Share Download Print 2010 Dodge Charger Bold, Powerful and Practical—2010 Dodge Charger a Year-round Performance Sedan 2010 DODGE CHARGER NEW FOR 2010 Body-color sill cladding (all models) Chromed grille with black insert (standard on Charger SE) Supplemental Side-curtain Air Bags (standard on all models) Auburn Hills, Mich. August 31, 2009 - The 2010 Dodge Charger is a modern, four-door coupe that combines rear-wheel-drive muscle-car power, sports-car handling, leading-edge technology and five-passenger comfort to deliver a thrilling, yet fuel-efficient driving experience. Modern technologies including Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and All-speed Traction Control make it possible to bring a 21st-century muscle car to market with the ride and handling characteristics inherent in rear-wheel drive. 2010 Dodge Charger rear-wheel-drive models feature outstanding performance and handling, near 50-50 weight distribution and unique suspension tuning for driving excitement. All-wheel-drive Dodge Charger models feature an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect. No other major manufacturer offers these two independent technologies together. The unique system seamlessly transitions between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive with no driver intervention. When all-wheel drive is not required, the system automatically disconnects the front axle to maximize fuel economy while still providing the outstanding performance and handling inherent in rear-wheel drive. For even more handling performance, the Road/Track Performance Group offers P245/45R20 all-season performance tires and 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels. Tuned for firmer handling, this package is available on the V-8 HEMI-powered Dodge Charger R/T model and includes performance heated front seats with suede inserts, rear deck-lid and front fascia spoilers, load-leveling and height-control shocks, and performance suspension, steering, brakes, exhaust and induction system. In addition to the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8-powered Dodge Charger R/T, a Super Track Pack handling package offers even more driving excitement with 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car tires, front and rear Nivomat self-leveling shock-absorbers, a larger rear stabilizer bar, a 3.06 rear-axle ratio and less-intrusive ESC.
