What Dodge Charger Is The Fastest? (List Of All Generations)

We’ve written extensively about the Dodge Charger and many questions that revolve around this car on this blog. Today we’ve gone through several databases and ranked the 35 different Dodge Chargers from all generations based on their top speed. Let’s start with a quick answer:

The 2015 – 2019 SRT Hellcat with a 6.2L supercharged HEMI-V8 is the fastest Dodge Charger ever manufactured based on top speed. It has a top speed of 204 miles per hour (326 km/h), a quarter-mile time of 11.4 seconds, and a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds. The 2021 Hellcat Redeye has the fastest quarter-mile time (10.6 seconds) and the same 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds.

However, that answer doesn’t tell the whole story. Below we’ve made a table in which we have ranked all the 35 different Dodge Chargers produced since the 60’s ranked on their top speed. We did the same thing for the amount of horsepower these cars have. Furthermore, we ranked the last two generations of the Charger based on 0-60 times and quarter-mile times. Read on!

Which Dodge Charger Has The Fastest 0-60 Time?

Besides the top speed, there are other factors to consider when you wonder what the fastest American/Canadian-made Charger is. One of these is the 0 – 60 time. We’ve used the numbers from the previous two generations (2006 – 2010, 2011 – Present) for this data. This is because accurate data for these cars is available, whereas this is not the case for the generations from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. The answer is as follows.

The 2015 – 2019 SRT Hellcat with a 6.2L supercharged HEMI-V8 and the 2021 SRT Hellcat Redeye are the fastest Dodge Chargers with a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds. The current SRT Hellcat Widebody is in third place with a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds.

Which Dodge Charger Has The Fastest Quarter-Mile Time?
