The Dodge Charger and Challenger made their “Last Call”. After a series of special swan song models, the two Hemi-powered muscle cars are nearing the end of production, with production discontinued in December 2023. This will leave the Hornet and Durango as the two remaining cars in Dodge’s lineup. beyond 2023.
But that’s not always the case, according to Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis. Speak to Muscle Cars & TrucksKuniskis says there will be more Dodge products to be introduced next year to fill the void left by muscle cars.
“I will tell you that it is more than today. And not even a little bit more than today,” Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis told the publication.
Kuniskis added that Dodge’s long-term future plans will be disclosed to dealers next year. He also hoped that this plan would leak out even though he sounded like he was fine with it happening.
“By the way, we will be sharing our long term future plans with our dealers early next year. And we wanted to believe all of this stuff was top secret when we did, but it wasn’t,” Kuniskis said during a question and answer session.
As for what will be revealed in 2023 to join Dodge’s model lineup, that remains a mystery at this point. A full-size version of the Durango is hypothesized to be introduced, as well as a next-generation Hurricane I6 engine-powered muscle car based on the new STLA Large architecture.
A production version of the newly introduced electric muscle car, previewed in the Charger Daytona SRT Concept, could also arrive in showrooms in 2024. Of note, there will be several versions of this “eMuscle” car, which varies power output depending on the model.
