Dodge Teases 2021 Muscle Car Lineup Before July 2 Debut, Says It Will Have 8,950 HP

Dodge loves cryptic teasers and they’re at it once again as the company has released a new video hinting at their 2021 lineup.

While there isn’t much to see, the video recreates the star-spangled banner with sounds of supercharged Hemi V8 engines. As they explained, “The combination of high-speed revving, upshifting, downshifting and supercharger whines comes together to make a one-of-a-kind national anthem, Dodge performance style.”

The company is keeping details under wraps, but they will introduce their “2021 muscle car lineup” at 12 p.m. ET on Thursday. Dodge went on to suggest the new lineup will have a combined output of 8,950 hp (6,674 kW / 9,074 PS).

The initial teaser isn’t very revealing, but it will be followed by four more. Three videos will be released on July 1st – one each on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – while the fourth and final teaser will be released on all three social media sites on the morning of July 2nd.

Dodge is staying coy on specifics, but the mention of “muscle car lineup” seems to rule out the unveiling of the Durango Hybrid and Durango Hellcat. However, the company could introduce the new Charger Hellcat Redeye Widebody.

Photographed earlier this year, the Charger Hellcat Redeye Widebody is an even more extreme version of the Charger Hellcat Widebody. As the name suggests, the model will have an upgraded 6.2-liter V8 engine that is sourced from the Challenger Hellcat Redeye.

It produces 797 hp (594 kW / 808 PS) and 707 lb-ft (957 Nm) of torque. This enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 203 mph (326 km/h). The model can also run the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds at 131 mph (210 km/h).
