Car and Driver
All the body panels are new and pay homage to 1968-70 Chargers with their strong character lines and 3D scallops.
Dodge designers call the 2011 Dodge Charger's front fascia "Superman's Chest." We, on the other hand, can't stop seeing visions of Brian Wilson's black beard when we walk up to this car.
We fell instantly in love with the rear view of the car, largely because of the very cool, full-length LED taillights found out back.
the redesigned 2011 model raises the sedan's meanness factor
The 2014 Dodge Charge remains a standout in the segment, even though it hasn't changed all that much since its debut in 2005.
With its crosshair grille, unmistakable bar of LED taillights, Coke-bottle silhouette and high beltline, the sedan has a retro-mod look that's both commanding and decidedly masculine. Try to look past its NASCAR and Dukes of Hazzard associations–this thing is exotic all in its own right.
The Charger looks most like a muscle car from its rear and profile–especially in burnt orange with the packages that add lower aero-work. In back, 164 LED taillamps comprise a racetrack of rear lights that spans across, and the squarish tail is topped off with a spoiler on some trims.
A couple of years ago the dash was smoothed over, with a design that's less flamboyant but a lot more pleasant and practical—and driver-oriented. The materials are better-coordinated than before—almost up to the level of a luxury car—with metallic-printed plastic with some wide but nicely contoured stretches.
The 2014 Dodge Charger is bold and assertive, but that's only on the outside; form follows function remarkably well inside.
