2011 Dodge Charger Features

On Features
The difference between the 2011 Charger trims comes down more to engines than it does to features. The Charger SE comes with V-6 power, and in R/T form with the HEMI V-8 and either rear- or all-wheel drive. An SRT8-spec Charger hasn't been on any public agenda, but you can bet it's number one on the secret agenda.

Feature-happy Chrysler is following hotly on Ford's heels, if a step or two behind. The 2011 Dodge Charger opens up USB ports for plug-in dongles that turn 3G into in-car WiFi; a Garmin navigation system calls up directions on the LCD screen, though it's a barely factory unit that has some maddening paths to finding maps and programming instructions.

The Charger has Bluetooth and can be optioned up to Sirius TravelLink, so you can follow sports scores, lottery numbers and movie times while driving (not so great an idea in print, better and less distracting in practice). Some systems can be controlled by voice, but the Dodge setup is nowhere near as complex or as hands-free as Ford's SYNC.

The 2011 Dodge Charger doesn't skimp on features, but it's a half-step behind on some of the connectivity ones.
