2015 Ford Fusion vs. 2014 Dodge Charger Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fusion offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Dodge Charger 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.

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). Based on MSRP, the Ford Fusion is clearly a better financial choice over the Dodge Charger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fusion carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Charger.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much slimmer than the Dodge Charger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Ford Fusion is slightly shorter than the Dodge Charger, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Ford Fusion has much less torque than the Dodge Charger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Charger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

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