New Electric Dodge Charger to Star in the New “Fast and Furious” Movie
Ever since the dawn of the franchise, the Fast and Furious universe has been all about cars. Sure, over the years, there have been plenty of storylines and plot twists for fans to sink their teeth into. However, with the ever-changing tone of the franchise, it seems as if the thing that keeps us all coming back is the fact that we know that we’re going to see some awesome rides on screen doing some insane stunts.
With that, one might wonder what exactly is in store for the 10th installment of the franchise when it rolls into theaters next year.
We have to warn you because there are a couple of minor spoilers that lie ahead.
Over on the Fast Family YouTube channel, we learn all about some of the behind-the-scenes things that are happening in the Fast and Furious universe. Previously, the channel posted about some of the filming locations that the upcoming Fast X will feature.
This time, the topic of discussion is exactly what machines are in store for the next film.
Among the group, there are quite a few cars that have been staples of the franchise and will continue to show up on screen in the next flick. For example, we know that Vin Diesel is going to be driving some sort of old-school Dodge Charger to pay homage to the iconic muscle car from films past. It’s also absolutely no surprise that there will be a variety of modern Dodge product placements as well as this has become a common thread among the past couple of films. We will of course see some new additions as well. One, in particular, that stood out from the spy shots rotating around is a Chevrolet El Camino that looks to be hooked up with some sort of rocket or flamethrower of some sort.
However, what was most surprising is that these spy shots from the set also showcase the filming of the new Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV. The electric vehicle has made waves as a highly controversial release that sparked conversation when Dodge actually hooked the car up with a functional exhaust that creates sound to make it feel more like a gasoline-powered car. Of course, the sheer presence of electric vehicles on American highways is something that continues to anger a substantial portion of the car community as well.
In any case, Dodge’s most talked about EV will make its way to the biggest car-related franchise of them all. We know that the Dodge product placement in these films is undeniable at this point but how this electric car will fit into the landscape and how fans will respond are another story entirely.
