The first Charger was a 1964 show car based on the Dodge Polara and fitted with a 426 Wedge V8 engine. The first production Charger, based on the Dodge Coronet, was introduced as a 1966 model. There were several different vehicles bearing the Charger nameplate built on three different platforms and sizes, all bearing the Charger nameplate. Although the name is associated with the late-1960s performance model in the Dodge range, it was also used on personal luxury coupes during the late-1970s and on front-wheel drive subcompact hatchbacks during the 1980s.
In 1999, Dodge introduced a new Charger R/T concept car. It took many styling cues from the 1960s Chargers, sharing their long nose and rearward cab, but was shorter at 187 in (4,750 mm), compared to 203 in (5,156 mm) for the 1966 Charger. It was also 650 lb (295 kg) lighter. It featured a four-door sedan body design, whereas all the previous production Chargers had two doors.
It was a return to a rear-wheel drive sedan platform Dodge had not offered since the mid-size Dodge Diplomat had been discontinued in 1989.
The 2011 LD Charger underwent both exterior and interior changes, taking some styling cues from the 1968–1970 models. It features a completely new body with the most striking changes being the redesigned fascia and hood section, modified "racetrack" vintage-style taillights and a new dashboard. Silver aluminum wheels became standard equipment over plastic hubcaps.
The Charger SRT8 returned as 2012 model, which was previewed at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show. Chrysler began putting the Dodge logo with slanted red rectangles on the grilles of the SRT8 halfway through the 2012 model year.
The Dodge Charger SRT8 appears as a Tier 3 vehicle.
