Dodge has just released these first photos of the 2011 Charger sedan.

In a full release, Dodge says the 2011 Dodge Charger "will rev up showrooms during the fourth quarter of 2010."

Earlier this year, Chrysler began trickling out some images of its revamped 2011 lineup, including the 2011 Jeep Wrangler, 2011 Chrysler Town & Country, and the upcoming Fiat 500 Sport.

Today's release confirmed the Charger's heavily revised sheetmetal is a return of sorts to the flowing lines of some of Dodge's sedans from the 1990s--with hints of the Charger's Sixties ancestors, Chrysler says. In the release, the Charger's interior is played up as a "seamless" and "highly detailed" environment, though no official photos of the dash were released.

Among the details: Dodge says the new Charger's taillights are composed of 164 LED lamps.

Dodge also confirms its new V-6 engine will appear in the new sedan, along with the HEMI V-8: "The 2011 Dodge Charger SE and Charger Rallye feature a new 3.6-liter Pentastar engine. The legendary 5.7-liter HEMI™ V-8 engine with four-cylinder mode FuelSaver Technology also is included in the new Dodge Charger R/T lineup."

All-wheel drive makes a return in some models, and a new transfer case improves its fuel mileage by 5 percent, Chrysler adds.

New features on the Charger will include Bluetooth-driven in-car functions; Sirius TravelLink; keyless entry and pushbutton start; upgraded stability control; active cruise control; blind-spot monitors; and a rearview camera.

  3. Chris- Great post, American ingenuity at it's best. (I wonder if these things would sell better with a Challenger-ish tail light assembly...?)

  4. I find it amazing that they were able to make something as amazing as the new challenger but cant manage to fix their glaring mistakes with the charger.

  5. Steve, actually it's the new tail that I like the best. I think they've done a pretty good job of touching up the car and making it look a little more refined.. if you can say that about a gangsters car.
    Tier, I'd suggest you have that backwards.. the Challenger cant compete with the Mustang or even the Camaro, but this sedan is in a league of its own.. cheap RWD thrills.. at the cost of having to look like a gangster.

  6. The new Charger is a big step foward from the last model. Looks better, has a much improved drivetrain and a better interior. The last one sold like hotcakes, this one will sell better if economy holds together. I really like it and so will most people who appreciate an agressive look. This is certianly agressive and stylish. Nice job DODGE

  8. The other really cool bit about this car is that they didn't even have to reinvent the wheel to produce it. Same platform, no new engines (the engines are new for the car but not for the company) and the underpinnings probably aren't all that different from the current model. Likely a nice little retune (refinement) of the suspension..
    Looking forward to the testdrive write-up.

  10. JKD, 10 years to late for what? Please explain...
    Chris, The Challenger can't compete? If you mean as far as practical use the Mustang and Camaro don't have the space and comfort of the Challenger. By the way, Dodge has made improvements to the 2011 Challenger to better compete in performance. And another thing, the 3.6 is a new engine to the entire company. Not sure where you get your info but you should research before talking like you kow what your talking about...
    Tier, Glaring mistakes? Do you own a 2006-10 Charger? I do and I don't see any glaring mistakes that others like to repeat from things they have heard but not really experienced themselves...
    Trekrider, Do you have facts to back up your claim that Dodge has the sorst quality in the business? Or are you just another one of those that repeats the crap you hear from others??
