We’re not guaranteed how the Dodge Charger will get stronger as it will get older. It’s possible talk to The Rock?
For 2021, the Charger will get an asphalt melting 797-horsepower variant that is as irresponsible as it is potent. Which is not a judgement on our element, just unbridled peak-electric power on Dodge’s.
The Charger will get a six.two TCC Ranking many thanks to that functionality and style. Fuel mileage isn’t good, and so what. (Read through a lot more about how we charge cars.)
Review carries on beneath
Like previous 12 months, the Charger is offered in SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat trim stages. A SRT Hellcat Redeye is new this 12 months and massively potent, all-wheel travel is offered on SXT and GT cars with a V-six. Everything else will get rear-travel, a V-8, and a prolific thirst.
The Charger is mechanically related to the Challenger coupe but provides two a lot more doorways and a bucketful of practicality over that car. The Challenger appears to be like much better, but the Charger however appears to be like fantastic.
Each share a lineup of engines that would tax any spreadsheet. The base V-six helps make 292 hp, though a 5.7-liter V-8 helps make 370 hp. A six.four-liter V-8 helps make 485 hp, and the Hellcats acquire over with 717 hp or 797 hp relying on how deep your pockets are.
All are paired to an 8-velocity automatic and rear-wheel travel a lot more often, all-wheel travel is on the menu but misses the issue.
The Charger easily seats four—something the Challenger just cannot say—although the again seats deficiency for extensive-haul comfort. The trunk is major: 16.5 cubic feet.
So is its thirst. The Charger costs anywhere from the mid-20s to the very low-teenagers for gasoline economy—worse if you have a large ideal foot. Looking for good fuel mileage? Hold hunting.
The Charger is geared up with a 7.-inch touchscreen with smartphone computer software, seventeen-inch wheels, and cloth upholstery. Its finest life is with an 8.four-inch touchscreen, 20-inch wheels, functionality goodies, and a sonorous V-8 below the hood.
We’d select a Scat Pack for its mighty six.four-liter V-8, offered possibilities, and offered active basic safety options that aren’t regular on any trim (regrettably) but also not offered on Hellcats. Shucks.
