5 reasons to buy the 2021 Dodge Challenger

1. Great looks

Exterior design may not be the greatest priority when buying a car, but you want your next car to look good, at the very least. That's certainly the case with the 2021 Dodge Challenger—in fact, it's a real head-turner. It features a classic, sporty look, with a unique long dual-snorkel hood that really stands out. It's fitted with 18x11-inch, low-gloss, granite wheels that contribute towards the overall aggressive and imposing exterior. The typical round headlights Dodge is known for, plus the pretty split LED taillights only add to the beauty and appeal of the 2021 Challenger.

2. Wide range of engine options

Once you're done admiring it from the outside, you will probably be eager to see what the 2021 Dodge Challenger has to offer under the hood. And chances are you will be thrilled with the wide range of engine options. The 2021 Dodge Challenger comes standard with a 303-hp, 3.6L V6 engine that's paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Available options include a 5.7L V8 with 372 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, as well as a 6.4L V8 generating 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. For even more power, there is the supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that puts out 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque.

3. Lots of standard features

As far as equipment is concerned, the 2021 Dodge Challenger comes with plenty of standard features that make every ride more comfortable and enhance the overall driving experience. For starters, it's equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatibility. It also comes with two USB ports and Bluetooth® connectivity, as well as a six-speaker stereo system. Dual-zone automatic climate control and proximity keyless entry are also standard.

4. Comfortable interior

Although it may not seem like the 2021 Dodge Challenger has a lot of room for passengers at first glance, it actually has a surprisingly spacious and comfortable interior. It can seat five, with the second row of seats offering much more room for passengers than most other two-door sports cars. In the back, it has 37.1 inches of headroom and 33.1 inches of legroom. The front-row headroom measures 39.3 inches, with legroom at 42 inches.

5. Thrilling performance

Thanks to the potent engine lineup, the 2021 Dodge Challenger delivers exciting performance. Quick acceleration and high top speeds are pretty much a guarantee, so you can rest assured that you will have a lot of fun behind the wheel. The fastest version of the 2021 Dodge Challenger is the SRT Super Stock trim, powered by the 807-hp 6.2L V8 engine, going from zero to 60 mph in 3.25 seconds and capable of reaching a maximum speed of 168 mph (according to the manufacturer, when new). These are the kind of capabilities that are bound to make you want to take it to the open road as often as possible and enjoy the raw power that's typical of all Challenger models.
