2007 Dodge Charger SRT8: Huge Trunk, Folding Rear Seats Make It Surprisingly Practical

June 16, 2015

2007 Dodge Charger SRT8

Does driving a 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 keep you from helping out a friend with some painting? Not really. In fact, with its sizable trunk and fold-down rear seats, you can fit plenty of awkward cargo.

In this case, I was able to slide in a 6-foot step ladder without much trouble, along with a Shop-Vac, a tool bucket, several gallons of paint and a few drop cloths. I could have fit more if I packed everything more tightly.

In fact, I only folded down one of the rear seats, so there was quite a bit of extra cargo room available. I was surprised they folded at all since most high-performance sedans exclude this feature in favor of more structural bracing.

The only issue I found was the weak trunk struts. They're clearly worn out as the trunk lid slams down with a rapid thunk when you shut it. I'm sure we'll get a price on this soon enough and it should be an easy fix.
