The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye was one of the most anticipated debuts of the year, finally introducing the supercharged Hemi with 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque to the big sedan lineup. Although the “standard” Hellcat Charger with 707 horsepower was completely unrivaled in the world of gasoline-powered four-doors, many Dodge enthusiasts wanted a sedan that would make short work of the all-wheel-drive Tesla Model S Performance, which is slightly quicker than the 707-horsepower version. More importantly, many devout Charger fans wanted a Redeye model of their own after watching Challenger Redeye fans enjoy nearly 800 horsepower for the past two years.
The Charger Redeye was formally introduced alongside the 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock and the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat as part of the Dodge brand’s continued onslaught of the American performance world. At the time, the company stated that the 797-horsepower Charger would go on sale sometime this fall, but we have confirmed that “sometime” is now. After learning that a few people in the online Dodge community had ordered a Redeye Charger and received a VIN, we reached out to FCA and a Dodge spokesperson confirmed that the most powerful road-going sedan in the world is officially on sale now.
Redeye Charger On Sale Now
This weekend, several people in the Mopar online community shared that they had ordered a 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Some of them shared their invoices with pricing, but for those unsure, most dealerships will take deposits and sell vehicles before FCA will actually accept orders from dealerships. Technically dealers can accept orders on future vehicles whenever they want, and any orders taken before order banks open are simply submitted to FCA when the order banks open. With that in mind, we werent certain if the order bank was actually open for the Redeye Charger. However, when one long-time member of the community explained that she already had her VIN, it seemed likely that the order bank was indeed open.
Upon hearing that, we reached out to FCA and received confirmation that you can officially order a 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye right now.
797 Horsepower Pricing
Shortly after the introduction of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the company announced that this high performance sedan would start at $78,595. However, there were no other pricing details included with that information. However, with some buyers sharing their invoices on Facebook, we know how much some of the key options add to the bottom line.
On the invoice, the Charger is listed as a Hellcat Widebody with the model code LDDT48 and an MSRP of $69,995. The Redeye package is listed as Customer Preferred Package 2BZ with a price of $8,600. When you add those together, you get the official MSRP of $78,595. In terms of options, the power sunroof costs $1,995, the black/red seats cost $295, the Navigation & Travel Group costs $995, the Harman Kardon Audio Group adds $1,995 and locking lugnuts cost $75. Finally, Gas Guzzler Tax adds $2,100 and the Destination Fee adds $1,495 to the bottom line.
All of those option prices are the same as the pricing for the 2020 Charger Hellcat, so we expect that most, if not all, of the current option prices from the 2020 model year will carry over to the 2021 Redeye. In other words, if you start with $78,595 and use the option prices on Dodge.com for the 2020 Charger Hellcat Widebody, you should be able to calculate how much your ideal 797-horsepower sedan will set you back.
