Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Dodge Challenger

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 7, 2020
  • 2020 Challenger still on sale in good numbers
  • Factory rebate up to $8,070 for all buyers
  • Lease from $322 for 39 months
  • Get 0% APR for up to 72 months

Take your pick:

The carryover 2020 Challenger remains in healthy supply in most areas. You should be able to find you want without having to hunt.

When you get to the dealer, expect to find a healthy selection of V6-powered Challenger SXT models on hand and enough V8 R/T and T/A models to go around. The high-performance SRT models are produced in far fewer numbers. The SRTs were previously excluded from factory offers, but now carry some of the highest rebates we've ever seen on the Challenger.

A late addition to the 2020 Challenger lineup, the SRT Super Stock makes 807 horsepower, the most of any Challenger currently available.

Current factory offers will remain in effect through November 30, 2020. Lease promotions listed below are available on a national basis. Rebates and APR offers can vary by region. Figures shown here are for California. It's possible Dodge will modify incentives for Black Friday weekend.

Up to $8,070 off:

The 2020 Challenger SXT and GT one again comes with a $5,300 rebate for all buyers. The R/T gets $3,750 — or $4,850 with the available Scat Pack.

At the top of the lineup, the 2020 SRT Hellcat carries a $7,170 rebate, and SRT Hellcat Redeye comes with $7,970 rebate. The SRT Super Stock gets the most, a hefty $8,070.

What to expect on a lease:

The 2020 Challenger SXT starts at $322 for 39 months (12,000 miles a year) with $4,249 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost is $431, which is better than last month's offer, but still rather expensive for this price class. Purchasing makes more sense this month. We expect to see substantial improvement before the model year ends.

0% for 72:

Instead of the cash rebate on a 2020 Challenger, you can now get 0% financing for 72 months on the Hellcat and Super Stock trims. The best rate on the rest of the lineup is 0% for 36 months.

2021 Dodge Challenger: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The Dodge Challenger has remained structurally the same since its arrival in 2008, though it has been through significant mechanical, technological, and visual refreshes over the years. When the 2021 Challenger hits showrooms, we expect it to be a carryover model.

On the outside, we expect the 2021 Dodge Challenger to continue with the same muscle-car look it’s had since arriving in 2008. This will include its traditional three-box design with aggressive hood options, a bold chin and rear spoiler, loads of wheel options, and even a Widebody Package.

Inside, the Dodge Challenger has long boasted a straightforward-looking cabin with a simple design and plenty of wide-open black spaces. Some may find its lack of style bland, but it matches its muscle-car roots nicely. Despite its design simplicity, the current Challenger has loads of up-to-date tech, including a standard 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay®, dual-zone climate control, and more. Buyers seeking more tech can opt for an 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation, and more. We expect this to remain the same when the 2021 Challenger arrives.


Dodge Challenger

We expect the same wide range of powertrain options under the 2021 Challenger’s hood. If this is the case, it’ll start with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces up to 305 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. Next up will be the R/T model’s 5.7-liter V8 that pounds out 375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. The R/T Scat Pack will drop in a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with 485 hp and 476 lb-ft of torque. Buyers seeking massive power will find this in the SRT Hellcat model that’ll boast a 717-hp 6.2-liter supercharged V8. Topping the range will be the SRT Hellcat Redeye that pushes the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 to 797 hp.

The current Dodge Challenger struggled in IIHS safety testing, as it received “Good” ratings in just two of the five crash tests. It also lacks automatic emergency braking, which knocked it further out of contention for a Top Safety Pick rating. It does, however, have optional forward-collision warning. We expect these safety features and ratings to carry over unchanged into the 2021 Challenger.

Pricing & Release Date

Dodge has not revealed the official release date for the 2021 Challenger, but we expect it to follow the same schedule as previous models. This would give it a fall 2020 on-sale date.

Pricing for the 2021 Challenger will range from $29,790 for the SXT RWD to $60,490 for the SRT Hellcat (destination fees included).

This muscle car will compete with the Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang, and even its four-door sibling, the Dodge Charger.
