RT Fuel Mileage better than expected
By jowica on


2011 Dodge Charger R/T 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Don't let the V8 Hemi tag scare you off. The V8 has a fuel management system that shuts 4 cylinders down when not needed. On one open stretch of I-95 I bumped it down to 65mph and averaged between 31 and 33mpg. The system also kicks in while driving city roads around 30mph. The car has averaged about 21mpg in the city, just as good as many V6 models out there without the fuel management system.
The car itself is great to drive. Fit and finish are excellent. The RT base package is all ones really needs- remote start, 8.4" Uconnect w/bluetooth, 18" alloy wheels, spoiler. A similarly equipped V6 will save you a few thousand dollars, but you'll get the value back with the RT at trade.

Best Features

Fuel mileage much better than expected. The 8.4" Uconnect screen is great. Sirius radio and all the climate features right there in a touch screen. Bluetooth is crisp and clear. 5.7 ltr engine is ready when asked...

Worst Features

Car feels a bit heavy, but hey I came out of a Volvo C30- a big jump up for me. Haven't attempted to back it into a parking spot yet.
