Production For The 2023 Dodge Challenger & Charger Will Cease No Later Than December 31st
As we are already halfway through the year, many auto enthusiasts only have a limited amount of time left before the coveted “Last Call” 2023 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger in their current HEMI-powered forms are gone for good. Suddenly the words “Last Call” take on a whole new meaning for anyone determined to get their hands on one of these cars before Dodge slams the door shut forever.
All 2023 Dodge Chargers and Challengers, including the rare “Last Call” models, will end production as of December 31st, 2023. This will mark the end of Dodge’s longstanding HEMI era and forge the path into its new e-muscle era by starting with their first all-electric muscle car, the 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona SRT. As of now (July 2023), interested customers will have less than six months until this generation of muscle cars rolls off the assembly line and into the sunset.
How To Find Your 2023 Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger
“For enthusiasts looking to order a 2023 Dodge Challenger or Charger, especially a high-horsepower model, such as the Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat or a special-edition model, it’s truly the last call for the ‘Last Call,’” says Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand CEO – Stellantis. “As we transition to an exciting, electrified muscle car future, we’re marking the end of an unforgettable era for Dodge, and time is running out for those who want to own a piece of it.”
Those interested in locating a Dodge “Last Call” model are encouraged to use the Dodge Horsepower Locator tool at DodgeGarage.com, then use the search results to contact their local dealer to place an order. This will allow enthusiasts access to the full availability of all the remaining “Last Call” 2023 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Chargers throughout the entire U.S. Users can refine their search by zip code, model, special-edition model, as well as trim selection for both Challengers and Chargers.
What Is In Dodge’s Electrified Future?
Aside from the 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona SRT e-muscle car, another peek into Dodge’s approach to EVs is the upcoming 2024 Dodge Hornet R/T, which is the hybrid version of its gas-powered sibling, the Dodge Hornet GT.
“The Dodge Hornet R/T represents the first-ever performance electrified vehicle from Dodge and delivers the most powerful compact utility vehicle in the segment with 288 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque,” said in a statement. “The Dodge Hornet R/T offers 32 miles of all-electric range via a 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery, 77 MPGe and 360 miles of total range, as well as a class-exclusive, on-demand PowerShot feature that supplies a burst of 30 horsepower, resulting in a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.6 seconds.”
It seems that Dodge, much like the rest of the auto industry, is changing with the times. But it appears that its attitude towards maximizing power, performance, and speed has remained the same.
