2025 Dodge Charger Sixpack Sports a 550-HP Twin-Turbo Inline-Six (2024)

  • Internal-combustion powertrains will return to the Dodge Charger for the 2025 model year after the new electric version arrives late this year.
  • The Charger Sixpack will come with two versions of the company's Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six, producing either 420 or 550 horsepower.
  • The gas-powered Charger Sixpack will come with both two and four doors, and production will begin in the first quarter of 2025.

Dodge is reimagining the Charger muscle car for 2024 with a new electric powertrain. But after the Daytona EV version launches at the end of this year, Dodge will also reintroduce gas powertrains to the new Charger lineup. Don't go expecting fire-breathing V-8 motors, however, as the 2025 Charger's internal-combustion powerplants are a pair of inline-six engines.

Gas Is Back

The Charger Sixpack, as the gas-powered variant will be known, will offer two versions of the Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six that has already appeared in the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer as well as the refreshed 2025 Ram 1500. The motor comes with two power outputs, and the Charger Sixpack S.O. (for "standard output") produces the same 420 horsepower as its SUV and truck cousins.

The Charger Sixpack H.O. (for "high output") is beefed up for muscle-car duty. While the Wagoneer produces 510 horsepower and the Ram makes 540 hp in top form, the Charger's oomph is boosted all the way to 550 ponies. Dodge has yet to reveal torque figures for the gas engines, but the Ram's Hurricane engine pumps out 469 pound-feet in standard-output guise and 521 pound-feet in high-output form.

The Charger Sixpack comes standard with all-wheel drive, but we're sure that Charger owners will still manage to find ways to perform ludicrous burnouts and donuts soon enough. The lack of a V-8 option is sure to upset some Dodge diehards, but the automaker is keen to point out that the standard output produces more horsepower and torque than the 5.7-liter V-8 in the outgoing R/T, while the high-output motor outdoes the old Scat Pack's 6.4-liter V-8.

Assertive Styling

The cabin of the Charger Sixpack should mostly mirror that of the electric Charger Daytona pictured here.

Like the electric Charger, the Sixpack will be available as both a two-door and a four-door, with the design largely mirroring that of the EV. Dodge only provided one photo of the internal-combustion Charger, with the most noticeable difference being the hood. Whereas the Charger Daytona features a cutout where the grille would be—allowing air to flow up and over the hood to add downforce—the Sixpack has a different look, with two intakes on either side of the Fratzog logo. We presume these allow air to flow past radiators needed to cool the twin-turbo engine, exiting through the vent on the bulging hood.

The Charger Sixpack's front bumper is also slightly restyled, with a thin upside-down U-shaped vent above the lower grille and what appear to be slightly larger intakes at the outer corners. The two- and four-door models feature the same wheelbase, with the four-door having smaller front doors to allow room for the rear doors that should ease access to the rear seats.

The Charger Sixpack should feature a similar cabin to that of the Charger Daytona. The interior features a standard 12.3-inch central touchscreen as well as a 10.3-inch digital gauge cluster, with the option to upgrade to a 16.0-inch unit. There's also interior ambient lighting with 64 available colors, a retro-referencing "pistol grip" gear shifter, and a not quite circular heated steering wheel. Gas-powered models feature Charger branding on the dashboard.

Release Date

Production of the two-door Charger Sixpack H.O. and four-door Charger Sixpack S.O. will kick off in the first quarter of 2025 at Stellantis's Windsor Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada. Two-door S.O. and four-door H.O. production should follow later. More details on the gas-powered Chargers should arrive at some point in 2024.
