Lots To See: 2016 Dodge Charger

Drivers everywhere are excited to be stopping into Dodge dealerships to take a look at the 2016 Dodge Charger. Why all the hubbub? The new Charger looks good, that’s why. And it also performs so well that most people are wondering if there isn’t some Volkswagenesque funny business going on underneath the hood—there isn’t, though.

It’s just another step in the right direction for Dodge, an evolution of something that was already great into something grand. That’s why so many drivers across the nation are so interested and checking out the 2016 Dodge Charger for themselves; even if they don’t buy it or test drive it, they know they are still witnessing history.

Fuel Efficiency

The 2016 Dodge Charger gets 31 highway miles per gallon. That’s so much fuel efficiency that initially the Charger was mistaken for a hybrid by some. There just aren’t many vehicles on the road that can come even close to touching that, and that’s no joke.

Often times people who buy high performing luxury vehicles are made to feel guilty about the purchase, and in these instances you’d better believe gasoline comes up. Well, now Charger drivers don’t ever have to take that kind of flack again, thanks to its whopping 31 miles to the gallon rating.

And just how important is this 31 miles to the gallon? Pretty important when you consider that the sea level keeps rising and that NASA and other scientists are very concerned about global climate change.

It’s a big deal, you can believe that, and you can also believe that it’s a big deal that you will be able to chime in about in a positive manner, in accordance with your purchase, about how you yourself are making a tremendous impact on the environment by not being part of the problem.

But of course, the best part isn’t being able to add your positive two cents to conversations. The best part is knowing that you are part of the solution when you drive a Charger.

That’s something to take very seriously because many automotive manufacturers just don’t care enough to make the effort that would ensure that all vehicles on the road are doing their best to use as little gasoline as possible.

Affordable

The Charger has an MSRP of $27,995, something that most working Americans can afford. That’s what’s important to Dodge because who cares how awesome a car is if regular people can’t afford to drive it? Not Dodge.

Dodge is committed to working people of this great nation and making cars that they drive, that’s why the initial price point is so low.

That doesn’t mean, however, that if you have a bunch of cash to invest in your ride that that isn’t a possibility.

There are many models of the 2016 Charger, with varying price points: SE at $27,995; SXT at $29,995; SE AWD $30,245; SXT AWD $31,995; R/T at $33,695; R/T Scat Pack at $39,995; SRT 392 at $50,995; SRT Hellcat at $65,945.

The SRT Hellcat is obviously the most souped up, ready to go, bang for your multitude of dollars car. And, as is also obvious, we’re talking about a price point that is over double what the entry level Charger is priced at.

This is because Dodge wants all kinds of people in the Charger, not just a few types. It’s important to have this kind of spread of price points, and also it’s important to make enough of the vehicles so that dealers don’t try to mark them up on the lot in an effort to cash in on popularity.

The Hellcat is going to be super popular, and Dodge is well aware of this. The only way to really try to stymie the tide of dealers that want to mark up a popular model is to make enough of them so that it is near impossible to make a marked up sale.

Dodge hopes that this maneuver works and is pretty sure that it will. But there is never any guarantee, so the best bet is to buy the Charger of your choosing well before any of them gets anywhere close to running out of stock.

Engine Options

Many manufacturers will talk about how great the engine in their new model car is. But very few are willing to put enough options out there to satisfy everyone. Because the bigger and more powerful and the engine is, the more gasoline it is going to use.

And the smaller it is, often times, the more efficient it is when it comes to fuel use. It’s hard to please everyone, and the entry level engine is geared to stretch every drop of gasoline as far as it can go. It’s possible to soup up an engine with new technologies—supercharging it and finely tuning the exhaust—so that more performance can be squeezed out of it. But at the end of the day it isn’t really the best idea to try to squeeze anything out of an engine; doing so can result in an excess in wear and tear, and also might lead to failure in certain systems.

What are the engine options? That’s a good question with a long answer: 3.6L V6, 5.7L V8, 6.2L V8, and a 6.4L V8. So, as you can you see, the options start small and gradually increase to large. And these engines will have all of the best technological systems to help their longevity, which is something that few consumers think about, but what Dodge is always thinking about.

Because in order to really get our product out there it has to last a long time, it can’t just be some flash in the pan that is only around for a scant decade because it wasn’t built tough enough to stand the test of time. So know that when you buy a Charger, the engine under the hood is meant to last, built to last. Know this and have peace of mind that you’re making an investment, not just in the present but in the future.

Don’t Wait, The Time to Act is Now

Dodge is urging its customers to get moving on the Dodge Charger. It’s one of those vehicles that’s going to fly out of dealerships once it starts catching on. As the kids today say, “Don’t sleep on this.” Meaning, if you do, you’ll wake up and realize the opportunity was missed. No one likes that feeling, and no one wants to see their product get slept on.

So get ready. Mark down on your calendar when you’re going to head to your local Dodge dealer to check out the 2016 Dodge Charger. There is truly no time like the present, and present times call for action! Don’t sleep on this car! This is one that you’ll either be seeing in your dreams as a could-have-been nightmare, or as something your mind can’t wake up to.

The stunning good looks, power, and optioning that are available with the Charger are simply unparalleled. There won’t be another car that charges nearly as hard as the Charger for another ten years. So if you’re waiting for something better, for your own sake, don’t hold your breath!
