Four-Door Fastback Coupe Styling With Iconic Dodge Performance Cues
The efficient and aerodynamic exterior of the 2011 Dodge Charger is heavily inspired by the classic second-generation Charger from the late 1960s, featuring a design that is sure to strike the emotional chords of Dodge performance enthusiasts of all generations.
With its sinister "ready to attack the road" face, the all-new Dodge Charger puts the world's best E-segment sedan competitors between its new "split crosshair" signature grille. This highly detailed grille design is more intricate with a black satin inset set into the chromed surrounds. A split hexagon designed grate sets behind the chromed grille and carries the new "Dodge" nameplate.
With direct design influence from the 1968 to 1970 Dodge Charger coupes, the aluminum hood features dual "scallops" that bring a sculptured, performance look to the front end. The design heritage continues with large bodyside scallops that deliver a striking A-line across the doors and hark back to Dodge Charger's high-performance heritage. Running front-to-rear is the signature horizontal "coke bottle" door and body-side shape that provide front and rear fenders with muscular proportions for a menacing silhouette.
The flared bodysides of the Dodge four-door fastback coupe are dramatically pronounced, providing 6 inches of offset between the roof rails and shoulder lines, and giving the all-new Dodge Charger its "planted" performance stance, reminiscent of the second-generation coupes. With its performance-sculpted surfaces surrounding the wheels, Dodge Charger's tire-to-body fitment has been tightened by a full 8 mm versus the previous model to deliver a stronger, more athletic appearance and improve aerodynamics. A deck-lid spoiler improves aerodynamics and Dodge attitude. It is available on the Charger SE and standard on Charger R/T.
Defining the fastback's wide stance is an all-new signature taillamp design that incorporates 164 illuminating LEDs to form its signature "racetrack" graphic and gives the new Charger its unmistakable character from blocks away.
Performance Infused Cockpit With World-Class Craftsmanship And Materials
The 2011 Dodge Charger's interior cockpit is meant to be an enthusiast office. The all-new design features premium materials throughout.
Transmitting the chassis' world-class feel of the road, the all-new Charger features a new thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel for enhanced performance feel and grip.
Crafted in world-class materials, Charger's passengers are surrounded with comfort, craftsmanship and style, thanks to premium soft-touch materials and four available distinct interior color combinations. The all-new 2011 Dodge Charger's state-of-the-art Uconnect(R) Touch integrates world-class infotainment and convenience technologies to keep passengers connected, comfortable and secure.
