The 2022 Dodge Charger will soon begin reaching dealerships around the country and when those new model year sedans arrive, there won’t be any big changes to the lineup. There will be a significantly improved security system, but right now, that is the only big change for the 2022 Charger. However, since there have been a great many nonsensical rumors about the new model year, we wanted to share all of the official details for the 2022 Dodge Charger.
Keep in mind, this applies to the 2022 Charger lineup based on the information that is currently available. With the news of the “Never Lift” program, which will lay out the next two years of plans for the Charger and Challenger, we are all-but-guaranteed to see some changes during the 2022 calendar year, but for now, this is the official information.
New for 2022
Right now, there is only one official change for the 2022 Dodge Charger. There is a new deluxe security system that includes a glass break sensor, a vehicle inclination sensor and an interior motion sensor. This system is standard on R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye models while SXT, SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD and R/T models can add this beefed-up security system by adding the Driver Convenience Group.
