2021 Dodge Charger
The 2021 Dodge Charger sedan is the coffee to your morning with its dynamic driving power and stellar handling capabilities. The new model already comes out swinging with the introduction of the SRT Hellcat Redeye providing a rip-roading 797 horsepower. GT models are also augmented with available all-wheel-drive. The automaker’s extensive range of power-filled V8 models is reason enough to make the Charger your partner in crime.
6.2-liter supercharged V8
Avail. Engine Type
The latest Charger has five engine options, each that are more fun-filled the higher the tier. The entry-level SXT employs a 3.6-liter with 292 horsepower, then the SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD sedans earn just 12 more points to their roster. R/T models are paired with the famous SRT Hellcat 5.7-liter engine that gives out 370 horses.
The higher ranking trims all get the supercharged V8: The Scat Pack with the 485 horsepowered 6.4-liter, the SRT Hellcat with the 717 horsepowered 6.2, and finally that Granddaddy SRT Hellcat Redeye that rages a skin-peeling 797 horsepower.
Driving The Redeye
This hell-raising Hellcat is considered to be the most energetic production sedan, as well as the fastest, owing to its speed of 0 to 60 mph in just about 3.5 seconds, finally reaching its top speed of 203 mph.
This steamy and sexy sedan has a smooth round nose that aids its aerodynamics. The rear also sports a unique “racetrack” design for its taillights. This color is known for its bold colors and names to match such as Go Mango, F8 Green, Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, ToRed, and White Knuckle.
Redeyes get alloy wheels that range from 17- to 20-inches. The Scat Pack even has a widebody option with wheels that are 11inches wide.
The handsome cabin is all business with its charming dashboard that is comparable to that of a cockpit. Some models have seats that are comfortable due to their form-fitting nature, and others include either Alcantara or hound’ s-tooth-decorated cloth. Some may not expect to have great comfort in the back, as the hip-, head-, and legroom is quite plentiful for adults.
The Charger has a generous amount of standard features like chrome exhaust tips, LED daytime running lights, acoustic front glass and windshield, 17-inch alloy wheels, remote start, keyless entry/ignition, power windows, automatic on/off headlights, leather-wrapped steering wheel, programmable digital gauge cluster, rear parking sensors, 7-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 4, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, two USB ports, and a 6-speaker audio setup.
Options features involve a powered sunroof, leather upholstery, sport suspension, heated steering wheel, navigation, satellite radio, and the choice between Alpine or Harman Kardon sound systems.
Safety Features and Warranty
The most prominent safety features are bundled together, like The Driver Confidence Package that has blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, heated side mirrors, and LED fog lamps. The Technology package then comes with forward-collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic high beams (not included on Hellcat models).
Warranties include a basic coverage of three years or 36,000 miles and Powertrain for five years or 60,000 miles.
