Last week, we discussed pricing for the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock from what appeared to be a leaked dealership presentation. Today, FCA has confirmed that number, announcing that the 807-horsepower Challenger has a starting price of $79,595. That does not include destination or Gas Guzzler Tax, but at just $3,000 more than the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the Super Stock package is a smokin’ deal.
Challenger Super Stock Pricing
As mentioned above, the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock has a starting MSRP of $79,595, just $3,000 more than the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. I had initially speculated that the Super Stock package would take the price just under the $82k mark, but Dodge has continued to focus on bang-for-the-buck, offering the first 800+ horsepower full production American road car for under $80k.
When you add in destination, which is currently $1,495, and the Gas Guzzler Tax of $2,100, the out-the-door price rises to $83,190. That is certainly no small chunk of change, but for someone who wants to have the first 800+ horsepower full production American car (remember, the 2018 Demon with 808-840 horsepower was limited production), that price is a bargain. This is also the best basis available for someone looking to go drag racing with their street car.
As we also reported, the only road cars sold in the United States with more power for the 2020 model year are the Bugatti Chiron and the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. The Bugatti costs $3,000,000 and the Ferrari is $625,000. Those are the two most powerful cars sold in the United States for the 2020 model year. The third-most powerful is the Challenger Super Stock at $83,190.
Super Stock Details
Compared to the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the Super Stock has an assortment of unique features that make it more capable on the drag strip.
The first is a unique engine tune that lifts the output to 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. Next, the Bilstein dampers received a unique calibration for the drag strip, the big six-piston front Brembo calipers and 15-inch rotors are replaced by lightweight four-piston calipers and 14.2-inch rotors. These smaller brakes allow for 18-by-11-inch wheels on all four corners, wrapped in 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R drag radials. Finally, the package adds a 3.09 rear gearset.
The results of this package are a 0-60 time of just 3.25 seconds and a stock quarter mile time of 10.5 seconds.
"There are a million jokes about bright colors, loud exhausts and racing stripes that make your car faster, but there is one sure thing — your car is only as fast as your tires," said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “The 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock gives our weekend warriors the ability to upgrade to 18-inch drag radials without having to spend a ton of money on changing out brakes and suspension components. The racing community has figured out very quickly that this package is a hot setup.”
The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock will officially go on sale late this month (the exact date has not been specified) and the company expects to begin delivering the 807-horsepower Mopar muscle cars later this year.
