Thanks to the introduction of a new eight-speed automatic transmission in some of the Dodge Charger V-6 models, this large sedan became considerably more fuel efficient--with an EPA highway rating of up to 31 mpg highway.
Rear-wheel-drive V-6 models slot in at 19 mpg city, 31 highway--very respectable for a large, performance-oriented sedan. While with all-wheel drive, the V-6 lands at 18/27.
Go with any of the V-8 models and you'd better be prepared to dig deeper into your wallet. Even though HEMI V-8-powered R/T models include Fuel Saver Technology (cylinder deactivation), they return 16/25 mpg, with AWD models down to 15/23. SRT8 models figure in at 14/23 mpg--which really isn't bad considering their And if you're getting an SRT8, gas mileage can't possibly be a priority; that model gets 14/23.
