The Dodge Charger is one of the best sports cars of all time. However, most people would refer to it as a muscle car. This is a solid option for people who want a fast and powerful option without sacrificing space. Now, the 2024 Dodge Charger has been unveiled, and it's more than most thought it would be. Of course, the emphasis is on the all-electric models. However, there is still a gas-powered option, which is much like the 2023 Dodge Charger.

Here's a look into the 2024 Dodge Charger.

The 2024 Dodge Charger is among the best sports cars for performance

People who go for the 2024 Dodge Charger will have options. The Daytona R/T and Scat Pack trims of the iconic muscle car will be all-electric and will use two electric motors. According to Edmunds, the base trim has a maximum output of 456 horsepower. It makes 496 horsepower with a temporary boost. This version of the 2024 Dodge Charger can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in only 4.7 seconds.

The Daytona Scat Pack trim of the all-electric Dodge Charger is much more powerful. This one has a maximum output of 630 horsepower. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a stellar 3.3 seconds. So far, this model seems like an improvement over the 2023 Dodge Charger.

Dodge did confirm that there will be a gas-powered version of the Charger. This is a bit surprising as it previously sounded like there wouldn't be. However, the engine will be a straight-6 and not a V8. The gas-powered version is expected to launch next year.

The new Charger will look a little different

Another difference between the 2024 Dodge Charger and previous versions is that it will also have a two-door option. Of course, classic versions of the car were two-door, but most were expecting it to remain exclusively four-door. This new coupe Dodge Charger is reminiscent of the Challenger, which has many questioning that car's future.

Dodge didn't reveal a ton about the interior of the 2024 Dodge Charger. However, it seems it will be upscale and technologically advanced. The pictures show off a large touchscreen and a well-designed interior. Overall, this seems like it'll be a solid car from a beloved automaker.
