Dodge Charger might be launched in Australia next year image

The North American based automaker Dodge is currently considering a possible launch of the Charger in Australia in early 2014.

According to the guys at Car Advice, the announcement has been made by the Chrysler Group senior VP of design, Ralph Gilles, during the 2013 New York Auto Show.

“Apparently the Australians favour the Charger more than the 300, so we’re looking at a conversion package where we could do something. The market wants it, so that’s something I’m very interested in”, as Ralph Gilles said.

If it will make its way to the Australian market, than the Dodge Charger will become available in right-hand drive. A decision is yet to be made but, according to the source mentioned above, chances are that the model will hit the market in early 2014. As a quick reminder, the Dodge Charger is 5,077 mm long, 1,905 mm wide and 1,482 mm tall, with a 3,052 mm wheelbase. In the United States, the model is powered by a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine, with 218 kW and 353 Nm of torque, by a 5.7 liter HEMI V8, with 276 kW and 536 Nm of torque and by a 6.4 liter HEMI V8 in the SRT version, with 351 kW and 637 Nm of torque.
