Sporty four-door sedans have always been the perfect choice for people who desire everyday fun without compromising too much on the practical side of things. Dodge, one of the main value-oriented contributors to this segment, being least concerned about polar bears and industry shift, comes out yet again with a new Charger Scat Pack Widebody packing in the same Hemi V8 for another year. On that, the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody stays identical to the model it is replacing and does not bring in any sort of updates or addition.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The new Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is a standalone trim in the Charger range with an extra 1.6 inches and 0.6-inches of track on the front and rear axles from its regular bodied equivalent. Except for the slightly tweaked bodywork and wheels, the rest of the mechanicals stay identical to the latter. The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody will start from a base price of $48,425 and at this pricing, will mainly compete against the likes of the BMW M340i, the Kia Stinger GT 2, and the Chrysler 300 S.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Features

Since the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody comes in as a standalone trim, there are no other options to go for other than its regular bodied variant or the outrageous SRT trims. The SRT Hemi V8 gets carried over from its regular variant and makes close to 500 horsepower. The transmission duties are done by an 8HP70 8-speed auto box and come standard with manual steering-mounted paddle shifters. That said, the 2021 Charger Scat Pack Widebody does miss out on driver assistance features, and for this price that should have been a standard inclusion.

That said, Dodge has not compromised when it comes to features on the 2021 Charger Scat Pack Widebody and it pretty much comes loaded with everything you could ask for in a car under 50 grand. For starters, it gets 20-inch Devil’s rims and adaptive dampers all around, and a set of Brembo 6-piston brake calipers. The insides get appointed with basic stuff such as heated power-adjustable seats, 8.4-inch infotainment system, a digital driver multi-information center, leather-wrapped sports steering wheel with heating function, dual-zone climate control, and so on.

 Which trim should you buy?

The2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody comes in a single trim and you are limited to just options and packages on this car. Since the car does not come with any sort of driver assistance features as standard fitment, we suggest you go for the $1,895 technology package which brings in features like emergency braking and lane departure warning.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Engine and Performance

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is one of those cars that has not given up with big bore naturally aspirated V8s. The 6.4L SRT Hemi V8 in the 2021 Charger Scat Pack Widebody is good for around 485 horsepower and a tire-shredding 475 lb-ft of torque. All this power gets sent through an 8-speed automatic transmission through the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential.

With one of the crudest traction control systems around, it is a bit of a chore to get this Dodge going quickly from a standstill. If you have some warm set of tires and a prepped surface, the 2021 Charger Scat Pack Widebody will hit 60 in just 4.2 seconds. Keep on pushing it and the quarter-mile comes up in just 11.8 seconds which is pretty impressive for a car that seats four and daily drives like a charm. The top speed is limited electronically to 175mph, but you won’t be seeing this number with regular all-season tires.

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is the most powerful car here, managing to clock the best numbers when it comes to 0-60 and quarter-mile timings. That said, the BMW and the Kia with significantly less power on tap, do come very close, only losing by a tenth of a second to the 60 mile-an-hour run. But the BMW walks the Kia once you start rolling, putting over half a second between them when passing the quarter-mile marker. The heavy and least powerful Chrysler is the slowest of the bunch and is over a second slower to hit 60mph from a standstill when compared to competitors.

 How well does the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody handle?

 The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is a typical over-the-top American four-door. Although it isn’t as crazy as its Hellcat siblings, 500 ponies feel more than adequate for a family sedan. All this thrust and a reserved steering feel mean that you are pretty much at the mercy of the car here. If you don’t know what you are doing with this car, you are sure to end up in some ditch. That said, the straight-line stability of this machine is commendable thanks to the low stance and tricked-out dampers, making it score high as a highway cruiser.

 Unlike the polished German sedans built to crave corners, the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is more or less a straight-line car. Pushing it through the winding bits is a handful and might be considered far from entertaining for an untrained set of hands. The low stance, wide-body, adaptive dampers, and chunky tires do bring in a whole lot more grip around corners, but even a slighted tap of that gas pedal sweeps the tails clean off the line which is a bit unnerving, to say the least.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Wide body-Braking Performance

 The2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody comes in with some strong brakes from the factory. A pair of mono-block 6-piston Brembo calipers bite down on 15.4-inch slotted and ventilated discs at the front while the rear wheels get 13.8-inch ventilated rotors. The brakes feel solid and have enough bite to bring down this 4,400 machine to a complete halt from 60mph in just 107 feet, which is very impressive for its class. The standard suite of assist features is a part of the package and that includes brake assist, rain-brake support, and knockback mitigation.

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody, presumably sporting the best and biggest hardware, stops rather quickly despite weighing the most. That said, the BMW just performs better owing to the 500 odd pound weight advantage it has over the Dodge, managing to stop in just 103 feet. The Kia Stinger takes over 6- feet more than the Dodge despite weighing much less. The Chrysler, sporting the smallest hardware and weighing in almost identical to the Dodge, takes the most distance to come to a complete stop, measuring in at 119 feet from the point of application.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Fuel Economy

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is not a car that we would label as economical. With a 6.4l V8 pushing close to 500 horses, you are limited to about 19 mpg in the combined cycle. Thankfully the car comes with an 18.5-gallon tank which is arguably one of the biggest in class. With an expected highway economy of around 24 mpg, you should be looking at a maximum range of about 444 miles on this Dodge. The realistic figure that you should expect when driving daily should be around 352 miles on a full tank of gas.

The BMW M340i, coming in with the smallest engine is the most economical of the bunch, returning a very impressive 32mpg on the highways and 26 mpg on a combined cycle. The only thing working against it is its small 15.6-gallon tank and despite this, the BMW manages to come on top in range as well. The other three cars fall almost in the same ballpark when it comes to individual figures, but the Charger Scat Pack Widebody and the Chrysler 300S offer bigger 18.5-gallon tanks which help them extract a better range than the stinger.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Interior

If there is one thing that the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody disappoints us with, then it has got to be its interiors. Unlike the butchy and handsome exterior, the insides of this Dodge have seen better times or let’s say have not aged very gracefully. Even though Dodge has tried to bring up senses with squidgy dashboard materials and metal cabin inserts, the overall layout is just plain crude and unimpressive by today’s standards. That said, Dodge has not left us wanting in the creature comfort department as the car does dome with a lot of standard equipment.

The front seats, even though are mainly upholstered in cloth, get power adjustability and heating function. Both rows offer one of the widest seats in its class measuring at 59.5-inches and 58-inches at the front and rear respectively. The 40.1-inches of rear legroom is also one of the best we have seen. Heated-leather wrapped steering wheel, leather-appointed shifter, dual-zone climate control with rear vents, touchscreen infotainment with premium audio system and a color driver information system are all part of the standard package. Dodge also offers a bunch of additional packages to up the equipment level even more at additional cost from the base specification.

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody and the Chrysler 300S, sharing the same platform, measure almost identical in dimensions and come with the airiest cabin of the bunch. That said, they lose when it comes to cargo room as both measures just above 16 cu-ft., which is the smallest in the segment. The Stinger comes in close with the cabin space but boasts a big 23.3 cu-ft. cargo hold. The BMW M340i, measuring in as the smallest car here, is a bit tight when it comes to usable space and is the least accommodating here. Some standout interior features of the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody;

  • 8.4-inch touch screen infotainment system
  • Color TFT drive information screen
  • 8-way power-adjustable driver seats with 4-way lumbar
  • Heated front seats

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Exterior

The2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody holds all the glory of what an American 4-door should look like. There is nothing subtle going with it and everything screams sheer brute. The wide fender flares and wheel arches make it immediately distinguishable from its regular-bodied equivalent. The body sits almost 5.2-inches off the ground while it gets around 1.6-inches and 0.6-inches of added track at the front and the back from its regular counterpart.

The 20*11-inch Devil’s Rim aluminum wheels are specific and these get custom Rhombi 2-piece center caps. The car comes with Bi-functional Projector headlamps which house its distinctive LED running lights. The fog lamps and the tail lamps are fully LED units. Front and rear solar glass, power adjusting mirrors with heating, automatic headlamps, single-piece rear spoiler, and performance grille are features that come in as standard. The car also comes with a range of trim-specific HEMI and Scat Pack badges to truly differentiate it from the rest of the lineup.

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is the biggest car here by dimension and also weighs the most. This helps it excavate the best cabin space and the availability of top-shelf hardware helps it perform admirably as well. The Chrysler 300S, which shares a similar platform offers almost identical measurements and usable space. The Kia finds the best balance between weight space and practicality while the BMW, being the smallest, does get bottlenecked in this regard. Some standout exterior features of the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody;

  • 20-inch Devil’s Rim aluminum wheels
  • Automatic Halogen projector headlamps with LED running lights

  • Front and rear solar glass
  • Heated and power-adjustable exterior mirrors.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Safety

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody does perform rather well in the crash test conducted by the competent authorities. The 2021 series of Charger did score a 5-star crash rating from the NHTSA while the IIHS awarded it an overall good score except for the driver side overlap and headlamp performance where it scored average and poor respectively. It is disappointing to note that advanced driver assistance features come in as optional packages for this price tag. Some safety features of the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody;

  • 3-mode stability control
  • All-speed traction control
  • ParkSense rear park assist
  • Parkview rear backup camera

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Competition

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody vs 2021 BMW M340i

The 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody with all the added power and performance kit is undeniably the more value-oriented product of the two. It also boasts better cabin and cargo space than the BMW making it more practical as well. But when it comes to comfort, economy, and premium, the BMW M430i just steps up the game. In addition, even though the Widebody Charger is a hoon to drive on its own, it can’t match the mechanical precision that the BMW offers. If you are someone who is going to be spending a lot of time behind the wheel, then believe us, the BMW M340i will be the better option for you because power is useless if you can’t tame it.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody vs 2021 Kia Stinger GT2

The Kia Stinger has been making a name for itself in these years for being one the most balanced sedans out there when it comes to real-world usability and driving engagement. It boasts similar cabin space as the Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody but gets a significantly bigger trunk. It is also slightly more efficient than the Charger in day-to-day usage and is also the one with a better-appointed cabin here. Even though the Charger gets a slight edge in performance, the Stinger hits back with a good handling and sorted chassis. Going down with any one of these would ultimately boil down to preference and requirements, so we’ll let you be the judge here.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody vs 2021 Chrysler 300S V8

The 2021 Chrysler 300 S can be considered as the premier version of the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody albeit at the slight compromise of exclusivity and performance. Both cars are almost identical when it comes to space and practicality with the Chrysler focusing more towards luxury than outright performance. If we were to choose one of these, the Charger Scat Pack Widebody would be our obvious choice given its lower starting prices, better equipment, and more power. Also the kind of street value the Charger fetches over the Chrysler is incomparable.

2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Final Verdict

If you are on the lookout for the most outrageous four-door saloon under 50 grand, then there is no other option than the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody. Even though the big motor is a bit harsh with gas, it rewards you with the most wholesome driving experience accompanied by the sonorous V8. It is practical enough to be a daily driver and is very nimble at slow and medium paces. All this and a package that comes out to be an exceptional value, the 2021 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody should be a no-brainer for an enthusiast.
