FCA Canada: 2021 Dodge Challenger / Challenger SRT Fact Sheet

Windsor, Ontario September 1, 2020 - The Dodge Challenger is the world’s quickest, fastest and most powerful muscle car. While the record-setting Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was and will remain a one-year, limited-production build, the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is born from its successes and, for 2021 model year, is the halo of the Challenger lineup, out-performing the competition in the modern horsepower wars.
 
The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is powered by the same supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI® high-output V-8 that powers the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with a revised powertrain calibration that increases rated power output to an 807 horsepower.
 
To make this the world’s newest ultimate drag-racing muscle car, the Challenger SRT Super Stock features:
  • A uniquely tuned Bilstein high-performance adaptive damping suspension
  • Brembo four-piston high-performance brakes
  • 18-by-11-inch aluminum wheels in Low Gloss Granite finish
  • Sticky 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R street-legal drag radials at all four corners
The SRT Super Stock’s revised powertrain rating, combined with its larger, stickier standard Nitto drag radials combine to make the Challenger SRT Super Stock do what it does better than any other muscle car on the market: run 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.25 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in an elapsed time (ET) of 10.5 seconds, making it the world’s quickest and most powerful muscle car.
 
With the industry’s most powerful and capable muscle car lineup, the Dodge Challenger delivers nine distinct model options from the most powerful and fastest muscle car – the 807-horsepower SRT Super Stock – to 303-horsepower, V-6 efficiency and class-exclusive all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability on SXT and GT models. The 2021 Dodge Challenger offers a full range of engine options, including the award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 on SXT, SXT AWD, GT and GT AWD models, the legendary 5.7-litre HEMI V-8 on R/T models, the naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V-8 on Scat Pack 392 models, the supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V-8 on SRT Hellcat and a supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI high-output V-8 on SRT Hellcat Redeye and new SRT Super Stock.
 
The Dodge Challenger is unrivaled when it comes to sheer horsepower, performance options and packages, all-weather capability and overall interior roominess. The Challenger is a true GT car, and its heritage design, unmatched power and everyday livability make this authentic yet modern muscle car even more popular in today’s golden age of muscle as it was back in 1970 and 1971.
