2021 Dodge Challenger
The 2021 Dodge Challenger continues to hone its heritage style and harness its power from hefty V8s. Its mightiest trim — the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock — is better suited for a race track given its 807 horsepower, the highest of any production car. Segment-exclusive all-wheel-drive, large interior, spacious trunk, and an impressive Uconnect infotainment system round out the 2021 Challenger features.
Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI
Avail. Engine Type
The 2021 Dodge Challenger is offered in 10 trims — SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, R/T Scat Pack Widebody, SRT Hellcat, SRT Hellcat Widebody, SRT Hellcat Redeye, SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, and the top-tier SRT Super Stock. A 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine is standard under the hood of the SXT and GT trims, generating 305 horsepower. Every trim after the GT trim is powered by a HEMI V8 variant, starting with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine under the hood of the R/T trim that makes 375 horsepower, followed by the R/T Scat Pack and R/T Scat Pack Widebody that’s powered by a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 capable of topping out at 485 horsepower, and the SRT Redeye and SRT Redeye Widebody that are powered by a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 generating a whopping 717 horsepower.
2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock
The gem of the 2021 Dodge Challenger lineup is the Challenger SRT Super Stock. It isn’t considered light by any means, but this muscle car moves. It can run the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at a whopping 131 mph, hit a top speed of 168 mph (depending on the tires), and can take off from 0-60 mph in only 3.25 seconds. Just like under the hood of the Challenger SRT Hellcat, the Super Stock is not only powered by the same 6.2-liter supercharged HEMi V8, it also borrows the 2.7-liter supercharger as well from other Hellcat trims. Unlike the Challenger Redeye Demon, the Super Stock makes an extra 10 horses, topping out at 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. To get that 10 extra horsepower, Dodge recalibrated the engine and managed to increase the redline 100 revolutions to 6,400 rpm.
Its heritage-inspired and aggressive stance remains unchanged for the 2021 model year. The 2021 Dodge Challenger features badges in accordance with the trim, like HEMI fender badges, Hellcat badges, Hellcat Redeye badges, and even a 392 Bee badge on the R/T Scat Pack trim. Both the Redeye and Super Stock trims feature a Hellcat badge with red eyes in a black chrome finish. As for the Widebody designation, the trim improves overall performance while modernizing the vehicle without wavering from its heritage design. Additional exterior features available on the 2021 Dodge Challenger include racing stripes packages, hood scoops, shaker hoods, snorkel hoods, air-catcher headlamps that improve airflow and performance, low gloss Granite wheels, and even drag-radial tires.
Unlike other vehicles that compete in this segment, the Dodge Challenger is known for its spacious interior, more passenger space than rivals, and comfortable seats. Additionally, the 2021 Dodge Challenger features a capacious trunk and segment-exclusive all-wheel drive (available on the V6 only). Dodge offers buyers a colorful roster of exterior paint options to choose from, as well as numerous retro-themed appearance packages. Carbon fiber accents, a suede headliner, and red seat belts are all standard on SRT trims. Other available features include heated/ventilated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, steering wheel paddle shifters, premium cloth and leather upholstery with accent stitching, and multiple interior color combinations no matter the trim.
A 7-inch infotainment touchscreen display is standard on the entry-level trims, while a larger 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen display comes standard on the R/T trim onward. Apple CarPlay, Google Android Auto, and hands-free Bluetooth capabilities are all standard. A six-speaker Alpine Audio System comes standard, but there’s an available 19-speaker Harman/Kardon Premium Audio System that’s sure to satisfy any audiophile. Performance Pages come standard with a performance indicator display, real-time vehicle capability stats — ranging from engine metrics to suspension information and beyond. SiriusXM Satellite Radio is also available and includes Travel Link, Roadside Assistance, and more.
