The Dodge Charger built its reputation on a foundation of raw power and unignorable presence. While that reputation is well earned in the 2018 Dodge Charger, its performance-first legacy might cause you to overlook all the sedan has to offer in terms of practicality. Because your safety and the safety of your passengers is of the utmost importance, the new Dodge Charger is built to provide a degree of peace of mind commensurate to its impressive power.
The foundation of a safe vehicle is its construction, and the 2018 Dodge Charger has one of the most dependable constructions in the business. Underlying that powerful Charger body is a high-strength steel frame that promises ample protection in the unfortunate event of a collision. Furthermore, high-strength steel beams have been welded into all four doors to provide an extra layer of protection against side-impact collisions.
Providing added support in a collision are a number of standard safety airbags: The Charger offers multistage front airbags, supplemental full-length side-curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side pelvic-thoracic airbags and a knee-blocker airbag on the driver’s side. To reduce the potential for head and neck injuries, active front head restraints offer support in rear collision situations.
While its strong construction makes the 2018 Dodge Charger a safer choice in the event of an accident, the sedan’s litany of standard and available safety technologies play a key part in helping you avoid them in the first place. These features include available driver-assistive features like Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring and Automatic High-Beam Headlamps. These features provide exceptional confidence and allow you to be a more alert and aware driver.
The Charger boasts its fair share of standard safety features as well, including a ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera and ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System that combine to make pulling out of a parking spot in a high-traffic area less stressful. When it comes to coming to a stop, the Charger makes it easier with Ready Alert Braking, which detects the quick release of the accelerator and preps the brakes automatically, and Rain Brake Support, which provides more certainty when stopping on slick surfaces. Electronic Stability Control provides additional directional control on slick or icy roads, keeping you moving forward no matter the weather.
Known for its exciting performance and its imposing curb appeal, the Dodge Charger does not want for arguably the most essential aspect of any drive: safety. With intelligent construction and cutting-edge technology, the 2018 Dodge Charger is a sports sedan that provides confidence in more ways than one.
