Dodge Reveals All Details For New 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye
Dodge has seen a staggering increase in recent months with its muscle car sales. Despite the production slowdown and buyers holding off on spending for a great portion of 2020, the rebound is underway. Stellantis (Formerly Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Head of Passenger Car Brands Tim Kuniskis, who overlooks Dodge, has noted the recent retail sales of the Dodge Challenger coupe and Charger sedan are up “significantly” from last July. This is massive news for fans of the Dodge brand and the right now the Dodge Challenger is kicking off its best quarter ever. More good news is coming for shoppers with the arrival of the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye coming out soon this fall.
Breaking Down the Numbers
Looking into the numbers, the Dodge muscle machines are doing well. Dodge has moved more than 60,000 Challengers every year from 2015-2019 compared to only 36,791 in 2010. Keep in mind, this comes despite commercial sales that have slowed down with the number of rental car companies holding off on adding any Challengers due to the long-lasting coronavirus pandemic that has slowed travelers. The Charger is going to receive a boost in sales when its 2021 model year rolls out with its best prize yet. Pricing for the 2021 Dodge Charger lineup was announced and gives customers insight on the outlook of trims, alternatives, and styles that most folks can enjoy regardless of budget. While the bulk of Charger transactions are the base trim and the mid-range trims, the newest Challenger to come into the picture is revamped for the 2021 model year. The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is a stellar example of a muscle car and there’s a reason it’s the most expensive Challenger for a reason.
Step Into the Fiercest Hellcat of the Them All
The 2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye, which rests above the Hellcat Widebody and is the ultimate option for the Charger lineup, will begin at $80,090, including a $1,495 destination charge. Dodge has said they have built the strongest mass-produced sedan in the world thanks to its supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI V8 that’s been tuned to produce 797 horsepower. The massive horsepower is a whopping 80 more horsepower than the base Hellcat. The famed engine is actually derived from the Challenger Demon, this fact will supply any owner with added confidence in opting for the Redeye.
Owners that opt for the Redeye Widebody gain its 3.5 inches of flare to cover the wider wheels and tires. The 2021 model year brings in new 20-inch wheels for the Hellcat and AWD models. As the chart above shows, folks looking for more economical alternatives can go with either the SXT or GT trim, which begin at about the $30,000 mark. For those that are planning on spending more than double that to opt for the higher trims, they have unparalleled performance that starts with the engine.
