2021 Dodge Challenger vs Chevrolet Camaro

There are many 2-door and 4-door coupes on the market today, but few possess the power and speed necessary to earn the title of a true muscle car. This segment is naturally competitive, with every vehicle vying for the top spot in their customers' eyes. If you're shopping for a brand-new muscle car, we know how important it is to find one that delivers on speed and acceleration, while providing a comfortable and stylish interior. You also want to factor in safety features, performance equipment, and exterior design as well. With so many elements to consider, it's easy to lose sight of which model is right for you! To help provide some clarity, we'll be taking an in-depth look at two strong contenders, the 2021 Dodge Challenger, and the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro. Continue reading below to see which muscle car will be victorious!

2021 Dodge Challenger Power & Handling

The 2021 Dodge Challenger lineup includes seven trim levels with almost as many engines. In total, there are 6 possible engine options ranging from powerful to downright extraordinary. The popular R/T trim features the 5.7-liter V8 which offers up to 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Jumping ahead, the SRT Hellcat utilizes the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with its 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. New for 2021, the SRT Super Stock trim tops out the list with its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 specially tuned to produce a staggering 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque! In terms of performance, the Challenger can race from 0-60 mph in an incredible 3.25 seconds, with a quarter-mile run of just 10.5 seconds at 131 mph!

2021 Chevrolet Camaro Power & Handling

The 2021 Chevy Camaro lineup features 8 models, with just 4 engine options for the bunch. The base level is the 2-liter turbocharged inline-4 at 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, followed by the 3.6-liter V6 offering 335 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque. Next comes the 6.2-liter V8 at 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque, and rounding out the list is the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 providing 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Normally these numbers would sound highly impressive, but in the world of the Dodge Challenger, they don't come close to matching the power of the Hellcat, Hellcat Redeye, or Super Stock. The 2021 Camaro can accelerate from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, and complete its quarter-mile in 12.5 seconds. Again, both these figures trail behind the Dodge Challenger.

2021 Dodge Challenger Features & Design

The Dodge Challenger emulates the classic styling of a 70's era muscle car in a whole new way. It combines its vintage appeal with new technology and eye-catching colors and designs for a perfectly retro feel that fits seamlessly into the modern age. The Challenger offers an extensive list of colorways, as well as badges, accent stripes, and functional hood designs to let you fully customize its appearance. There's also a Widebody configuration available to certain trims that lends the Challenger an imposing stance, as well as wider Nitto drag radials for increased traction. Inside, the Challenger seats up to five, with best-in-class passenger space and a generous rear cargo area. Its tech features include the Uconnect 4 infotainment touchscreen with smartphone integration, a 6-speaker audio system, and rear parking sensors.

2021 Chevrolet Camaro Features & Design

The Chevrolet Camaro brings a sporty feel, with a body design that has polarized customers since its update just a few years back. Chevrolet tried to maintain as much of the classic 1969 feel as possible, but the new front fascia design still doesn't sit quite right with some of their audience. Inside, the Camaro seats just four, with a noticeably tight seating area for both the front and rear. Some of the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro's standard features include a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a six-speaker audio system, and an on-board 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. New this year comes a Wild Cherry appearance package which adds red accents both inside and out.

Conclusion:

These two muscle cars both seek to provide blistering speeds, eye-popping designs, and plenty of tech and performance equipment. However, the one that we feel truly delivers these offerings is the 2021 Dodge Challenger. Its engine options are unmatched by competitors, and there's something special about its modern-meets-retro design.
