Best of the 2021 Dodge Lineup

Because of its propensity to stuff the biggest engine under the hood of everything in its lineup, we’re inclined to give Dodge a big thumbs up on all of its Hellcat models. We won’t do that, however, because they’re outside of many buyers’ budgets, and to be truthful, they’re a total handful. Only the absolute best drivers will ever be able to competently handle what is almost 800 horsepower, in some cases.

Because of that, our pick for the best of the Dodge lineup lands with the Challenger R/T Scat Pack. It’s far faster than anybody truly needs in a car, and when it’s pushed on a track the more reasonable horsepower numbers make it infinitely more manageable than its fire-breathing Hellcat counterparts.
