Many fans of this feisty sedan in the Rapid City and Belle Fourche areas have been asking us for a 2019 Dodge Charger preview. With the sporty car hitting showrooms soon, the team at Liberty Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT (CDJRF) is excited to tell you what we know so far about the 2019 Charger.

Check out our preview for a glimpse of what you can expect the newest iteration of the Dodge Charger to bring to the Sioux Falls roadways.1

2019 Dodge Charger: Engine Specs

As we've come to expect from the Dodge Charger, the 2019 model will hit the road equipped with several engine options, each one more powerful than the last.

The standard will be the classic 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that delivers 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. You can also upgrade this engine to a more powerful option that generates 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque.

For thrill-seekers who want even more from their engines, you'll have three others to choose from, as well:

  • 5.7L HEMI® V8: 370 horsepower, 395 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.4L 392 HEMI® V8: 485 horsepower, 475 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.2L HEMI® V8: 707 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque

All five engines will be paired with a Torqueflite® 8-speed automatic transmission with available Sport Mode and paddle shifters. This gives you the optimized performance and efficiency of an automatic, while letting you tap into this car's racing vibes and shift-on-demand when you desire more control.

Performance and Handling

As you hit the accelerator at the start of the race, you may experience a smooth, straight-line acceleration, even from a standstill, thanks to the Launch Control feature that will come standard on every 2019 Dodge Charger. This feature works by detecting wheel hop at launch and automatically adjusting engine torque to improve your grip.  

You will also have a choice between an all-wheel drivetrain (AWD) for improved traction on dirt tracks or standard rear-wheel drive (RWD). The RWD in the Charger features a nearly 50/50 front/rear weight distribution to allow for greater control while cornering and help you spring to the front of the pack.

Technology in the 2019 Dodge Charger

In addition to impressive performance capabilities, you can also expect some high-tech features in the 2019 Dodge Charger. For example, an available 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display is expected to sit in the center stack.

Here, you will be able to view incoming calls as well as music streaming and performance information. With available Uconnect® voice command and Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, you will be able to send and receive calls or change songs all by using voice commands. This means that your hands can stay safely on the wheel.

We also expect to see several smart safety features return, like Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking. This system monitors the road ahead for unseen hazards. If detected, it'll issue an alert or hit the brakes to try to prevent a potential collision.

Features like Blind Spot Monitoring and LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning are also expected to return in 2019.
