Dodge is revitalizing the iconic Charger for 2025 by reintroducing gas-powered models alongside its new electric variant. Following the launch of the electric Daytona version later this year, Dodge will unveil the Charger Sixpack, a nod to its muscle car heritage. Unlike the traditional V-8 engines, the Charger Sixpack will feature two versions of the Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine, offering either 420 or an impressive 550 horsepower.

The Charger Sixpack will be available in both two-door and four-door configurations, catering to a range of preferences. Production is set to commence in the first quarter of 2025 at Stellantis’s Windsor Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada.

While some enthusiasts may lament the absence of V-8 engines, Dodge emphasizes the performance prowess of the inline-six powerplants. The high-output variant packs a punch with 550 horsepower, surpassing the output of previous V-8 iterations. Despite the shift in powertrains, Dodge assures that Charger owners will still find ways to enjoy the thrill of driving, with standard all-wheel drive ensuring ample traction.

Visually, the Charger Sixpack retains the Charger Daytona’s design cues, albeit with distinct modifications to accommodate the twin-turbo engine. Notable differences include hood intakes for improved cooling and a restyled front bumper with enhanced aerodynamics.

Inside, the Charger Sixpack boasts a modern cabin with a range of tech features, including a central touchscreen, digital gauge cluster, and customizable ambient lighting. The interior design pays homage to the Charger’s heritage, with retro-inspired elements such as the “pistol grip” gear shifter.

The reintroduction of gas-powered Chargers signals Dodge’s commitment to preserving the essence of the muscle car while embracing advancements in automotive technology. With the Charger Sixpack, Dodge aims to uphold its legacy of high-performance vehicles for enthusiasts to enjoy.
