Dodge’s long-awaited electric muscle car concept looks set to debut with a few more new products from Dodge.
On Thursday, Dodge announced that there would be three releases on the 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise by the end of this summer. The company calls it Dodge Speed Week and is set to announce something around its current muscle cars on August 15th, a “Gateway Muscle” car on August 16th and a “Future Muscle” ride on August 17th.
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said the timeline jib Motor authority. With hellets set to die after the 2023 model year, the announcement of the “current muscle” car is probably one or more send-off variants. We hope that these special editions will have unique paint, graphics and / or wheels. The extra power could be on the tap, although Kuniskis vowed that the Demon would be the most powerful muscle car ever made by an automaker. In terms of the impending transition to electric vehicles, we assume that only gas-powered muscle cars are related.

The “gateway muscle” car is probably a 2023 Hornet crossover SUV. Set as a re-skinned alpha tonal, Hornet will promise Dodge of a plug-in hybrid in 2022. Spy shots seem to confirm that the Hornet’s external differences from the tonal are limited to the headlights, grille, front fascia, and wheels. Internal differences may be limited to badging and color, although the Hornet may be more spartan with lower quality material. The tonal has a turbo-4 feature that connects the front wheels to an electric motor that drives the rear wheels combined 272 hp.

The grand finale of the release will be the “Future Muscle” car, which is undoubtedly the concept version of the electric 2024 muscle car. Kuniskis said earlier M.A. It will be a full-on working model capable of high-performance driving. The executive said Dodge “plans to electrify differently than everyone else.” He did not elaborate, however, saying the team was still waiting for some patents to be finalized. Kuniskis had previously said that the release would take place in the first quarter of 2022, so it was clearly behind schedule.
