2021 Dodge Charger Pricing for All Nine Models
Late last month, we announced the official pricing for the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. As we learned prior to that from a leaked dealership document, the 797-horsepower super sedan starts at $78,595. That was the biggest news pertaining to 2021 Charger pricing, but not everyone will be buying a Redeye sedan so today, we take a look at the base pricing for each of the 9 models offered for the upcoming model year.
2021 Charger V6 Models
First up, we have the 2021 Dodge Charger models which are powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and the automatic transmission that is standard across the entire lineup. This includes the SXT, SXT AWD, GT and GT AWD, with the SXT in rear-wheel-drive form offering 292 horsepower well the rest pack 300 horsepower. None of the prices discussed below include the $1,495 destination fee.
The “base” Charger SXT in rear-drive form starts at $29,995 while the same package with all-wheel-drive starts at $33,595. If you step up to the more well-appointed Charger GT, the rear-drive sedan with the unique air intake system and sport exhaust system yield 300 horsepower starts at $31,995. That same package with all-wheel-drive starts at $34,995 and all of these V6 prices are the same for 2021 as they were for 2020.
Naturally Aspirated Hemi Chargers
Next up, we have the three 2021 Dodge Charger models powered by a naturally aspirated Hemi V8. This includes the R/T with the 370-horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi and the Scat Pack models with the 392-cubic inch Hemi offering 485 horsepower.
The 2021 Charger R/T starts at $36,995, making this the most affordable V8-powered option in the lineup even though it costs $500 more than it did for 2020.
If you want the most bang for your buck, you want the 485-horsepower Charger Scat Pack, which starts at $41,095. That price is up $600 from 2020. This price yields a cost-per-horsepower of about $85 for the Scat Pack, while the R/T is around $100 per horsepower.
Finally, the best performing 2021 Charger with a naturally aspirated Hemi is the Scat Pack Widebody, which starts at $46,595, which is just $100 more than 2020 pricing. Even with this price increase, the Scat Pack Widebody is still a smokin’ deal for a sedan with such incredible performance capabilities.
Finally, we come to the two supercharged Dodge Charger models for the 2021 model year. As mentioned above, the new Redeye starts at $78,595. The “regular” SRT Hellcat sedan starts at $69,995 for 2021, which is unchanged from 2020, even though the output climbs from 707 to 717 horsepower. Unlike the rest of the Charger models mentioned above, the two supercharged models also require a Gas Guzzler Tax expense of $2,100 in addition to destination fees.
In short, the 2021 Charger costs a bit more across most models, but it is an insignificant amount when you consider the list of features and the lack of any real competition.
