2013 Dodge Charger R/T AWD Review

With roots dating back to 1964, the Dodge Charger has long been associated with classic American muscle. Over half a century later, the Charger R/T AWD continues to impress with its 370-horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and road-hugging all-wheel drive. Our Pitch Black tester boasted bold lines that recalled the sports car’s heritage, while the interior came tricked out with cool amenities like a navigation system with rear camera, keyless entry and start/stop, and a 552-amplifier with ten speakers and a subwoofer.
