What is a Dodge Charger?
Although Americans didn’t create the car, they are definitely one of the country’s that have helped build cars to the point where they are the most dominating form of transportation today. We’ve come a long way since a young Detroit entrepreneur applied the concept of assembly line to car production, but Henry Ford would’ve smiled if he could see how beautiful and efficient cars are today.
While there are now more choices than ever for car owners to buy the car that best suits their personality and need, there have been a few cars that have cemented its place as classic vehicles. One such vehicle is the apple of Dodge’s eye, the Dodge Charger. The Dodge Charger has been around since 1964 where it made its brash entrance as a roadster style car. Since its initial introduction, the Dodge Chrysler has undergone a number of stylistic renovations that suited its time. As one of the premier vehicles in Dodge’s stable, the Dodge Charger has become an enduring symbol of the toughness of American vehicles.

When many people look at cars they find that they have to go to somewhere else for an objective point of view. After all, if you ask any car owner about their car, they are going to beam with pride and exaggerate all of the great details about the car. If you ask a salesperson, they are going to gloss over the minor tweaks of the car and accentuate the positive to assist their goal of getting you to buy a car. If you ask a company spokesman about their car, get ready for a speech filled with hyperbole and statements about how this car is the greatest car ever produced. Of course, if you ask a rival company, they are going to exaggerate the negatives of the particular car in order to convince you that actually their company produces the most superior car on the marketplace right now.
