2009 Dodge Charger Ft Lauderdale FL

2009 Dodge Charger Fort Lauderdale Fl

Check out our Used Dodge Charger Inventory!!!

The Dodge Charger is a muscle car that can comfortably haul a family of 4. It makes a bold statement and seriously backs it up with a great deal of power. It comes in a wide range of models, all of which are comfortable cruisers and offer drivers a friendly haven from traffic and bumpy freeways. If you are looking for a sporty ride that can handle the rigors of family life, Dodge Charger is just what you are looking for!

The Charger illustrates just how multi-talented and accomplished today's high-performance cars are compared to the uni-dimensional hot rods of yesteryear. The Charger has all the pavement-ripping, gut-thumping power of the old muscle cars, but it's packaged with modern creature comforts and tempered by handling competency. With either V8 engine, the Charger is fast in a straight line, and it corners better than those muscle cars of the past. For 2009, the Charger gets a new taillight design, the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 gains power, and all-wheel-drive models get Active Transfer Case with Front-Axle Disconnect. SE models add alloy wheels, additional interior chrome trim and more equipment, while the SRT8 model adds more standard equipment, a retuned suspension, and new calibrations for the anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control systems. The SRT8 also adds a Super Bee package. LED lighting becomes standard for the front cup holders on all models, and the MyGIG hard-drive radio is now called UConnect Tunes and UConnect GPS when ordered with navigation system. Front side and curtain side air bags now optional instead of standard on most models.

Trims and Styling 2009 Dodge Charger

The base Dodge Charger SE has a 178-hp 2.7-liter V6 and a four-speed automatic transmission. The SXT uses a 250-hp 3.5-liter V6. The rear-drive SXT gets the four-speed automatic, while the all-wheel-drive (AWD) SXT is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with Dodge's AutoStick manual shift gate. SRT8 models have a 425-hp 6.1-liter V8 and the AutoStick.

The SXT adds an eight-way power adjustable driver's seat, a 60/40 split folding rear seat with fold-down center armrest, a 276-watt Boston Acoustics stereo, power-adjustable pedals, heated mirrors and fog lamps. The AWD SXT also adds performance disc brakes and P225/60R18 tires.

The R/T upgrades to leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated front seats, eight-way power front passenger seat, folding heated mirrors, automatic headlights and 18-inch tires. The R/T AWD adds all-wheel drive. The R/T Road/Track Performance package has sportier steering, front side airbags, curtain side airbags, sport seats with suede inserts, performance suspension, front and rear spoilers and P245/45R20 tires on aluminum wheels with black accents. The SRT8 adds dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights, remote engine starting, interior air filter, heated front seats, a Reconfigurable Display with performance pages, performance-tuned suspension, sport bucket seats, functional hood scoop, rear spoiler, a reprogrammed ESC system, Brembo brakes, Goodyear Supercar F1 tires on 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and a 180-mph speedometer. The Super Bee buzz model package comes with Hemi Orange paint, a serialized dash plaque, a special wheel design, silver Brembo brake calipers, UConnect Tunes hard-drive radio, orange seat accents, and hood and rear quarter panel decals.

Safety features that come standard on all Charger models include two-stage front airbags, tire-pressure monitor, and rear-seat LATCH child safety seat anchors. Antilock brakes with brake assist, traction control and electronic stability control, are standard on all but SE. Front side airbags and curtain side airbags for both seating rows are optional for all models. All-wheel drive is available for SXT and R/T models.

The Dodge Charger recalls the 1966 Dodge Coronet. The same design team that parented the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum designed the Charger. Dominating the front of the car are the trademark Dodge crosshairs, chromed on the SXT and R/T, body-color in the SE and SRT8, and flat black on the Daytona. Fog lamps on the SXT and higher models fill small, sculpted insets at the lower corners.

On the SE and SXT a single exhaust tip exits beneath the right-hand side, while the V8-powered models sport chrome-tipped, muscle car-idiom, dual exhausts.

Interior Styling and Features

Dodge Charger is a comfortable ride. Speed and comfort are two key factors that make this a great getaway from the normal everyday driving experience that we all know as the commute. The fabric-covered seats in the standard Dodge Charger are comfortable, with adequate thigh support and side bolstering. The Charger's dashboard is largely plastic. In addition to an AM/FM/CD stereo, buyers can opt for Dodge's UConnect Tunes or UConnect GPS systems. The rear entertainment system installation takes a novel, but well-integrated approach. The screen hides beneath a cover on the front center console when not in use, then pivots up between the front seats for viewing. Without the entertainment system, the center console functions as a traditional storage bin. This feature can provide readouts of lateral and longitudinal G forces, 1/8- and 1/4-mile time and speed, 0-60 mph time, and braking distance.

Rear-seat room is plentiful, thanks to the long wheelbase, even with the front seats at their rearmost positions. No head restraint for the rear center seat is provided, however, making this car better for four adults than five.

First Drive 2009

We've driven all the Charger models. The 5.7-liter V8, updated for 2009, makes the Charger R/T a muscle car. 2009 all-wheel-drive models come with Active Transfer Case and Front-axle Disconnect. When all-wheel drive isn't needed, the system automatically disconnects the front axle and opens the transfer case to reduce friction and rotational mass. The system reconnects the axle whenever AWD is needed, and drivers can opt to stay in AWD by shifting to AutoStick mode. Another light in the electronic vehicle information center indicates when the system switches modes. Dodge says Active Transfer Case and Front-axle Disconnect improves fuel economy by up to 1 mpg on the highway. We drove a Charger along winding, two-lane back roads in southern Virginia then at Virginia International Raceway near Danville. The Super Track Pack makes the Charger even sportier. Handling is a bit sharper, approaching SRT8 levels of performance, though the suspension is not quite as firm as the SRT8 suspension.

2009 Dodge Charger Conclusions

The Dodge Charger promises pony car excitement and style from a bygone era, and boy does it deliver. It does all of this while providing the roomy accommodations of a full-size car! The availability of all-wheel drive is a bonus for customers in the north, and the range of engines and suspension setups allows buyers to choose between fast and comfortable models. Your mother, or grandmother, probably would never go shopping for this car. But she'd enjoy driving it --whenever she could talk the men in the family into handing over the keys. says U.S. News For those shopping for a family sedan with some sports car flair, go for the Dodge Charger, you won't be disappointed.
