When you own a Canadian/American-made Dodge Challenger, there will most likely also be moments where you need to know how much the car weighs. Therefore, in this blog, we’ve compiled a list of all the 2006 – 2021 trim levels and models with their correct weight in pounds and the gross vehicle weight. However, let’s start with a short answer.

The 2008 – 2021 Dodge Challenger has a curb weight of 3,719 – 4,190 pounds for all trim levels, excluding the Scat Pack, Hellcat, and Demon. A Challenger Scat Pack weighs 4,082 – 4,233 pounds; a Challenger Hellcat is 4,428 – 4,449 pounds, and a Challenger Demon is 4,280 pounds.

However, this doesn’t tell the full story. In the next subheading, we’ve outlined the base weight of the Dodge Challenger with the gross vehicle weight and added some useful notes. This way, you’ll surely find the weight of the Dodge Challenger. Read on!

Weight Per Model Year And Trim Level

In the table below, we’ve outlined the curb weight and the gross vehicle weight of the Dodge Challenger divided by model year and trim level. The curb weight is the vehicle’s empty weight; the gross vehicle weight is the maximum weight the car can carry, including passengers, baggage, and a trailer. Furthermore, it’s good to know that we included the Scat Pack’s, Hellcats, and the Demon.

What Is The Weight Of A Dodge Challenger Compared To It’s Competitors?

Finally, we feel it’s a good idea to compare the weight of the Dodge Challenger with its competitors to get a feel for how light or heavy this car really is. For this, we chose its four main 2021 competitors.

We can immediately see in the table below that the Challenger’s minimum curb weight is by far the heaviest of them all. Only the Stinger GT comes close, but with almost 4,000 pounds, the Challenger is no lightweight.

The same can be said for the maximum curb weight. The Challenger is by far the heaviest. However, that’s also because there’s a Hellcat and Demon included here, which are somewhat special cars. However, without the Hellcat and Demon, the Charger would still come close to 4,300 pounds, which is heavier than the competition.
