Stop What You're Doing

The Dodge Charger delivers an elite lineup of performance-inspired brakes for maximum stopping power.

  • Touring Brake System

    -

    Leave your worries behind when you hit the road ahead. The Dodge Charger SE and SXT (RWD) include an Antilock Brake System combined with All-Speed Traction Control for road-ready handling.

    These brakes are designed to handle any condition. Standard on the Dodge Charger SE AWD, SXT AWD and R/T, this four-wheel Antilock Brake System is tied together with All-Speed Traction Control, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution and Brake Assist.

  • SPORT BRAKE SYSTEM
    WITH PERFORMANCE BRAKE LININGS

    When performance beckons, you need brakes that are ready to answer.
