2021 Dodge Challenger - Now in Milton
The Dodge Challenger is a classic of the 'muscle car' genre, and has been thrilling drivers since its launch in 1970. The latest 2021 model brings this iconic performance coupe right up to date, and here are the highlights of this venerable model now available at our Milton dealership.
What's New for 2021
The changes for 2021 are mainly cosmetic, with 20" wheels and black chrome exterior accents available on a wider selection of trims. However, the interior has also received a comfort upgrade, with memory facilities on the driver's seat, steering column, and side mirrors.
The 2021 Challenger is instantly recognizable, making few concessions to today's wind tunnel design restrictions. The raised hood inlet announces the car's high-performance intentions from the start, and the confident and aggressive impression is only highlighted by the old-school round headlights and raised, chunky rear. The Challenger is a classic for a reason, and Dodge have wisely stuck largely to the original formula, although tweaked just a little for today's tastes.
The base engine is a hefty V6 making 305 horsepower, passed through an eight-speed automatic transmission to rear-wheel drive. And as powerful as that option is, true performance fans will relish the pair of V8 all-wheel drive powertrains available, with the 5.7L version making 375 horsepower, pushed up to a mammoth 485hp by the top-line 6.4L V8. If you're looking for aggressive muscle-car performance backed up by a throaty V8 roar, the Challenger is a perfect choice.
Every Challenger in the 2021 lineup is fitted with an infotainment touchscreen running Uconnect, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Lower trims' screens are 7", while higher trims bump the size up to 8.4". Fully four different audio options are offered, ranging from the standard six-speaker setup to an 18-speaker Harman Kardon rig pushing out an impressive 900 watts of sound to compete with the V8 roar.
For an old-school coupe that's long on hands-on driving thrills, the 2021 Challenger features a highly respectable range of active safety systems. Key available highlights include: - Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts. - Forward collision warnings. - Adaptive cruise control. - Automatic high beams.
