Overall Rating


With an interior made with good quality materials in the cabin and comfortable seating both in the front and back, the 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 Charger is such an optimum vehicle that various police departments use the sedan as patrol cars. 

The Dodge Charger Sedan does not get any significant changes for 2021

The prices of the 2021 Dodge Charger Sedan start at $29,995 for the base SXT trim. This price tag places the 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.

Both the trims are offered with a standard RWD drivetrain, with an optional AWD on offer. 

2021 Dodge Charger Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

The Dodge Charger has a reputation of being an extremely reliable and an easy to maintain vehicle. With a value for the money price tag and a highly efficient engine, the 2020 Dodge Charger is one of the most practical and affordable muscle cars in the segment, and the 2021 model will remain similar. The Charger used parts and components of high quality, aging well over time. Besides this, this splendid car gets trustable after-sales support, and a well laid out workshop network.

Though there are a number of ways and techniques for deriving the actual reliability and ownership experience of a vehicle, one of the most trusted ways is to call attention to what the JD Power says about it. The JD Power Report gives ratings to vehicles on certain parameters like the Quality, Driving experience, resale value, etc. The ratings are mainly based on reviews by car-owners. 

Over time, Dodge has earned the reputation of being reliable and easy to maintain.

Speaking of this humble Dodge, the 2020 Dodge Charger bagged a JD Power score of 80 out of 100, which happens to be a decent score. Below is a breakdown of this score:

  • Quality and reliability: 75 out of 100
  • Driving Experience: 91 out of 100
  • Resale: 83 out of 100
  • Dealership Experience: 72 out of 100

As per the data available on the NHTSA website, there have been three recalls issued for the 2019 Dodge Charger while there were no recalls made for the 2020 model. These recalls for the 2019 model include:

  • Front Tires may be damaged
  • Sun visors may lack airbag warning information
  • Driver Warnings may not illuminate

We do expect that the brand must have addressed the issues with the launch of the updated Dodge Charger. Lack of any recalls for the 2020 Dodge Charger may also indicate the same. However, it is worth noting that the company replaced/repaired the faulty parts as per customers’ satisfaction, and the customers of the 2019 model did not face any significant hassle in the process.

Speaking of the ownership costs, well the charger is cheap to maintain as it not only gets reliable components but affordable spares as well. On average, the estimated amount of bucks that the Dodge Charger Sedan seeks over a span of 5 years in the name of maintenance costs sums up to $40,675

The near $40,000 cost of ownership might seem a little bit over the top for a $29k sedan but isn't anything too steep given the Charger is a decent midsize luxury sedan. Out of the ownership costs, the majority is taken over the depreciation, Insurance, and financing.

Warranty

The Dodge Charger is one of the best-built cars in the segment and gets reliable and trustable after sales support provided by the brand. The vehicle receives a limited warranty of three years or 36,000 miles while the powertrain gets a maximum warranty of 5-years or 60,000 miles, whichever is earlier. It is worth noting that no complimentary scheduled maintenance plans are being offered by the brand currently.

  • Limited warranty covers 3-years or 36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers 5-years or 60,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

Under the standard warranty, the owners of the vehicle have a cover for any kind of vehicular malfunction which may occur. Dodge offers one of the best dealer networks and after-sales support, which will surely help the buyers maintain this car in the longer run.

Miles Per Dollar

The Dodge Charger gets high-quality components and is an extremely reliable product. Apart from the scheduled maintenance, the car will not require anything extra if driven carefully. In ideal conditions, expect to spend around $1-2 per mile you travel, which not only includes the gas but in addition to this, also includes the consumables, tires, and other wear and tear.

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.

Is buying a used Dodge Charger a good idea?

Taking the user reviews and reliability indexes into consideration, the Dodge Charger turns out to be one of the most reliable and significant cars in the segment. The cost of the spare parts is not very high, and maintaining this car, in the long run, will not take a toll on your wallet in the longer term. Buying a used Dodge Charger will surely turn out to be more economical, but you should be extremely careful while looking for a used Charger as the owners of these cars tend to abuse them a lot.

In case you are planning to buy a used Dodge Charger, we recommend you go for the 2017-18 model. The reason being that the Charger Sedan has not received any significant updates over a long course of time. So by going with a 2017-18 model, you can save a fair share of bucks without really having to compromise on any prominent features. 

2021 Dodge Charger Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The 2021 Dodge Charger gets the same mighty 3.6-L V6 engine under the hood as the 2020 Challenger. This 3.6-L V6 engine churns out 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of peak torque. 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 3.6L V6 engine

The power to weight ratio of the 2021 Dodge Charger is excellent and results in brisk acceleration and impressive performance. Low-end power delivery is strong, but being a V-6, it shows its potential in the top-end. The gearbox offers quick shifts and helps the driver extract the most power from the engine. The car will feel at home in the city, due to its good drivability, but the powerful petrol motor makes it more suitable on the highways as the performance from this engine is supreme. 

The 2021 Dodge Charger Sedan's power kicks in from the lower RPMs but impresses in the top-end.

The Charger remains one of the great cars in the segment, and with the 2021 update, the Charger will get a matured power delivery and will score high in terms of overall performance. Check out the comparison of the Charger with its rival in the table below.

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 Chrysler 300 with a total output of 292 hp delivers similar performance figures as the Charger. 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. Who would've expected the king of frugality could ever overpower the American Classic?

Though the Dodge Charger may lag in terms of power output, it feels planted on the road at triple-digit speeds and does not lose its composure when going over road undulations. The cars feel incredibly stable and agile at the corners, and the overall experience is better than its competition.

The overall steering response from the vehicle is excellent, and the driver will surely enjoy pushing this car into the corners. The feedback from the EPS 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.

2021 Dodge Charger Accelerations and Braking Performance

Taking the performance figures into consideration, the Dodge Charger works out to be one of the fastest vehicles in the segment. The mighty 3.6-L-V6 engine accelerates the 2021 Dodge Charger from 0-60 mph in just 6.4 secs. The ‘21 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 with a high speed of 155MPH, which isn’t bad in everyday life.

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

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.

The 2021 Dodge Charger is a quick vehicle and gets one of the best 0-60 mph timings of just 6.4 secs. However, the 2021 Kia Stinger, which is expected to get a new and more potent 2.5L engine annihilates the competition with the fastest 0-60 and quarter-mile sprint. The 2021 Toyota Avalon is the second fastest with a 0-60 mph time of dot 6 seconds.

Even the Chrysler 300 offers a slightly better 0-60 acceleration time compared to the Charger, owing to its lighter curb weight. In our tests of 60-0 mph braking performance runs, the Dodge Charger came to a complete halt in just 102 ft, which is much better than all the other segment rivals.

2021 Dodge Charger Fuel Economy

7.1/10

Buyers of this segment rarely consider the fuel economy figures. However, the fuel economy figures delivered by Dodge Charger are at par with its rivals. The car 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 2021 Dodge Charger's fuel tank can store up to 18.5 gallons of gasoline at a time. This is one of the most cavernous fuel tanks here in this comparison. Only the homebred brands (Dodge and Chrysler) offer such an immense fuel tank capacity.

The Avalon lives up to its fuel-efficient image despite being one of the most powerful vehicles in the segment.

2021 Dodge Charger Interior

7.0/10

The Dodge Charger scores are very high in terms of interior comfort, practicality, and overall functionality. The interiors of the Dodge Charger are luxurious and of high quality. Besides, bright interiors make the occupants feel calm inside the cabin. The plastics used inside the cabin are of supreme quality and feel very luxurious and soft to touch. With the 2021 update, the car will offer a similar package, if not better.

Being a base model, the 2021 Dodge Charger SXT's cabin does not feel very lavish, yet can excite the purist within you.

At the front, the seats are comfortable, and the seats provide the right amount of cushioning to its passengers. Ingress and egress from the car are easy and secure because of the high stance, and overall, the interiors are decent. Even with a cabin that is very comfortable and feature-rich, the rear seat space in the Charger feels somewhat cramped.

The front seats of the 2021 Dodge Charger SXT are supportive and comfortable

The Charger is a highly practical vehicle for day-to-day use. The car gets enough storage spaces at the front. There is a considerable storage bin in the center console below the driver’s armrest and other small places to store other stuff.

Rear seats of the 2021 Dodge Charger SXT keep the practicality quotient in check

With the 2021 update, the car will get an updated feature list and marginal improvement in terms of the overall dashboard layout and will feature the following features:

  • Illuminated auxiliary driver and passenger-side visor mirrors
  • Full floor console with a covered box
  • Steering wheel with manual tilting, manual telescoping
  • 5 USB ports

2021 Dodge Charger Competition

8.0/10

Dodge Charger vs. Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 is known as a very comfortable and luxurious vehicle. It gets a spacious cabin and 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 Chrysler.

Dodge Charger vs. Kia Stinger

The Stinger is a premium vehicle and comes with a comfortable, practical, and highly equipped cabin. The car gets reliable engine options and delivers faster performance. The vehicle not only gets safe and smooth engines but also drives well in most of the situations. However, the car is not as good as the Charger when it comes to driving dynamics and overall driver engagement.

Kia Stinger

Dodge Charger Vs. Toyota Avalon

Toyota Avalon has always been one of the most reliable and practical vehicles of this segment. The car gets a comfortable cabin, fun to drive nature, powerful powertrain options, and in addition to all this, also gets one of the best design cues, which simply give it a distinctive character.

The charger is the definition of what a real muscle car is. Very raw and out there! No fake sounds or fancy features. To me, the exhaust of Charger is like music!

Charger is just a remorse

First the keyfob stopped working and everything the dealership did to fix it proved to be no good and I had to settle in for a duplicate key which I had gotten when I purchased the car.
