Dodge Gives Us A Teaser Of Its Future Electrified Charger Daytona Lineup

CES 2023 Video Shows Us What Multiple Trims For The New BEV Could Look Like...

Stellantis has been at the forefront of the headlines at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2023 in Las Vegas. Not only did the automaker unveil two important electrified concept vehicles (Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept & Peugeot Inception Concept), but its CEO was also the keynote speaker.

During his keynote address, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares took the time to highlight most of the automaker’s 14 iconic brands. Among those highlighted was the Dodge brand.

The American performance brand is in a huge transformation right now, as its current muscle car lineup enters its last year in production and it is getting ready to deliver its first units of its all-new C-UV. But Tavares played a short 1-minute, 20-second video during his address that previews what is in the works for the 109-year-old car maker.

At the end of the video, were some digitally rendered versions of Dodge’s new Charger Daytona SRT Concept car. However, this time, we saw the car not only in the two representations which have been shown on the auto show circuit already but the entire 400-volt series of cars with different wheels and color schemes.

Details were already released at this year’s Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, with the announcement of the Direct Connection eStage upgrades that will be available for the next Dodge Charger and Challenger upon their releases.

From the factory, the next-gen 400-volt Dodge Charger and Challenger will feature two available outputs of power. Like its internal combustion engines (ICEs) of the past, Dodge is calling the entry-level output “340” due to its total output of 340 kW (455 horsepower). Its mid-range output cars will feature the “440” designation because of its 440 kW (590 horsepower) output from the factory. In addition to those numbers, Direct Connection will offer two additional performance eStage upgrades for both outputs.

  • 340 Base – 340 kW or 455 horsepower
    • Direct Connection eStage 1 Upgrade – 370 kW or 495 horsepower
    • Direct Connection eStage 2 Upgrade – 400 kW or 535 horsepower
  • 440 Base – 440 kW or 590 horsepower
    • Direct Connection eStage 1 Upgrade – 470 kW or 630 horsepower
    • Direct Connection eStage 2 Upgrade – 500 kW or 670 horsepower

In typical Dodge fashion, they aren’t ready to unveil the high-performance 800-volt Banshee outputs just yet. But our sources have indicated the new 800-volt Banshee eStage 2 upgrade could produce as much as 783 kW (1,050 horsepower). Just enough power to edge out the mighty Tesla Model S Plaid’s 1,020 horsepower rating.

But it is good to see that Dodge is giving us more hints and teaser shots of what to be expected as the muscle car brand dumps its high-horsepower V8s in favor of e-motors.

We will be eagerly awaiting what details Dodge will drop next.

Really just the same stuff as announced from SEMA.
What we do get, though, is color proposals/approved colors. Some look to be carry-overs, along with the Grays Of Thunder and Stryker Red ones, but as I pointed out, we'll be getting a rather well fitting color in the Citron Yella maybe.
Also looks like we get another yellow. Excited for that one too.

I wonder if more actual info comes out for the Dodge Las Vegas event. Yes, it's centered around the big daddy of the Last Call models, but it does look like they're not going to leave the BEV at home for this.
Maybe price ranges or a final update to the concept car that showcases a lower spec and a new exhaust sound since they asked for fans votes for a new one at SEMA, clearly wasn't done in time for CES.

I swear I could see where they photo shopped over the seam for rear door on some of the photos.

Looks like the next Charger is set in stone, but this guy, me, thinks not. Here is my pitch...The Charger will remain a four door sedan, but as Triple alluded to, since this is a ground up undertaking, the new Charger will be sleeker and the sedan will be actually a kind of hatch back with both fastback and SUV attributes. There will be Hurricane powered Chargers and the Banshee will be it’s all electric model, perhaps the only performance muscle car to be so configured initially. Challenger will be completely Hurricane power, with a hybrid assisted AWD super coupe to top the lineup as well as being the basis of the Drag Pack race car.
Let’s see if Mopar Willy.is right on this one.
