Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fusion Energi 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 Energi 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fusion Energi will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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 Energi carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Charger.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion Energi is about the same width as the Dodge Charger. The Ford Fusion Energi is slightly shorter than the Dodge Charger, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Ford Fusion Energi 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 Energi 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 Energi and the Dodge Charger. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Dodge Charger, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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