No one outside Dodge, or no one who's talking, is sure how the next-generation Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger twins will differ from the current models
Despite the absence of a Hemi V8 engine turning the rear axle, Motor Trend believes it can fill in some important parts important to enthusiasts.
According to Dodge, half of its vehicle range will be battery-electric by 2030, but the number of cylinders will be unclear.
There is MT report that claims a Stellantis rear-drive platform that can house a V8 will support the Charger/Challenger.
It is known that the STLA Large platform will be used for the upcoming electric muscle twins.
Using STLA architecture, Stellantis showcased a model similar to the Charger that was built in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
Last year, Carscoops reported that Hellcat powertrains and Dodge Challenger and Charger cars would remain in production until 2023.
The rep told Carscoops there would be no ICE trim. So we'll have to wait and see if there are two platforms, or just two versions.
A triple-turbo 3.0-liter Hurricane inline-six with more than 400 horsepower will be standard, while a Hellcat V8 with 800 horsepower will be a minimum.
All four wheels or the rear wheels would receive power from the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.
According to the company's CEO and reps, the Hellcat V8 will either be replaced or the V8 option won't last long.
By next month, Dodge may have more answers about its battery-electric muscle car if the program goes smoothly.
Thank you for keep watching...
