2025 Dodge Charger: Everything We Know So Far (2024)

The Dodge Charger is a muscle car that has been defined by powerful Hemi V-8 engines since the model debuted in 1966. However, that is going to change drastically with the all-new 2025 Dodge Charger. Not only is the Hemi gone, but the new Charger is going to have an all-electric variant. Dodge promises that despite the move to electric power, the new Charger will still feel and perform like a Dodge muscle car. We won’t know for sure until we can drive it, but this is everything we know so far about the upcoming Charger.

Update, March 5, 2024, 11:00 a.m.: Stellantis has pulled the cover off of the 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona EV, as well as an inline-six powered model slated to arrive for 2025. You can read all about the latest Mopar muscle car offerings at the link provided here, or take a look through our extensive photo gallery.

New Powerplants

The biggest change is of course the switch to electric power. We don’t yet know the details around range and exact power figures, but like the outgoing Charger, the new one will offer various power levels. According to Dodge, the base car will be the Charger 340. The number 340 refers to the amount of power in kilowatts. So, the 340 should produce roughly 455 horsepower. The next step up the power ladder is the 440. That model should have 590 horsepower. The most powerful model will be the SRT Banshee. The Banshee will utilize an 800-volt architecture that could supply up to 900 horsepower to all four wheels. It's also worth noting that the 340 and 440 figures are also a cheeky nod to the 340 and 440 V-8 engines. In the Charger, both were on offer together starting for the 71 model year.

The EV Charger is expected to use a multi-speed transmission called the eRupt. This setup will improve performance and range while also giving the driver the feel of a gear change during acceleration. According to Dodge, it uses "electro-mechanical shifting" via a pistol-grip shifter in the cabin.

There is some good news for internal combustion fans as well. It is likely that alongside the EV Chargers, there will be an ICE variant. This Charger is expected to be powered by the twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder Hurricane engine. A high-output version of this engine currently produces 540 horsepower in the Ram 1500 pickup.

New Platform

The 2025 Dodge Charger will likely ride on Stellantis's upcoming large electric vehicle platform. That platform is reportedly good for up to 500 miles of range. But this is a Dodge Charger we are talking about here. The Charger has always been about maximizing performance over efficiency. So, the actual range figures will likely be far more modest.

New Door Count and Exterior Design

Based on the photos we saw and reported on last month, the new Charger will be a two-door. In recent years, the two-door muscle car from Dodge has been the Challenger. However, back in the 1960s and 1970s two-door Dodge Chargers did exist and Dodge seems set to bring the two-door Charger back. It may take a bit of getting used to, but so will the idea of an electric muscle car.

Aside from the door count, the rest of the exterior is more along the lines of what you would expect. The Charger has a large and menacing look accented by the domed hood. There is a headlight bar that runs the width of the grille. Also upfront is what Dodge calls the R-Wing. This patent-pending front air dam allows air to pass through and improve downforce. Sitting front and center is the brand's new Fratzog logo for performance EVs.

It's unclear if or when a four-door Charger will return.

New Interior

If the 2025 Charger takes much inspiration from the Charger Daytona SRT Concept, one of the highlights will undoubtedly be the pistol-grip shifter. But there are also plenty of other touches to take in. The concept's steering wheel had a flat top and a flat bottom. It also featured a "PowerShot" push-to-pass button for a temporary boost of horsepower for better acceleration. When you press that button, you will appreciate the race-inspired front seats that keep you in place. The concept also had a panoramic glass roof overhead and a carbon fiber floor below. We'll have to wait and see just how many of those features will make it to the production car.

A New Muscle Car Sound?

One of the biggest concerns folks have with an EV performance car is the lack of sound. Dodge understands this and is addressing it with its "Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust." This system uses an amplifier and tuning chamber at the rear of the car to crank out up to 126 decibels worth of engine roar. It is designed to mimic the sound of the 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 Hellcat engine. It's unclear if this will make it to production, but we think it's likely.
