Starting at just $29,995, the 2021 Dodge Charger sedan offers rear-wheel drive, an efficient base V6, and powerful choices of V-8 engines. The Dodge's muscle car also offers more popular options such as all-wheel drive and modern technology including FCA's infotainment and diverse safety aids. The 2021 Dodge Charger lineup includes eight distinct models and five different engines, including - the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with up to 300 horsepower on the Charger SXT, SXT AWD, GT, and GT AWD models. The legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with 370 horsepower on R/T models, and the naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V-8 with 485 horsepower, offering the most horsepower per dollar of any sedan on Scat Pack models. The 717-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat V-8 and new-for-2021, 797-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V-8 on the $78,595 SRT Hellcat Redeye.

The Charger competes in the ever-shrinking segment of full-size sedans along with the platform-mate Chrysler 300, Toyota Avalon, and the Kia Stinger. The 2021 Charger's high ranks in the muscle cars list also stem from its styling packages, wide-body kits, attractive mechanical equipment, and affordable pricing.

Overall Rating

"The Charger is offered with a wealth of engine options ranging from the standard, pedestrian V-6 to the fire-breathing supercharged mill under the hood of the new Charger Hellcat Redeye." - Edmunds.

The 2021 Dodge Charger offers a high-value at affordable pricing, starting at $29,995. With an interior made with good quality materials and comfortable seating both in the front and back, the 2021 Charger scores high on the comfort and practicality factor as well. A naturally aspirated V6 engine is the powerhouse that runs the show in this sedan. The 2021 Dodge Charger comes in six diverse trims: SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye. The SXT and GT models are great choices for most buyers (part of this review). These are the only trims to offer an all-wheel-drive option.

The starting price tag of under $30,000 places the 2021 Dodge Charger in an all-out carnage with rivals such as the Chrysler 300, Kia Stinger, and the Toyota Avalon. The Charger has been an excellent option for a mix between a good family sedan, a daily driver, and something that packs a punch for the weekend getaways. However, with such competitive rivals eyeing the best-seller position, how well will the 2021 Dodge Charger be able to fare? Scroll down to find out.

2021 Dodge Charger Pricing and Features


The rear-drive 2021 Dodge Charger SXT's price starts at $29,995, with the GT going for a selling price of $31,995 (MSRP). The other 2021 Charger grades including the R/T, the lowest-priced Charger with a V8, begins at $36,995. For the Dodge Charger Scat Pack, you will have to shell out $41,095, or $46,595 for the Widebody. The 717-horsepower SRT Hellcat is the performance bargain, starting at $69,995. Now, the new SRT Hellcat Redeye comes in at $78,595. A destination charge of $1,495 is excluded.

Considering the low price tag, the 2021 Dodge Charger comes out as a rather well-rounded package that provides true value for your money, without compromising on the driver's delight facet. Both the trims of the 2021 Dodge Charger, SXT and GT are mechanically identical to each other and only differ on the basis of features available onboard. Both the trims are offered with a standard RWD drivetrain, with an optional AWD on offer.

2021 Dodge Charger Buying Advice

Among the two available trim options for the 2021 Dodge Charger, the GT is clearly a wiser choice to go for. It doesn't increase a lot in MSRP from the base SXT, adding in a lot more features such as the Performance hood, side sills, and fascias, which lend the car an all the way more muscle-car vibe.

2021 Dodge Charger still starts under $30,000 for SXT and 797-HP Redeye is $80K

2021 Dodge Charger Engine and Performance


"Horsepower ranges from 292 ponies all the way up to 797 with a few options in between. Styling, power and price are really the main big reasons to buy a Charger." - AutoBlog.

The 2021 Dodge Charger gets the same mighty 3.6-L V6 engine under the hood as the 2020 Challenger. The SXT and GT models get a strong 3.6-L V6 engine that churns out 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of peak torque (300 hp in the SXT AWD and both GT variants). This engine comes mated to an 8-Speed AT and has an option between an RWD or AWD drivetrain. The engine is very refined, and the power kicks in from the lower RPMs. Performance, too, is excellent, and enthusiasts will love pushing this engine to its maximum limits.

The 2021 Dodge Charger SXT gets a 292 hp 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine

The mighty 3.6-L-V6 engine accelerates the 2021 Dodge Charger from 0-60 mph in just 6.4 secs. The 2021 Charger is capable of running the quarter-mile in only 14.8 seconds, which proves its American Muscle stature. Dodge has electronically limited the Charger SXT and GT with a maximum top speed of 155MPH, which isn’t bad in everyday life. Even the Chrysler 300 offers a slightly better 0-60 acceleration time compared to the Charger, owing to its lighter curb weight. The 2021 Toyota Avalon is the second fastest with a 0-60 mph time of dot 6 seconds.

The Dodge Charger, in its V6 avatar, can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds

The feedback from the EPS (steering) is tremendous, and the driver does feel an instant connection with the vehicle. Push the car into the corners, or drive it in a sedate manner, the engine will always have optimum performance output for every situation.  All four wheels on the 2021 Dodge Charger come with ventilated disc brakes along with many features such as ABS and EBD to enhance the overall braking capabilities of the vehicle. The vehicle comes equipped with 12.6-inch front and 12.6-inch rear brake rotors. Overall, the 2021 Dodge Charger performs decently well in the braking department.

While the 2021 Dodge Charger is not the most powerful car in the segment, it surely delivers a much better power-torque curve and is also one of the most fun to drive units in the division.

The 2021 Kia Stinger leads the pack with the highest power delivery, while the 2021 Toyota Avalon rakes in the second spot with more than 300 hp

The Charger SXT does 19 miles to a gallon in city usage while out on the highway, can do about 30 miles to a gallon. Sum up these figures and you get a combined mpg of 23, which is not at all bad for a ride that's considered a purist's delight and comes fitted with a potent V6 mill.

The Dodge Charger may not be the most fuel-efficient car in the segment, but all thanks to its larger fuel tank capacity, it can go a fair share of distance before coming to stop for a refill. The Avalon lives up to its fuel-efficient image despite being one of the most powerful vehicles in the segment.

2021 Dodge Charger Vs 2021 Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 is known as a very comfortable and luxurious vehicle. The 300 gets a spacious cabin as the 2021 Charger but comes with a very appealing design language. The Chrysler 300 is one of the fastest cars in the segment and gets a highly practical cabin. However, the Chrysler 300 is more of a take on the luxurious aspect rather than the sporty character. So if you need a quick, comfortable, and fun to drive vehicle, the Charger is slightly better than the Dodge.

2021 Dodge Charger Vs 2021 Kia Stinger

The 2021 Stinger comes with a comfortable, practical, and highly equipped cabin but that comes at an extra cost of almost $3000 over the price of the 2021 Charger SXT.
