Dodge Charger 2019 Interior Configurations

What’s new

New interior and exterior styling tweaks
Revised trim level names and feature availability
Part of the seventh Charger generation introduced in 2011

While Dodge sells plenty of Chargers with the V6, this big sedan is at its best with a V8 under the hood. Consideration should begin with the R/T, which comes well equipped with the essentials plus some luxuries such as heated seats. If you can afford it, step up to the Scat Pack powered by the 392 (6.4-liter) 485-horsepower V8. We’d also add the Driver Confidence and Technology packages for their driver assistance features and xenon headlights.

OVERVIEW

The 2019 Dodge Charger isn’t a sensible car for sensible drivers. Instead, it’s for drivers who want a car that looks cool, makes cool noises, goes obscenely fast and comes in colors such as Go Mango, Plum Crazy, TorRed and White Knuckle. If you’re looking for something state-of-the-art, fuel-efficient, refined and anonymously styled, the Charger is not your car. READ: 2020 Dodge Journey Model

It is practical, though. Four doors, a roomy cabin, and a raft of safety features make the Charger a legitimate choice for family duty. A broad range of standard and optional creature comforts let you tailor the Charger to taste, while the car’s Uconnect infotainment interface remains one of the best around. It’s even available with all-wheel drive, which helps bolster this performance sedan’s usability in inclement weather.

For 2019, Dodge has made a few updates as well. The SRT Hellcat gets a new grille and features to help improve drag-racing performance, including a line lock, a launch assist feature, torque reserve, and after-run chiller. Below that, the SRT R/T Scat Pack gets new styling options and available adaptive suspension dampers. Charger GT and R/T models receive a host of chassis and electronic upgrades, including a performance suspension, a new rear axle ratio and recalibrated steering.

These changes help keep the Charger fresh. The latest generation has seemingly been around forever (since 2011), yet it’s still one of our favorite big sedans. It’s the only one that blends classic hot-rod performance and style with modern sensibility.

2019 Dodge Charger configurations

The 2019 Dodge Charger is a five-passenger, four-door sedan available in five main trim levels: SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat. The SXT and GT trims come with the V6, while the others come with increasingly powerful V8 engines culminating in the 707-horsepower Hellcat. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available on the SXT trim.

ALSO SEE: 2020 Dodge Challenger Concept Specs

The SXT starts with a 3.6-liter V6 engine (292 hp, 260 lb-ft of torque) matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. From there, standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and ignition, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a 60/40-split folding back seat. Tech features include Dodge’s Uconnect infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, dual USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.

When you opt for the all-wheel-drive version of the SXT, you also get an uprated version of the 3.6-liter V6 engine (300 hp and 264 lb-ft), 19-inch wheels, LED foglights, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, upgraded cloth upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Uconnect with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, HD radio, a 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi hotspot, and an upgraded six-speaker sound system.

Next up is the GT. It’s equipped similarly to SXT AWD trim but has rear-wheel drive, 20-inch wheels, and suspension and styling enhancements. The R/T is equipped similarly to the GT, but it comes with a 5.7-liter V8 engine (370 hp, 395 lb-ft).

The Scat Pack adds to the R/T a bigger 6.4-liter V8 engine (485 hp, 475 lb-ft), Brembo high-performance brakes, a limited-slip rear differential, heavy-duty engine cooling, and power-adjustable front seats.

For the above trim levels, a variety of optional packages are available. Highlight features include xenon headlights, an upgraded suspension and tires, a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a navigation system, a Harman Kardon sound system, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and heated rear seats. For added safety, check out the Technology Group package that includes most of today’s important driver assistance features.

Finally, the SRT Hellcat tops the Charger line with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (707 hp, 650 lb-ft), upgraded steering and suspension tuning, and almost all of the above options.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Dodge Charger Daytona 392 (6.4L V8 | 8-speed automatic | RWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2018, the current Charger has received some minor revisions, including new trim level names and feature availability. Our findings remain applicable to this year’s Charger, however.

Audi Q8 Release Date Canada Exterior and Interior Review

The Audi Q8 Release Date Canada SUV is in its last year before a redesign, but thankfully not a rethink. It’s spacious, quiet, comfortable, and capable, mostly thanks to its standard all-wheel-drive system and chunky flat-4 enging. The Audi Q8 Release Date Canada offers a pleasantly high driving position, lots of front elbow room, and a dashboard far enough away to make the interior feel spacious. The upright shape and low window line make the interior airy and light and give excellent outward visibility.

Fiat Punto 2020 Spesification

The Fiat Punto 2020 handles well and its standard AWD gives off-road ability as well, though only the turbo model offers spirited performance.

Fiat Punto 2020 Release, Specs and Review

A mild re-trim and re-fresh of the interior was once met with a wider choice of engines to complete the changes, however that it has been condensed to a mere two choices. The full list comprises of 1.2-litre 8-valve petrol (68bhp) and a 1.4-litre 8-valve petrol (76bhp).

Strangely, Fiat has done away with the diesel units that would normally be found under most mid-sized family hatchbacks, but also the newest addition to the Punto range was the TwinAir unit borrowed from the 500. Under our examination, the 0.9-litre, two-cylinder unit performed admirably and didn’t feel short of breath as one may imagine it would.

The highlight of the range now is the non-turbo, 77bhp version of the 1.4-litre MultiAir engine, which feels strong, smooth and torquey. Push away from the lights and the front-drive Punto feels much more agile enough, at least in the bottom half of its rev range. READ ~ 2020 Ford Raptor Picture

But these remaining petrol engines are nowhere near as good as the 1.3 Multijet diesel, which came in 74bhp and 85bhp guises, was under the bonnet. Using a common rail injection process with up to eight individual cycles, it is exceptionally quiet, free revving and, in top-of-the-line guise, imbued with solid slab of mid-range poke, providing the new Fiat better cruising credentials, outstanding in-gear performance and decent economy.

The Punto’s on-road performance, is rather less beguiling. The steering is lightly weighted at the rim but it also conveys a sense of disconnection. Steer into a roundabout or a fast bend, and you are never quite sure of position of the front wheels. At speed, the Punto is quite hard to place accurately.

Pushing through a series of bends, the Punto demonstrates a degree of nicely rising lateral grip, but you don’t feel you can exploit it because the car rolls a reasonable amount and because of the lack of confidence in the whereabouts of the front end. The ride wasn’t half bad, though, especially on the very poor surfaces near Fiat’s Balocco test track. This car lopes along pretty well.

As for the standard equipment levels, there are two to choose from – Pop+ and Easy+. The entry-level model gets air conditioning, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, 15in alloy wheels and electric front windows as standard, while the Easy+ adds 16in alloys, climate control, front fog lights and a TomTom sat nav system.

It’s an intriguing car. Decently spacious for a supermini, nippy and, with the right engine, particularly characterful. And the showroom price is competitive. But the driving dynamics are decidedly humdrum.

The best value in Fiat Punto 2020 is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
