2022 Dodge Charger vs. Its Competition

2022 Dodge Charger
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If you find the Charger to be a little brutish, look at the Chrysler 300.

You won’t find as many power options, but you’ll find a nicer interior.

The Nissan Maxima tries to be sporty but ultimately comes up a little confused.

We like the Toyota Avalon more, though 2022 will be this sedan’s last outing.

The similar Lexus ES costs more but is remarkably versatile—though don’t look for 400 hp.

Finally, the Genesis G80 is a solid, refined choice that should be on any shopping list.
