Dodge Charger Earns 2017 ALG Residual Value Award for a Third Year in a Row


For the third time in three years, the 2017 Dodge Charger has earned the Residual Value Award in the “Full-Size” category from ALG, the industry benchmark for residual values and depreciation data.

The Dodge Charger is the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world, delivering world-class 707 horsepower, up to 30 miles per gallon with its Pentastar V-6, high-tech Uconnect features and the segment’s most innovative all-wheel-drive system for those who need maximum all-weather traction and standout styling – all to make America’s only four-door muscle car one of the hottest and most desirable sedans available today. New for 2017, Dodge builds on its heritage, introducing Charger Daytona models designed to deliver more performance and heritage-inspired styling to the naturally aspirated Dodge 5.7-liter and 392 HEMI® lineup.

“Striking a delicate balance between traditional sedan and muscle car, the Dodge Charger represents the shifting trends in the full-size segment,” said Eric Lyman, vice president of industry insights for ALG. “A wide range of powertrain and comfort features ensure there is a perfect Charger for every personality. High performance teams up with high value as the Dodge Charger lands back-to-back Residual Value Awards in 2017.”

“ALG recognizes vehicles and brands that stand out from the rest of the market, and that is exactly what the Dodge Charger does,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “The only four-door muscle car in the market has now won this award from ALG three years in a row, and that is a testament to the fact that there is nothing else like Charger on the road today.”

ALG recognizes 26 vehicles with segment awards, along with two brands representing the mainstream and premium sectors of the industry. This year’s awards are based on 2017 model-year vehicles. Award winners are determined through careful study of the competition in each segment, historical vehicle performance and industry trends. Vehicle quality, production levels relative to demand and pricing and marketing strategies represent key factors that impact ALG’s residual value forecasts.
