The biggest news for the 2021 Dodge Charger Pursuit is the addition of the beloved 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission on both powertrains. Unfortunately, it does mean that the Charger Pursuit that features the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with all-wheel-drive (AWD) has been discontinued. The 370 horsepower HEMI is now offered as a rear-wheel-drive only model.

For the units powered by the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which delivers 300 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft of torque, AWD is now standard equipment.  These new powertrain combinations meet or exceed the Charger Pursuit’s previous performance profiles in all key categories of acceleration, braking, and handling. Thanks to the transmission updates, both models are expected to enable increased fuel efficiency for agencies.
