Dodge radically streamlined its trim levels from 10 grades last year to five or six for 2019. The Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat receive performance updates, including Launch Assist and line lock (for performing burnouts). The SRT Hellcat also gets Torque Reserve and After-Run Chiller to cool down the supercharger as standard. The Scat Pack gets new performance options including 3-mode Bilstein adaptive damping suspension. AWD is available on the SXT only. GT and R/T trims get more standard performance gear like performance suspension and Bilstein shocks. A number of other new options are spread around the different grades.

The unique thing about the Dodge Charger is the unparalleled number of possible variations, but that does mean it can be tough to determine which is best for you. As such, we would at least make sure to try as many of them as possible, especially since you might find that you're perfectly happy with one of the less-powerful engines. Even the base V6 is plenty powerful and with its Super Track Pack, still allows you to have a bit of fun. Find a Dodge Charger for sale

2019 Chrysler 300 -- The mechanically related Chrysler 300 is the Charger's uptown sibling. That means you'll pay more, but you'll arguably get more. It's also more in keeping with other full-size sedans.
Used Dodge Charger -- Want a Charger, but can't afford a new SRT 392 or another of the high-powered upper trim levels? Well, that's what used and certified pre-owned cars are for. Don't count on getting a cheap Hellcat, though.
