  • What is Market Average?

    Based on actual recent transactions other buyers have made, the Market Average shows you the average price others paid for vehicles similar to the one you want, while taking into account that most of these vehicles have different option combinations from the ones you specified.

  • Statewide, Regional, and National Data

    If there are insufficient transactions in your area, we calculate your Market Average by gathering statewide, regional, or national data. Because this data can come from a large geographical area it may not be as representative of your local market.

Best Fullsize Coupes for 2021

The Dodge Challenger Ranked 3rd in TrueCar's Best Fullsize Coupes

2021 Dodge Challenger Model Description

What's New All-new SRT Super Sport trim offers 807 hp; All SRT models receive styling upgrades; Driver memory settings available across the lineup

The Dodge Challenger is best for those seeking a stylish and engaging coupe for everyday driving. The Challenger's large cockpit and usable back seat make it practical enough for small families, while available all-wheel-drive gives drivers four-season enjoyment. Sports cars don't tend to come standard with lots of driver safety features, and the Challenger is no different. Most collision-avoidance technologies are extra-cost options, which dings its value somewhat. Still, the standard and available entertainment tech are easy to use. The R/T and SRT models are for people wanting the same power and acceleration as exotic sports cars at a fraction of the price. Dodge offers many performance upgrades, and the V8-equipped cars are incredibly quick. With the Challenger, Dodge has created a genuine muscle car that can handle modern expectations for comfort and technology while efficiently delivering a unique, even thrilling, driving experience.

Dodge builds the Challenger coupe in seven trims, each with different standard content levels: SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, SRT Hellcat Redeye, and SRT Super Stock. Pricing starts at around $28,500 for the SXT model. It's the entry-level choice but comes with a well-rounded set of comfort and convenience features, as well as a fuel-efficient V6 engine. It includes details like dual-zone climate control, a sport-tuned suspension, alloy wheels, a backup camera, automatic headlamps, cloth-trimmed seats, push-button start, a 6.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. It is available with all-wheel-drive (AWD). The GT has all of the SXT's features, plus sportier seats, a remote engine starter, universal garage door opener, fog lamps, 20-inch wheels, and rear parking sensors. It costs about $31,500, and AWD is optional. The R/T increases the Challenger's sporty driving dynamics significantly, thanks mainly to a Hemi V8 engine. The $35,000 coupe also includes things like a limited-slip differential, a performance exhaust, and a manual transmission. The $40,500 R/T Scat Pack has a more powerful V8 and is available with more aggressive widebody styling. Brembo brakes, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, premium audio, and in-car WiFi are standard. Stepping up to the SRT models adds a supercharged V8 that offers impressive acceleration and speed. These models also come with numerous performance upgrades like larger brakes and an adaptive suspension. Pricing ranges from $59,000-$83,000 before options.

The more pedestrian Challenger models -- the SXT and GT -- use a fuel-efficient yet sporty 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 305 hp and 268 lb.-ft. of torque. The EPA-estimated mileage is 19/30 mpg city/highway. Moving on to the high-performance trims, the R/T employs a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 producing 375 hp and 410 lb.-ft. of torque. The R/T Scat Pack has a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 making 485 hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. The predicted fuel economy for these models is around 14/23 mpg city/highway. The next level is what can be called super-high-performance. These SRT models utilize Dodge's legendary supercharged 6.2-liter V8, making from 717 hp in Hellcat form to 807 hp for the Super Stock model. Of course, with this amount of power from such a large engine, efficiency takes a hit. The SRT trims are expected to return about 13/21 mpg city/highway. Depending on the trim, drivers can choose between eight-speed automatic and six-speed manual transmissions. Paddle shifters are available. Dodge also avails shoppers of all-wheel-drive on the SXT/GT trims, should the standard rear-wheel drivetrain not suffice for snowy climates.

The Challenger's interior is styled very similarly to the Dodge Charger sedan and other Chrysler cars. Each trim level has unique instrument panel badges and interior accents, as well as performance enhancements meant for the included powertrain. This gives the Challenger a personalized appeal that's hard to find in modern sports cars. Meanwhile, all of the driving controls, buttons, and technology features are large, nicely located, and user-friendly. The standard upholstery type is cloth, but the seats and fabrics range greatly depending on which trim one chooses. Houndstooth perforated cloth upholstery is included, while upper trim levels are available with Alcantara and Nappa leather. Optional features include a power sunroof, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and numerous style and performance upgrades. The cabin is built for driving, with the gear shifter and infotainment screen angled towards the driver seat. The touchscreen integrates nicely into the dashboard. A small 6.0-inch display comes standard, but most customers will prefer the larger 8.4-inch screen. No matter which one shoppers choose, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. These apps make connecting a smartphone a breeze. There is plenty of headroom and legroom in the front row and good enough space in the back for adults to ride comfortably on short trips. Few coupes on the market are so spacious inside. Additionally, the Challenger provides 16.2 cubic feet of trunk space. The back seat can fold down to open up additional room, should one want to fit in skis or something else.

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
