A Glance at the New 2021 Charger
At University Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Rome, we’re excited to show off an updated American classic: the 2021 Dodge Charger. Come for a test drive and you’ll know what it’s like to unleash the power of performance:
- The Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® SRT Hellcat V8 roars with 717 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
- Going from 0 to 60 MPH in the low four-second range is the 392 HEMI® V8 that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque.
- The 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 generates 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque while getting up to an EPA-estimated 25 MPG on the highway, thanks to standard MDS Fuel Saver technology.
- The 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 dishes out up to 300 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque with the standard TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission while getting up to an EPA 30 MPG on the highway.
- Among the stopping options are the available four-piston Brembo High-Performance Brakes with red or black calipers, or the six-piston version with red, gunmetal, black, or orange calipers. Advanced Brake Assist increases braking force during emergency stops and Ready Alert Braking preps the brakes for a panic stop when you suddenly release the accelerator. During rainy weather, Rain Brake Support engages when you activate the windshield and helps to keep the brake pads dry by adding minor pressure to the calipers.
- To excite your starts, Launch Control with Launch Assist lets you set the RPM when you hit first gear. If you want to warm the tires before the race, Line Lock holds down the front brakes to spin the rear tires. Helping to cool the engine is the SRT® Power Chiller that can transfer air-conditioning refrigerant from the cabin to the chiller unit, which then goes to the heat exchangers in the supercharger. After your track runs, Race Cooldown runs the intercooler pump and radiator pump to cool the supercharger air cooler after you shut off the engine.

Enhancing the Ride
To enhance the ride for its five passengers, the interior of the 2021 Dodge Charger sports the following amenities.
- The front seats can contain built-in heating and ventilation to keep you comfortable in any season. Available Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control encourages you and your front passenger to define separate environments.
- You can customize the available 8.4-inch touchscreen of the Uconnect® infotainment system to merge your compatible smartphone using Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay®. You can then place calls and have text messages read while you’re still on the highway. The available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot connects you to the Internet.
- Personalize the Driver Information Cluster Display to show performance timers, turn-by-turn navigation, vehicle stats, and any data that you need to maximize your drive.
Shielding the Drive
Shielding you from harm in the 2021 Dodge Charger are the following safety assists.
- Go into slow-speed reverse and the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera reveals the view behind you on the dashboard touchscreen while adding helpful lines to reveal your path.
- When you back into a parking spot, the ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System warns you of obstacles that are behind you.
- If you’re in danger of crashing into the vehicle in front of you, available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning signals you audio-visually and can apply Active Braking to stop your vehicle before an accident happens.
- If your vehicle wanders across the road without an activated turn signal, available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning informs you and guides the vehicle back on the right path using Lane Keep Assist.
- Available Blind Spot Monitoring tells you of any incursions into your blind spot.
- At night, available Automatic High-Beam Headlamps switch automatically between high and low beams depending on the traffic around you.
- If you’re involved in an accident, you and your riders are protected by a solid safety frame that is forged from high-strength steel. The material is also used in the beams that are welded into the side doors to reinforce the vehicle structure and prevent intrusions during side impacts. Inside the cabin, advanced multistage airbags, front seat-mounted pelvic-thoracic side airbags, a driver’s-side knee blocker airbag, and side-curtain airbags protect all riders. Active front seat head restraints help minimize neck and head injuries in certain types of collisions.
