With its impressive performance, sophisticated craftsmanship, and modern connectivity solutions, the 2011 Dodge Charger serves Dodge well as its frontrunner. Designed with innovative fastback four-door coupe measurements, the Dodge Charger certainly is a topnotch sedan with an exceptional value.
With a design that takes its inspiration from the classic and iconic 1960s Charger, the aerodynamic and efficient appearance of the 2011 Dodge Charger will definitely invoke some emotions of different generations of Dodge enthusiasts.
Equipped with its fearless and aggressive face, the Dodge Charger is reinvented to bring its E-segment sedan rivals down with its modern-looking “split crosshair” trademark grille. This sophisticated grille is designed intricately with a black satin inset fixed into its chromed borders. Carrying the restyled “Dodge” nameplate is a split hexagon grate that is installed behind the chromed grille.
Directly influenced by the 1968 and 1970 Dodge Charger coupe models, the hood of the new Charger is made of aluminum and highlights double “scallops” which creates a muscular, high-performance appearance to its anterior end. The styling tradition remains with the expansive body-side scallops that provide a stunning A-line towards the doors and expresses the high-performance legacy of the Charger. The signature flat-lying coke bottle door also runs across its body, accentuating the vehicle’s muscular outlines.
