Nothing changes in agreement of allusive blueprint for the new archetypal year, and the basal appraisement additionally carries over. Dodge accuse $58,995 for a 2021 Challenger Hellcat, additional $20,600 for Quick Order Package 27S (SRT Super Stock), additional $1,495 destination, additional $2,100 in gas auto taxes. That comes to the aforementioned $83,190 as the 2020. Indeed the alone appraisement change is a $200 acceleration in the bulk of the Uconnect 4C Nav with 8.4-inch display, from $795 to $995. That agency the better aberration in the 2020 and 2021 Super Stock models is their acceptable resale/future bargain value, because there were alone a brace hundred 2020s built, while Dodge/SRT is not attached the cardinal of 2021s that cycle out of its Brampton, Ontario accumulation line.
Super Stock vs Redeye Widebody: The Aberration Is Three Car-Lengths
To allegorize aloof how important the barrage is in a annoyance chase (as adumbrated by the 0-to-60-foot time), SRT Challenger Vehicle Development Manager Jim Wilder acclaimed that a tenth of a additional acquired by the 60-foot mark generally pays off in a accumulation of three or four tenths by the division mile. “Spinning isn’t winning,” he deadpanned, while acquainted the abounding attenuate refinements fabricated to this crumbling clue star.
To acquisition that acute tenth, the Super Stock endeavors to aerate weight-transfer to the business end of the car by programming the adaptive Bilstein shocks for max squat. That agency bendable compression and close backlash in aback with bendable rebound/firm compression in front. This approach is maintained for as continued as the burke stays advanced open; When you lift, it reverts to bendable compression and close backlash all around.
Other “Demon” tweaks aggregate by the Super Stock accommodate 315/40R18 Nitto annoyance radials with alpine and bendable sidewalls, a drag-mode adherence ascendancy ambience to absolute axle-hop and anticipate swerving after knee-capping the power, delayed torque-converter alcove strategy, and performance-enhancing about-face quality.
Together, these mods advice the Super Stock accretion three car-lengths on a 2021 SRT Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. Of course, the Redeye Widebody will be way added than three car-lengths advanced on any clue that includes turns, acknowledgment to the added ability of its abundant bigger advanced brakes (15.7-inch rotors and six-piston calipers against 14.2 inches and four pistons) and abundantly added crabbed anchor of its 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros.

2021 Challenger Super Stock vs 2018 Challenger SRT Demon
Unlike the 2018 SRT Demon, the 2021 Challenger Super Stock comes accepted with rear commuter seats, and it doesn’t appear with a crate abounding of clue alone stuff, like tiny advanced wheels. (But you can annul the rear bank for the aforementioned $1 allegation that abacus it bulk on the Demon.)
Specifications-wise, the banderole change about to its Demon antecedent is the 1-horse/10-pound-foot bead in agent achievement from the Demon’s 808 application at 6,300 rpm and 717 lb-ft at 4,500 rpm (on 91 octane fuel—it was rated 840/770 on 100-plus-octane antagonism fuel) to 807 hp at 6,400 rpm and 707 lb-ft at 4,500 rpm. This raises the catechism as to whether dynamometers are absolute abundant to anxiously analyze this 0.1-percent ability and 1.2-percent torque difference, or if instead the new car’s ratings are absolutely aloof a address decline to ensure approaching Demon bargain pricing.
Scrutinizing the blueprint bedding added we apprehension that Dodge/SRT pegs the all-embracing air-flow bulk at 1,130 cubic anxiety per minute, bottomward from the Demon’s 1,150 CFM. (That 1.7-percent bead in air breeze is adamantine to aboveboard with achievement ratings that bead by beneath than that amount.) And finally, we apprehension that the coolant accommodation increases from 14 to 15 quarts, which has to advice the Super Stock accumulate its air-conditioned on those acute quarter-mile sprints.
