The Charger isn’t exactly as outdated as the senior-citizen Challenger (now 10 years old) but it’s been available since 2011, making it due for a generational shift. We are going to have to wait a bit longer for that, but to keep the mob at bay, Dodge is ushering in a much-needed facelift for 2019. Little is known at this stage but as you can see from the teaser image, it’s slated to get a new face. High performance models like the SRT Hellcat, as an example, will get an all-new grille and may even get that incorporated intake. The grille is slimmed down considerably compared to the 2018 version and it seems like the front fascia may really be a little sportier.
Outside of what we could see in this picture, however, there is little more to be said without going into excessive speculation. We don’t even know whether the Charger will find the exact same aggressive hood scoop in the Challenger upgrade. We do understand that a full layout is underway for both the Challenger and Charger, nevertheless. And, to make things even better, the wait is due to a significant platform shift which will have the Challenger and Charger brothers riding on the same platform as the Maserati Ghibli.
That may be huge news for these two reborn but aging muscle cars. Stick around for updates about the 2019 facelift and make sure you check out our full review of each version in the links below!
