"Dodge is better suited for relaxed cruising, with a crescendoing V-8 exhaust note always ready on command."- Caranddriver.com

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack retains the same 6.4L supercharged HEMI V8 motor putting out 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. This motor comes mated to a 6-speed manual. There is also an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission too. As a result, this American muscle car can do the 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds and the quarter-mile in 11.7 seconds. Combined gas mileage of 17 MPG is also on offer. Available for sale at a base MSRP of $39,495, the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is one of the middle trim of the 2021 Challenger series and comes only with minor interior upgrades over the outgoing 2020 model.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack can be had for a lease price of $504 per month with an initial down payment of $1,000 if you have an excellent credit score. The finance options are also quite lucrative, with a $536 per month estimated payment for a downpayment of $4,281, including destination charges and gas guzzler tax. However, this is for a 72-month term. When it comes to the cost of ownership of the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, we are happy to report that the 5-year cost of ownership is around $59,569, which is in the same ballpark as the rivals. The miles per dollar ratio is estimated to be close to 7 too.

"Those looking to maximize the Challenger's potential will want the 6.4-liter V-8, which produces 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque."- Caranddriver.com

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack retains the same 6.4L supercharged V8 motor putting out 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. This motor comes mated to a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission as standard and the RWD drivetrain layout. However, there is also an optional 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, which is sourced from ZF, available for an additional $1,595. A mechanical limited-slip differential is also on offer with the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack.

2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack comes with the 6.4L supercharged HEMI V8 motor

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack also comes unchanged in the suspension front, retaining the Bilstein shock absorbers with front and rear anti-roll bars. The front suspension is a short and long arm setup and the rear is a multi-link setup. However, the handling is not the forte of this American muscle coupe and doesn't offer an enjoyable driving experience through the curvy roads. The steering feel and feedback are mediocre too. Nevertheless, the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is one of the best propositions of the segment in terms of ride quality. At slow speed, it absorbs all the road bumps and at high speeds, the ride remains relatively flat too.

2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Coupe accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds

The outright acceleration on offer from this 6.4L supercharged HEMI V8 motor on offer with the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is quite impressive. The car managed to put out a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 11.7 seconds. The top speed of 168 mph is also one of the best of the segment. With massive 14.2" rotors for the front and 13.8" for the rear, the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack also did a 60-0 mph braking test in just 107 feet. In comparison to the more expensive and powerful 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Coupe, which is available for sale at a base MSRP of $60,695, the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is just 0.4 seconds slower in 0-60 mph, even though the former comes with a more powerful 717 hp supercharged V8 motor.

"Roster of colorful paint options and retro-themed appearance packages of the 2021 Challenger R/T Scat Pack make it stand out from the Camaro and Mustang."- Caranddriver.com

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack looks unchanged from the outgoing 2020 moniker and still gives out the menacing front view offering impeccable road presence, mainly due to the boxy front end with a blacked-out grille and automatic projector LED headlights with LED DRLs. This American muscle coupe also turned out to be the longest and widest offering of the segment, with a length of 197.9" and a width of 75.7", both of which help the moniker to come out as the most spacious offering of the segment.

2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack looks menacing in the front view

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack also remains unchanged in the side and rear profile, retaining the same 20" Gloss Granite Crystal alloy wheels wrapped in 245/45ZR20 performance tires, LED taillights, and the same boxy silhouette, sticking to the classic American muscle car design. The car also comes with powered side mirrors and light-tinted glass too. However, if you wish to personalize your ride, Dodge has got you covered due to the inclusion of many optional packages like T/A Package, 1320 Package, and Dynamic Package. The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack comes in 13 exterior colors as well. However, the curb weight of 4,232 lbs makes it one of the heaviest of the segment, which bogs down the handling quite a bit.

2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack vs 2021 Ford Mustang GT 

The 2021 Ford Mustang GT, which is available for sale at a base MSRP of $35,880, comes out with lower horsepower and torque ratings, which makes it slightly slower in the quarter-mile test. However, the car had a very similar outright acceleration to that of the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, which can be seen from its 0-60 mph time. What makes the 2021 Mustang GT a more impressive offering is the decent list of driver-assistance features on offer coupled with a slightly better put-together interior.

With a base selling price of $38,495, the 2021 Camaro SS comes with a 6.2L naturally aspirated V8 motor putting out lower performance numbers.

The ride quality and gas mileage are decent too. Along with that, the 2021 M240i comes with a better interior and more driver-assistance features as standard as well. However, with a base price tag of $46,350, the 2021 M240i is close to $7,000 more expensive than the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, making it less value for money.

Good blend of daily driving and cruising

Pros - 1) Cushioned ride, 2) Cruising capabilities

Cons - 1) Can't tackle sharp corners speedily

It proves to be a good blend for daily driving and cruising on drag strips. 485HP power is good in terms of city driving as well as cruising. On dragstrips it performs pretty well, but tackling sharp corners is not it's speciality. While cornering you need to control speed effectively or the tail is always eager to stick out of the line. Cushioning is certainly what one enjoys the most. It features 485HP HEMI V8 engine, Brembo 4 piston 4 wheel disc performance brakes, line lock and launch control, UConnect 4C with 8.4 inch touchscreen, heated front seats plus steering wheel, and 20 inch low gloss granite crystal aluminum wheels. Front seats and steering wheel have provision of heating. It also has 8.4 inch touchscreen display fetauring SRT performance pages and Wi-fi hotspot capability, Alpine premium 6 speaker audio system with 276 Watt amplifier. R/T Scatpack angree bee 392 badge on fender, 20 inch low gloss granite crystal aluminum wheels. gloss black sleek grille with integrated striking round headlight design, stain black rear spoiler, and performance hood with heat extractors make this car look agressive and sporty at the same time. Brembo 4 piston 4 wheel disc performance brakes, line lock and launch control, All speed traction control, electronic stability control with roll mitigation, rear parking assist with rear view backup camera, advanced airbags, and front passenger seatbelt alert are some safety features incorporated in this model. It has moderate reliability. Starting at $40,495, it is nicely priced. My experience there was nice.

One hell of a car.

Pros - Outrageous engine,looks and performance

Cons - Gaz guzzling engine,Handfull most of the time.

The only option for allout pure American muscle. I'm finding this car to be nothing less than insane.This v8,even though not charged, has enough grunt to spin the wheels in 3rd gear.Dont even thick about driving this car with the aids off when you've got a six speed manual to shift through while all the drama. 20" wheels,heated mirrors,Driver seat 8 way direction control. The one downside of this car is the interior which looks old and does not have the charm. The looks justify the character of this machine-One badass American coupe with all the muscle power to brag about. Probably safe. Something I'm not sure of. Not something I would label as expensive Good and friendly satff.

The powerful muscle car

Pros - Comfortable ride quality, good suspension and seating comfort

Cons - Poor rear visibility

High on performance + perfect design This muscle car made its mark as a perfect sports car for many years. i have nothing out of expectation. It was good at performance with good steering and suspension abilities. The high speed stability was at the top notch. Both cabin and safety features were good. but the body design makes the rear visibility limited.

True muscle car.

It pushes out to produce maximum horsepower and entertains me a lot. The tires are really sticky and helps the car to hug corners better.
