dodge has given the charger srt hellcat its 797-hp redeye treatment for the 2021 model year, and the new car starts at $80,090. in other words, that's more than two and a half times the starting price of the base charger sxt. that much tamer and less interesting 292-hp rear-wheel-drive model starts things off at $31,490.
dodge boasts that the redeye is the world's fastest mass-production sedan, and based on its claimed top speed of 203 mph, we can't really argue with that. the redeye is powered by the revered hellcat supercharged 6.2-liter v-8, but in the redeye, it's equipped with a larger 2.7-liter supercharger and gets a few improvements to help the engine churn out 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. the standard 717-hp charger srt hellcat starts at $71,490.
the powerful hellcats are the top-of-the-line models, and if you aren't as power hungry as the folks at dodge and jeep these days, you can get some slightly more civilized high-performance models, such as the naturally aspirated v-8-powered scat pack. starting at $42,590, or $48,090 when optioned with the widebody kit, the scat pack is powered by dodge's 392-cubic-inch hemi v-8 that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. the charger r/t, powered by a 370-hp 5.7-liter v-8, starts at $38,490.
both gt and sxt models are available with either rear- or all-wheel-drive and start at $31,490 for the sxt, $33,490 for the gt, $35,090 for the sxt awd, and $36,490 for the gt awd. they are powered by a 3.6-liter v-6. on all-wheel-drive models, engine calibration plus a cold-air intake and a sport exhaust make the engine good for up to 300 horsepower. on rear-wheel-drive models, the v-6 makes 292 horsepower.
the 2021 dodge chargers will arrive in dealerships in early 2021.
