The 2021 Dodge Charger is available in SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye versions. At the time of compiling this review, official 2021 Charger pricing had yet to be announced, so the figures in parentheses are our estimates and we will update this review when more information becomes available. The SRT Hellcats are also subject to a $1,700 gas guzzler tax. The base-level Charger
(est. $32,000) comes standard with the 3.6-liter V6, remote start, cruise control, keyless entry/ignition, cap-less fuel filler, automatic on/off halogen projector headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, 17-in alloy wheels, manual climate control, power-adjustable front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel/shift knob, cloth upholstery, rear parking sensors, two USB ports,
4 infotainment system with a 7-in touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity,
/Android Auto smartphone integration, and a 6-speaker audio system. Adding all-wheel drive also brings heated side mirrors, LED fog lights, rear spoiler, upgraded ventilated brake discs, 19-inch alloy wheels, 8.4-in touch screen, upgraded infotainment system, and satellite radio. SXT trim is also eligible for the Technology Group, which comes with rain-sensing wipers, automatic high beams,
adaptive cruise control
forward collision warning
with automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. This package is available in the other non-Hellcat versions, but the SXT also receives automatic climate control and a self-dimming rearview mirror. The
(est. $35,000) has those extras that AWD versions of the SXT include, then adds paddle shifters mounted under the
steering wheel, performance suspension, hood scoop, upgraded stability control, 20-in alloy wheels and sport seats. The GT qualifies for the same option packages as the SXT, plus the Performance Handling Group with Brembo brakes (with 4-piston front calipers), high-performance suspension, flat-bottomed steering wheel, and black-finished 20-in forged alloy wheels.
(est. $39,000) is equipped similarly to the GT, but with a 5.7-liter V8, electronically tuned active exhaust and a 160-mph speedometer. R/T and higher trims may be ordered with a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Otherwise, the R/T shares many of the same option packages as the lower trims. The
(est. $42,000) builds on the base-level R/T, adding a 6.4-liter V8, all the features from the GT’s Performance Handling Group, matte black rear spoiler, 180-mph speedometer, SRT configurable drive modes with SRT Performance Pages, drivers’-side memory settings, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, larger rear axle, upgraded differential, larger engine cooling capacity, launch assist/control and line lock (which enables tire-smoking burn-outs of the rear wheels while keeping the front wheels locked in place). The R/T and Scat Pack are eligible for the Daytona Edition Group with leather/Alcantara (simulated suede) upholstery, cold air intake, blind spot monitoring, power-adjustable steering column, heated front seats/steering wheel (standard in the Scat Pack), and various Daytona badges. The Scat Pack can also be augmented by a Widebody package that brings super-wide wheels (11 inches) with correspondingly wider tires and flared fenders, Brembo brakes (with 6-piston front calipers), and an adaptive suspension. The Charger
(est. $70,000) has that Widebody package as standard. It also comes with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, intercooler system/after-run chiller, performance-tuned steering, HID projector headlights, aluminum hood, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, 20-in gloss-black alloy wheels, red brake calipers, 200-mph speedometer, heated/ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, leather upholstery, and a heated SRT leather-wrapped/flat-bottomed steering wheel. The
SRT Hellcat Redeye
(est. $72,000) pushes engine output to previously unheard-of levels, swaps in a 220-mph speedometer and then lets everyone know this is a special Hellcat with Redeye badges and logos dotted around the car. Many non-performance-related extras included in the upper trims are available in the lower trims as options. The Driver Confidence Group is optional in all but the Hellcats, bringing blind spot monitoring with
rear cross-traffic alert
, heated side mirrors and HID projector headlights. Other extras include a sunroof, Alpine audio system, navigation, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats. Available as an option on all trims is the Uconnect 4C infotainment system with navigation.
