GREEN | 6 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

19 mpg city, 31 highway (V-6); 16/25 (R/T); 18/27 (V-6 AWD); 15/23 (R/T AWD); 14/23 (SRT8)
U.S. EPA





With the introduction of a new eight-speed automatic transmission in V-6 models, the Charger becomes considerably more fuel-efficient for 2012.

EPA ratings for rear-wheel-drive models with the V-6 come in at 19 mpg city, 31 highway--very respectable for a large, performance-oriented sedan. And even with all-wheel drive, the V-6 lands at 18/27.

Hemi V-8-powered R/T models include Fuel Saver Technology (cylinder deactivation), and do quite well considering their 370-hp output; they're at 16/25, with AWD models down to 15/23. And if you're getting an SRT8, you're definitely not interested in gas mileage--that model gets 14/23.

Conclusion

The 2012 Dodge Charger might charge past your fuel budget if you pick the R/T or SRT8, but the V-6 is now an efficient pick.

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.
