The Dodge Charger was manufactured by Chrysler and since its launch, it has captured the hearts of many, especially young petrolheads. It featured 461 horsepower and had a V8 engine, which promised a top speed performance. Although a V6 engine was made for the Dodge Charger, it was never quite as popular as the more powerful engine..
The 1969 Dodge Charger is one of the most famous muscle cars of all time. It goes without saying that most people consider this vehicle to be a classic. Although the 1969 Charger was similar in many ways to those of the past, there were some changes that gave it a distinct look and feel.
The Charger was created to compete with other cars like the Pontiac GTO, Buick Gran Sport and the Oldsmobile 442. The vehicle would quickly gain popularity, and each subsequent year was made more powerful. The'69 Charger was just about entirely overhauled as the company wanted a new image for the car.
The line-up of the 1969 Dodge Charger introduced a wide variety of models including the more magnificent Special Edition 'SE', the base model, the 2 racing editions (the 500 and Daytona) and the R/T.
So, what made the 69 Charger so popular?
In 1969 the car was popularized by its performance in NASCAR racing.
When the car was featured in the popular television series, The Dukes of Hazzard, the Charger really took off.
If it were not for The Dukes of Hazzard it is safe to say that the 1969 Dodge Charger rt may have never gained so much popularity.
Many people do not know that just these cars set the base for the todays cars. Their engines, their designes were to that time something exceptional. They were and still they are cars which remain in hearts of those who pay honours and admire them. This article will be a nice revival and memory for them.

You don't have to be born in the 1960s or 1970s to be able to recognize the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard and the Pontiac Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit. These old school four-wheeled stars seem to transcend demographics thanks to the miles of film that show the orange 1969 Dodge Charger and the jet-black 1977 Pontiac Trans Am performing seemingly impossible stunts.
The folks at Hot Rod magazine are obviously hip to this fact, and they put together a fun video in tribute of the instantly recognizable duo. Hit play to watch on as Sam Young and James Smith replace Bo Duke and The Bandit for a bit of dirt-road shenanigans in a pair of otherwise well cared for classics. We're not so sure we'd call it the best chase scene ever, but it sure looks like a lot of fun.
