The 2021 Dodge Charger is already out in North America, and while the SRT Hellcat Redeye spec has already been announced, there are other details worth learning about.

The baseline Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat gains a power boost from 717 to 727 metric horsepower (707 -> 717 hp; 527 -> 535 kW) while keeping its maximum torque intact at 881 Newton-meters (650 pound-feet). The V6 3.6 AWD versions boast new 20-inch wheels that come standard in the GT AWD spec and are a paid option in the SXT AWD spec. Prices are unchanged from before: the V6 lineup starts from U.S. $29,995, while the SRT Hellcat packs a $69,995 starting price tag.

The most powerful Redeye version relies on a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 to propel it forward with 808 PS (797 hp; 594 kW) and 959 Nm (707 lb-ft) of torque. Its eight-speed automatic transmission has been reinforced to handle 18% greater torque in all situations. The spec starts from $78,595, which is twice the price of the V8-packing Charger R/T.

In earlier news, it was revealed that the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye needs 3.5 seconds to hit 60 mph (97 km/h) and maxes out at 203 mph (326 km/h). It also covers a quarter of a mile in 10.6 seconds. Exterior modifications include a wider body (+89 mm / +3.5 inches) and lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in 305/35 R20 rubber.
