Bold, Powerful, and Unstoppable: The 2025 Dodge Charger Sixpack Dominates the Road

2025 Dodge Charger: With the 2025 Dodge Charger Daytona, Dodge may be moving towards electrification, but internal combustion enthusiasts won’t be left disappointed. They’ll just need to wait, as Dodge has stated that the Dodge Charger Sixpack, an additional ICE variant, will arrive after its brand-new electric muscle vehicle.

The 2025 Dodge Charger Daytona is scheduled to go into production in the middle of 2024; the “Daytona” brand will be reserved for electric variants of the muscle vehicle. With up to 670 horsepower and a 3.3-second 0-60 mph pace, depending on the trim, it will outperform even the current Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which we rode for the first time back in 2019. Dodge is fully aware, though, that not everyone is ready or even able to switch to electric vehicles just yet.

One advantage of the underlying STLA Large platform, which was intended to be configurable for internal combustion, electric, or hybrid drivetrains from the beginning, is that it can provide an alternative. When paired with the most recent Hurricane petrol engines from Stellantis, it means a more conventional heart for a next-generation muscle vehicle. However, don’t search for a V8 HEMI.

Even with 550 horsepower, the EV is still more powerful

The 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six petrol engine that we recently drove in the 2025 Ram 1500 will be used in two distinct configurations for the 2025 Dodge Charger Sixpack variants, known as the S.O. (Standard Output) and H.O. (High Output). Sixpack S.O. and Sixpack H.O. versions will produce 420 and 550 horsepower, respectively. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed automated gearbox will come standard on each.

Dodge will offer the Charger Sixpack in two-door and four-door configurations, similar to the electric Charger Daytona. They will initially appear to be quite similar to the EV as well, but there will be more distinctions than just badging. The Sixpack will likely feature the illuminated “Fratzog” emblems and the same body-spanning LED light bars as the Daytona, but it won’t have the R-Wing pass-through cutaway used by the Daytona for downforce at the front of the hood.

A rear liftgate will be featured on both the two-door and four-door models to optimize cargo capacity. Naturally, they won’t have the front trunk; when you lift the hood, all that’s visible is the Hurricane engine. Additionally, Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge, states that you will only get six cylinders.

Don’t wait for a V8

The Dodge CEO declared, “We don’t have a V8 in the plan,” last month at a Charger pre-launch event. “We adore live performances. We enjoy moving quickly. The plan does not include a V8.”

The same is true for hybrids, at least for the time being. Though Kuniskis notes that there are currently no plans to provide such a system in the Charger, the STLA Large platform enables gas-electric mashups, including the range extender that Ram will employ in the planned 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger.

The 2025 Dodge Charger Sixpack’s ability to disconnect the front axle and direct full engine power to the rear wheels gives it an advantage over its Daytona EV sister. In this approach, even while AWD offers improved stability on wet asphalt, the new car may nonetheless transmit some of the familiar fun of the existing Challenger RWD.

When the muscle vehicles go on sale, the Charger Sixpack’s S.O. and H.O. pricing will be announced; according to Dodge, production is expected to begin in Q1 2025.
