According to latest reports, 2018 Dodge Charger will come completely redesigned and reengineered. These are news pretty much confirmed by the company itself. This legendary car is in production for over five decades, and it is definitely one of the best-known nameplates in American car industry. During all these years, we saw plenty of modifications. Current model is much different compared to those iconic models from 60’s. However, it is still an excellent car. In near future, this model will completely change its manner once again. It will come based on Alfa Romeo platform, featuring completely new styling, with different body and, most likely, with completely new engine lineup.
2018 Dodge Charger redesign
The 2018 Dodge Charger is expected to come completely redesigned. This will happen somewhere in about two years. New model will come during 2018. According to various reports, new model will come with many significant changes. First of all, it will ride on completely new platform, borrowed from Fiat. It is the same platform that is used for Alfa Romeo Giulia. This means that new mode will probably be smaller. Also, this platform will bring plenty of advantages. The 2018 Dodge Charger will be made mostly of lightweight materials, which will provide significant weight loss, which means better performances.
2018 Dodge Charger changes
Also, next generation of this iconic nameplate will once again come with completely changed manner. Unlike current model, which is a 4-door sedan, new model will feature a coupe-like body style. Besides new body style, we will also see completely new styling, way different from current model. According to some reports, 2018 Charger will combine design elements from 1999 Dodge Charged R/T Concept with brand’s latest design language. This should provide a modern and attractive look, which will feature many classic elements too.
2018 Dodge Charger engine
This aspect of the 2018 Dodge Charger is probably the biggest mystery. We still have no clue about engines for new model. According to the latest announcements from the company, there will be no more HEMI engines in offer. Company plans to leave big V8 engine, in favor for some smaller and more efficient units. If this refers to the Dodge models too, we will be hugely disappointed. Simply, it is hard to imagine this model with some V6, or even four-cylinder unit borrowed from Alfa Romeo.
2018 Dodge Charger release date
It is still hard to predict more precise date of launch, but we believe that 2018 Dodge Charger will come in about two years.
