In a world dominated by SUVs and work trucks, the 2021 Dodge Charger stands out for plenty of reasons. Many things have changed since the first generation Charger hit the streets in 1966, but there’s still a glimmer of that old-school styling and sheer muscle power in the newest version of this classic.
With the 2021 model year, the Dodge Charger has made some bold moves. Not only is it sleek, stocky, and aggressive, but it is mighty powerful. Dodge has chosen to offer a satisfying array of engines across the various trim levels. This is not a new concept at all, but when you consider that the base engine comes out of the garage snarling with 292 horsepower, it’s easy to see that this is a different kind of vehicle.
If you’re in the mood for pure, unadulterated power, from the press of the throttle to the tap of the brake, the 2021 Dodge Charger is waiting to share the journey with you. Not only are the engine options nearly mind-blowing, but Dodge has intelligently chosen to design every feature of the Charger around performance and power, inside and out. Explore the 2021 Dodge Charger, and let the stats take your breath away. Then get ready to drive like you’ve never driven before.
The 2021 Dodge Charger is offered in six basic trims, and there is a distinct engine for each trim. The speed and acceleration provided by these engines range from “wow” to “defying physics.” Whichever engine you choose, we are sure that you will be impressed by the performance that it offers.
The lineup starts with the SXT. This trim includes the most modest of the engines, a 3.6L V6 that provides 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This is also the most economical of the engines, with an estimated 19 miles per gallon city and 30 miles per gallon highway. This engine has the added advantage of being available in all-wheel drive on top of the standard rear-wheel drive. The GT trim also comes with a 3.6L V6, but it has been modified for a bit more performance and produces a cool 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque.
The R/T trim gets a 5.7L V8 engine with 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque, the first of four V8s available on the Charger. This may make you feel a bit giddy, especially if you’re used to typical sedan or SUV speeds, but this is just the beginning. The Scat Pack trims include a larger 6.4L V8 engine that scoffs at those specs, providing 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque.
At this stage in the power and performance game, you’re probably not paying too much attention to the fuel economy, but these two V8s aren’t too shocking. The 5.7L makes about 16 miles per gallon city and 25 miles per gallon highway, while the 6.4L version drops slightly to 15 miles per gallon city and 24 miles per gallon highway.
Then there are the Hellcat engines. These particular Charger engines have inspired some pretty big things in Mopar’s crate engine development. The SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye are both equipped with a 6.2L supercharged V8. In the “basic” Hellcat, this engine provides a mind-blowing 717 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. In the Redeye version, those numbers leap to 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful production sedan in the world… as of 2021. Only time will tell what type of possibilities these figures unlock.
You can’t make a vehicle that can cheerfully travel over 200 miles per hour without providing it with a lot of supporting equipment. Dodge has taken the opportunity to outfit the 2021 Charger with a wide variety of performance-oriented features that make it less intimidating to zip from 0-60 miles per hour in as little as 3.5 seconds.
When it comes to stopping power, two different Brembo brake options are available. The four-piston brakes are tuned to handle extreme braking conditions, as well as a variety of weather conditions, ensuring that your Charger can be driven to the limits without danger. Six-piston Brembo brakes are also available, with racecar-like stopping power that can tame the many horses that exist under the hood. Both options can be optioned in a variety of colors, as well, for that personal touch.
If you love your engine, you want to keep it as healthy as possible, and that means not letting it overheat. The 2021 Dodge Charger offers two options to help you stay at top speeds without blowing your engine. The SRT Power Chiller system has the ability to use the cabin air conditioning to cool the engine and keep it in a safe temperature range. The Race Cooldown feature is perfect for the track, keeping the radiator fan and intercooler pump running after the engine has been shut down.
Of course, if the track or drag strip is your ultimate destination, you’ll want to take advantage of features like launch control with launch assist, which even lets you set your preferred RPM range for a perfect launch every time the light turns green. Line lock is another fun feature that helps you get those pre-race burnouts started, locking the front brakes so you can warm up those rear tires with a few early spins.
When it comes to non-performance-related features, the 2021 Dodge Charger provides an impressive level of comfort and convenience across the trim levels. While this car may be built to go fast, it is not a stripped-down racer and will let you relax on your daily commute or a weekend road trip.
The base SXT is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, complete with two USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, and compatibility with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The digital gauge cluster can be configured to the driver’s specifications, and features like keyless entry and ignition with remote start and rear parking sensors make life easier for every driver.
Moving up the trim levels unlocks additional comfort features, such as an Alpine audio system and heated side mirrors on the GT, sporty track-inspired seats and a rear spoiler on the R/T, and heated, ventilated leather front seats on the SRT Hellcat trim. You can also upgrade to a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen with available built-in navigation for a more premium infotainment experience.
The 2021 Dodge Charger’s true draw is in the optional packages. After all, if you’re going to draw attention to yourself, you might as well have an appearance to match. Plus, there are some special performance features that can only be unlocked by the available packages.
The Scat Pack Widebody package, for example, adds a wider track and 20x11 inch Devil’s Rim aluminum wheels with a corresponding widebody tuned adaptive damping suspension. The fender flares match the body color for extra sleekness, and the leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel is pretty cool, too. But the six-piston brakes and all-speed traction control really add to the package, especially if you plan to take on the quarter-mile in your Charger.
Then there’s the Daytona Edition package, available on the R/T and Scat Pack trims. While the package differs depending on trim, it contains everything from rear seat cupholders to Daytona decals and badging. The added heated power-adjustable seats with lumbar support for the driver and front passenger make the Charger even more comfortable.
Whatever you need your Dodge Charger to be, there’s an option or a package for that. But if all you need is “really, really fast,” then look no further than this impressive four-door muscle car.
