2020 Dodge Charger vs. Its Competition

2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody
Byron Hurd Byron Hurd Contributor

The Chrysler 300, which is the Charger’s twin, is its most direct competitor.

Both are based on the same architecture and offer many of the same options, but the 300 lacks the Charger’s sportier character and engine offerings.

Cadillac’s CT6 offers a more European feel and commands an appropriate price premium, but lacks V-8 options in its bread-and-butter variants.

Nissan’s Maxima offers a sporty take on family sedans, but its front-wheel drive platform and midsize roots mean it’s smaller and less sporty, plus it suffers from having a CVT.

The Genesis G80 plays in similar space to the Cadillac, and for similar money.

Quick Specs
6.3
The Charger may be old, but it’s still a charmer, and can pull double duty as a sedate highway cruiser or a drag strip monster.
6.4
In its final year, the 2020 Cadillac CT6 is a tempting look at what could have been from the luxury brand.
5.7
If it’s a certain retro appeal you’re after in a four-door sedan, few vehicles can compete with the moderately priced 2020 Chrysler 300.
6.7
The 2020 Nissan Maxima is a handsome, relatively sporty sedan in an era when fewer people than ever are interested in one.
7.5
The 2020 Genesis G80 offers smooth power and attainable luxury for much less than the competition.
