The grille was slightly revised and new taillights that featured 22 individual lenses were the new visual revisions for the 1973 Charger. Most noticeable, however, was the new roofline around the quarter windows.
The grille was slightly revised and new taillights that featured 22 individual lenses were the new visual revisions for the 1973 Charger. Most noticeable, however, was the new roofline around the quarter windows. The Rallye option was still available and came with a 318 standard, but you could still get the 440ci 4bbl engine.
The SE acted more as a luxury model, though any of the optional V8s could be had for additional performance. It included pleated vinyl seats, a vinyl roof, and came standard with the Rallye instrument cluster.
While styling and powertrain changes were evolutionary, the chassis was radically re-engineered. New rubber-isolated suspension systems (front and rear) reduced noise and vibration, but significantly added to the vehicle’s mass, especially at the front, and reduced torsional rigidity. Gone was the taut handling of the ’62-’72 B-body Mopars. Front disc brakes were now standard, no doubt at least partially to cope with the added weight.
