2021 Dodge Charger Review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Dodge Charger?

The Dodge Charger is a full-size sedan that can seat up to five people. It runs on a standard 292-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Also available are a 370-hp, 5.7-liter V-8; a 485-hp, 6.4-liter V-8; and a 717- or 797-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered. Competitors include the Nissan Maxima and Toyota Avalon.

What’s New on the 2021 Dodge Charger?

A new SRT Hellcat Redeye features a 797-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine along with flared fenders and wider wheels and tires. Brembo disc brakes and Bilstein adaptive shocks are also included. The SRT Hellcat model continues and is now rated at 717 hp — 10 hp more than last year. Both Hellcat sedans get a new hood and updated trim, while GT models with AWD get new 20-inch wheels.  

What Features in the 2021 Dodge Charger Are Most Important?

  • Wide range of powertrains
  • Rear- or all-wheel drive
  • 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system standard
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity standard 
  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking available 

2021 Dodge Charger Vs. 2021 Toyota Avalon: How Do They Compare?

If you’re willing to trade ride comfort and cabin roominess for performance and attitude, the Charger takes the lead. It offers a range of V-8 engines, whereas the Avalon has just four-cylinder or V-6 power. The front-wheel-drive Avalon also comes in fewer varieties, though Toyota does offer a TRD performance version. The Avalon is also available in gas-electric hybrid form, which the Charger doesn’t offer. Both cars pack plenty of available multimedia features. 

Should I Buy the 2021 Dodge Charger

With its rear-wheel-drive platform and available high-output V-8 engines, the Charger is a bit of an outlier among its competitors. It should be high on your list if you’re looking for a four-door muscle car.

My dream car. Beautiful

This car is the most beautiful car that I have ever owned. . It was built to my exact specifications by the factory. This was the first time in my life that I have ordered a car from the factory. A very rewarding experience thanks to Edward Parker and Kyle.

Most futuristic color car I’ve had

New look for me I’m use to driving trucks/Jeep’s to switch back to a car was adjustment but I’m open for the new change it’s a sports car with a nice color so it was worth the switch I have been enjoying it thus far
