What Comes After the Dodge Challenger & Charger are Discontinued?

2022 Dodge Charger vs. 2022 Dodge Challenger

The 2023 Dodge Challenger and the 2023 Dodge Charger will continue to be built up until the start of the new year, but don’t expect a new production run for 2024. 2023 is the very last year for these two classic muscle cars—but the manufacturer’s commitment to legendary performance isn’t changing anytime soon. In fact, Dodge’s electric car division is already revolutionizing the lineup in preparation for the new era.



Why is Dodge Discontinuing the Charger and the Challenger?

The Charger and the Challenger have won fierce fans all across the country, and it’s not hard to see why. Designed in Michigan and built in Canada, these two vehicles have long offered some of the most powerful engines available in any production car on the market. They’ve also been offered in an incredible range of colors and designs, which meant that any would-be Dodge driver could bring home a totally unique and personalized muscle car.

In fact, they still can: the latest Charger and the latest Challenger are both still available at our Hastings dealership, just a short drive away from Grand Island or Kearney. These two muscle cars are even being offered in an array of iconic special edition trims:

  • Dodge Challenger Shakedown Special Edition
  • Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Widebody Swinger Special Edition
  • Dodge Challenger Black Ghost Special Edition
  • Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon 170 Special Edition
  • Dodge Charger Super Bee Special Edition
  • Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Swinger Special Edition
  • Dodge Charger King Daytona Special Edition

Okay, so there’s definitely a lot to love about the current generation of Dodge muscle cars. Why is Dodge discontinuing the Charger and the Challenger if they have so much to offer?

  • Dodge’s electric car division is gearing up for the next generation of automotive technology. The brand’s parent company, Stellantis, has already invested 99 million into their EV production line.
  • Recently, we’ve all seen that electric cars can deliver incredible amounts of horsepower and torque. Dodge drivers want in on the action—and that’s where the Dodge Banshee comes in.

Introducing the Dodge Banshee

There’s going to be an electric Dodge Charger in the not-so-distant future, and local muscle car enthusiasts are already waiting on the edges of their seats. This model is officially known as the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee, but many have started referring to it as the Dodge Banshee for short.

Here’s what we know about the Dodge Banshee right now:

  • Dodge promises that the electric Dodge Charger will have more horsepower and torque than the lineup’s current supercharged V8s.
  • The concept model that was recently debuted looks a lot like the current Dodge Charger—implying that the new production model will retain the old favorite’s good looks. Dodge has also promised that it will be as aerodynamic as possible, so you can still expect a few notable changes.
  • EVs are quiet, right? Not so for the forthcoming electric Dodge Charger. Dodge has already claimed that “you’ll definitely hear it coming,” and that means it’s guaranteed to roar when you pull out all the stops.
