Dodge Charger 2012

2012 Dodge Charger seamlessly merges modern, aerodynamic style with nods to its storied heritage. The sculpted body flaunts scalloped doors, a dual scalloped hood, and the Dodge Charger throwback styling. The signature Dodge grille features a distinct four quadrant crosshair design with Black Satin inset and chrome surround. It’s the perfect balance of blackout to brightwork. A laser-brazed roof eliminates roof ditch moldings for a purely premium appearance. Standard automatic quad halogen reflector headlamps with Gloss Black bezels or available low beam High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps project light and attitude with equal authority. Available SmartBeam headlamps automatically and instantly adjust brightness and intensity when approaching forward lights from another vehicle are detected. Dodge Charger has always stood
for standing out.

The interior of the 2012 Dodge Charger is no exception. The design is influenced by a deep muscle car heritage while the comfort and exceptionally designed details are all 21st century. Seat surfaces are covered in either premium cloth or available Nappa leather trim. All pillars are wrapped in fabric, which speaks volumes to craftsmanship and refinement. Armrests, door trim panels, and the instrument panel all feature soft-touch materials. Stunning LED lighting illuminates the door pulls, center console, and cup holders, and is available in the footwells, map pockets, and overhead console. A uniquely executed aluminum bezel framework for the entire instrument panel cluster provides a seamless flow-through uniformity to its design and encompasses the available 8.4-inch touch screen, the largest in its class. Leave it to Charger to impose a powerful presence inside and out.

The 3.6-liter DOHC Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Pentastar V6 engine draws on advanced automotive engine technology for outstanding power and an exceptional blend of high torque, best-inclass fuel economy of 31 hwy mpg with available 8-speed transmission, low emissions, and first-rate noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) control. The numbers speak volumes best-in-class standard V6 292 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque. The performance story only gets better when Charger’s best-in-class horsepower is coupled with best-in-class 31 highway mpg; that’s mid-size fuel efficiency in a full-size car. The available Charger 5.7-liter HEMI Variable Valve Timing (VVT) V8 engine gives drivers a remarkable 25 hwy mpg. The result is a stunning combination of 370 horsepower, 395 lb-ft of torque, and the best-in-class combination of available V8 horsepower and fuel economy. Standard on Charger R/T. It pushes back and powers ahead with an impressive 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque making Dodge Charger SRT8 the most powerful V8 sedan in its class. This power is engagedover a wider rpm range through the new Active Valve Exhaust System. An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with integrated cam phasing provide maximum low-end torque for impressive standing starts while optimizing high-end power. Standard on SRT8.

While the performance is aggressive, the cabin was designed to be inviting. Immediately you’ll notice the premium soft-touch materials, available distinct interior color combinations, and upscale accent finishes. Less noticeable but truly impactful are touches like the dual-laminated windshield and front-door side glass, body-cavity silencing foam, under-flush roll-framed doors with triple seals, and noise-dampening lined wheel wells that work together to keep the cabin quiet. The ride is made even more enjoyable by available heated front and rear seats, a standard six-way power driver’s seat, or the available 12-way driver and front-passenger seats. Standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats with available heat offer not only great flexibility, but comfort too. Available features include new sport seats, in leather or cloth, and high-performance leather-trimmed seats with ventilation on Dodge SRT8 and Dodge R/T Road & Track. (Late availability.)

Experience the latest in automotive technology with the available all-new 8-speed transmission coupled with a new E-shifter or available die-cast steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for manual shifting capability. Let your hands and eyes wander, noticing the tremendous attention to detail. The center console lifts for the easy access of all passengers and has space for change, travel essentials, and has multiple ports (aux, 12-volt, and USB) for personal electronic devices. A tambour door leads to dual illuminated cup holders with available cooled/heated cup holders that work independently of each other. The sculpted instrument panel features a premium soft-touch finish. A seamless, real billeted aluminum bezel insert runs through the instrument panel, and is used in the center console bezel for a race-inspired feel. All steering wheels have front-mounted backlit cruise and EVIC/customer-programmable display controls, and audio controls located on the rear surface.
Opt for the available full-circumference heated steering wheel and keep your hands warm on even the coldest of mornings.

This is not an experiment. This is not an appearance package that’s been influenced by anything superficial. No, this is the most powerful V8 sedan in its class, tightly packaged in the unmistakable skin of a Charger. An intense 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque arrive courtesy of a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine.
