As teased by the genius Dodge marketing team for a little while now, a wild new lineup is on its way from FCA, to make the Dodge an even. more commanding brand in the industry. Mopar and FCA can be thanked for broadening the modern muscle car playing field with the Challenger and Charger lines, and even surprises like the Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk, and their latest release proves they aren’t done. They have introduces three new variants of existing models, including roping in their popular full-size SUV.
Up first is the 710-horsepower 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat, powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine paired with the quick-shifting TorqueFlite 8HP95 eight-speed automatic transmission – all while maintaining third-row seating. According to Dodge, this one year only edition of their SUV will runs 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.5 seconds, has a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) certified quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.5 seconds, and a top speed of 180 mph.
The Durango isn’t sacrificing anything to pickup the extra power either, according to Dodge, “No SUV in the world can tow more or carry more with a faster quarter-mile time than the Durango SRT Hellcat. Durango SRT Hellcat, SRT 392 and R/T Tow N Go models outhaul every full-size, three-row SUV on the road with best-in-class towing capability of 8,700 pounds.”
Now on to some meat, the 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock is Dodge’s newest drag racing hero, rocking 807-horsepower from a supercharged from a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® high-output V8.

With drag-focused modes and track options, this Challenger is out for blood.
This might be the best for last, depending on who you ask, but the new ‘Demon-possessed’ 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the most impressive production four-door sedan to roam the streets. The 797-horsepower Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the most powerful and quickest mass-produced sedan, ever. With plenty of room to haul the kids around with the full backseat, the new Redeye Charger can cover the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 129 mph, and has a top speed of 203 mph.
