The Best Full Size Automobile in America
By 1atomic on
2011 Dodge Charger R/T 4dr Sedan AWD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
I'm the very happy owner of a powerful new V8 Charger. The V6 test driven was perfect, but we opted for a Hemi powered R/T to gain AWD. The quality is by far the best in North America. We tested many new '11 autos & narrowed our choice between a Charger & '11 Durango. The materials are of high quality, the ride-handling combination's perfectly balanced. We are an Acura & Honda family but added this Dodge to show the country & Chrysler our support. The Charger's on par w/ our '10 Accord Crosstour, yet a totally different car. Both excel in their respective categories. A compliment to Chrysler Co. If enormous power & AWD are not needed, the new V6 should please everyone. Test drive both 1st.
Stunning, head turning looks; ride; handling; safety features; long list of opts.; quality; sightliness; roomy in front & back; large trunk; unique LED tail treatment; snarling, sinister grille & sportiness; Hemi growl; perfectly suited for all demographics (young & old); coupe look w/ improved visibility; two tone leather seats & interior trim; no hard surfaces or panel gaps; well-built quality feel - substantial & nothing cheap about this large American powerhouse sedan, except for unbelievable low price, even loaded like the model we ordered. The exterior colors are rich & upper scale. The blackberry pearl changes hues rivaling far more expensive European & Asian exotics. Garmin Navi.
Hard choosing between the new Dodges (Charger vs. Durango), Charger R/T AWD vs. Chrysler brethren, the '11 300C w/ AWD & even the sedans vs. the greatly improved Dodge Challenger R/T coupe & my attraction to the award winning 2011 Jeep grand Cherokee Limited & Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland editions. Even the '11 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Cherokee minivans were considerations, but the real selling points for me were the Charger R/T's bang for the buck in the AWD & V8 combination. Choice is hard but there is something for everyone for the first time in ages within the Chrysler family of vehicles for 2011. The anticipated 6.4 liter SRT-8's will be out in '12. My suggestion: AWD.
