Music sensation Charlie Puth is one of the biggest names in America. He is not only a talented songwriter and singer, but also a car enthusiast with a strong passion for four-wheelers; a passion shared by many celebrities, who are proud owners of some of the most expensive cars in the world. Despite his busy schedule, Charlie loves to take some of his fancy cars every now and then and cruise.
Unlike most celebrities, the American music icon’s car collection does not contain ultra-expensive hypercars, but leans more towards muscle cars. He doesn’t drive a fancy, star-studded Rolls-Royce like DJ Khaled. Charlie likes to keep it simple and loves cool muscles from cleverness. Over the years, we’ve glimpsed some of the favorite cars in Charlie Puth’s collection. Among these cars are the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT, Dodge Challenger SRT and the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk.
Charlie Puth is a huge Dodge admirer
The Dodge Challenger 2022 SRT is one of the most fashionable cars. So it’s not surprising that one of the most fashionable celebs loves to ride it. The latest Dodge Challenger SRT has a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine, so it’s easy to see why many people choose it. The Dodge Challenger SRT has an 8-speed automatic transmission and can go a whopping 199 miles per hour. It can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds. It can cover a quarter of a mile in just 11.9 seconds.
The Dodge Challenger SRT comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen that can connect to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It had a large screen that responded quickly to whatever you did. While Uconnect’s user interface looks a bit old-fashioned at first glance, it’s still one of its user-friendly features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard features that can be used with smartphones and the Uconnect system.
Large music libraries and songs load quickly and several simple commands control the system. Charlie must be a big fan of this feature. Plus, the buttons and knobs made it easy to use. Want to listen to music while doing massive burnouts? Dodge has an 18-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system that really rocks. The Challenger’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and the easy-to-follow navigation directions from the Uconnect system are great features. The Challenger SRT has the most space for front and rear passengers in its class. The doors are a bit heavy and the handles are hard to grip (especially when it’s cold), but they open wide. It is easy to get in and out.
The power of the Dodge Charger SRT sits nicely in its garage
It’s no secret that Charlie has a thing for Dodge cars. The Dodge Charger SRT just happens to be one of the cars he likes to drive. This big, heavy car moves fast for a car known for being rugged. The car can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds. It has a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine, making it one of the most popular cars in its class. The 8-speed automatic transmission on the Dodge Charger allows a top speed of 203 miles per hour.
The interior of the 2022 Dodge Charger SRT is just as fantastic as the mechanical system, which causes quite a stir. Premium leather seats and an easy-to-use 8.4-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard equipment for the SRT.
The SRT has basic safety features, but we’re sure Puth must have upgraded its Charger SRT with best-in-class options. Among the many upgrades available on the inside are a panoramic sunroof and a more expensive sound system with Harman Kardon audio.
Charlie owns a powerhouse Jeep model
Although Puth is a Dodge fan, he also happens to be a proud owner of a Jeep Cherokee. The higher suspension, unique four-wheel drive system and all-terrain tires help on trails with ruts and bumps. This car has a 3.2-liter V6 engine with 271 hp and a 9-speed automatic transmission. This vehicle can go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds and has a maximum speed of 131 miles per hour.
The entry-level infotainment interface is decent, even if the icons are on the small side, and smartphone connectivity to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard. The touchscreen interface is easy to use and comes with instructions to help you navigate the various commands. You can use voice commands to make calls, change radio stations, and change the environment. Two USB ports are located on the front and two more charging points on the back. Inside and out, the Jeep Cherokee is packed with beautiful accessories.
If, like Charlie, you’re looking to buy a Jeep, you can’t go wrong with any of the Jeep models. All Cherokees provide a smooth ride with excellent visibility. Jeep has five model levels, so there is likely to be one to suit your budget or desired off-road capability. However, if you want to opt for the ultimate Jeep offroader, then you should go for the Trialhawk variant that Puth drives.
