What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Dodge Charger MPG

Dodge Charger Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2012 4dr Sedan 292-hp 3.6L V6 8-sp automatic RWD I recently drove from Dublin, Georgia to Port Huron, Michigan. I reset the fuel economy gauge and was VERY HAPPY to find I got 37.0 miles per gallon for the 950 mile trip! Full-size, rear-wheel drive, loaded with a lot of stuff...well, it doesn't get much better than that!
2006 4dr Sedan 292-hp 3.6L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic RWD It weights 3800 lb, and returns 28 mpg on the highway, if you use mid-grade or premium fuel. Consumption goes up in winter (24 mpg). There is nothing wrong with these numbers, and in return you get a big, safe car that gives you decent chance in a crash.
Dodge Charger Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2009 4dr Sedan 250-hp 3.5L V6 4-sp automatic RWD The chager did not have appealing fuel economy.
2008 4dr Sedan 250-hp 3.5L V6 4-sp automatic RWD City mileage is not that great. highway mileage is good.
2007 4dr Sedan 292-hp 3.6L V6 8-sp shiftable automatic RWD Well it is better than my Jeep Grand Cherokee was, but an additional mile or two a gallon would be nice. With all the pluses though a 24 - 25 highway MPG is tolerable.
2006 4dr Sedan 292-hp 3.6L V6 8-sp shiftable automatic RWD very low if I drive with a heavy foot
2006 4dr Sedan 292-hp 3.6L V6 8-sp shiftable automatic RWD 12mpg in urban environment with v8.
