The Dodge Charger is the winner of Edmunds.com’s 2012 Breakthrough Technology Award. The award is presented each year to a vehicle that sets the standard for intuitive, practical and affordable automotive technology that enhances safety and convenience for both drivers and passengers. All new cars and trucks available for sale in the U.S. within the last 12 months are eligible.
The 2011 Dodge Charger won for its cutting-edge — but intuitive — UConnect Touch infotainment user interface, its reliable Bluetooth hands-free and voice-recognition features and its innovative active safety technology. Edmunds.com’s editors chose the Dodge Charger because it embodies some of the most modern technology available in a car today — and it’s available in a vehicle that’s within the budget of average consumers.
And since the Charger is a sensible sedan that masquerades as a modern day muscle car, the total package is that much more attractive to consumers and enthusiasts.
