Dodge Has Made The Charger Daytona SRT Sound Angrier Than Ever

Video / 9 Comments

The Fratzonic Exhaust's latest refinements sound worthier of the hallowed muscle car's name.

Dodge has updated the sound emanating from the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust found on the Charger Daytona SRT Concept, making it sound deeper and meatier. This is all part of the automaker's plan to slowly refine its idea of the perfect electric muscle car before a production version is launched later in the decade. To appeal to multiple audiences and to help differentiate future electric muscle cars from each other, Dodge has previously announced that it can play with the innovative exhaust system to create different sounds, and although this new clip shows that the sound has become more raucous, we're positive that there will be many more iterations of the audio to follow.


As you may recall, this Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust is so-named because it effectively acts as a sort of pipe organ, directing and amplifying the natural sounds that electric motors make through a chamber and outward where passersby can hear it. This means that the noise is not fake and is not pumped out by a speaker. Rather, it is an exaggeration of the sounds that the existing EV package can generate. That being said, Dodge has been very secretive about exactly how it works, so we do not know how the automaker made the new sound so much more thunderous than that presented at the concept's launch back in August 2022.


When Dodge first presented the concept, it said it was as loud as the Charger SRT Hellcat at 126 decibels. It's unclear if the modifications to the sound emitted by the car have increased, lowered, or maintained that volume level, but it is comforting to see that Dodge is constantly tweaking its first crack at electric muscle.

Of course, no matter how impressive this turns out to be when it finally reaches production, there will be those who cannot embrace anything electric. But with Dodge (and Ferrari) at least trying to give people what they want, an all-electric future may not be so dull after all.
