2017 Dodge Charger vs. 2016 Chrysler 300 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Charger than in the Chrysler 300, due to the Dodge Charger's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Charger and the Chrysler 300 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Charger as you will with the Chrysler 300, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Dodge Charger is somewhat more expensive than the Chrysler 300. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Dodge Charger and the Chrysler 300 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Dodge Charger is about the same width as the Chrysler 300. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Charger takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chrysler 300.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Charger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chrysler 300.

Handling
The Dodge Charger has a smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 300, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Chrysler 300. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Charger and the Chrysler 300. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Dodge Charger as you will in the Chrysler 300.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Chrysler 300.
