2007 Dodge Magnum Review

Made with attractive styling, reasonable performance, and versatile utility.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 2007 Dodge Magnum is an attractive yet practical wagon with excellent performance capabilities. The mid-size wagon boasts sturdy construction and sporty styling. The Magnum’s utility makes it very suitable for families looking for an alternative to the minivan or the SUV, while its on-road capabilities and muscle car-looks make it a reasonably good option for performance enthusiasts.

For 2007, Dodge made the Magnum available in four trim levels: SE, SXT, R/T, and STR8. The base model SE comes with features that include air-conditioning, cruise control, a telescoping steering wheel, power accessories, and a stereo equipped with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Stepping up to the SXT model sees the addition of 17-inch alloy wheels, a power driver seat, and a more powerful V-6 engine. Opting for the R/T gets you a V-8 engine, 18-inch alloys, a firmer suspension, an improved stereo system with satellite radio, and leather seating. Additional options available for these three trim levels include sunroofs, automatic climate control, navigation system, and rear-seat entertainment system. There is also an R/T Performance Group package available for the R/T model. Opting for that package sees the introduction of a sport-tuned suspension, quicker steering, and a performance exhaust and intake.

The performance-oriented STR8 model is very similar to the R/T but also features 20-inch alloys, improved brakes, an even firmer suspension, and unique trim details.

The base model SE comes with a 2.7-liter V-6 that’s rated at 190 horsepower and produces 190 lb-ft of torque. The midrange SXT is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 250 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. The R/T comes with a 5.7-liter V-8 rated at 340 horsepower and capable of producing 390 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the sporty STR8 model comes equipped with a formidable 6.1-liter V-8 rated at 425 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.

All-wheel drive is an option for SXT and R/T models, while all others are rear-wheel drive only. The SE comes equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission while a five-speed automatic is standard for all other models.

What's New

Dodge only implemented minor changes to the Magnum for 2007. These included the introduction of an available R/T Performance Group package, which includes a sport-tuned suspension, larger wheels, and an additional 10 horsepower added to the engine.


With its distinctive muscle car-influenced styling, the 2007 Dodge Magnum is certainly one of the most head-turning wagons drivers are likely to see on the road. This is especially true if you opt for the R/T Performance Group package, which includes 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels and all-season performance tires.


With its spacious cabin, the 2007 Dodge Magnum provides more than adequate room for both front and back seat occupants. With the vehicle’s 60/40-split rear seat folded, the Magnum is capable of accommodating up to 72 cubic feet of cargo. Additionally, there is an optional cargo organizer feature available.

Performance & Handling

When equipped with the base model V-6 engine, the 2007 Dodge Magnum delivers adequate power for everyday driving. However, acceleration off the line is somewhat sluggish unless drivers upgrade to the larger V-6 that comes with the SXT or the V-8 that comes with the R/T. The sporty STR8 model is an altogether different animal. It’s 6.1-liter V-8 delivers ample power while its sport-tuned suspension and large brakes make it capable to maneuver around turns and fun to drive.


All versions of the 2007 Dodge Magnum feature four-wheel disc brakes. However, other features such as anti-lock brakes, traction control, and stability control are optional on the base model SE and standard on the higher trim SXT and R/T models. Other available and standard safety features are dependent upon trim level and include full-length side curtain airbags, stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, self-sealing tires, and adjustable pedals.
