Trim Levels (Exterior)

The 2019 Dodge Charger comes in 5 trim levels: the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat. All trims come with chrome-tipped exhaust, body-colored door handles and bumpers, lightly tinted windows, fully automatic projector-beam halogen headlights, and a black grille.
Exterior features on the base SXT include 17-inch alloy wheels and power door mirrors, while the all-wheel-drive version of the SXT adds 19-inch wheels, LED fog lights, a spoiler, and heated side mirrors. Next in line are the GT and R/T, which add 20-inch wheels and are nearly identical, except that the R/T has a larger engine. Both the R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat both sport an all-new black grille that boasts dual air inlets, as well as optional upgrades like pinstripes, metallic paint, body stripes, two-tone paint, door-mirror memory settings, a power moonroof, and special badging.

Engine (Power)

The 2019 Dodge Charger's base engine, standard on the SXT and GT, is a 3.6-liter V-6 that is paired with an eight-speed transmission. This engine delivers 260 pound-feet of torque and 292 horsepower for the SXT and 300 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque for the GT. The R/T gets a 5.7-liter V-8 that produces 395 pound-feet of torque and 370 horsepower, while the R/T Scat Pack ups the ante with a 6.4-liter V-8 engine that pumps out 475 pound-feet of torque and 485 horsepower. Finally, the all-powerful SRT Hellcat packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 beneath its hood, churning out 650 pound-feet of torque and 707 horsepower.

Rear-wheel drive (RWD) comes standard on all trim levels of the 2019 Dodge Charger, although all-wheel drive (AWD) is available as an upgrade on the GT and SXT. Both the GT and R/T trims come stocked with a performance hood, spoiler, side sills, and fascia that all work together to improve the aerodynamics and provide a better driving experience. The R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat both come standard with launch assist, which detects wheel hop at launch and automatically modifies the torque to regain the vehicle's grip on the road. With the SRT Hellcat, you'll also get an after-run chiller and upgraded suspension tuning and steering.


The 2019 Dodge Charger is just as gorgeous and comfortable on the inside, with all trims equipped with a plethora of standard features like power-adjustable front seats, leather and metal-look interior accents, a power-reclining driver's seat, front sport seats, a leather shift knob, SiriusXM AM/FM satellite, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, voice-activated radio, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot, the Uconnect infotainment system with either a 7- or 8.4-inch touch screen, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The GT and R/T add a sport steering wheel, extra storage, and a 60/40 split rear bench seat. The R/T Scat Pack turns up the heat with heated front seats and a power-reclining passenger's seat. And finally, the SRT Hellcat includes a power-adjustable steering wheel, ventilated front seats, all-leather upholstery, and navigation.

Safety Features

The 2019 Dodge Charger comes with plenty of standard safety features like six occupant-sensing air bags, an engine immobilizer, traction control, brake assist, electronic stability control with anti-roll, break-resistant glass, and side-impact bars. With the optional Technology Group package, you will get additional safety features like forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.
