The Dodge Challenger, known for its ability to turn heads and its impressive performance, will return this year with many improvements. Its competitors, the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang have placed emphasis on speed while Dodge has taken a different approach for the new Challenger model by combining speed and comfort. All three of these iconic American muscle cars are beloved by different groups of people and for different reasons. Dodge hopes to establish itself in a particular lane in the market by offering a powerful but smooth ride.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger

The entry-level base model, initially releasing with an affordable starting price of $29,790, has a lot to offer in terms of speed and performance, and these characteristics only get stronger with each subsequent upgrade. The R/T Scat Pack, for example, improves the base’s 305 horsepower to an astounding 485 horsepower for any thrill-seekers looking to buy into the Dodge brand. While offering a V6 engine unlike its competitors’ V8s, the new Challenger’s initial test drive reviews have called it much more smooth and comfortable.

Its interior places an emphasis on nostalgia, basing its design on classic muscle cars from the 1960s and ‘70s. Its passenger legroom is spacious, which is another upside over the new Mustangs and Camaros on the market. The Challenger takes advantage of Dodge’s standard Uconnect infotainment system, which makes for easy connectivity and supports seamless smartphone integration. A sizable trunk compartment makes this a far more practical option than expected for such a powerhouse. 

The only muscle car with full-wheel drive, the 2021 Dodge Challenger looks to be a unique reinterpretation of its classic roots. American-made, powerful, and reasonably priced, this release is one we’re looking forward to watching this year.
