September 1, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The 2014 Dodge Charger provides the ultimate combination of dramatic Dodge heritage styling, award-winning premium interiors, the reassurance of an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) “Top Safety Pick,” full-size spaciousness with best-in-class V-6 fuel efficiency and world-class handling and performance.
Like the popular Rallye Appearance Group and Blacktop Package, the new Redline Package on the 2014 Dodge Charger delivers more performance, style and a segment-exclusive studio-quality sound experience.
Available on the rear-wheel drive (RWD) 2014 Dodge Charger SXT and SXT Plus models, the Redline Package includes 20-inch Black Chrome wheels with a Redline Red lip and inner backbone for a one-of-a-kind look. In addition to the 20-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels, the package includes all-season performance tires, performance-tuned suspension, sport seats, rear body-color spoiler and exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre audio system.
Delivering more power and performance is a 300 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, featuring a cold-air induction system and sport-tuned dual-exhaust system with an enthusiast-desired sound. In addition, the segment-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission is upgraded with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and “Sport Mode.” With Sport Mode, gear changes are quicker and revs are held higher for even more performance-oriented acceleration and higher shift dynamics. For even more control, the driver can also use the die-cast steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and view gear selection through the full-color Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) centered in the Dodge Charger’s instrument cluster.
Best-in-class V-6 fuel economy with segment-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission
As the first domestic sport sedan to feature an eight-speed automatic transmission – the 2014 Dodge Charger with the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivers best-in-class fuel economy in rear-wheel-drive – up to 31 miles per gallon (mpg) – and all-wheel-drive (AWD) models – up to 27 mpg.
Once limited to premium import vehicles costing twice as much, the segment-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission expands the world-class power and fuel efficiency of the Dodge Charger SE (optional), Charger SXT and Charger SXT Plus. It delivers quicker acceleration, seamless shifts, improved performance and class-leading fuel efficiency, with respect to:
In addition, Dodge Charger with the eight-speed automatic delivers best-in-class mid-size V-6 fuel efficiency, but does so with the roominess of a full-size sedan, and the style only the brand’s iconic Charger can deliver.
From winding through twisty stretches of coastal road, to escaping away to a snow-covered ski resort, the 2014 Dodge Charger AWD models have a commanding design presence and the power and all-weather capability to carve through some of the worst precipitation Mother Nature can dish out.
With the aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivering best-in-class city and highway fuel economy (19/27 mpg), or legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine with 370 horsepower with four-cylinder mode Fuel Saver Technology, Dodge Charger’s intelligent AWD system features a segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle-disconnect system to improve real-world fuel economy. No other major automotive manufacturer offers the combination of these two independent technologies.
Dodge Charger’s AWD system seamlessly transitions between RWD and AWD with no driver intervention. When AWD is not required, the system automatically disconnects the front axle to maximize fuel economy, while still providing the outstanding fun-to-drive performance and handling inherent in rear-wheel-drive vehicles.
The 2014 Dodge Charger sedan’s Uconnect 8.4N system integrates award-winning Garmin navigation, voice recognition and SiriusXM Traffic with an intuitive user interface to make operating simple. With natural voice commands, the Uconnect 8.4N enables passengers to input street addresses and navigate to points of interest. And with the integrated SiriusXM Traffic, real-time traffic monitoring notifies the driver or enables the Garmin navigation to reroute due to congested throughways.
In addition to 3D buildings and terrain views, Uconnect 8.4N with integrated Garmin navigation features road signs and lane guidance that covers more than 60,000 intersections across the United States. Information is very realistic and intuitive, enabling drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and focus on the road.
For the Dodge brand, keeping drivers focused on the road is a priority and the Uconnect 8.4N and 8.4 model includes handsfree texting, to keep passengers even more connected through voice commands. With a compatible Bluetooth phone, Uconnect enables text-to-speech for incoming text messages and provides the driver with a list of popular responses for outgoing messages.
The partnership between Dodge and Beats By Dr. Dre brings music-studio sound to consumers in cars not just by adding speakers, but working with the music makers themselves to reproduce sound the way that it’s made in the studio. Instead of the traditional approach to automotive sound, entrusting lab coat-adorned engineers as the arbiters of musical taste, Beats by Dr. Dre founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine worked side-by-side with the engineering team at Chrysler Group to design and tune the 10-speaker audio system.
Beats by Dr. Dre audio technology available in the 2014 Dodge Charger includes a powerful 552-watt 12-channel amplifier that integrates the heart of the Beats proprietary equalizer algorithm, creating the high-definition sound required in professional recording studios. Delivering the mid- to high-range needed for studio-quality sound are three 3.5-inch speakers located in the instrument panel and two 3.5-inch speakers located in the rear doors. Two 6 x 9-inch front-door woofers deliver bass, while two 6 x 9-inch speakers and a center-mounted 8-inch speaker located in the rear-shelf area provide full-range audio. Maximizing how music genres from hip hop to Motown should sound and feel, an 8-inch Beats Audio trunk-mounted dual-voice coil subwoofer with sealed enclosure delivers tight, powerful, punchy bass.
The Dodge Charger has achieved 5-star safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The 5-star rating is the highest rating for safety by the Administration and measures vehicle safety performance in three categories, including front, side crashes and rollover crashes.
Dodge Charger achieved an overall 5-star vehicle safety score. The rating is a combination of frontal, side pole and barrier performance with the static stability factor accounting for the rollover rating. Dodge Charger also achieved high marks in rollover testing with a 4-star rating.
In addition, Dodge Charger was named a “Top Safety Pick” by the IIHS – its highest rating. The IIHS recognizes vehicles with outstanding crashworthiness in front, side, rollover and rear crashes. The Dodge flagship sedan received “good” ratings, the highest achievable, in all four categories.
To be considered, vehicles must have available ESC systems that significantly reduce crash risks. Dodge Charger has standard ESC. Other standard safety features include, full-length side-curtain airbags, seat-mounted side thorax air bags, driver’s knee bag, front-row reactive head restraints, Hill-start Assist, Rain Brake Support and Ready Alert Braking.
