chrysler, offering a larger luxury quotient in the latter of the two. The Kia Stinger strives to provide the best front seats in the house, as a driver-focused car. That being said it does offer all-round sedan practicality, but the Toyota Avalon trumps the other three in that aspect, despite somewhat falling short of the competition in terms of interior measurements. 

Interior and Infotainment features in the 2022 Dodge Charger:

  • 7-inch touchscreen infotainment 
  • AM/FM Radio along with SiriusXM
  • Bluetooth Streaming and Hands-free Calling
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Leather-wrapped heated steering wheel with metal die-cast paddle shifters

2022 Dodge Charger Exterior

The exterior of the 2022 Dodge Charger remains completely unchanged from its handsome and proportionate design. Some would say the current design is symbolic, and it’s a good move from Dodge to not introduce any changes. The dimensions are expected to be exactly the same as before. The design strikes a perfect balance between retro and modern, whilst being stylish and muscular across all variants.

The Muscle car nature is more than apparent in its dimensions. The 2022 Charger is almost 200 inches long, boasts a long wheelbase, and has poor ground clearance on top of that. It would be going too far to say Dodge has thrown aerodynamics to the wind, but the Charger would do a lot better with a sleeker silhouette. 

Exterior features of the 2022 Dodge Charger:

  • Symbolic looks remain intact
  • Aggressive front fascia, functional air intake in the hood
  • Sporty/Chrome accents around the vehicle (depending on trim)
  • Stretched tail lights make for futuristic looking rear fascia

2022 Dodge Charger Safety

Along with a solid chassis built with high-strength steel, the vehicle has side guard door beams, front head restraints, and multiple airbags. Active safety elements are also available onboard like a rear back-up camera, forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane departure warning with lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and the automatic high-beam headlamps. 

The Dodge Charger is already a very capable vehicle when it comes to straight line speeds. The vague handling and slightly unpredictable dynamics make it all the more reason to make the Charger safer. However, Dodge will mostly continue to offer its top safety tech as an option and not standard across its trims.

2022 Dodge Charger Competition

2022 Dodge Charger vs 2021 Chrysler 300

There are very few FCA products doing well enough in the market to keep the group of manufacturers afloat. The Dodge Charger is the stalwart American muscle car, while the Chrysler 300 is the same feelings and emotions wrapped in leather. Both cars offer a similar ownership experience, although the drive and ride quality differs among them.

If a direct comparison were to be made, the Charger would be the more popular option for the buyer who prefers driving. The Chrysler 300 is a well-mannered sedan with the attitudes of a muscle car, but the sheer price difference between the Base variants of either car could sway your decision. The Dodge Charger isn’t a much better handler than the Chrysler, but it is the better drivers car due to its cost and maintenance schedules

2022 Dodge Charger vs 2021 Kia Stinger 

The Kia Stinger is the Korean manufacturers rebuttal against those who thought of their vehicles as pipsqueaks among stronger competition. Some of the cars from the Kia stables offer comfort and convenience on priority, and the Kia Stinger is evidence of the manufacturers prowess when it comes to performance. The Stinger offers decent sedan usability with an exciting driving experience. Moreover, the turbocharged four cylinder in the Stinger is tuned to perform better, but can be frugal if you really need it to.

Dodge beats the Stinger when it comes to aftermarket support in the country, and the muscle car is still a more popular choice than the Kia. That being said, from a strictly logical standpoint, the Kia Stinger seems to have the Dodge Charger beat.

2022 Dodge Charger vs 2021 Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon could be considered the odd one out among the four. All the full-size sedans under inspection throughout the review have a particular focus on being fun to drive. Sure the meaning of fun might differ, as the Dodge offers unpredictability and a wild engine to satisfy your driving pangs, and the Kia Stinger does the same with a more polished and precise driving experience. The Toyota Avalon on the other hand, is an FWD sedan that focuses on seating and ride comfort more than performance. The availability of a well-engineered V6 makes for some exciting performance figures, but it isn’t nearly as fun to drive as its real-wheel-drive competition.

2022 Dodge Charger Final Verdict

There isn’t much left to say regarding the Dodge Charger. Its wildness is evident in its powertrain options, while its lack of comfort focus is seen in the lack of interior customisation options. The FCA group makes provisions for a Charger with a good amount of luxury, but that comes in the form of the Chrysler 300, which loses out on the monstrous engines the Charger can be had with.

The Dodge Charger remains a cult classic if anything. A less finicky buyer with a strong inclination to buy the Charger could do so with ease, but if sensibility is your concern, you might want to go ahead and check out its rivals.

Powerful but not athletic
