Vehicle2012 Dodge Charger R/T 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewI purchased this vehicle in 1st quarter of 2012. The V-8 was my original choice but decided to go for V-6 for better value and gas mileage. The V-6 was awesome; it had plenty of acceleration and with K&N filter mpg were 37plus and mid 20's. However, I was forced to change it due to raw power feel of V-8 and was just bored with 8 speed transmission with no shifting options. Make shure you buy what you wan't! You will be forced to take a hit due to depreciation of vehicle return or stay with car choice. I just kept having that regret. The Hemi is a monster. Awesome acceleration and mpg on highway are low 30's with 50 to 70 mph and on stop and go is killer at 12. Car is a head turner!
Best Features-8.5 Inch Touch Screen Navigation -Pitch Black Grill with R/t Heritage Badge -Leather seats with suede inserts -Cooling option on seats via hi/low fan settings -20" Wheels (Thrust Force Look), 45r profile tires -Center consoler Mini Screen with Fuel Saving Info, Tire Pressure, Etc. - Option to Tag and Identify Favorite Song, Artists on Sat Radio -Incredible comfort for all passengers -Ability to save seat position settings for 2 drivers -Looks that turn heads! My friend drives a 55k Audi and has a mach 3 Mustang. He said "hella sick!"(Guys in Chevy Dealer with Camaros and Vett's were caught looking...Lol) -Hope this helps -V8 5.7 Hemi !!!
Worst Features-The tires width and of course with rims could be improved 245 or 255 cant remember is too thin -Didn't care for Rear Back up Camera (Though very useful and practical) use that option on better wheel and tire set up -Seat warmers to me as standard is a waist for money that could go to better performance options....performance exhaust -This is the road and track ...plenty of rt max and rt models to throw that comfort junk in

Hello, what style of K&N filter or should I say what model number of their filter were you using to get that kind of amazing mileage? also, do you know what one I would need to order for the 2015 charger with the regular 3.6L pentestar engine? I want one but I want exceptional economy too!Report it
