HEMI Engines Play The Star-Spangled Banner In Dodge 2021 Lineup Teaser

  • New Dodge lineup will be unveiled on July 2 at noon

  • Lineup will combine for a total of 8,950 horsepower

  • Three additional teasers coming before unveil


Dodge will introduced its 2021 lineup of July 2 at noon, but before the big unveil the company will release a series of teasers to get us all excited.

Being that the unveiling of the new lineup will happen two days before the July 4th celebration, Dodge is kicking off its run of teasers with the sound of supercharged HEMI engines playing The Star-Spangled Banner.

Is there anything the HEMI engine can’t do?

“The sound of a screaming supercharged HEMI is so distinctive that this teaser video doesn’t need a single image … if you know, you know,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Tune in July 2 to celebrate with Dodge the pursuit of life, liberty and 8,950 horsepower.”

That last part is also interesting. The current 2020 Dodge/SRT lineup features five models, the Dodge Charger, the Dodge Challenger, the Dodge Journey, the Dodge Durango, and the Dodge Grand Caravan. If the lineup does indeed produce 8,950 horsepower, that would mean an average 1,790 horsepower per model. That’s one quick Grand Caravan.

In all seriousness, the Grand Caravan is not expected to return in 2021. What we’re really curious about is the 2021 Dodge Durango. We just wrote about it and we will gladly update our text if Dodge has something new planned for its three-row SUV.

As for the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, expect more of the same. A lot of power, a lot of versions, and a lot of reasons not to mess around with a good thing.
