2019 Dodge Charger vs. Its Competition

2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Charger’s most natural competitor is its stablemate, the Chrysler 300.

The cars share a platform and V-6 and base V-8 engines, but the 300 is tuned for more luxury and without the performance of the Charger.

The Cadillac CTS will outhandle the Charger and offers more luxury as well, but it’s more expensive and its turbo-4 won’t inspire muscle car fans.

The Nissan Maxima is overtly stylish and comfortable, but it can’t match the performance of any V-8 Charger.

The Genesis G80 offers real interior luxury and while it handles well it doesn’t have the attitude of the two high-end Chargers.

If comfort is your preference, the Buick LaCrosse will deliver and it also offers more driving entertainment than expected.
