The horsepower wars of the past decade are ongoing and have spread across the globe, with cars such as the third-generation 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock at the forefront. All types and classes of cars are pushing for more and more power, and in an age where 600 horsepower looks normal, it takes something like the 2-door Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock coupe to really get the blood boiling. This car is the spiritual successor to the limited-run Demon and uses the tried and tested supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 gas engine. In Super Stock form, you get a massive 807 hp and 707 lb-ft, which results in a quarter-mile run of only 10.5 seconds, partly thanks to a set of standard drag radials and unique track settings. We take a look at why the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is the ultimate US muscle car.
The 2021 Challenger SRT Super Stock hasn't changed significantly since it was introduced a year ago. It picks up the torch of the limited-run Demon and is equipped with numerous features that help the owner on their quest toward getting the best quarter-mile time. Do you see that bright light in the distance? That's the sun reflecting off Vin Diesel's head as he's sprinting to his nearest Dodge dealership.
The Super Stock gets a new black chrome finish for the grille and rear spoiler as part of a more extensive model lineup upgrade. There's also a new memory feature for the driver's seat, steering column, side mirrors, and radio presets.

6.2L Supercharged V8 Gas
The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is a true blue US muscle car that delivers a type of performance that would be considered illegal and wholly irresponsible in most other countries. This drag-ready race car for the road is powered by the same supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 used in the Demon and SRT Hellcat cars. In Super Stock guise, this sports car produces a massive 807 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear-wheel drivetrain via an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the result of all this mechanical wizardry is a vehicle that can do the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.25 seconds and pass the quarter-mile mark in only 10.5 seconds. The drag tires limit the top speed to 168 mph.
SRT Super Stock coupe owners don't buy these cars because they want to hyper mile on cross-country road trips or use them as daily rep cars. They buy them because they are fast as hell in a straight line. That's it. We can't help but admire the Super Stock for its one-track mind. It's good at what it does and pretty bad at the rest, but we can forgive its flaws. Underneath all the tire smoke and supercharger noise, the SRT Super Stock is still a Challenger, which means it's relatively comfortable, comes with enough features to keep most people happy, and offers decent reliability and safety ratings. This is backed by the NHTSA's five-star review of the 2021 Dodge Challenger, which the SRT Super Stock should mirror. A 10.5 second quarter mile isn't particularly fast these days, so be prepared to modify yours as soon as you lay your hands on it.
Because this is the most badass car Dodge builds, we'd get one in the eye-catching Go-Mango paint color and add dual carbon stripes. We'd also get the hood pin kit. The Super Stock is available with the same packages offered on the SRT Hellcat, which means you can get premium features such as a premium sound system, a leather interior, and added safety kit such as blind-spot monitoring. All that stuff adds weight, so we'll take ours bone stock. A minimalist build like this will keep the price of the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock to a comfortable $85,480.
