2019 Dodge Charger Vs. 2019 Chevrolet Impala
There’s a lot of competition in the four-door sedan market, especially when it comes to performance and design features; despite their similarities, only one sedan between the Dodge Charger and the Chevrolet Impala can rise above. It doesn’t take much for the Dodge Charger to show off the Dodge advantage, featuring far more pros than cons. Explore how these sedans compare with your top Dodge Edmonton dealer, Great West Chrysler!

The Dodge Charger’s design specifications spell out a slightly wider vehicle than the Chevrolet Impala, allowing it to maintain its traditional, old school styling. The Impala is designed with a modern look in mind, one closer to the mainstream styling of typical sedans you see out on the road. The Dodge Charger, on the other hand, supports the classic muscle car style it’s always been known for with a few modern twists; everything from a sculpted hood to a decklid spoiler, dual air inlets, and a performance grille, the Charger’s muscular appearance is even more defined on higher trim levels. Want a bold style that presents a new-age aesthetic while still holding close to the traditional design tenets that made it what it is? The Charger is the clear choice over the Impala, which disappears into the modern sedan market, incapable of standing out.

While it may seem like the Charger and Impala are neck-and-neck when it comes to performance capabilities, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The above chart is comparing the Impala’s top level trim with only the second level Charger trim. Above the 3.6L Pentastar™ VVT V6 engine are a 5.7L HEMI VVT V8, 6.4L SRT HEMI V8, and a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 option. They offer 370, 485 and 707 horsepower, respectively, while the torque improves to 395, 475, and 650. For unbridled power, the Charger is the clear-winner. And, even on the comparison above, the Charger maintains better fuel economy, even with the similar power specifications.

Which One Is for You, the Dodge Charger or Chevrolet Impala?
Classic design elements mix with modern features and styling, alongside top-tier performance potential, which has the Dodge Charger emerge as the optimal choice between these two sedans. Not only does the Charger offer interior space similar to the Impala, but it has a more defined and bold look at the same time—not to mention all that added power. While the Impala may come in at a lower MSRP, the wide list of categories the Charger excels in paints a clear case as to why it’s worth that little extra.
