1985 Dodge Charger Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 8 reviews
This 3-door hatchback got a little sportier this year in its Shelby model. Along with a retuning that improved the already performance-oriented suspension and brakes, the 1985 Shelby Charger received a new turbocharged, fuel-injection 2.2-liter engine, that hit 146-hp, a 36-hp upgrade from 1984. The result was a Charger that could kick up some dust, reminiscent of its ancestry, and had the power to go along with its racer looks.
The 1985 Charger base and 2.2 hatchback remained the same, powered by the 1.6-liter, 62-hp engine or the 2.2-liter, 85-hp engine respectively. A new engine option for these models in 1985 was the old Shelby 2.2-liter, 107-hp performance engine.
The 1985 Charger was a decent subcompact hatchback, with fold-down seats to increase cargo capacity. Its size, handling, and good gas mileage (19/29) made it a practical city car. The Shelby Charger was popular for its steering and cornering action and its increased speed. Owners also loved the supportive front seats, although admitted that passengers had no room in the backseat.
