The current generation of the famous nameplate definitely won’t leave such a huge trail in the automotive industry as the iconic models from the 60s. However, it is still a great choice for those who are looking for a large sedan with plenty of muscles. The current generation has been around for a pretty long time, but the latest reports suggest the next model won’t arrive before 2023. Therefore, it seems pretty obvious that 2021 Dodge Charger won’t feature any particular changes.
That means you may count on familiar design characteristics, which are mostly about powerful engine options. However, this sedan is more than that and also offers a comfortable cabin, composed handling and attractive exterior design. Some sources suggest we might see a new version in the next year, but if we consider that there are already numerous variants of this sedan, these rumors shouldn’t be taken too seriously. In any case, we expect that the 2021 Dodge Charger release date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year.
2021 Dodge Charger Design
Despite the rumors about the 2021 Dodge Charge redesign, a complete overhaul won’t happen that soon. As we already mentioned, the current generation is expected to remain in production until 2023, so changes for the next year definitely won’t come. Therefore, you may count on a familiar design, which was introduced in 2011, but significantly updated in 2015. This facelift has brought tons of interesting novelties, starting from a completely revised exterior design. We saw a completely new front face, while the rest of the sheet metal also received modifications.
Therefore, it would be hard to expect any particular novelty in the next couple of years, considering that the complete overhaul is in plans for the near future. Still, don’t exclude the possibility to see some new color options and similar tweaks.
The cabin of this model won’t get any change either. Therefore, count on familiar design characteristics, which are a kind of a mixed bag. On one side, the overall interior quality and styling definitely won’t impress you. There is a lot of plastics, while the dashboard looks outdated. On the other side, the cabin is very spacious and comfortable. You may count on an ample amount of leg and headroom and plenty of comfort in both rows of seats. Also, count on standard power-adjustable seats. In higher trims, you can also get things like leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel. When it comes to cargo volume, you may count on a typical trunk size. In numbers, this goes around 16.5 cubic feet, which is about average for the class.
There’s always a chance to see a couple of novelties on the list of standard equipment, but we are pretty sure that 2021 Dodge Charger changes will be minimal and that most of the things will remain the same. Therefore, expect that base models will come standard with things like a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and two USB ports. Higher trims will be available with additions like a bigger 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation, HD Radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, automatic climate control etc.
When it comes to safety, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors are the only things you can find on the list of standard features. On the other side, you can get a lot of optional upgrades, such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and automatic high-beam headlights.
2021 Dodge Charger Engines
This is definitely the model’s strongest point. You may count on a wide choice of engine options, which starts with a familiar 3.6-liter V6, which is good for about 300 horsepower. The next in the line is a 5.7-liter unit. It is good for about 370 horsepower and we consider this one the most balanced option in the offer. If you want something peppier, there are two pretty capable options in the offer.
The first one is the Scat Pack, which comes with a 6.4-liter V8 and features a max output of around 485 horsepower. Finally, you may also count on the 2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat, which will continue with the monstrous 6.2-liter Supercharged unit. This one is good for about 707 horsepower. With this engine, this large sedan needs just 3.5 seconds to hit 60 mph.
2021 Dodge Charger Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we expect that the 2021 Dodge Charger release date will be scheduled for the end of this year. The price should also remain the same as for the current model, which goes in an extremely wide range. Depending on the version you choose, this sedan will cost you between 30.000 and 70.000 dollars, roughly.
