Dodge has built the last Charger with a V8 engine ever

The top model Hemi Charger is dead. Now only the six-cylinder 'Hurricane' remains. However, the model survives alongside the electric car.

Unlike the Challenger, Dodge doesn't kill the Charger. Not even if the brand has just lifted the lid on the Charger Daytona electric car.

But one thing the world must do without for the future. It is the end of large V8 engines. In fact, it is so over that this kind of thing will never come again. At least not in a Dodge Charger.

However, this does not mean that it is completely over with combustion in the Charger. For the American car brand, production of the model continues with a 3-liter inline six.

Dodge states this in a press release .

The engine they also call Hurricane and is found in everything from Jeep models to the pickup RAM 1500. In the surviving Dodge Charger, the engine produces from 420 to 550 horsepower. It's not exactly Hellcat muscle.

But that's more horsepower than has ever been available in a Charger with a non-supercharged Hemi engine.

Then there is the electric version. And if you go up in horsepower, this is where the savings should be put.

From the start, the electric car flies off with 700 horsepower and a speed that, when going straight, can match the old Hellcat. That's what Dodge says.

Having said that, Dodge's bid for a 'muscular' electric car has already received fierce criticism. Among other things, because the brand will equip the car with an artificial engine sound.

In fact, the Americans have gone so far as to take out a patent for a solution that is not just a series of loudspeakers in and under the car. Read more about it here .
