Next-Gen 2025 Dodge Charger Teased On Social Media

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept made its debut back in 2022. While the brand has been showcasing the electric coupe at events around the country, there hasn’t been much news about the next-generation Charger until January 12th, when Dodge social media channels displayed several photos of a pre-production, next-generation Charger, serving as the first official preview of the muscle car, which is set to launch later this year.

Dodge’s social media channels published photos of the next-gen Charger you see here, along with the following words:

“No cameras or recording devices permitted. Pre-production model shown. Available late 2024.”

Dodge didn’t provide any further info, but the pictures made it quite clear that we’re looking at a variant of the Dodge Charger SRT Daytona Concept that Dodge has been parading nationwide since its 2022 debut. Though there are certain differences between the concept and the model shown in these photos, the vehicles are still very similar overall.

The pre-production Dodge Charger pictured here features a front fascia that’s very similar to that of the concept. LED trim surrounds the grille, while a Fratzog badge is placed front and center. Additionally, one of the photos appears to show a light shining down behind the grille from the front of the hood, potentially indicating that the R-Wing aerodynamic design from the Daytona SRT Concept will make its way to the production car.

Other noteworthy elements include a bulging hood and what appears to be a large grille at the bottom of the front fascia, suggesting that the next-gen Charger will be what we endearingly refer to as a “mouth breather.”

The shape of the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept really comes through when looking at the vehicle from the side. With the exception of some minor surface development details, we see the overall design language carry over almost unchanged from the concept, including the A-pillar, roofline, muscular C-pillar and associated hip lines, pedestal-mounted side mirrors, and flush door handles. The wheels are a set of dual five-spokes finished in black.

We were only treated to a single shot of the rear end. Regardless, here we can see the pre-production Dodge Charger feature a full-width spoiler (with a wide mount running the width of the trunk lid) along with full-width tail lights. None of the photos released by Dodge show the tail lights in their illuminated state, making it impossible (for now) to see whether they resemble the signatures seen on the SRT Daytona Concept.

Beyond that, the entire rear end is very similar to the outgoing Charger. One neat detail is the word “Daytona” spelled out between the rear reflectors on the rear bumper. Incidentally, there aren’t any visible exhaust outlets at the rear end, further indicating the car’s battery electric nature and its Fratzonic exhaust (see video below).

The entire vehicle retains some of the muscular aesthetic from the current Charger, while also smoothing out a lot of edges with curves. It will take a lot more than these few photos for us to decide if we like the design of this next-gen 2025 Dodge Charger, which is set to launch in late 2024.
