Buckle up Dodge fans, but prepare to wait a little longer to experience the thrill of the brand’s electric muscle car.

The Charger Daytona, originally expected to debut this summer, faces a three-month setback due to electrical issues identified during testing. This means dealership training gets pushed back to August according to internal documents.

While details about the exact problems are undisclosed, Stellantis is dedicated to resolving them before the car’s revised launch window. If all goes smoothly, Dodge expects the first Charger Daytonas to arrive at dealerships this fall.

Initially, only the three-door coupe, a symbol of Dodge’s electric future, will be available. Gearheads craving a gasoline option can look forward to the Charger SIXPACK boasting a potent twin-turbo I6 engine.

Dodge is revamping the iconic Charger with a revolutionary electric twist. The all-new Charger Daytona ditches the gas tank for a high-voltage battery, offered in two exhilarating trims: the R/T and the Scat Pack.

Both deliver earth-shattering performance with over 600 horsepower and an impressive range exceeding 250 miles. The R/T emphasizes efficiency, boasting a targeted range of 317 miles on a single charge.

In contrast, the Scat Pack prioritizes raw power, achieving a heart-pounding 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds thanks to its additional electric muscle. But that’s not all Dodge has in store. They’re introducing the Hurricane engine family, bringing a new era of twin-turbocharged inline-six power to their lineup.

The SIXPACK S.O. packs a powerful 420-horsepower punch, while the SIXPACK H.O. unleashes a monstrous 550-horsepower. These figures closely mirror the options available in the 2025 Ram 1500, hinting at a shared platform.

While the absence of a V8 might cause some purists to grumble, Dodge is undeniably pushing the boundaries of performance with both their electric and gasoline-powered options.
