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. Its sculpted all-new body is a conscious nod to its deep heritage and muscle-car roots. The Charger’s profile is the result of countless hours in the wind tunnel, with its lower hood line, faster windshield and radically raked backlight to its tighter wheel openings, lower sill and race-car-like flat underbody. The aluminum hood features dual “scallops” that bring a sculptured, performance look to the front end, while large body-side scallops deliver a striking undulating A-line across the doors. Iconic horizontal "coke bottle" or "double-diamond" body-side styling runs the length of the car to create a tapering silhouette accented with muscular front and rear fenders. An all-new signature taillamp design incorporates 164 illuminating LEDs to form its signature "racetrack" graphic to give the new Charger its unmistakable character. 

 

The 2011 Dodge Charger’s interior cockpit is consists of premium materials throughout. The all-new Charger features a new thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel for enhanced performance feel and grip. Charger’s passengers will be surrounded with comfort, craftsmanship and style, thanks to premium soft-touch materials and four available distinct interior color combinations.

In addition, Charger's unibody packages material and structural design improvements includes dual-pane acoustic windshield and front-door side glass, body-cavity silencing foam, under-flush roll-framed doors with triple seals and acoustic wheel-well liners. All designed to absorb road noise and quiet the cabin.
