The Dodge Charger R/T comes at a price of $36, 395, while the regular basic Charger with a V6 powertrain comes with a price tag of $29,895. This strategic pricing undercuts its major rivals like Kia Stinger GT, and Chrysler 300 S. On the other hand, the high-performance variants of Dodge Charger like Scat pack Widebody costs $45,995, and the top-spec SRT Hellcat Widebody costs $71,745. 

 

When it comes to manufacturing 4-door muscle cars, most carmakers avoid giving it a shot and rather stick to the luxury quotient. Well, Dodge has been continuing its legacy by bringing the 2021 Charger R/T 4-door sedan for enthusiasts.

9.0/10

" The electrically assisted power steering contributes to the Charger's purposeful control, but its feedback is too heavy and slow to be engaging." - Car and Driver

The 2021 Dodge Charger R/T gets its power from a naturally aspirated 5.7L V8 engine that generates 370 hp and 395 lb. ft. of peak torque. The engine comes mated with 8-speed automatic transmission. The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, on the other hand, comes with a 6.2L supercharged V8 making 717 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.

The transmission handles the Charger’s shifts smoothly. All the power generated from the V8 engine is routed to the rear wheels, which is the only available drivetrain. The Charger R/T’s driving dynamics live up to the expectation of a muscle car. The sedan moves smoothly across the turns and confidently handles sudden brakes. It produces more power than the competition with plenty of torque.

Sporty handling plus daily driving

Pros - 1) Sure footed around corners, 2) Nimble steering, 3) Family friendly

Cons - 1) Fuel economy

It is a nice blend of sporty handling and daily driving. Thus it leaves behind most of the daily driving family sedan in it's race. This R/T is strong and heavy footed. Inspite of being a large sedan, it is quick enough. It provides a nice blend of composed and cushioned ride. Nimbleness of steering is impressive. 370HP HEMI V8 engine in terms of athleticism and ride quality leaves most of the daily driving family sedan behind. It has 370HP 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, electronically controlled active exhaust, 20 inch satin carbon aluminum wheels, performance suspension, houndstooth cloth seats with performance bolsters, leather wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters,and UConnect 4C with 8.4 inch touchscreen display featuring SRT performance pages. Houndstooth cloth seats with performance bolsters, leather wrapped performance steering wheel with paddle shifters, UConnect 4C with 8.4 inch touchscreen display featuring SRT performance pages, DUB plate interior accents, and front plus rear climate control outlets are the highlight features of this model. 20 inch satin carbon aluminum wheels, with Rhombi 2 piece wheel center cap, black performance grille and it's integration with creatively designed headlamps having black bezels, and variety of badges like R/T, HEMI, bright Charger one, and Dodge grille badge makes the exterior appealing and muscular. Peformance hood, steering and suspension help achieve better drive control. It also has safety features like all speed traction control, 3 mode electronic stability control with roll mitigation, rear park assist with backup camera, brake/park interlock, rain brake support, remote start system and advanced airbags. Reliability of this car is very poor. Starting at $36,995, it is nicely priced. My experience there was nice.

Daily driving sports car

Pros - Brakes, all heated seats, can be driven daily

Cons - Fit and finish inside

A sedan that has the capability to catch up with the sports cars and still doesn't let go off the ability to drive me office every morning because of its practical nature. With brakes being the best part about any charger I believe, its a real bang for buck if performance in a family car is your thing A sedan that has the capability to catch up with the sports cars and still doesn't let go off the ability to drive me office every morning because of its practical nature. Brembo brakes, all heated seats, android auto for projection, illuminated cup holders for back, comfortable seats, daytone badging, remote start system and what not. Not the amount of features but the execution of the layout on the inside is what feels cheap and outdated Fit and finish all over could have been a whole lot better. No problem with the cushy heated seats but doesn't look this expensive A few things could have been better inside but everything is in place on the outside. Dual tone black and orange color on the body and twin 5 spoke alloy wheel are my favorite though Security alarm in case it detects impact and features like hill start assist, side and front air bags , rear park assist and camera etc make it safe and ideal for daily use Comes handy for daily commuting, occasional driving, family hauling and stuff like that and asks for normal oil changes and servicing in return Could have done better with the fit and finish on the inside. Always take me in when I visit them and have left me impressed with relatively quick process

Fast and safe

Pros - The sport modeHandlingSafety

Cons - No Sunroof

This vehicle in my book is the best vehicle for anyone wanting bells and whistles, safety, speed, and style. I would recommend this car. This car is an allrounder vehicle. it's great for family, and also for a little bit of fun. Also has great handling and is very safe according to all the safety tests. My favorite feature in this vehicle is the sport mode with shifter paddles on the steering wheel for extra pep when you want to race. The seats are very comfortable and are very roomy for road trips with family. Lots of legroom to relax if you?re a passenger. The sleek outside design makes this baby look like a beast on the streets yet classy in the city for all your transportation style needs. I feel very safe in this vehicle. The body is very sturdy and solid. Has plenty of safety features throughout the car. Would depend on this vehicle for anything. This is my second one and I?m so in love with it being reliable for any situation I?m in. I believe that this car is priced a little high but the safety you get with this vehicle it's a win-win. The car may not be the best but the dealership surely was.
