GM rival Stellantis just published a series of photos detailing a pre-production version of the upcoming 2025 Dodge Charger. The new design closely follows the styling first presented by the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept revealed at the 2022 SEMA Show. Although the 2025 Charger will definitely offer an electric powertrain, rumor has it a twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder will be offered as well.
Dodge posted the new images to its various social media feeds with a caption reading “No cameras or recording devices permitted. Pre-production model shown. Available late 2024.”

Although the images are dark and slightly obscured, the new 2025 Dodge Charger design is plain to see. The stance is wide and low, with a long, horizontally oriented lighting treatment across the front end of the vehicle, two doors for ingress and egress, and meaty running gear. The hood is sculpted with a large muscle bulge running down the center, while the rear end incorporates further horizontal styling elements and a small spoiler on the trunk lid.
Also notable is what appears to be either a charging door or possibly even a gas cap lid on the driver’s side rear fender. Which raises an important question – what’s under the hood?
Dodge has already made it clear that the upcoming Charger will cradle an all-electric powertrain, per the Daytona SRT Concept from 2022. Highlights from the concept include all-wheel drive and an 800-volt architecture. However, new reports indicate the 2025 Dodge Charger may offer an internal-combustion option as well, with the most likely candidate being Stellantis’ Hurricane twin-turbo 3.0L inline six-cylinder, per a report from The Drive. In high-output guise, the Hurricane six-cylinder produces 540 horsepower, and although V8 fans will undoubtedly still find that to be a bit of cold comfort, Stellantis is moving forward with the Hurricane as a replacement for the iconic Hemi engine.
Meanwhile, GM remains tightlipped about the next-generation Chevy Camaro, so we’ll have to wait and see how this all plays out. In the meantime, subscribe to GM Authority for more GM competition news, GM business news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
