We like the future classics at Streetside, too, and that's why a
car like this 2006 Dodge Charger R/T gets us excited. It combines
the classic muscle car Hemi V8 spirit with a great suspension,
plenty of luxuries, and room for the whole family. And now it's all
available for quite an affordable price.
Doge did a fantastic job resurrecting the Charger name. After all, they took the sensibility of a full-sized family sedan and wrapped it in quite a menacing package. The deep slope in the front fenders gives this the narrow-eyed look of the Viper, and the kick-up incorporated in the rear door panels instantly evoke memories of the Chargers of the '60s. The factory-correct Burgundy Red Metallic is a great aggressive-looking color. Plus, the large 18-inch factory alloys and dual exhaust tips add some flair to this package.
Modern cars are great for offering modern features. And so you'll love sitting down in the leather bucket seat and power adjusting it to the perfect driving position. These seats show proper wear for a car of this age/mileage, and the light gray leather still looks great against the darker gray tones of the dash and center console. Plus, you have all the right luxury features, including dual zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, heated seats, power windows, dual front airbags, cruise control, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and a power sunroof. The factory AM/FM/CD stereo is even modern enough to have an aux input for your iPod. So it has everything you want, and the massive rear seat room means you're not the only ones who's comfortable for the long haul.
Under the hood is what makes the Charger such a great modern classic. As a performance R/T model this has its original 5.7-liter Hemi V8. It looks great as the glossy black heart of this tidy red engine bay. More importantly, this Hemi really lives up to its muscle car heritage by being rated at 340 horsepower right out of the box. That also means a great muscle car sound out of the dual exhaust. But the real desire is what a modern car can do with all this power. Unlike its '60s-style relative, this Charger has a five-speed automatic transmission, which gives it the right gearing to be both a fast mover and an overdrive cruiser. Plus, you get a fully independent suspension for terrific grip. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and ABS, and you intently understand the appeal of owning a modern V8 machine.
Style, luxury, and plenty of power - this Charger is a terrific total package at a terrific price. So don't let it slip away, call today!
