The base variant of the 2021 Dodge Challenger is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine that produces 305 horsepower. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and may drive in RWD mode. Upgrade to the 6.2L V8 engine for 717 horsepower if you want more out of your Challenger. The base four-cylinder engine in the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro is capable of producing 275 horsepower. Upgrade to a V6 engine with up to 335 horsepower or a small-block V8 engine with 455 horsepower and 455 lb.-ft. of torque for even more power. These engines can be paired with one of three transmissions: a 6-speed manual, an 8-speed automatic, or a 10-speed automatic.
Because of its long list of modern safety features, the Challenger received an excellent 4-star crash test safety rating from the NHTSA. Brake assist, available blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross-traffic alert, available adaptive cruise control, available forward-collision aid, and more are among the available features. In addition to these incredible features, the Challenger is built with a lightweight yet robust frame, crumple zones, and airbags all around for optimal safety.
Both models include seating for four individuals, but the Challenger has 110.1 cubic feet of passenger space. With only 93 cubic feet of passenger space, the Camaro might seem claustrophobic. If you need to pack gear for your travels, the Challenger is by far the winner with its 16.2-cubic-foot trunk space versus the Camaro's 9.1 cubic feet.
