Dodge Teases Facelifted Charger Along With Refreshed Challenger


We wondered if the Charger would also receive a facelift.

Last week, Dodge created some hype when it teased a fresh face for the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The 2019 Challenger won't be an all new model, but it will receive some new upgrades, like a functional dual-snorkel hood. Also rumored is an optional drag package for the Hellcat, which would raise power from 700 horsepower to 725. Since the Challenger and Charger are so similar, we expected Dodge to also update its four-door sedan along with its two-door coupe. As we predicted, the 2019 Charger will also receive an update.

Even less information is known about the 2019 Charger. Dodge only released a single image of the car's new front fascia, so we don't have much to go on to predict other changes on the car. In a statement, the company said it is "doubling down with upgrades inside and out for the 2019 model year." Among the obvious changes, the Charger will get a new grille design, which gives the car a more sinister look and accentuates the car's width. The single image doesn't extend to the hood, so we can't see whether Dodge will give the Charger the dual-snorkel hood from the Challenger.
