2021 Dodge Charger: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - December 27, 2019

Model Preview

The Dodge Charger received a comprehensive update in 2015, but it has remained structurally the same vehicle since its arrival in 2011. The 2021 Dodge Charger will continue this trend, as we expect it to arrive as a carryover model.

As a carryover model, we expect the 2021 Dodge Charger to carry on with the same looks it’s had since its 2015 revamp. This will include its traditional three-box design, a sloped nose, wraparound headlights, a tapering roofline, a deck-lid spoiler, and racetrack LED taillights. Buyers craving more sportiness will still have the sharp-looking GT, R/T, and Hellcat models to pick from, plus there will also be a widebody package to further enhance its status as the most muscular sedan on the market.

Inside, the Charger has long boasted a straightforward-looking cabin with lots of open, black spaces. Despite its simple looks, the current Charger boasts the most desirable tech, including a standard 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an available 8.4-inch infotainment system, navigation, premium audio systems, and more. We expect this delicate mixture of simplicity and tech to remain the same in the 2021 Charger.

Dodge Charger

We also expect the 2021 Charger to continue with the same wide range of powertrain options, starting with its standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 292 horsepower in the base SXT and 300 horsepower in the SXT AWD and GT models. Next in line is the R/T model’s 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that injects 370 hp. Opt for the R/T Scat Pack, and the Charger will gain a 485-hp 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that zips it to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. Topping the range will be the SRT Hellcat with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that delivers 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque and rockets this sedan to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds with the Widebody Package.

No matter which Charger you choose, it’ll come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is the only setup in most models, but buyers can pair the V6 engine with all-wheel drive in the SXT and GT trims.

The current Dodge Charger missed the mark in IIHS testing with a “Marginal” score in the driver’s side small-overlap crash test and a “Poor” headlight rating. It did, however, earn a “Superior” score with its optional automatic emergency braking, but the low headlight and small-overlap score prevented it from being a Top Safety Pick. We expect the safety features and ratings to remain the same in the 2021 Dodge Charger.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date for the 2021 Dodge Charger, but based on previous model years, we expect it to arrive in the fall of 2020.

With no changes coming, we expect the Charger to arrive with pricing similar to the current model, which ranges from $31,390 to $71,140 (destination fees included).

This midsize performance sedan will compete with the Nissan Maxima, Chrysler 300, and the Genesis G80.
