Earlier this summer, Dodge launched the mad 2021 Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye as the most powerful and fastest sedan on the market. There’s really nothing that comes close to its 797 hp and 203 mph top speed, let alone with four doors, at any price. But when you consider its base price comes in under $80,000 at $78,595, the Charger Hellcat Redeye is truly in a league of its own. Along with the Redeye, Dodge has also announced the pricing for the rest of the 2021 Charger lineup.
For a base level Charger, the price of entry stays the same as 2020 at $29,995. That gets you the SXT trim with a 292 hp Pentastar V6. In other words, it’s a nice family sedan, if a little rental car spec. Dodge hasn’t mentioned any pricing changes for the 2021 Charger GT or R/T, so expect those to stay the same as 2020 too, at $31,995 and $36,495 respectively.
Step up to the Scat Pack, or where the Charger starts getting serious, and the price has a slight rise from $40,495 to $41,095. It’s unclear if the Scat Pack Widebody’s price stays at $46,495 like 2020. No matter the price, the Scat Pack offers best in class naturally aspirated 485 hp from the 392 Hemi V8. It can also boast having the most hp per dollar of any sedan in the industry.
Dodge doesn’t want customers to let the regular Hellcat to get lost in the shadow of the Redeye, either. They’ve already sweetened the deal with adding an extra 10 hp, boosting power to 717. Better yet, the entry price is actually $2,100 cheaper than 2020, with a $69,995 base price. It’s impressive to see the Hellcat sneak under $70 grand. Like last year, the Charger Hellcat (and Redeye) will only be offered in Widebody form.
With the addition of the Hellcat Redeye model as the top dog, the 2021 Dodge Charger lineup continues the tradition of an being attractive and practical sedan with an unbeatable performance to dollar ratio.
