Comparison Review

Convenience
The Lexus ES 350 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Dodge Charger, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Charger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus ES 350. 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 Lexus ES 350.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 350. 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 Lexus ES 350.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus ES 350.
