Performance and Style Updates Coming to 2019 Dodge Charger
While there are no dramatic changes in appearance coming to the 2019 Dodge Charger lineup, there are a few shuffles in the lineup and features as Dodge looks to fill gaps.
Starting at the top, the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will gain a new performance grille with dual inlets for better cooling, launch assist, line lock, after-run supercharger cooler, and torque reserve. The latter is the most interesting of the bunch, as it toys with the fuel and ignition timing to preload torque for a more powerful launch. A closer look at many of these parts show that the Charger raided the Challenger SRT Demon’s parts bin to get access to the performance-enhancing goodies.
The 2019 Charger R/T Scat Pack will also get the new grille, launch assist, and line lock, but it will also get a Scat Pack bee on the deck lid in the place of the R/T badge, a Dark Dub Plate instrument panel and Houndstooth cloth seats with a Scat Pack bee logo. Some extra options will also make their way to the 2019 Scat Pack lineup, and those include Dual Carbon stripes, a satin-black hood, and Bilstein three-mode adaptive dampers.
Moving to the Charger R/T, this sedan will get even more visual and performance updates. In the looks department, the 2019 Charger R/T will gain a new performance hood, fascia, sculpted side sills, spoiler, and optional 20-inch Satin Carbon or Black Noise wheels. Inside, the updates will include new Houndstooth bolstered performance seats, a new steering wheel with paddle shifters, Dodge Performance Pages on the 8.4-inch Uconnect system, and a Dark Dub Plate instrument panel. There will also be a new optional Cold Weather Package that will add a heated steering wheel and front seats.
At the base of the lineup, the 2019 Charger SXT will gain a new optional all-wheel-drive variant. This all-wheel-drive system will use an active transfer case and front-wheel disconnect to help it push fuel economy to up to 27 mpg highway. There will also be a few new options on the 2019 SXT model, including Caramel Nappa leather, Houndstooth cloth seats, Blacktop Package, and a Cold Weather Package.
Finally, the 2019 Charger GT will get a new performance hood, fascia, sculpted side sills, and spoiler. Inside, it will gain Dodge Performance Pages on the 8.4-inch Uconnect system, Houndstooh cloth performance seats with bolsters, a Dark Dub Plate instrument panel, and new 20-inch wheel options. It will also gain new performance features like an updated suspension, a 3.07-o-1 rear axle ratio, and an enhanced steering system with paddle shifters. The new Cold Weather Package will also be available with the 2019 Charger GT.
