Compare Dodge Charger vs Chevrolet Camaro

What happens when an icon goes head to head with a sedan? If those two vehicles are the Chevy Camaro and the Dodge Charger, you may have yourself a race. That's because the Charger is the most performance-oriented sedan in its affordable class. It offers all of the same high-powered engines as its brother, the Challenger. So it is poised to compete with the Camaro.

With these two, it's a matter of suiting the shopper's style and personality. You can either drive the smaller, sleeker Camaro with its more limited backseat or driving the more muscled Charger with its more generous second row. If you check, you'll discover that both have good safety ratings. Your lifestyle will definitely have a say in which one of these rides is better for you. Shopping used is especially fun because Camaro and Charger engines from several years ago may be more powerful than some of today's sports cars.

 History

First introduced in 1967, the 2016 Camaro marks its sixth generation. Many used Camaros today come from the exciting fifth generation which saw the revival of this racy favorite after a six-year lapse. This may have been a good thing because recent Camaros are quite modern despite their iconic good looks. Frequent special editions and different performance levels have led to Camaro collectors who want exclusive models. It also helps maintain Camaro resale values as shoppers look for the best-reviewed or least known editions.

Manufactured from 1966 to 1987, the Charger nameplate lapsed. It returned in 2006 for a sixth generation. Since its revival, the Charger name has come to stand for customized, racy good looks and top performance. Yes, it's a sedan, but it has a personality that won't quit.

 Awards and Public Perception

In 2010, the fifth-generation Camaro earned World Car of the Year. In 2016, the sixth-generation Camaro took home a spot on the 10Best List from Car and Driver.
