which dodge charger trim level works best for you?

2018 Jeep Wrangler Front Red Exterior

With eight trim levels to choose from, the many options you have with the 2017 Dodge Charger can be paralyzing. However, once you understand which trims come with what features and why they cost what they do, you can decide which trim is right for you.

se and sxt
These are the two inexpensive trims made for car buyers who want muscle on a budget. They come with the smallest engine, a 3.6-liter V-6 that delivers 300 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. They also come with all the basic features, such as automatic headlights, acoustic glass, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. However, the SXT adds sport front seats, 18-inch wheels instead of 17 inches, and an 8.4-inch touch screen instead of the SE’s 5-inch model.

r/t and daytona
R/T stands for “Road/Track,” and it means you can expect a strong performance. It and the Daytona are the 2017 Charger’s first upgrade level, and they pack a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that offers 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. They also add a set of performance disc brakes, an active exhaust system, and an improved sport suspension. The Daytona model also has a cold air intake system and Daytona-branded leather/suede seats.

r/t scat pack and daytona 392
The upgrades on these two are very similar. Both come with the third of the Charger engines, a 6.4-liter 392 HEMI V-8 that provides up to 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. They also have a radiator rated at severe duty II, bright-red brake calipers, a specially designed anti-spin differential rear axle, and a Bilstein high-performance suspension. One thing that sets them apart is that the Daytona models have better interior features, such as heated and ventilated front seats with heated rear seats.

srt 392
Like the name says, the 2017 Charger SRT 392 runs on the 392 engine. SRT stands for “Street and Racing Technology,” and cars with SRT have the top performance Dodge offers. This trim comes with upgrades such as a three-mode adaptable suspension and a drive mode system you can customize. It also has high-tech features such as Uconnect with navigation and five years of SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.

srt hellcat
This trim sits at the peak of the Charger range, with all the best features and the supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V-8, which generates up to 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. On top of that, the Hellcat comes with a performance steering system, a competitive Bilstein three-mode suspension, a special 200-mph speedometer, and unique Laguna leather seats with SRT and Hellcat logos on them.

No matter which trim level you choose, the Charger has better performance than what you’d expect from a full-size sedan. However, depending on your trim level, that performance can either be above average or completely out of this world. You also get better luxury features as you spend more, but performance is the main reason to buy a higher trim level.
