Dodge is ushering in a new era for the Charger muscle car in 2024 by introducing an electric powertrain. However, following the debut of the Daytona EV model later this year, Dodge is set to bring back gas-powered options to the Charger lineup for 2025.

Yet, don’t anticipate traditional fire-breathing V-8 engines, as the 2025 Charger will feature a pair of inline-six engines.

Gas Makes a Comeback

The gas-powered variant, known as the Charger Sixpack, will offer two iterations of the Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine seen in models like the Jeep Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer, and the refreshed 2025 Ram 1500.

These engines come in two power outputs, with the Charger Sixpack S.O. (“standard output”) generating 420 horsepower, akin to its SUV and truck counterparts.

For muscle car enthusiasts, the Charger Sixpack H.O. (“high output”) is the go-to choice. While the Wagoneer produces 510 horsepower and the Ram delivers 540 hp in its top configuration, the Charger takes it a step further with a whopping 550 horses under the hood.

While torque figures for the gas engines are yet to be unveiled, the Ram’s Hurricane engine churns out 469 pound-feet in standard output and 521 pound-feet in high-output form.

Despite coming standard with all-wheel drive, Charger owners are sure to find ways to indulge in tire-smoking burnouts and donuts.

Though the absence of a V-8 option may disappoint some Dodge loyalists, the automaker emphasizes that the standard output surpasses the horsepower and torque of the outgoing R/T’s 5.7-liter V-8, while the high-output variant outmatches the old Scat Pack’s 6.4-liter V-8.

The Charger Sixpack will be offered in both two-door and four-door configurations, with designs largely resembling those of the EV model. Dodge unveiled a single photo of the internal combustion Charger, highlighting differences in the hood design.

While the Charger Daytona boasts a grille cutout for improved aerodynamics, the Sixpack features dual intakes on either side of the Fratzog logo to facilitate air flow for cooling the twin-turbo engine.

The Charger Sixpack’s front bumper also undergoes slight restyling, with enhanced ventilation and larger intakes at the outer corners. Both the two-door and four-door variants share the same wheelbase, with the latter featuring smaller front doors to accommodate rear-seat access.

Inside, the Charger Sixpack sports a similar cabin to the Daytona model, complete with a 12.3-inch central touchscreen, a 10.3-inch digital gauge cluster (upgradeable to 16.0 inches), customizable ambient lighting, a retro-style “pistol grip” gear shifter, and a heated steering wheel adorned with Charger branding.

Release Details

Production of the Charger Sixpack H.O. and Charger Sixpack S.O. will commence in the first quarter of 2025 at Stellantis’s Windsor Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada. Production for the two-door S.O. and four-door H.O. variants is expected to follow. Further details on the gas-powered Chargers are anticipated to emerge in 2024.
