5 reasons to buy the 2021 Dodge Charger

1. Muscle car credentials

The Dodge Charger comes from a long line of muscle cars, and the 2021 model lives up to that legacy beautifully. Even the base trim has a 292-hp 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, which is more than enough power for most people. If you want to take things to the next level, look for Scat Pack trims. These add a V8 engine with 485 hp, launch assist, and a limited-slip differential, turning your muscle car into a track machine.

2. Powerful engine options

As great as the Pentastar V6 is, if you're looking for a true muscle car growl, you probably want the engine with the most power. That award goes to the supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8, especially the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody trim, which pumps out 797 hp and a whopping 707 lb-ft of torque. There's also an available 5.7L HEMI V8 if you need a good middle ground.

3. Trims for every lifestyle

If you're looking for the perfect blend of practicality and fun, the 2021 Dodge Charger GT steps up from the base SXT trim with 20-inch wheels, a performance black grille, and a hood scoop. To unlock the 5.7L V8 engine, look for the R/T trim. The great thing about the Charger is that it's also available with all-wheel drive across all trims—perfect if you're looking for extra grip when tearing up the canyon road or driving in inclement weather.

4. Great daily driver

Despite all that power under the hood, the 2021 Dodge Charger makes a great daily driver. With four doors and seating for up to five, the Charger can even be a good family vehicle. You'll get 16.5 cu-ft of space in the trunk, which is plenty for day-to-day errands, shopping trips, and weekend breaks. And you can bring your favorite people along for the ride, with 41.8 inches of legroom up front and a generous 40.1 inches in the rear.

5. Far from basic

Even the base model of the 2021 Dodge Charger is equipped with all the creature comforts you need for daily life. As you climb the trim levels, you'll get even more available features. If you want the maximum list of features, look for a Charger with available equipment packages. There are packages that add audio equipment, a cold weather package that adds heated seats, a navigation package that adds GPS, and a whole host of appearance packages that will give your Charger a fiercer look.
