Say Goodbye to the Challenger and Charger in 2023

January 30th, 2022 by

The first Dodge Charger was produced in 1966 and the first Dodge Challenger was produced in 1970. These iconic American muscle cars are a part of history. They’ve made their way into the hearts of Americans, giving next-level performance to the everyday driver. Throughout the years, Dodge has continued to build onto the Challenger and Charger with even more fierce road-ready variants. If you’ve always wanted a Dodge Charger or Challenger, contact us at Hebert’s Town and Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Shreveport, LA and let our friendly staff assist you.

Why is Dodge discontinuing such glorious machines? 

Stellantis, a mega auto conglomerate that owns Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and many more, was formed in 2021. When this merge took place Dodge was thought to be one of the brands on the chopping block. Jeep sells profitable SUVs and Ram sells profitable pickup trucks. But cranking out emissions and fine-courting V8-powered Chargers and Challengers was not a way forward for Dodge. Because of this merge, the fat set to be cut involves the Charger and the Challenger.

What’s next for Dodge Muscle?

As you may have heard, Dodge is creating an eMuscle car, as Dodge calls it, and the first concept is set to roll out early this year. In 2024 the new electric vehicle is set to hit the road. We know for sure that 2023 will be the conclusion of the Hellcat. This high-performance, gas-powered engine seems to have lost its place with Dodge muscle because of the switch to eMuscle. Dodge will continue to produce muscle cars, it just won’t be Charger and Challenger muscle that we’ve known for years.
