If the reports are correct, 2021 Dodge Charger will be the next-gen model. It will arrive with significant upgrades and numerous changes under the shell. However, the upcoming 2022 Dodge Charger will be the next-gen model according to some other and more reliable reports. Dodge is already offering a Widebody version that will be in the offer as well.
Special editions, different trim levels, and so much more are making Charger a very cool model. However, the highlight of this car is its styling and astonishing V8 engine that provides plenty of power. Take a look at our review of the 2022 Charger and what this model could offer once it arrives.
2022 Charger Exterior Redesign
The all-new 2022 Dodge Charger will remain a four-door sedan. This car is getting a complete redesign. However, some things will stay intact, simply because they need to. As you know, Charger is a model that comes with a tradition and is present for almost five decades. Moreover, it rides on its seventh-generation. For that reason, some things will remain traditional as always before. Still, Dodge will work on more modern styling. The goal is to deliver a smoother and sleeker sedan this time.
The aerodynamics are already looking astonishing, and Charger is generally one very attractive sedan. Still, Dodge will provide new exterior features. That includes new headlights, new wheels, and so much more. Some rumors are talking about a new platform as well. The speculated architecture is the same one that underpins Alpha Rome Giulia.
Dodge will most likely provide the same five trim levels to a new-gen 2022 Dodge Charger. The base trim level known as SXT comes with a decent number of standard amenities. That includes keyless entry and ignition, a 7-inch display, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. The GT trim level offers a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen, larger wheels, and sportier suspension.
The Scat Pack version is more powerful, and it offers basically everything as the GT variant. Of course, the highlight is the range-topping SRT Hellcat trim level. This model is using a more potent engine that provides an amazing amount of horsepower and torque. Moreover, Hellcat is equipped with additional mechanical equipment and different premium amenities.
Wide Range of Available Engines
As you just read, each of the four engine options is tied to a specific trim level. A 3.6-liter V6 is the base engine option on a new 2022 Dodge Charger. It provides 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission is standard, and this engine powers the SXT and GT trim levels. The R/T trim is available with a 5.7-liter engine. This V8 is rated at 370 horses and 395 lb-ft of twisting power.
The Scat Pack gets a bigger 6.4-liter V8 that is good for 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, an iconic Charger Hellcat offers a 6.2-liter V8. Thanks to a supercharger, this engine can produce 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
2022 Dodge Charger Price and Release Date
The next-gen 2022 Dodge Charger will go on sale later next year. The most realistic release date is the last quarter of 2021. This five-seat sedan will surely arrive at a slightly higher price. Many experts are predicting the starting price of $35,000. On the other hand, the range-topping SRT Hellcat model will be priced at almost $80,000.
