The Dodge Charger - one of the biggest names from the muscle car era - powered its way out of its storied past and onto the stage at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Charger will create a new reputation for the Dodge legend, featuring a modern design to back up its 21st century muscle car power, sports car handling and cutting-edge technology.

With a 250-horsepower High Output V-6 engine or the optional 340-horsepower HEMI® engine powering large 18-inch rear wheels, the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger races into the car market with bold, provocative styling and substance without losing the convenience of a modern sedan.

"It's a car that evokes power and performance under the hood, yet provides everyday functionality and convenience," said Craig Love, Vice President - Rear-wheel-drive Product Team, Chrysler Group. "We have the proven technologies and the legendary HEMI engine that allow us to produce a modern rear-wheel-drive muscle car."

Performance, Safety & Security and Technology

The all-new 2006 Dodge Charger features rear-wheel drive with near 50/50 weight distribution and advanced technologies that offer superb ride and responsive handling in all surface and traction conditions. The Multiple Displacement System (MDS) on the Dodge Charger's HEMI engine seamlessly deactivates four cylinders in just 40 milliseconds - quicker than a blink of an eye - when full V-8 power is not needed, improving fuel economy by up to 20 percent. The HEMI engine with MDS completed more than 6.5 million customer-equivalent miles through the Chrysler Group's development and durability testing.

The Dodge Charger's standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is designed to electronically detect and assist in critical driving situations. It enhances driver control and helps maintain directional stability in adverse driving conditions - automatically. ESP constantly compares the driver's intended course with the vehicle's actual course and compensates for any differences.

ESP, combined with an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and All-speed Traction Control with Emergency Brake Assist, improves the Dodge Charger's traction, maneuverability and stability in all weather conditions.

The ABS keeps the car straight and retains steering capability when braking on slippery surfaces by preventing wheel lock-up. All-speed Traction Control enhances mobility and prevents wheel slip when accelerating on slippery surfaces.

"With the HEMI V-8 engine and MDS, the new Dodge Charger has more power per cubic inch than its ancestors and provides all the glory of the muscle car era more efficiently than ever before," said Love. "With modern technology, this Dodge Charger rides securely on the road, stays planted through the corners and stops with assurance."

A Modern Interpretation

The 2006 Dodge Charger races forward with modern coupe styling and four-door functionality.

A bold front, strong shoulders and fastback grab the attention of muscle car enthusiasts, while the car's performance, handling and power complete the package.

"The all-new Dodge Charger is here - with a bold and stunning design, and the performance to back it up - and it's worthy of the Charger name," said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President - Design, Chrysler Group. "The muscular body form, bold front end and coupe-like profile make the new Charger very fresh and contemporary in its execution."

The Dodge Charger interior has a driver-oriented cockpit designed with a performance mind-set. It is sporty, functional and simple, featuring a sleek instrument panel and Viper-inspired tunneled gauges highlighted with white faces and satin silver accent rings.

A silver trim bezel surrounding the shifter and additional silver accents in the center stack add just the right touch of brightness to the comfortable interior. The two-tone interior features a darker upper color and a lighter lower color, giving the cabin an open feeling.
