2018 Dodge Charger and 2018 Kia Stinger in a comparison image

When it comes to a unique blend of practicality and performance, the Dodge Charger has been on its own for a long time. This unique, four-door American muscle car offers up to 16.1 cubic feet for cargo in the trunk (which is competitive or dominant when compared to other midsize and large sedans) and can also offer enough engine power to burn up the pavement. However, there is a new four-door performance option that has arrived on the scene: the 2018 Kia Stinger. Figuring out how these models stack up is the purpose of this 2018 Dodge Charger vs 2018 Kia Stinger comparison.

Starting at the base models, the 2018 Dodge Charger offers more horsepower even for a lower starting price. Its 3.6-liter V-6 offers 292 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that comes standard on the 2018 Kia Stinger offers just 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
