2011 Dodge Charger: First Photos

We were first to show you the 2011 Dodge Charger in Pursuit trim, but now take a gander at our first look at the civilian version and its large body-side scallops and 164-LED racetrack taillights.

Dodge continues to go backwards with its design, this time reaching all the way to '60s with the full-width rear light display rimmed by LEDs. The elevated rear and hunched shoulders meld with the more detailed and aggressive front fascia. The whole look encourages the viewer to suddenly remember the Coke-bottle shapes of the era. Is Lyndon Johnson still in the Oval Office?

The new Dodge Charger's coming in two flavors for 2011. The Diet Coke option is the Charger SE with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. For those wanting more of a Jolt, Chrysler's still offering the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 in either R/T or R/T AWD trim.
