Once again, the 2021 Dodge Challenger is turning heads. Muscle-car fans are champing at the bit to get behind the wheel of the new Challenger to experience its brawn for themselves. But other 2021 enhancements speak to the softer side of this beast. Dodge added one interior feature that’s incredibly thoughtful for a muscle car. Can the new Challenger marry power, comfort, and convenience?
The Dodge Challenger’s standard feature that drivers will love
The 2021 Dodge Challenger proves it has its eye on driver satisfaction. Not only does it harness over 800 horses with one of several engine options, but it also provides comfort and convenience features in the driver’s seat.
This year’s Challenger now offers driver’s seat memory settings across all of its trims. As part of this thoughtful update, there are also memory functions for the side mirrors, stereo, and steering column, Motor Authority reported in a recent review. It’s this thoughtfulness in available features that makes the new Challenger powerful and comfortable.
The interior makes the 2021 Challenger a sweeter buy
The driver’s seat memory feature isn’t the only perk inside the 2021 Dodge Challenger. This muscle car also offers ample room, including more backseat leg space and trunk space than most coupes on the market. And depending on which of the five trims you select, you can add heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, a Napa leather interior, or a Laguna leather interior.
Other interior features you can add are satellite radio, navigation, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. You can choose between a nine-speaker Alpine system or an 18-speaker Harmon Kardon surround system. Your 2021 Dodge Challenger can also be outfitted with a sunroof, universal garage door opener, and remote start. These amenities make the new Challenger an even sweeter buy this year.
Dodge continues to evolve without compromising muscularity
Dodge continues to improve the Challenger. The manufacturer made a few significant upgrades and enhancements this model year. There’s a new Gold Rush exterior color, and the Challenger GT all-wheel-drive version gets 20-inch black-painted wheels standard. More of the V8 models are available now with the widebody package for an even more aggressive stance.
The Hellcat Redeye and the Super Stock now also offer a sharp-looking chrome finish on the spoiler, side badges, and grille. The Super Stock alone, according to MotorTrend, might be one of the most powerful and fastest muscle cars in the world.
The muscle car that can also be intuitive
You might think a music car can’t be intuitive, but you’d be wrong. U.S. News points out a few of the other intuitive features in the 2021 Dodge Challenger. Standard equipment includes a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, and device pairing with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Plus, Dodge’s Uconnect infotainment system is straightforward to use.
There are also substantial driver assistance features, making this muscle car safer and smarter. The basics — including rear cross-traffic alerts, forward-collision warnings, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, and blind-spot monitoring — are all available.
The 2021 Dodge Challenger proves it can dominate in horsepower and performance without compromising thoughtful and convenient features. It’s a muscle car capable of satisfying the need for speed and creature comforts. Take a test drive to experience firsthand the powerful and, surprisingly, thoughtful new Challenger.
