We’re not sure how the Dodge Charger gets more powerful as it gets more mature. It’s possible request The Rock?
For 2021, the Charger gets an asphalt melting 797-horsepower variant that is as irresponsible as it is powerful. Which is not a judgement on our element, just unbridled peak-electric power on Dodge’s.
The Charger gets a six.two TCC Rating many thanks to that general performance and fashion. Fuel mileage isn’t excellent, and so what. (Study a lot more about how we price cars.)

Like very last yr, the Charger is offered in SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat trim degrees. A SRT Hellcat Redeye is new this yr and massively powerful, all-wheel drive is offered on SXT and GT cars with a V-six. Everything else gets rear-drive, a V-eight, and a prolific thirst.
The Charger is mechanically connected to the Challenger coupe but adds two a lot more doors and a bucketful of practicality more than that vehicle. The Challenger seems better, but the Charger however seems good.
Equally share a lineup of engines that would tax any spreadsheet. The base V-six helps make 292 hp, when a 5.7-liter V-eight helps make 370 hp. A six.four-liter V-eight helps make 485 hp, and the Hellcats consider more than with 717 hp or 797 hp based on how deep your pockets are.
All are paired to an eight-velocity automatic and rear-wheel drive a lot more typically, all-wheel drive is on the menu but misses the level.
The Charger comfortably seats four—something the Challenger cannot say—although the back again seats absence for lengthy-haul consolation. The trunk is major: 16.5 cubic ft.
So is its thirst. The Charger fees anywhere from the mid-20s to the lower-teenagers for gasoline economy—worse if you have a weighty correct foot. Seeking for excellent gas mileage? Retain on the lookout.
The Charger is outfitted with a 7.-inch touchscreen with smartphone software, 17-inch wheels, and cloth upholstery. Its greatest lifestyle is with an eight.four-inch touchscreen, 20-inch wheels, general performance goodies, and a sonorous V-eight beneath the hood.
We’d pick a Scat Pack for its mighty six.four-liter V-eight, offered selections, and offered lively safety capabilities that are not regular on any trim (regrettably) but also not offered on Hellcats. Shucks.
