65 Million Years In The Making – Dodge Charger TRX:

Hellcat Four-Door Sedan, Meets Off-Road-Oriented Technology In Latest Digital Design...

Over the past several years, we have seen a number of digital renderings blending two unique vehicles into one. Some of those vehicles have turned out to be real eye stoppers. But our friend Oscar Vargas (wb.artist20), has created probably one that probably tops the cake. Blending the best attributes of two awesome Hellcat-powered machines, he has created something that looks like its part AMC Eagle and part Local Motors Rally Fighter.

2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. (Dodge).

This “Charger TRX” design allows for the Charger to retain most of its four-door coupe-like design, with the underpinning from the Ram 1500 TRX. The body appears to be much wider than the standard Charger we are accustomed to, judging by how the body sticks out around the fuel door. The Charger carries over its iconic side scallops on its doors, but the widebody fender flares are gone and have been replaced with rigged plastic fender flares to help protect the body from debris.

The front quarter panel has been redesigned as well, to allow for more wheel travel. The Charger TRX adopts many of the Ram TRX’s signature design elements such as its performance hood with heat extractors, air intake, and marker lights. The styling from the front grille, front bumper, and slimmer profile headlamps all take influence from the Ram.

Rated at 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, the supercharged 6.2-liter HELLCAT HEMI V8 engine powers the Ram TRX to a top speed of 118 mph. However, we would like to see this design concept with the more powerful supercharged 6.2-liter HELLCAT HEMI H.O. V8 from the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak under the hood. That would be good enough for 807 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque. 

We would love to see such a vehicle. Something totally different than anything else in the market, that can continue the Dodge performance pedigree. This design shows us that Dodge’s DNA can be used outside the traditional SUV and muscle cars, its lineup has consisted of in recent years.

What's really funny is how nice that front end looks on the Charger. It would be nice on whatever this next gen charger is going to be, especially if it's true that the next gen car is taking alot of styling cues from the '99 Concept. The lights, grille and hood along with a sleeker body is a pretty cool thought, along with the fact that the next gen car is rumored to have an AWD option with this new GME-T6 powertrain. Honestly, there is alot that the new Charger could (and should) take from the TRX but mostly on the interior. the TRX interior is nothing short of Amazing in both design and material and the general layout would look proper in the new Charger. The TRX hood would also look nice along with that front end. What I'm really hoping for is that Dodge continues the Direct Connection performance program for the GME-T6 and really offers some serious street-legal performance upgrades for the next-gen car. Granted I do hope that there is a factory option for an upgraded version of the current SRT active suspension but along with that some true Mopar aftermarket-style parts like sway bars, strut braces, Delrin bushings, control arms, pre-assembled shocks/struts and lowering springs for the active and non-active suspensions as well as performance stage kits. Dodge is no stranger to inline-turbo engines, going back to the SRT4 Neon that had some serious stage kits for it back in the day. It would be nice to see that truly come back for this next gen Charger with the GME-T4 (4XE powertrain) and GME-T6. Along with that, continuing the Jailbreak program would be awesome for the next-gen vehicle as well. Hopefully this new car will have a widebody options that won't look like a factory set of add-on fender flares and that the fenders themselves will actually just be a little wider. Similar to the Dodge Viper. Just a thought.
