Wedge V8 engine The first production Charger based on the Dodge Coronet was introduced as a 1966 model There were several different vehicles bearing the Charger nameplate built on three different platforms and sizes all bearing the Charger nameplate Although the name is associated with the late1960s performance model in the Dodge range it was also used on personal luxury coupes during the late1970s and on frontwheel drive subcompact hatchbacks during the 1980s In 1999 Dodge introduced a new Charger RT concept car It took many styling cues from the 1960s Chargers sharing their long nose and rearward cab but was shorter at 187 in 4750 mm compared to 203 in 5156 mm for the 1966 Charger It was also 650 lb 295 kg lighter It featured a fourdoor sedan body design whereas all the previous production Chargers had two doors It was a return to a rear wheel drive platform Dodge had not offered since the Dodge St Regis which stopped production in 1981 The smaller Dodge Diplomat continued to be a rear wheel drive sedan until front wheel drive was the only platform offered with the Dodge Monaco of 1990 First generation 2006–2010edit Year Model Engine Power Torque 2006–2010 SE 2736 cc 2 736

derived from the MercedesBenz 4MATIC technology From 2007 to 2008 the AWD system is engaged all the time routing approximately 60 of the power to the rear wheels and 40 of the power to the front wheels The 2009 Charger AWD utilized the TorqueonDemand system manufactured by Borg Warner which disconnects the front axles until extra traction is needed This results in a slight boost in fuel economy while retaining the same maximum power split to the front wheels After three years of production an update for 2009 models was made This included moving the decklids CHARGER badge from the left to the right making way for DODGE at the left Tail lamps were also revised 2008 models had seen minor revisions to the interior a new center console and switchgear changes Daytona RTedit Dodge

Sprint Cup teams starting in 2005 thru to 2012 Although NASCAR stock cars bear only a slight resemblance to actual street cars Dodges 2005 and 2006 NASCAR entries were based on the Charger silhouette replacing the previous Dodge Intrepid Unlike the Intrepid the Charger shares rearwheel drive and a V8 engine with its NASCAR counterparts During the 2007 NASCAR season the Charger was used in all non Car of Tomorrow races and the Dodge Avenger was used in all Car of Tomorrow races The Car of Tomorrow was used exclusively in 2008 However the Avenger Car of Tomorrow was redesignated as a Charger RT
