1966 Dodge Charger

History of the Dodge Charger

Being one of the original muscle cars, the Dodge Charger is an iconic vehicle in American history. First introduced as a concept back in 1946, the public didn’t show much interest in the revolutionary new vehicle, so Dodge decided to wait to release it. 20 years later, in 1966, the first Dodge Charger was released, and the rest is history.

The first-generation Dodge Charger was designed to be a high-speed street racer with a fastback roof design and full-width tail lamps. Although based off of the Coronet, early Dodge Chargers could easily be mistaken for a Dodge Challenger given that Dodge Chargers also came with a two-door setup. 

The original Dodge Charger was big, having a total length of 203.6 inches. Giving the Charger its unique look was its full-width convex grills and hidden headlights up front and full-width tail lights in the back. The first generation Charger was not a major hit, but it gained enough popularity to survive to a second generation, which was when the Charger began to garner fans and attention.

Capturing the attention of car fanatics back in the 70s, the second generation of Chargers impressed. The styling was unlike anyone had ever seen, and was one of the best looking cars of its time. The new and attractive styling wasn’t the only thing that made the second gen Charger so popular though. Dodge gave this model an impressive 375-horsepower V8 engine, which tore up the track and made heads turn.

Soon after though, the Charger was discontinued. It wasn’t brought back till the 1980s, and it had changed a significant amount. The 1980s version of the Charger was a hatchback three-door coupe that was paired with front-wheel drive. This era of the Charger brought us the iconic Shelby model, which offered more power and better handling. 

The Charger was again discontinued, but made its second come back in 2006, and has remained in production ever since. The 2006 model of the Charger had four doors, but its styling paid tribute to the models from the ’60s and ’70s. Dodge’s dedication to honoring the original style of their first and second generation Chargers, as well as continuing to revolutionize the performance and speed capabilities, makes for an impressive modern Charger. The newest Charger, the 2022 model, can get up to an incredible 797 horsepower. 

If you’re interested in a Dodge Charger, come on down to Briggs Dodge Ram of Topeka. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff would love to answer any questions you have, and get you set up in the ride of your choice.

2010 Dodge Viper

Top Five Fastest Dodge Production Cars

Dodge has a long history of producing high quality, fast vehicles. Throughout the years, Dodge has been at the forefront of speed, and today we’re going to take a look at the 5 fastest vehicles Dodge has produced.

2010 Viper ACR

Built for pure speed, the Dodge Viper ACR was incredibly dominant, and commanded great respect during its reign. Back then, Dodge said that the SRT had “ taken the ultimate American sports car and injected it with an extra dose of racing DNA.” Aerodynamics was one way of making it special, while autoclaved carbon fiber helped to reduce weight. This version of the Viper was way ahead of its time, as it’s the only vehicle on this list that doesn’t fall within the last 5 years.

2017 Viper ACR

One of the elements that make this Dodge special is that it marks the end of the Viper’s fifth generation. Fans have been anticipating the comeback of this nameplate, but there’s been no news of a comeback yet. Don’t lose hope, though. The 2017 version of the Viper was equipped with the powerful 8.4-liter V10, which produced 645 horsepower. The last model of the Viper (so far) also had a light clutch and 6-speed manual transmission, making it one of the most impressive vehicles of its time.

2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock

Dodge knows how to give their fans power. The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock did just this, giving owners an impressive 807 horsepower. The Super Stock takes 3.25 seconds from 0-60 mph. This is a car made to blow away all competition at the drag strip, and it certainly does this. Taking pride as the world’s most powerful muscle car, the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT is extremely impressive.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has a fitting name. This Challenger is a demon on the road, sporting an insane 808 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine. If this somehow wasn’t enough power, owners have the option of filling up their 2018 Demon with 100-plus high-octane race fuel, cranking the horsepower up to 840. The 2018 Challenger SRT Demon still has value today, being one of the most sought after Dodge Vehicles due to its speed, and personality.

2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody

Every automaker wants to take home the title of the greatest of all time, just a select few get there. The all-new 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is well on the path to clinching this title with its impressive performance. Each element of the design is built to enhance aerodynamic performance and cooling. It cuts a good figure as a true performance vehicle and a large family sedan with plenty of room for five passengers. It takes only 3.55 seconds to hit 60 mph and top speed is capped at 200 mph.

As you can see, Dodge has a history of producing fast, performance vehicles that impress. If you’re interested in checking out the new Charger and Challenger models, come on down to Briggs Dodge Ram of Topeka. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff would love to help you out and answer any questions you may have.
