THE 2014 DODGE CHARGER RT REVIEW
Summary Review by Tess: Outstanding Power and Performance
The 2014 Dodge Charger is one of the great iconic muscle cars of the modern era. Immortalized in numerous films and television shows, the Charger R/T represents a compelling reminder of the enduring appeal of the open road, and the ongoing excitement of a truly powerful sports car. That said, this powerful vehicle is not without its shortcomings. Its fuel economy is below average for the class, and rear seat headroom may be lacking for taller adults.
Under the Hood
The powerful 5.7-liter V-8 engine of the 2014 Dodge Charger R/T pumps out 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque to provide ample motivating power for this performance vehicle.The Charger R/T can manage the 0 to 60 run in just 5.4 seconds, an exceptional time in this automotive class. Rear-wheel drive is standard and provides better performance, but the all-wheel drive configuration is preferred for buyers who live in northern latitudes or who must often drive in inclement weather conditions. A five-speed shiftable automatic is the sole available transmission option. Fuel economy is disappointing at 16 miles to the gallon in the city and 25 on the highway, but the overall power and performance of the Charger R/T will more than compensate for this weakness. Safety features available on the 2014 Dodge Charger include anti-lock braking, air bags, traction and stability control systems, and anti-whiplash head restraints. A blind-spot alerting system, collision advance warning system, and a rearview camera are available as optional safety features.
Inside the Cabin
The Dodge Charger R/T features an extensive list of standard equipment that includes cruise control, keyless startup and entry, two-zone climate controls, power-adjustable front seats, and a 10-speaker Beats sound system with CD and multiple interface capabilities. Options for the R/T include auto-dimming driver’s side mirror, leather interior trim, rearview camera capabilities, rear parking sensors, heated front seats, a sunroof, and a deluxe navigation system.
On the Road
The raw power and performance of the 2014 Dodge Charger R/T make it a standout in the muscle car category and will ensure that drivers enjoy an unforgettable experience behind the wheel. Smooth shifting and impeccable handling make the Charger R/T one sports car that lives up to the hype and delivers on the promise of its aggressive exterior styling.
Performance-oriented buyers need look no further than the 2014 Dodge Charger to find the ideal solution for their need for speed and power in highway driving adventures, or while navigating the roads a little closer to home.
