Following a debut of the muscle sedan in July, Dodge has announced the 2021 Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye starts at $78,595 (plus a $1,495 destination charge). Dealers can place orders starting in September, but deliveries begin until early 2021.
The Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye packs a version of the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 making 797 horsepower (594 kilowatts) and 707 pound-feet (959 Newton-meters) of torque. This ample power lets the sedan reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in the mid-3-second range and reach a top speed of 203 mph (327 kph). The company also says the four-door can cover the quarter-mile in a scant 10.6 seconds. This level of performance is one reason we named this Charger to this year's list of coolest cars.

To be capable of this output, the engine uses parts from the Challenger SRT Demon like stronger internal components and an upgraded valvetrain. It also has the Power Chiller that uses the air conditioner refrigerant to lower intake air temperatures.
The Redeye's drivetrain includes an eight-speed automatic with an upgraded torque converter. It sends the power through a high-strength steel prop shafts and 41-spline half shafts.
The Redeye's body gains a hood with a functional scoop and additional vents. This piece is also on the 2021 Charger Hellcat. It rides 20-inch wheels with Pirelli 305/35ZR20 tires. All-season rubber comes standard, but customers can also opt for three-season tires.
Elsewhere in the Charger lineup, the GT AWD gets standard 20-inch wheels in a Satin Carbon finish, and they're optional on the SXT AWD. Opting for the Blacktop Package changes their color to Black Noise.

Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye
The heart of the new 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye comes from the limited-production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. With the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V-8, the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye cranks out 797 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 707 lb.-ft. torque at 4,500 rpm mated to the quick-shifting TorqueFlite HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles.
Internal changes to the transmission in the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye include an upgraded torque converter. The Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s torque converter delivers an 18 percent increase in torque multiplication when compared with the standard Charger SRT Hellcat.
Like its Demon brethren, the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s engine has 25 major component upgrades, including a larger supercharger, strengthened connecting rods and pistons, high-speed valve train, fuel injection system and improved lubrication system.
The Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is unmistakably Dodge, featuring the aggressive, planted Widebody, standard, with 3.5 inches of added width paired with its wider wheels and tires. New, wider 20-by-11-inch Lightweight Carbon Black wheels ride on wide Pirelli 305/35ZR20 tires. The Pirelli 305/35ZR20 all-season performance tires are standard; three-season tires are also available.
Beyond its menacing stance, the newly designed performance hood on the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye looks even more sinister and provides maximum air intake to the supercharged power plant from the functional hood scoop to boost power. This hood takes full advantage of the SRT Hellcat Redeye’s air intake system and is sealed to the air box.
The front fascia on the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye includes the mail-slot grille, providing for additional cool air to travel into the radiator to help maintain ideal operating temperature even in the hottest conditions. Side sills connect the front and rear fascias to help amplify the integrated design.
Dodge continues to push the limits of the world’s only four-door muscle car with results, including:
World’s fastest mass-produced sedan with a top speed of 203 mph
Quickest production Charger ever with a quarter-mile elapsed time (ET) of 10.6 seconds at 129 mph
Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye runs 1.2 seconds faster than the Charger SRT Hellcat on a 2.1-mile road course, equal to about 7 car lengths after one lap
