Dodge Charger was a hit in the mid 1960s when it charged into the automotive industry spotlight. The introduction of the 1966 model Charger in the fall of 1965 was in response to America's demand for an average car that could offer better than average performance. The Charger was first designed as a fastback version of their mid-size Coronet. The second generation Charger drew added attention due to the popularity of the orange model featured on the television series, The Dukes of Hazzard. Three more generations of Chargers were sold before there was a hiatus in production. In 2006, Dodge reintroduced the Charger as a family car with performance that could move from zero to 60 in just 6.2 seconds.
