2024 Dodge Charger Engine Options


The Dodge Charger has long been known as one of the most powerful and iconic muscle cars on the market. For 2024, Dodge has taken things to the next level, offering a diverse range of engine options that cater to a wide variety of driving preferences and performance needs. From the efficient, responsive Pentastar V-6 to the earth-shaking supercharged HEMI V-8, the Charger lineup has something for everyone.

In addition to the traditional gasoline-powered engines, the 2024 Charger also introduces all-electric variants under the Daytona electric vehicle (EV) nameplate. These cutting-edge models blend the Charger’s signature performance with eco-friendly technology, delivering an unparalleled driving experience that’s both exhilarating and sustainable.

Base Engine

The entry-level engine for the 2024 Dodge Charger is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6. This naturally aspirated powerplant delivers a solid foundation of performance and efficiency, making it an excellent choice for daily driving. In the SXT trim, the Pentastar V-6 produces 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, while the GT model bumps those figures up to 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque.

The Pentastar V-6 is known for its smooth, linear power delivery and impressive fuel efficiency. With an estimated 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, this engine helps the Charger strike a balance between performance and practicality. Whether you’re commuting to work or embarking on a weekend road trip, the Pentastar V-6 provides a reliable, enjoyable driving experience.

Performance Engine Options

The 2024 Dodge Charger offers a range of high-performance engine options. The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, available in the R/T trim, is a classic Mopar powerplant that delivers 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. The iconic rumble of this V-8 engine is sure to turn heads, and its robust performance capabilities make it a favorite if you’re a Dodge enthusiast.

Stepping up to the Scat Pack trims, the 392 cubic-inch, 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 takes the Charger’s performance to the next level. Churning out 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, this engine provides an exhilarating driving experience that’s sure to leave a lasting impression. With blistering acceleration and a menacing exhaust note, the 392 HEMI is the perfect choice if you want to dominate the streets and the track.

At the top of the gasoline-powered Charger lineup are the SRT Hellcat trims, which are equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8. In the SRT Hellcat, this engine produces a staggering 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. These are truly the kings of the muscle car world, delivering performance that borders on the absurd.

Fuel Efficiency

The Pentastar V-6 offers an impressive 30 mpg on the highway, making it a great choice if you want to balance performance and fuel economy.

The HEMI V-8 engines also benefit from fuel-saving technologies like cylinder deactivation, which allows the engine to operate on four cylinders in light load conditions, helping to improve overall efficiency. The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 achieves an estimated 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, while the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 in the Scat Pack models returns 15 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

The all-electric Charger Daytona models offer the ultimate in fuel efficiency, as they consume no gasoline at all. The Charger Daytona R/T boasts an estimated range of over 317 miles on a single charge, while the more powerful Daytona Scat Pack can travel up to 260 miles before needing to be plugged in. With the ability to recharge from 20% to 80% in just over 27 minutes using a 350 kW DC fast charger, these electric muscle cars offer an eco-friendly alternative without sacrificing performance.

Towing and Hauling

While the 2024 Dodge Charger is primarily known for its impressive performance capabilities, it also offers respectable towing and hauling capacities, particularly when equipped with one of the available V-8 engines. The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 allows the Charger to tow up to 1,000 pounds when properly equipped.

This makes the Charger a versatile choice if you need to occasionally tow a small trailer or haul heavy loads. With its powerful engines and sturdy construction, the Charger is more than capable of handling everyday towing and hauling tasks.
