    The new Dodge Charger appeared in the first official photos

    According to rumors, the new generation American sports car will be offered not only with several electric powertrains to choose from, but also with a 3.0- liter petrol biturbo engine of the Hurricane family.

    Last December, Stellantis Corporation completed production of the related Dodge Challenger coupe and Dodge Charger sedan, whose roots go back to the first half of the 2000s and the then-existing DaimlerChrysler company. Both gasoline veterans will be replaced by an electric model on the STLA Large modular platform, announced two years ago with the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept. The electric Charger will be offered with a choice of 400- and 800-volt electric powertrains—the top-of-the-line all-wheel drive version is expected to produce around 900 horsepower.

    Meanwhile, in October last year, the American magazine The Drive, citing insiders, reported that the new Charger will also receive a traditional gasoline power plant, namely a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder Hurricane gasoline engine. The Stellantis Corporation has not yet confirmed this information, but it seems quite plausible, because the demand for relatively affordable gasoline sports cars in the United States remains high, it would be stupid to leave this niche to the Ford Mustang – it simply has no direct competitors now, because the GM corporation has also completed production of the sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro and has not yet prepared a replacement for it.

    The other day, the Dodge brand distributed through its social media channels the first pictures of the pre-production Charger of the new generation and promised that it will be available until the end this year, that is, there are only a few months left before the full premiere. The outside of the pre-production car is practically no different from the concept two years ago; there are no photos of the interior yet.

    If the new Charger really does have gasoline versions, then fans of American muscle cars will breathe a sigh of relief. It is unlikely that the decision on such versions was made (if it was) suddenly – it was simply carefully hidden in order to stir up excitement around the farewell Last Call series of the bygone generations of Challenger and Dodge. There is no deception, since all the cars in the Last Call series had V8 HEMI engines, the new Charger definitely won’t have them, but the 3.0-liter Hurricane, according to rumors, has a boost reserve of up to 1000 hp, so it’s unlikely whether customers will be disappointed with the dynamic qualities of the new product.

    The question of the future of the Challenger name remains open: Dodge left photographs of the pre-production coupe without a name, but the concept was called Charger. Dodge probably won't have a new large sedan, or it will, but under a different name – there are many once legendary and now unclaimed names gathering dust in the Dodge archive.
