2021 Dodge Challenger - Now in Calgary
What to Expect from the new Dodge Challenger
The 2021 Dodge Challenger is a rowdy, retro muscle car that offers powerful engine options, a surprisingly comfortable and roomy interior, and an all-wheel-drive that allows drivers to enjoy the car in all weather conditions. These features allow the Challenger to stand out from its rivals. While it offers power and performance, it does not skimp on quality in other areas like its competitors.
Three engine options are found in the 2021 Dodge Challenger. The base V6 engine offers 305 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic transmission. It has plenty of juice, but the real performance is found in Dodge's HEMI V8 engines.
A 5.7-litre V8 delivers 375 horsepower, rocketing the Challenger to fast acceleration while maintaining a smooth ride. For drivers that want to maximize the Challenger's capabilities, the engine to get is the 6.4-litre V8, which offers 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque.
With all engine options, the Challenger sticks tightly to corners and makes aggressive moments. However, the ride is smooth and comfortable even as the power breaks loose.
The Challenger also offers two Hellcat engine options on its SRT Hellcat models--a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 that delivers 717 or 807 horsepower depending on the model chosen.
Dodge Challenger Buying Options
Dodge's easy-to-use Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system is included on every model of the Challenger. It comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Bluetooth, SiriusXM, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The 2021 Dodge Challenger sticks to its roots with a class muscle car interior inspired by its 1970s-era predecessors. It offers much more space inside than its rivals, with a back seat that can actually fit adults in a normal, not cramped position.
The cabin is not the only place with space; the Challenger also offers more cargo capacity than the Camaro and Mustang. That advantage grows when the back seats are folded down, and the cabin also offers a big centre console for additional storage.
The exterior of the 2021 Dodge Challenger is simply a modernized version of the original vehicle. Featuring muscular lines and halo LED-accented headlamps, the 2021 model is configured to resemble the 1971 Challenger. It also offers contemporary features such as a long hood, short tail, and split grille to keep pace with the competition.
