2022 Dodge Charger vs. 2022 Nissan Maxima

If you are looking for a ride that offers more than enough engine power, and has plenty of cargo room and passenger space inside, you will definitely love the 2022 Dodge Charger. This one also has straightforward infotainment features to boast of.

In the case of the 2022 Nissan Maxima, expect a potent V6 engine version, and an assortment of standard safety features to delight you further. Heated rear seats are now available in the Platinum trim for the ride.

Design & Style

The 2022 Dodge Charger remains impressive when it comes to overall designing. It has that lovely, sturdy body, and with a few upgrades to include suede accents and Nappa leather upholstery for the cabin, it is definitely a good buy. The ride also comes configured with a 16.5 cubic feet of trunk space, just enough to carry several suitcases and shopping bags. Sitting five people, there is plenty of legroom and headroom, even in the second row.

That of the Nissan Maxima comes fitted with soft-touch and top-notch materials inside. When compared to that of the Charger, it only has 14.3 cubic feet of trunk space, something that is a bit underwhelming even when placed side by side other large cars out there. Sitting five people, the rear seats are best left to two adults or three kids, for them to enjoy the space.

Technology & Safety

The Uconnect infotainment system in the 2022 Dodge Charge is one of the easiest to use interfaces in its class. This one is fitted with a seven-inch touch screen, able to display crisp graphics and take snappy responses to user commands. It has also been configured to integrate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and to carry four USB ports, six speakers, Bluetooth, and voice recognition functions. When it comes to safety, it is gifted with a rearview camera, and rear parking sensors, as well as the option to avail forward automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and a long list of other driver aids.

Carrying the NissanConnect infotainment system, the Maxima uses an eight-inch touch screen display. It also integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and is equipped with eight speakers, satellite radio, two USB ports, and a Bluetooth interface. Safety wise, it has a long list to offer, including lane departure warning, driver attention monitoring, adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, and traffic sign recognition.


Under the hood of the 2022 Charger is a base V6 3.6-liter engine that can spruce up to 292 horsepower.  There is an available configuration that reaches up to 300 horsepower as well. Its V8 engines can produce anywhere in between 370 and 485 horsepower, while supercharged V8s generate between 650 to 707 horsepower.

In the case of the 2022 Nissan Maxima, its sole engine only carries results of up to 300 horsepower. This one is a V6, 3.5-liter set-up.

A complete package with all the amenities that you are looking for, you will never go wrong choosing the 2022 Dodge Charger. This one is far better considering all aspects above, when compared to that of the 2022 Nissan Maxima.
