2014 Dodge Charger vs. 2014 Ford Fusion Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Dodge Charger offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Ford Fusion with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Charger.

Convenience
With the Ford Fusion you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Charger, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Ford Fusion. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Charger is much higher than that for the Ford Fusion.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Ford Fusion, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Charger, which is slightly longer than the Ford Fusion.

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 Ford Fusion.

Handling
The Dodge Charger has about the same turning radius as the Ford Fusion, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Ford Fusion. 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 Ford Fusion. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Dodge Charger as you will in the Ford Fusion.

Warranty
The Dodge Charger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Fusion.
