R/T Scat Pack 2dr Coupe (6.4L 8cyl 6M)

I traded a 2012 Challenger RT Classic (owned 9 years and 2 months) for a 2021 Scat Pack Challenger. I liked my old car so much that when I thought it was time to get a new one, I did, another Challenger. You will not find a muscle car that is a smooth and quite, yet fast and powerful as a Challenger. Yes, a Mustang and Camaro will be faster, but they will not look as nice or be as comfortable to ride in. You can take a 300 mile road trip in a Challenger and not be tired or beat up at the end of the day. The 8 speed automatic transmission is supposed to be one of the best in the world. I will agree, as it is also found in Mercedes and other high end cars. The car had Brembo brakes and they do a great job. I cannot say enough good things about this car. Dodge is number 1 in initial quality by JD Powers. I can understand why, since Dodge has been building the same car since 2008. They go the bugs out long ago.

We just purchased a brand new 2021 R/T Scat Pack and couldn't be happier! We had been looking for a while since we wanted a manual transmission, which are hard to come by these days. Now a manual is referred to as the "millennial theft deterrent system" since younger people don't know how to drive a stick. The amount of power this 392 packs is amazing! 485 horsepower is nothing to play around with. I've had the backend almost come around on me a couple of times when we first got it. The interior is comfortable and stylish. It is so much fun to drive!

Brawny muscle with road presence

R/T Scat Pack Widebody 2dr Coupe (6.4L 8cyl 6M)
6 of 6 people found this review helpful

Wow, this car is a handful. I have the Scatpack Widebody in Go Mango, and it gets SOME LOOKS! It's big, it's bold, it's powerful. How does it drive? The adaptive suspension is great, although the Track Mode doesn't get as stiff as I would like. The big 305 tires will grip for days, despite the car's 4,250lbs, so it handles nicely. The adjustable steering is perfect because I don't like the stiff, hard feel in Track Mode, so I can dial it back to Street or Sport mode anytime. The steering does give pretty good feedback and feel compared to my 2016 Challenger. The engine is powerful and throaty--it has torque for days and you can enjoy cruising with very little throttle input. The large seats are comfortable and supportive (although they are a little high), and the back seat can actually fit 3 people. Mine has the adaptive cruise, rain-sensing wipers, and upgraded Alpine audio, which isn't as good as the Harman Kardon system, but definitely an improvement over the base 6 speaker setup. My only two complaints: 1. The automatic transmission (ZF 8 speed). It takes WAY too long to engaged between Park and Drive or between Reverse and Drive. Dealer and Mopar say this is "normal, expected behavior." 2. The standard Pirelli PZero All Season tires are NOT all-season. They cannot handle even a moderate amount of rain without making the car feel like it's hydroplaning. Dealer again says there is nothing they can do to help me out. It's a car I look forward to getting into and can't help but look back at. Seeing the bright orange and Shaker scoop coming down the road is really something to see. Get one of these if you are able.

All this and snow capable?

GT 2dr Coupe AWD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
5 of 5 people found this review helpful

I had a 2013 RT Classic for over 5 years and I loved it. However, it was not very drivable in the snow. So, this year, I decided to get a 2021 GT with AWD. I was apprehensive about the V6 but, it does have 300HP after all. Although I’ve only had it a few weeks now, I really love this car. The V6 runs great and has plenty of power for a daily driver. I do love fast acceleration, and this car is plenty fast for a daily driver. (I do not need to do wheelies with a daily driver).
