New Dodge Charger Channels 1970s Vibe With EV and ICE Powertrains
Auto News

The all-new Dodge Charger has arrived with a retro, distinct 1970s vibe in its exterior styling, boasting two powertrains: one firmly rooted in the past and the other targeting a new generation of EV buyers. However, the classic V8 powertrains have been replaced with a twin-turbo, 3.0-litre straight-six, available in two power derivatives: 420hp and 550bhp. Nonetheless, the traditional straight-six powertrain won’t be available until next year.

The Dodge Charger will be offered in two body styles: the classic two-door coupe and a more practical, family-oriented four-door sedan. Its length is roughly similar to that of the BMW 7 Series, and the platform is designed to accommodate both electric vehicle (EV) and internal combustion engine (ICE) powertrain options.

Paired with a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster on the R/T and a 16-inch version on the Scat Pack, it offers a range of options for information display. Standard seating includes cloth and vinyl, with optional upgrades to black or red Nappa leather chairs or sport seats with fixed headrests.

The R/T claims a range of 317 miles, while the Scat Pack offers 260 miles, though it’s worth noting that manufacturer EV range estimates are just that— unqualified estimates.

The Dodge Charger EV features an acoustic exhaust system that replicates the sound of old-school V8s, dubbed the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust Sound. However, it’s essentially a built-in speaker system for sound enhancement.

No word has been released yet on pricing. As a reminder, the Dodge Charger EV will launch first, followed by the ICE version in 2025. Expect to spend sensible money on the gasoline-powered variant. As for the Charger EV, we estimate you’ll need at least $70,000 for the entry-level version.
