The Dodge Charger has been around for quite some time now, and every iteration of the car has been made to fit the textbook definition of American muscle.
Dodge engineers were very clear on what they wanted the car to be. At its core, the Charger is a superbly powerful vehicle and its devil may care persona is reflected even in details such as the paint jobs that it is available in, which have names such as White Knuckle, Octane Red, Maximum Steel and Destroyer Grey.
