The 2022 Dodge Charger is a five passenger, full-size sedan. Pitched as a modern muscle car, the 2022 Charger comes with a range of V6 and V8 engines, rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and a hood scoop for almost every trim level.
2022 Dodge Charger Configurations
Seven versions of the Charger are available:
- Charger SXT — This is the rental-car special, equipped with a V6 engine. But you can dress it up with nice wheels, leather seats, and a slew of comfort features and safety technologies
- Charger GT — Take a Charger SXT, add sporty design cues and a hood scoop, and you’ve got the Charger GT
- Charger R/T — The Charger R/T is the same as the Charger GT, but it is equipped with a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine. A Daytona Edition is available
- Charger Scat Pack — For more performance, the Charger Scat Pack delivers up to 485 hp from a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine. Daytona Edition trim is available
- Charger Scat Pack Widebody — As its name implies, this is a Charger Scat Pack with revised bodywork that adds big fender flares. It also comes with braking and suspension upgrades
- Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody — A supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine supplies 717 hp and a top speed of 196 mph
- Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody — This is the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, according to Dodge. With 797 hp, it accelerates to 60 in 3.6 seconds and can reach 203 mph
What’s New for the 2022 Dodge Charger?
Following the debut of the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody in 2021, complete with a supercharged V8 making 797 hp and 707 lb.-ft.-ft. of torque, Dodge takes a breather for 2022. Every version of the Charger now offers a Deluxe Security Alarm as standard or optional equipment. Also, new and self-explanatory Hemi Orange and SRT Black option packages debut.
Dodge Charger Competitors for 2022
Aside from the Chrysler 300, nothing quite like the Dodge Charger exists. At the low end of the lineup, the Hyundai Sonata N Line, Kia K5 GT, Toyota Avalon TRD, and Toyota Camry TRD might qualify as alternatives. At the high end, the Charger is priced in luxury territory but delivers monstrous power and value compared to an equivalently priced Audi, BMW, or Mercedes.

Though it’s built in Canada, the 2022 Dodge Charger represents pure American muscle in a 4-door sedan body style. Horsepower ratings range up to 797, prices climb above $80,000, and the attitude is dialed up to 11.
