    Dodge will discontinue its Challenger and Charger muscle cars next year

    Dodge will discontinue its Challenger and Charger muscle cars next year-107103919-1660581384623-dg022_007mmvbuelk733k0leths8qttqfoo07-jpg

    2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat (left) and 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock

    Key Points
    • Dodge will discontinue its gas-powered Challenger and Charger muscle cars at the end of next year, as the brand transitions to electric vehicles.
    • Since being resurrected in the mid- to late 2000s, the Charger and Challenger have been stalwarts for Dodge and popular vehicles for a new generation of gearheads.
    • But the cars have also been part of a fuel economy and emissions problem for Stellantis, formerly Fiat Chrysler.



    Dodge is launching a litany of special vehicles and products to “celebrate” the end of the cars as they are today. Dodge’s plans include seven special-edition, or “buzz,” models; a commemorative “Last Call” under-hood plaque for all 2023 model-year vehicles; and a new dealer allocation process, among other measures.

    The new dealer process will see Dodge allocate 2023 Charger and Challenger models to lots all at once, instead of making orders available throughout the year.
    Dodge will provide customers a guide to locate specific models at each dealership.

    Good stuff.

    The Aussie car industry should resurrect itself by specialising in what it is famous for - V8 Ute, coupe and saloon super-cars

    Just like the British car industry did with its prestige marques.

    The niche design segment can be segued into batteries somehow

    Asia can build the shopping trolleys.

    Yeah, why can’t they move those models over into an electric version? Even the motorheads will transition in time…surely?

    You would think they would. They are beautiful cars.

    One of my neighbors in Georgia had a purple Charger. Purple! It was so hot.

    What worries me is that a great bit of car culture stands to eventually die off. New generations will not care about modding cars and tuning/hot rodding their cars. Electrification stands to kill off a really creative, unique industry.

    I suspect the market will always generate and revere such classics.

    By 2099 most will be priced out of reach, but still available. Gasoline might even still be available?

    The UK rules on car tax for classics certainly helps, but probably not in the way intended today.

    I honestly think the world will be unimaginably different by then, so hard to say.

    Ignoring the fact you cannot resurrect something that no longer exists, who would tip in the cubic dollars required.... assuming the Aus goverment would even permit it to happen ?

    273 CiD with a few extras. A real pussy wagon especially with the fold down back seat.
