The 2021 Dodge Challenger has been consistent with its timeless and classic design. Speaking about the interiors, comfort and cargo, the Challenger has a classic muscle-car interior, with a simple design inspired by its 1970s-era predecessors and comfortable casing. The Dodge is quiet roomier inside, and adults can actually use the back seat. The Challenger’s broad front seats are comfortable for cruising, but even the optional seats, which have added bolstering, don’t hug their occupants the way those in the Camaro or Mustang do. It has an extra seven cubic feet of cargo space in its trunk versus the Camaro. This allows the Challenger to swallow two more bags of luggage than the Camaro. Fold the back seats down and that advantage grows to six. The Challenger has a big center-console bin and a useful spot for a smartphone. Every Challenger has at least a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with smartphone software that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration as standard equipment with Alpine audio systems or the crème-de-la-crème 900-watt, 18-speaker Harman/Kardon setup. It comes in cloth upholstery and 18-inch wheels. The key safety features include blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams. Most trims get an 8.4-inch touchscreen, bigger wheels, and every option we could imagine. Power and performance is the Challenger’s primary optional feature.
The 2021 Dodge Challenger starts at $28,870 in the US, and in the UK, the starting price is £41,883 as of June1, 2021 which is amazing for the powerful car it is.
