Photos Surface of Next-Gen Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Body Shells, Fueling Speculation
It seems that the much-anticipated next-generation Dodge Charger is already generating plenty of excitement. Recently, a series of photos depicting what appear to be three body shells of an early pre-production Charger Daytona SRT coupe have been making the rounds on internet forums and social media.
While there is limited information available about these images, there are a few noticeable details that have caught the attention of car enthusiasts. First, unlike the clean design of the Charger Daytona SRT concept, these body shells feature a B-pillar. Additionally, there seems to be a transmission tunnel, although it’s not entirely confirmed. On the driver’s side, there is a feature that resembles a fuel door, but it could very well be a charging port for an electric version of the vehicle.
Dodge has previously announced its plans to release a battery-powered version of the Charger, as it aims to transition toward electric vehicles. However, the company has also acknowledged the possibility of equipping the new Charger with internal combustion engines in the future. Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis stated, “I can put an ICE engine in there. Doesn’t mean we’re going to. We’re certainly not launching with anything like that. We’re launching with full battery electric.”
Despite Dodge’s commitment to electric power, these photos have raised questions about the potential direction of the next-generation Charger. Could it be a mix of both electric and combustion power plants? Or are these body shells simply part of an internal testing phase?
The silhouette of these body shells is undeniably reminiscent of the Charger Daytona concept car, albeit with some subtle differences. If this is indeed the next muscle car from Dodge, it will undoubtedly have big shoes to fill, regardless of its powertrain.
As of now, all we can do is speculate about the significance of these photos. The authenticity of the images has not been independently verified, leaving room for further interpretation. Only time will tell if these body shells truly belong to the highly anticipated next-generation Dodge Charger or if they are associated with another project, such as a SEMA concept vehicle.
In any case, car enthusiasts and Dodge fans alike eagerly await more information and official announcements regarding the future of the Charger. Will it be a fully electric powerhouse, or will there be surprises in store? Only Dodge holds the answers, and the excitement continues to build.
