Expert Quotes:

the graphics look cartoonish, as they’ve simply been scaled up from Garmin’s much smaller displays
Automobile Magazine

The navigation system uses Garmin software, and though the street labeling isn't as consistent as it could be, there's no arguing with the colorful display and simple destination entry.
Edmunds' Inside Line

massive central touch-screen interface
Winding Road

Opt for navigation, and the display grows to 8.6 inches of big-screen glory.
Car and Driver


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.

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
