The Dodge Charger of today is quite an exhilarating experience for owners and passengers alike. While fewer cars are on the road today, even fewer are packed with the kind of engineering feats offered by the Dodge Charger muscle car. The modern Charger is exceptional and definitely different from the famed Dodge Charger vehicles of old. But just how much faster and stronger is the 2021 Dodge Charger compared to the beloved Charger muscle cars from half a century ago? Does the 1971 Dodge Charger hold up? The Charger from 1971 was new and ran through the 1974 model. The price back then was a staggeringly low $3,775. A rear-wheel drive car with a V8 engine that offers 230 horsepower in the base trim and as much as 425 horsepower at the high end. Dodge manufactured exactly 82,114 of these classic muscle cars.

Improvements and Added Value In the Charger 

The Dodge brand is currently enjoying awards that have long been established as some of the most important in the industry: winning a top spot of the J. D. Power Initial Quality Study for 2021. After winning the top spot in 2020, lately the most recent Dodge muscle cars have more than putting a smile on the face of owners. The 2021 Dodge Charger is packed with power, as much as 292 horsepower starting in the base Charger SRT trim and as much as 797 horsepower offered in the top-tier, 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. We can’t say enough good things about this absolutely gorgeous and stunning Dodge muscle car. 

So Which Dodge Charger Is Stronger Between the Two?

For those that are keeping score, that’s a difference of 372 horsepower between the two highest trims for the respective Charger muscle cars of 1971 versus 2021. The Charger is roughly 1,500 pounds heavier in weight compared to the finish offered in the 1971 model year. Today’s Charger ranges in the 4,000 to 4,586 range while the 19171 model year Charger hit in the low 3,000 pound range. Despite the added weight, the modern Charger enjoys the perks of the latest technology to produce faster quarter-times. The 19171 Charger could go 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and finish the quarter-mile in 13.73 seconds at 104 mph. Ready to be impressed? The 2021 Dodge Charger can go from 0 to 60mph in only 4.3 seconds and hits a 12.4 quarter-mile time.

The starting price for a new 2021 Dodge Charger goes for $31,125 MSRP (Plus destination fee).

Dodge has been trusted by many new owners to provide a remarkable driving experience; as of 2021, Dodge has now been named the most appealing brand, tied with Porsche. Examine the perks that come from the muscle bound brand and the first thought is the immense power from the massive V8 engines like the ones found in the Challenger and Charger models. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, accepted the phenomenal rating of 882 based on the 1,000-point scale. This is the second year in a row that they earned this rating based on the APEAL study from J.D. Power. The Dodge brand was ranked highest with fellow Stellantis brand, Ram, earning the second-highest point total. Dodge earned these impressive J.D. Power marks after 110,827 owners of brand new 2021 model year vehicles were surveyed after 90 days of ownership.

The new 2021 Charger Scat Pack Widebody is a famous example extending extraordinary value and significant thunder to make owners relish the purr and roar of this SRT car. Street Racing Technology (SRT) might become a thing of the past with the launch of the new generation Challenger and Charger trims coming out when the next-generation models appear in fewer than two years. 

“One of the biggest factors driving the industry’s improvement this year is the introduction of several highly appealing new models. The APEAL Study measures owners’ emotional attachment to their new vehicle, and the product launches that took place this model year have done a really good job. Some are all-new and some are redesigns, but the new launches demonstrate that automakers are getting even better at hitting buyers’ emotional triggers,” David Amodeo, director of global automotive at J.D. Power, said in the release.

The Most Important Facts When Car Buying

The most impressive facts for new car shoppers to take note of when buying a vehicle; checking to see if there are awards that showcase how responsible a brand is at providing excellence from day one of vehicle ownership. Among those vehicles, Dodge is actually ahead of nearly every other automotive brand earning the top spot in 2020 and 2nd place finish in 2021 according to J. D. Power’s Initial Quality Study. This is just one important step to take note of when buying a vehicle. 

Another Dodge SUV Coming Soon

Dodge goes the extra lengths to provide customers with the newest technologies and equipping the newest Dodge muscle car lineup with an enhanced product line. Fans and buyers alike are more than likely happier than most owners of new vehicles. The current generation of Dodge muscle cars (both the Charger and Challenger) are currently finishing the last few years of the third-generation. However, we know the brand is seeing record sales for these muscle cars. The Dodge brand has recently shown hints and development photos of a new SUV aimed at the Mexican and South American market. The new Dodge SUV is rooted from the GAC GS5 SUV that is produced by Stellantis (parent company of Dodge) and sold in China only. The GAC GS5 can be found in some South American countries and has a sturdy turbocharged 1.5-Liter four-cylinder engine that nets owners 150 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque.

Could we see this new SUV arrive in the United States? While we have a fond place for the beloved Dodge Challenger product and invite our readers to come check out all the latest Dodge vehicles ready for a test-drive, we would love to see another vehicle join the Dodge Durango in the SUV segment. We are looking at a price range that is lower than the Durango in those markets. The Durango sells for $44,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee) for the South American countries that will receive the next Dodge SUV. The Dodge crossover segment lost the Dodge Journey, but time will tell if we see an American version of the newest Dodge SUV.

Dodge, Stellantis Earn Top Spot On J.D. Power IQS For 2021

With the future of the Dodge brand moving towards electric vehicles, 2021 might go down as one of the fastest flying years on record, along with the record amount of Atlantic tropical storms. After last year’s seemingly never-ending to now being in the last season before 2022, we’ve come quite a long way. And during this whole experience, the Dodge brand has earned results to inspire buyers while hoisting another award. This time the trophy comes from the 2021 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study that lists Dodge as the brand that finishes second on a list that includes all the top automotive brands. Dodge won the top spot last year and isn’t far off this year. A 223-question study was given to new car owners who felt the most positive and pleasant initial encounter was with these brands. Each year, this survey helps new car shoppers reflect on their experience with a vehicle over the course of the first few months of ownership. 

“If you start with strong design, and follow that up with discipline on the plant floor, you get the kind of results we’re seeing today,” metro Detroit native Mark Champine, head of North America customer experience at Stellantis, said in a news release.

Into the Numbers of 2021 J.D. Power’s IQS

Each year, this J.D. Power survey helps new car shoppers reflect on their experience with a vehicle over the course of the first few months of ownership (the first ninety days of ownership to be specific). This is when problems should least likely appear and buyers want to know what to expect; if any problems appear, what they liked most, and other important aspects of purchasing a vehicle. Based on the problems listed per 100 vehicles, the system includes ways to gauge gain information on serious mechanical issues to problems with the infotainment system. Dodge owners only experience 139 complaints per 100 vehicles. The survey includes tens of thousands of responses each year. A big issue is smartphone connectivity across many brands. 

“They’ve done a particularly good job of preventing problems from occurring. The key is design quality. Most of the problems people report are not because vehicles aren’t built properly. The majority of problems are because vehicles aren’t designed properly or with the customer in mind. Often, the factories get the rough end of this. There is a problem with the navigation system, for instance. The assembly plants are responsible just for installing it into the vehicle. It’s not their fault the navigation system doesn’t work,” said David Sargent, vice president of automotive quality at J.D. Power, told the Free Press.
