Introduction

I purchased this car new in the summer of 2015, it was a leftover dealer stock unit. I was able to purchase it after securing permission from Chrysler Fleet.

The car is nothing short of amazing, in every way.

The biggest problems I've had were not with the car or the dealer, but with Dodge itself. What good is the warranty when the company won't honor it?

Come on, FCA . You can do MUCH better !!!

Why the 2013 Dodge Charger?

Exterior styling

Stylingbis great. It looks like all the great no-nonsense, no-compromise squads of the 70's and 80's.

Interior styling

Excellent interior. Very quiet, and plenty of room. Good visibility.

Color choices

The Pursuits actually have a far wider spectrum of colors than the retail cars, but the special order colors are only available in minimum numbers, usually 5.

Powertrain performance

There are two engines, the V6 and the 5.7 in the Pursuit. AWD is available with the Hemi now, and not the V6, which is the opposite of retail policy.

Fuel economy

I manage to do quite well with fuel economy, about 17 city and 26.5 highway.

Why Not the 2013 Dodge Charger?

Handling

This car will out-handle most vehicles out there, in realistic terms. As Car and Driver noted, a well-trained officer would be very tough to outrun in one of these beasts.

Safety & braking

The brakes require occasional burnishing, and then they're fine.

Materials & workmanship

Very well put together car.

Reliability & durability

These cars (Charger Pursuit) do require a bit more attention than most retail cars, but they're half stock car, half taxi.

Brand reputation & image

Dodge makes a great product, but when something goes wrong, they need to remember that customer satisfaction is what leads to repeat business.

Conclusion

Chrysler does not market the Charger Pursuit to the general public. It is designed and manufactured to order for a specific group of customers.

Although a Pursuit can be purchased as a Demo, you will not be able to purchase one brand new off the lot or ordered through Fleet without proper authorization.
