Changes to 2021 Dodge Models Push Performance to New Heights

Thom Blackett | Dec 07, 2020

Dodge continues to search for and find homes for its increasingly powerful Hemi V-8 engines, as evidenced by the brand’s 2021 lineup. For those who want to tow nearly 9,000 pounds or reach 145 mph, check out the refreshed Durango’s new Tow N Go Package.

Introduced late in the 2020 model year, the 807-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock returns for 2021, topping the car’s broad selection of trim levels, V-6 and V-8 engines, and an optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. The R/T Scat Pack Widebody is now available with the Shaker and T/A 392 packages, while SRT Hellcat variants are treated to revised badges and base models add standard 20-inch wheels in lieu of last year’s 18s. Memory settings are optional on all 2021 Challengers.

Dodge adds even more muscle to its full-size sedan by way of the new 797-horsepower Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody model. Complementing the supercharged V-8 are upgrades to the transmission, suspension, brakes, and a variety of 20-inch wheels. A 220-mph speedometer is also part of the package, which will come in handy when verifying the Dodge-estimated 203-mph top speed. For the rest of the 2021 Charger lineup, notable changes are limited to new 20-inch wheels for the GT AWD.

Like its siblings, the 2021 Dodge Durango SUV can now be had in SRT Hellcat guise. A 710-horsepower supercharged V-8 sits under the hood and behind a revised front fascia that is part of an overall styling update. The interior is also redesigned, highlighted by new premium materials, an available 10.1-inch display screen, and an enhanced Uconnect 5 infotainment system featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. For the Durango R/T, there is a Tow N Go Package that blends towing capability with performance, while the Citadel returns with more standard features (the separate Citadel Anodized Platinum trim is discontinued).
