As always, the SRT Hellcat houses a 6.2L supercharged V8 with 717 horsepower and 658 lb-ft of torque. The Hellcat Redeye is home to a high-output 6.2L V8 that rips out 797 horsepower. In the Super Stock trim, the high-output supercharged V8 cranks out a drag-strip-ready 807 horsepower! A smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission is used for the V6 models, while the V8 models come standard with a 6-speed manual while the automatic transmission is optional. Want the challenger but crave all-weather capability? All-wheel drive is optional on the SXT and GT trim levels, while rear-wheel drive is standard across the entire lineup.
2021 Dodge Challenger Safety & Security
The Dodge Challenger is a high-performance muscle car, but that doesn’t take away from its safety. All Challenger models come with a high-strength steel frame with crumple zones crafted to divert impact energy away from the cabin. The Challenger also keeps all occupants safe with driver and passenger front and side airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, and side curtain airbags. In addition, accident prevention is provided by driver assists like active front head restraints, a ParkView backup camera, and rain brake support. The rain brake support system activates when the wipers are in use and applies a small amount of pressure to the brake calipers to move water away from the brake pads. Available driver aids include adaptive cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, blindspot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, full-speed forward collision warning with active braking, automatic high beams, and more.

The R/T Scat Pack trim level adds Performance Pages to the Uconnect touchscreen, Brembo performance brakes, line locks, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen.
