Dodge Challenger Crushes Previous Calendar Year’s Competition as Best-Selling Muscle Car of 2021

Posted at Fri, Jan 14, 2022 9:45 AM

The coming years here at Landmark Dodge of Atlanta will certainly be an ideal time to celebrate the gas-powered models that have brought us years of enjoyment, high-octane thrills, and the wonderful sound of roaring engines on balmy nights. The modern-day Challenger has become an amazing version that is everything the classic model was and more, and it also came out on top of the nationwide track-ready pack as the best-selling muscle car in the U.S. for 2021!

Dodge delivered 54,314 Challengers to customers last year, which was a 3% increase over 2020. While both Ford and Dodge suffered their far-reaching effects, we know deep down that it was the fantastic performance and character of the Challenger that ultimately championed to come out as #1. Both the Mustang and Challenger managed to leave the Camaro in the dust, and during 2022 the Never Lift Campaign will no doubt provide the brand even more notoriety.

This campaign will see an exciting combination of new products and giveaways along with a completely reworked performance parts angle of the business. This project includes the very exciting addition of a “Chief Donut Maker” who will draw a lucrative salary of $150,000 for a year to drive a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and be a formidable ambassador for the brand at various events nationwide. The Direct Connection performance and racing parts brand and network of Power Brokers is a revamped reboot of a brand first created in 1974, which rose to become the wildly popular Mopar Performance Parts.

Boasting truly iconic styling and various super-powered versions, all-wheel drive is available as far as cabin space for four adults inside the 2022 model. New for this year’s Challenger are an upgraded alarm system, SRT black package, and the addition of the Hemi Orange appearance package. Billed by Kbb.com as “a national treasure”, things get progressively and stupendously more thrilling as soon as 807 horsepower becomes available in the legendary SRT Super Stock. This is not just a choice of car, but a fully-fledged and fiercely bold life decision!

Blasting from a complete standstill to 60 mph in just 3.25 seconds, the SRT Super Stock claims boisterous bragging rights to a top speed of 168 mph. The SXT and GT versions of the V6 model still enjoy the benefits of 303 horsepower, and the trunk boasts a generous 16.2 cubic feet of space. What’s the best and most celebratory way to enjoy this year’s uncontested champion? Check out the Widebody version, with its flared fenders and extra-wide tires that do a fantastic job of putting emphasis on this car’s muscular aspects.
