How it Started

The Dodge Charger celebrated its re-launch in 2006 but originated between 1966 and 1967 to compete with the Chevy Pontiac, another well-known muscle car. The first Dodge charger featured a swept fastback roofline and four bucket seats, and a full-length center console.

The 1966 Dodge Charger features a powerful 5.2-liter V8 engine that produced 230 horsepower. There was also a 5.9-liter V8 engine with 265 horsepower, a 6.3-liter V8 with 265 horsepower, and a 7.0-liter HEMI® with 425 horses and 490 pound-feet of torque. All models were manual at the time, which is still available in the newer builds.

More to Come

The 1968-1970 Dodge Charger Talladega Nights was one of the most noteworthy models to arrive with a 145 horsepower, 3.7-liter engine and iconic Coke bottle curves, vinyl-covered fastback roofline and menacing grille design with hidden headlights that made this model one for the books.

Soon, most Dodge Charger models featured a split-grille design that you can see today. From about 1981 to 1987, the Dodge Charger was working on a comeback but featured the "wrong-wheel drive," which didn't appeal to many customers but was competing closely with the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang.

A new Era

From 206-2010, the Dodge Charger took on a more modern look and brought into the picture the new R/T Concept with impressive design features and more aggressive grille designs.
