You should look at the Dodge Charger 2014. You need four doors and interior room. You want some get-with-it performance. You have a modest budget. A new Redline Package includes 20-inch Black Chrome aluminum wheels and a 3.6-liter V6 with cold-air induction and 300 horsepower. The AWD Sport includes the 300-horsepower V6 or 370-horsepower V8. There’s also a Wheel Sport Appearance Group, and new paint choices include Header Orange, TorRed and Plum Crazy historic colors. The Dodge Charger 2014 receives no significant changes.

The Dodge Charger 2014 is a full-size sedan offered in SE, SXT, R/T, SRT8 and SRT8 Super Bee trims. The 2014 Dodge Charger SE and SXT come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Add the Rallye Appearance Group, Blacktop package, Redline package or AWD Sport package, and engine and exhaust tweaks lift output to 300 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed automatic is standard on the SE, while an eight-speed automatic is optional for the SE and standard for all SXTs. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but the SXT can be equipped with all-wheel drive. The SE returns an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined. With the eight-speed automatic, fuel economy jumps to a laudable 19/31/23 mpg.
