America’s Hottest Sedan Reveals Its Price
Beneath the Dodge Charger, you’ll find evidence of America’s oldest sedan, but it’s what’s up front that counts. Traditionally stuffed with as much muscle as Fiat Chrysler (and its predecessors) can muster, the aging Charger gets a testosterone injection for 2021 with the SRT Hellcat Redeye.
Familiar to Challenger aficionados, Redeye guise takes the already overly potent Hellcat and dials up the output — and also the price. If you can be swayed away from the “power dollars” offered on remaining 2020 models, the most powerful of these LX-platform sedans has what it takes to win shallow bragging rights for the buyer.
FCA thanks them for their contribution.
You’ve surely already read about the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, so we’ll only mention that its Demon-ized 6.2-liter V8 gains a hardware upgrade that’s good for 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. That’s a decent yet completely impractical climb from the stock Hellcat (which gains 10 ponies for 2021, taking it to 717 hp and 650 lb-ft), ensuring that no buyer’s teenage offspring will ever have to catch a lobbed fob ahead of their big date.
As expected, this exclusive level of power comes backed up with price. With destination fee factored in, the Charger Redeye clears the $80k mark by 90 bucks, placing it $9,000 north of the SRT Hellcat.
