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

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.)

Evaluation continues beneath

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.
