Dodge released the first details and images of the new-look Charger for 2011 which is inspired by the old ancestors even more. It gets a more fastback four-door coupe like design which at the back has become very close to the Challenger. The new model also upgraded powertrains, craftsmanship and refinement, and as Dodge says state-of-the-art connectivity features.
The 2011 Dodge Charger comes with an aluminum hood dual scallops for a more aggressive look. The iconic horizontal “coke bottle” or “double-diamond” body-side styling runs front to rear is to create a tapering silhouette accented with muscular front and rear fenders. Those new taillights we told you about, they consist of 164 illuminating LEDs to form its signature “racetrack” graphic.
Inside the cabin you get a new driver’s instrument-panel bezel. It showcases a seamless, billeted and highly detailed appearance that carries through the instrument cluster, center stack and center console. There’s also a a new thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel for enhanced performance feel and grip.
Dodge also says that they’ve worked on the car’s sound proofing. They are not talking about removing the noise, rather improving its quality, so the overall driving experience will become much more fun.
The new Charger is engineered to rival European sports saloon, so it gets specially tuned suspension. It can be had a new 3.6-liter Pentastar engine or the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with four-cylinder mode FuelSaver Technology also is included in the new Dodge Charger R/T lineup.
Dodge Charger’s innovative AWD system seamlessly transitions between RWD and AWD with no driver intervention. When all-wheel drive is not required, the system automatically disconnects the front axle to maximize fuel economy while still providing the outstanding performance and handling inherent in rear-wheel drive vehicles.
The new connectivity technologies they talk about includes the Uconnect Touch that integrates world-class infotainment and convenience technologies to keep passengers connected, comfortable and secure. From segment-leading Garmin navigation, to dual-zone climate controls and the ability to check fuel prices with the integration of available SIRIUS Travel Link, Uconnect Touch delivers an excellent experience for Charger driver and passengers.
2011 Dodge Charger comes with 65 safety and security features, including: Standard Keyless Enter-N-Go and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with segment-exclusive Ready-alert Braking and Rainy Day Brake Support safety to improve vehicle handling and performance. Safety and security features available for the first time on the Dodge Charger include adaptive-cruise control (ACC) with forward-collision warning (FCW, blind-spot monitoring (BSM) with rear cross path (RCP) detection and ParkView rear back-up camera with grid lines.
