Reviews Summary

Like the original, the modern 2006 Pontiac GTO puts a big engine in a midsize coupe. This time around, the GTO is based on the Holden Monaro, the only suitable rear-drive model in the global General Motors product arsenal. It’s built in Australia and shipped to eager Pontiac performance aficionados in America.

Reviews Summary

Hooligans and cops everywhere are saying their final goodbyes to the Dodge Charger, a full-size sedan both sides of the law have exonerated for intimidation and respect. The Charger, along with the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Challenger coupe that share its 1990s-era Mercedes platform, will be discontinued after the 2023 model year. At one time the most powerful production sedan in the world—and still the most powerful running on gas—the Charger's replacement will be a trendy EV that Dodge doesn't really want to build. That's the law, though, so the Charger departs in full smoke and fury with three special edition Last Call models built in limited numbers for its final year. We drove one, a 2023 Charger Swinger, for a proper send-off.
