Both have base V6 engines, but only one offers enhanced powertrain options. Here is a closer look under the hoods of these two four-door vehicles. 

Dodge Charger

Base Engine
: 3.6L V6
Base HP: 300
Transmission: 8-speed auto
Upgrade: 5.7L V8
Performance Options: 6.2L Supercharged SRT Hellcat
Max Horsepower: 797 

Nissan Maxima

Base Engine
: 3.5L V6
Base HP: 300
Transmission: CVT
Upgrade: None
Performance Options: None

Both base trims, the Maxima S and Charger SXT, have V6 engines that provide 300 hp. However, the Dodge offers several more powerful options, including a 5.7L V8 HEMI and 6.2L supercharged, high-output SRT Hellcat, which brings a race-track-worthy 797 hp. 

The Dodge Charger also features an 8-speed automatic transmission and available AWD. Both of these are missing from the Maxima’s list of options. 

But no matter which engine you choose, the Charger will keep every ride sure-footed using its stability control with anti-roll system. Likewise, the traction management feature allows the wheels to stay firmly tied to the ground while ABS brakes provide ample stopping power.
