The 2022 Dodge Magnum could happen after all. The Magnum nameplate was far from successful in the United States. This model firstly arrived as a coupe, but after a couple of model years, this model was discontinued. The very same variant lived in Mexico for a little longer. The second-gen Magnum had the same faith because the whole planet was after handsome crossovers, SUVs, and pickup trucks.
Now, some reports are strongly suggesting the return of the Magnum model. So far, we have interesting rendering images. Moreover, we could assume a potent engine under the hood. However, there are a couple of possible candidates. Anyway, it will be interesting to see exotic and handsome Magnum in today’s world, where cars are not so popular buying options.
The first renderings of the 2022 Dodge Magnum are looking very exciting and promising. Clearly, Magnum is based on the Dodge Charger in these photos. This makes perfect sense and two models could easily share the same underpinnings. You can find a lot of similarities between Magnum and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. We like the widebody stance with the station wagon styling cues.
The result is a very sporty model with a hot design and a very athletic attitude. New Magnum won’t share a lot of things with the previous generation. Besides attractive looks, this Magnum will offer a beefier suspension and improved aerodynamics.
2022 Magnum Specs
As we already said, there won’t be so many engine options for the 2022 Dodge Magnum. Because of that, Magnum will probably deploy one of the existing brand’s engines. Developing a new powerplant is not an option for Stellantis. Of course, a 707-hp supercharged Hemi V8 is one of the possibilities. No matter what happens in the future, Magnum will provide a lot of power. Another, and more likely possibility is the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine with 485 horsepower.
Even with this output, Magnum will become one of the most powerful station wagons in the world. Numerous manufacturers are offering fast station wagons and cars in general. Audi RS6 Avant is one fine example. Mercedes-AMG E63 S is another potent model that could compete with Dodge Magnum.
On the inside, the new 2022 Dodge Magnum will look very modern. However, Dodge could deliver a somewhat traditional interior design with a simple control layout. We don’t expect to see massive displays and innovative solutions. However, comfort will be admirable and Magnum will surely introduce a lot of safety aids.
The cabin won’t provide much space, but a two-row seating layout and five seats are what everyone expects to see. The next-gen Uconnect infotainment system is a must, along with the Nappa leather upholstery. The interior will be full of sportiness, red contrast stitching, and completely new and more supportive seats with better grip.
2022 Dodge Magnum Release Date, Price
Predicting the price of the 2022 Dodge Magnum is impossible at the moment. However, Magnum won’t be an affordable station wagon and it will surely cost above $50,000. According to various speculations, Dodge could return its famous nameplate in the second half of 2022.
