So we got a 2014 Dodge Charger SRT8
The current Dodge Charger is one of the most irrefutably great cars that we’ve ever come across. And that’s our opinion by just driving the V6 version from two years ago. This here is the SRT8 version. You know, the one with the 470 hp nuke under the bonnet.
The Charger looks great. Even two years since its launch, the big SRT8 attracts attention from the few bystanders who know what that black nose, pitted bonnet and extra badges mean.
The interior is basically standard Charger, which is no bad thing. There’s class-leading amounts of soft-touch materials in there even in the V6 version, and the SRT8 just adds thick leather sports seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel.
The only real flaw in the Charger’s design? That huge full-size spare wheel taking up space in that otherwise voluminous boot. This “quirk” has been a trademark of every SRT8 sedan we’ve driven in the past half-decade, and it’s a *facepalm* in an otherwise practical 4-door sports car that even your wife would approve of.
But that one flaw is easily forgiven once you put the pedal to the metal and get going. It’s basically got all the goods to outrun a BMW 550i at half the price. More in the full review.
