2024 and 2025 Dodge Charger: What You Need to Know

This morning, Dodge introduced the next generation of the Charger – both a two-door coupe and a four-door sedan, with both battery electric and gasoline-powered drivetrain options. There is a great deal of information, with four drivetrain options across two body styles, and we will go into detail on all of them; but having gotten the information from the media debut last week, we have put together this piece to answer the most important questions on the new Dodge Charger.

The Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack (shown in Bludicrous) and Dodge Charger Daytona R/T (shown in Peel Out) represent the first–ever all-electric vehicles from the Dodge brand.

The 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Coupe

The next generation Dodge Charger Daytona will debut as a two-door coupe BEV for the 2024 model year with production beginning in “mid-2024”. The 2024 Charger Daytona will be offered in two 400V trim levels – R/T and Scat Pack – and they will each come with a standard Direct Connection upgrade kit for the first model year.

The Charger Daytona R/T will come with the Direct Connection Stage 1 kit, yielding 496 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. The 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack will come standard with the Direct Connection Stage 2 kit, with a hefty 670 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. A dual-motor all-wheel-drive system is standard on both the R/T and Scat Pack.

The 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona is likely the replacement for the Dodge Challenger; it uses the body code leaked over a year ago for the Challenger, fits the same niche, and has the same powertrains. Dodge may have wanted to benefit from combining the sales figures for its previously-separate big sedan and coupe.

The 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T has a range of 317 miles on a full charge; more importantly, it will sprint from a stop to 60mph in 4.7 seconds, while covering the quarter mile in 13.1 seconds. These figures make it more than a match for the original Charger Daytonas.

The Charger Daytona Scat Pack has a range of 260 miles, rocketing from a stop to 60 in 3.3 seconds and stopping the quarter mile timer with an 11.5. The BEV R/T has a top speed of 137 miles per hour while the Scat Pack has a slightly lower top speed of 134.

The 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack can be upgraded with the optional Track Pack, which adds unique wheels measuring 20×11 up front and 20×11.5 out back, 305mm-wide front tires and 325mm-wire rear tires, dual-valve adaptive suspension and gigantic 16.1-inch front and rear Brembo brake rotors. Those are the biggest rear wheels, the biggest rear tires and the biggest brakes ever sold on a Dodge Charger. The huge Track Pack brakes will be standard on the 2024 Charger Daytona Scat Pack; Dodge has packed a ton of performance for the first year of the new electric muscle car.

“The electrified 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack delivers Charger Hellcat Redeye levels of performance and announces its presence through the world’s first Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust, while Hurricane engine-powered Dodge Charger SIXPACK models will give the Brotherhood of Muscle a gas option that produces better horsepower and torque numbers than the outgoing 5.7 and 6.4-liter HEMI engines,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “The next generation of Dodge muscle has arrived.”

The Return of the Sedan

After the next generation Dodge Charger is introduced as a two-door coupe in mid-2024, the four-door sedan version of the new Charger will debut during the first quarter of 2025. The Charger sedan is expected to share the coupe’s trim levels, drivetrains, performance, and range; they could vary once they come to production. Interior and exterior design should be more or less identical, except with a bit more rear seating space and easier rear seating access for the four-door models.

The Gasoline-Powered Charger

Also in 2025 Q1, the Dodge Charger Six Pack will debut with two different hurricane engines – 420hp base model and 550hp high output model. All-wheel-drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission are standard on both the standard and high output model, and the Six Pack model will be offered in both two-door coupe and four-door sedan form. (No Charger Six Pack images are available yet, so we have included an interior shot of the Daytona coupe below.) Historically, Dodge named its triple-carburetor package the Six Pack—it had six fuel-air openings.

The SRT Banshee

We don’t have any new information on the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee in production form, but Tim Kuniskis confirmed at the media preview that the highest performance BEV Charger will arrive “later in 2025.” Based on his other comments, we expect that the production Dodge Charger SRT Banshee will look nearly identical to the concept car; and based on comments made at the original debut of the next generation Charger, we expect that the SRT Banshee power levels will begin where the Scat Pack leaves off. The Stage 2 Scat Pack generates 670 horsepower from a 400V system, so we expect that the Banshee will start in the 700 horsepower range with the 800V system – potentially getting up into the thousand-horsepower range with the Direct Connection Stage 2 upgrade package.
