From Dodge press: 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.
The 2010 Dodge Charger R/T offers exceptional performance with the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, producing 368 horsepower (274 kW) and 395 lb.-ft. (536 N•m) of torque and features fuel-saving Multi-displacement System (MDS) technology that provides as much as a 20-percent improvement in fuel economy.
Two other engines are available. A 2.7-liter V-6 engine generates 178 horsepower (133 kW) @ 5,500 rpm and 190 lb.-ft. (258 N•m) of torque @ 4,000 rpm. The 3.5-liter High Output V-6 engine generates 250 horsepower (186 kW) @ 6,400 rpm and 250 lb.-ft. (340 N•m) of torque @ 3,800 rpm.
