2007 Dodge Charger

Muscle cars are back and one of the leaders of the pack is the 2007 Dodge Charger.

Although mostly a carryover from the previous year, Chrysler's SRT division is introducing the SRT8 Super Bee, a throwback to the 1968 debut. Although they sold for $3,000 at that time, restored models can fetch up to $100,000 today. Fortunately, you can snag the 2007 Charger Super Bee for just under $36,000.

The nameplate Charger only appeared in its last year, 1971. The Super Bee was launched in 1968 under the Dodge Coronet line. It boasts a Detonator Yellow exterior with a black hood, deck-lid face and Super Bee logos in front and back. The black and yellow color scheme is on the inside as well, with yellow on the seats, shift knob and steering wheel.

The 2007 Dodge Charger comes in other models that are carried over from 2006. The base styles, a four-door sedan and four-door sedan with all-wheel drive, are in the $22,600 to $25,240 range. The RT styles, a four-door sedan and an AWD four-door sedan, are $8-10k more expensive than base models.

Early reviews of the 2007 Charger RT styles rave about the Hemi power, the great styling, the rear-wheel ride, responsive handling, 18-inch rear wheels, value for the money spent and the new German technology. You can get it with five-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. The Hemi offers the most power and torque available since the legendary 426 Hemi of the 1960s and 70s.

The modern Hemi engine in the 2007 Charger is quieter than its ancestors, with less vibration. Another innovation is that four cylinders are deactivated faster than you can say Hemi when you don’t need the extra power. That improves fuel economy by up to 20 per cent.

The 2007 Dodge Charger comes with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and all-speed traction control with emergency braking assistance. It has a standard electronic stability feature that detects critical driving situations and helps the driver maintain a constant direction automatically, making it ideal to drive when the weather gets ugly. It seats five adults and has lots of trunk room.
