2021 Dodge Charger Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

We’re not confident how the Dodge Charger will get more powerful as it will get older. Perhaps request The Rock?

For 2021, the Charger will get an asphalt melting 797-horsepower variant that’s as irresponsible as it is potent. Which is not a judgement on our portion, just unbridled peak-electrical power on Dodge’s.

The Charger will get a six.two TCC Ranking thanks to that effectiveness and design and style. Fuel mileage is not good, and so what. (Read much more about how we fee vehicles.)

Evaluation continues under

Like very last 12 months, the Charger is out there in SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat trim degrees. A SRT Hellcat Redeye is new this 12 months and vastly potent, all-wheel travel is out there on SXT and GT vehicles with a V-six. All the things else will get rear-travel, a V-eight, and a prolific thirst.

The Charger is mechanically relevant to the Challenger coupe but provides two much more doors and a bucketful of practicality above that car or truck. The Challenger seems superior, but the Charger still seems good.

Both share a lineup of engines that would tax any spreadsheet. The base V-six will make 292 hp, even though a 5.7-liter V-eight will make 370 hp. A six.four-liter V-eight will make 485 hp, and the Hellcats take above with 717 hp or 797 hp dependent on how deep your pockets are.

All are paired to an eight-velocity automated and rear-wheel travel much more typically, all-wheel travel is on the menu but misses the point.

The Charger comfortably seats four—something the Challenger just can’t say—although the again seats absence for extended-haul comfort and ease. The trunk is large: 16.5 cubic toes.

So is its thirst. The Charger charges any place from the mid-20s to the low-teens for gasoline economy—worse if you have a weighty proper foot. On the lookout for good gas mileage? Maintain looking.

The Charger is geared up with a 7.-inch touchscreen with smartphone software package, 17-inch wheels, and fabric upholstery. Its very best lifetime is with an eight.four-inch touchscreen, twenty-inch wheels, effectiveness goodies, and a sonorous V-eight less than the hood.

We’d pick a Scat Pack for its mighty six.four-liter V-eight, out there choices, and out there active basic safety features that aren’t standard on any trim (regrettably) but also not out there on Hellcats. Shucks.
