Despite its incredible legacy, it’s hard to believe that the iconic Dodge Charger is nearly sixty years old. The vehicle was first introduced way back in 1966, where it had a nice run for a little over a decade before taking a short hiatus and returning from 1981 to 1987. It was then put on the shelf for, in our opinion, far too long, as it wasn’t reintroduced until 2005. Although it’s technically a full-size sedan rather than a traditional sports car, the Charger has always been well known for its sportiness and high performance, which hasn’t changed in the 2022 Dodge Charger, which you can find right here in Fort Scott, KS.
For the 2022 model year, very little needed to change, despite the fact that the model’s last facelift was in 2015. It continues to be an excellent option in its segment, and the introduction of the SRT Hellcat Redeye last year certainly still has interests piqued. The only change this year is the introduction of a deluxe security alarm as a standard feature on certain models, or available in a package on the rest.
There are five different powertrain options to choose from in the 2022 Dodge Charger, starting with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that can generate 300 horsepower. The next step is a 5.7L HEMI V8 that generates 370 hp, then a 392 HEMI V8 with 485 hp, then a 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8 that delivers 717 hp in the SRT Hellcat models, and finally the high-output version of the powertrain.
That last powertrain we mentioned, the high-output supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8, comes standard in the SRT Hellcat Redeye, which is officially the fastest mass-produced sedan on the globe. Its powertrain enables it to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds, run a quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 129 mph, and hit a top speed of 203 mph, the fastest speed for a four-door muscle car in the world.
