The 500 returned as an intermediate between the base model and the R/T.

A new 440ci V8, the “Six-Pack,” was offered as an option and produced 390 hp.

The Special Edition (SE) package was available to Charger 500s and Charger R/Ts. Besides a new variety of colors including Top Banana, Panther Pink, Go Mango, and Plum Crazy, a new HEMI hood cutout was an option for the ’70 Charger in which 440 or HEMI lettering was spelled out in block letter with silver reflective tape on either side and hood scallop inserts were painted black.

The R/T added the Magnum engine but also the special handling package, auto trans (although manual could be had at now additional cost), and the Dodge “Bumble Bee” racing stipe.
