A carry-over from 2006, the Magnum is a four-door five-passenger family sport wagon offered in four trim levels. The SE features a 2.7-liter V6 that produces 190 horsepower, the SXT with a 3.5-liter V6 that outputs 250 horsepower, the RT with a 5.7-liter V8 rated at 340 horsepower, or the SRT8 that has a powerful 6.1-liter V8 with 425 horsepower and a five-speed automatic transmission. All other models come standard with a four-speed automatic. In addition the SXT and RT can be ordered with all-wheel-drive configuration.Read more Read less
The three-year-old Dodge Magnum remains largely unchanged from the 2006 model year. New options on the rear wheel drive Magnum include 17-inch aluminum machined wheels, 18-inch aluminum chrome clad wheels (also available on the rear-wheel-drive RT), body color molding, front and rear floor mats, and an enhanced convenience group with dual zone automatic temperature control. The same convenience group is now offered on the all-wheel-drive SXT as well, and the Road/Track Performance Group is available on the rear-wheel-drive RT. It adds showy 20-inch chrome clad aluminum wheels, heavy duty brakes, modified suspension and steering, dual zone auto temperature control, among other equipment, for slightly less than $3,000.
Smooth ride; high performance handling; diverse engine choices; versatility
Thanks to a dizzying list of optional equipment, the 2007 Dodge Magnum's appeal spans demographics. From ground-pounding Hemi engines and high performance handling, to rear child seats, the Magnum can be tailored to suit most buyers' who are searching for the versatility of a station wagon without the staid reputation of one. And with base prices ranging from $23,000 to $37,000, the Magnum serves as a viable competitor to both entry-level family cars and performance-oriented four-doors.
