2017 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2017 Dodge Charger: Compare Cars

The formula for the full-size sedan is pretty simple. It has to be spacious and comfortable, and a reasonable price wouldn't hurt, either. The Chevrolet Impala and Dodge Charger fit that bill.

Each takes a different route to that destination, though. With the Impala, Chevy opts for front-wheel drive and 4-cylinder or V-6 power, while the Dodge Charger goes with rear- or all-wheel drive and V-6 or V-8 power. Both work well, but which is best for you? Let's dig deeper to find out.
