Born, bred, and resurrected as an icon of American muscle, the 2021 Dodge Challenger is here to chew bubble gum and smoke tires - and it’s all out of gum.
The 2021 Challenger runs head to head with the two competing power coupes - the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro. Where the Challenger soars above the rest is engine output, and practicality as a daily driver. It doesn’t offer a convertible but makes up for the lack of open air driving with a more spacious and comfortable interior and a substantially larger trunk.
The 2021 Challenger power range runs from a 303-horsepower SXT to an 807-horsepower muscle missile in the new Challenger SRT Super Stock. You read that right - 807 horses.
All-wheel-drive is only available in the SXT and GT trims with the 303-horsepower 3.6-liter V6. While it lacks the traditional V8 of a muscle car, the all-wheel-drive system is top notch and helps take the edge off when driving in poor weather conditions.
The V8’s kick in for all the rest which include: R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and R/T Scat Pack Widebody. The R/T has the legendary 5.7-liter V8 Hemi engine with 375 horsepower, while the R/T Scat Pack’s 6.4L V8 pumps out an impressive 486 horsepower.
Dodge’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team takes the 2021 Challenger to the next level with truly massive V8 power that dominates the segment. SRT models feature a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 producing 717 horsepower in the Hellcat, an astounding 797 horsepower in the Hellcat Redeye, and a mind-blowing 807 horsepower monster only available in the brand new 2021 Super Stock version.
Crafted for the drag strip, the 2021 Challenger SRT Super Stock comes with a set of sticky Nitto NT05R drag radials, a shorter final drive ratio of 3.09 and enhanced load transfer from drag-optimized suspension tuning for the Bilstein adaptive dampers in Track mode. Speaking of suspension; in Track mode, the front suspension is set for firm compression and soft rebound, while the rear will remain firm for both compression and rebound, allowing the Challenger to transfer as much load as possible to the rear. As long as the throttle is wide-open this effect will remain, but once you ease up on the gas it will revert to normal settings in order to prioritize handling.
The 2021 Dodge Challenger is prepared for the unexpected, giving you extra peace of mind. The 2021 Challenger was designed with safety in mind, too. The Challenger is equipped with many standard and optional safety features that help keep you and your passengers safe in any situation.
It starts with strong bones - literally. The body's foundation is built with high-strength steel, which helps protect the cabin. Front and rear crumple zones were engineered to help absorb impact energy and redirect it away from passengers to help reduce the risk of injury. The 2021 Dodge Challenger also has advanced multistage driver and front passenger airbags, supplemental front and rear side-curtain airbags and front seat-mounted side airbags - all standard. The Challenger is ready to take on inclement weather too. Available rain-sensing windshield wipers activate automatically when moisture is detected while the available Rain Brake Support system removes water from brake pads by applying a small amount of pressure to the caliper. Other advanced safety features including available Automatic High-Beam Headlamps, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning, and Parkview Rear Back Up Camera.
The available Blind Spot Monitoring System assists you in changing lanes by alerting you when a vehicle enters one of your blind spot zones.
Available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning will transmit audible warnings, visual proximity warnings and brake the vehicle if necessary.
The ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera helps you see what’s behind you on the Uconnect® touchscreen when you shift into reverse. Gridlines assist you while maneuvering into parking spaces or narrow areas.
