Dodge Charger SRT 392 Review
Posted on January 26, 2020
The classic muscle car is back, and it's more powerful than ever. In a day and age when small electric cars glide slowly and silently down the road, the 2016 Dodge Charger SRT 392 is a throwback to a time when you could hear and feel a car from a block away. If you love cars as much as we do at North York Chrysler, we think you'll fall hard for the 2016 Dodge Charger SRT 392. Let's take a closer look to see what all the buzz is about.
It's hard to talk about any muscle car without first discussing the engine. There are not many sedans on the road today that can match the standard engine found on this model. You will be blown away by the 6.4-liter V8 SRT HEMI engine with FuelSaver MDS that produces an impressive 485 horsepower and 485 lb.ft. of torque. Having full control of this behemoth of engine is not a problem due to the AutoStick/TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, high-performance suspension, electric power steering, and anti-spin rear differential with 3.09 rear axle ratio and 230 mm rear axle. In a surprising twist, this rear-wheel drive powerhouse actually offers decent fuel efficiency with 9.5L/100 KM highway and 15.7L/100 KM city.*
Drivetrain & Safety Features
Since you'll be capable of traveling at higher speeds (please always obey all local speed limits!) you'll be happy to know that safety is at the heart of the 2016 Dodge Charger SRT 392.

Body Styling & Technological Features
Having one of the most powerful and safe cars on the road is great, but what would a modern muscle car be without style, technology, and comfort? The 2016 Dodge Charger SRT 392 has all these things and a lot more.
