Where is the battery in a Dodge Charger?

I ordered a new battery for my Dodge Charger and planned to change it myself, but I’m not sure exactly where the old battery is. It looks like there’s a battery under the hood, but when I searched online, apparently there’s one in the trunk too. Where’s the battery located on a Dodge Charger?

Changing your battery can save you time and money – just be sure to follow good safety guidelines when dealing with any electrical components.
