The parent company of Dodge, Stellantis, announced on Monday that production will officially seize this December (2023). To commemorate the vehicles, the company said Dodge’s lineup next year will feature seven special-edition models, each of which will have a “Last Call” plaque under the hood, according to CBS News.
Since their inception in the 1960’s, the Challenger and Charger have undoubtedly served two of the brand’s most popular models. Though notable assets, the company (and industry as a whole) is focusing more on producing electric cars moving forward.

“Dodge, with the Challenger and Charger, they really found a way to really get to that muscle car root. These cars definitely expressed it … and were able to hold onto that essence,” said Stephanie Brinley, principal analyst at S&P Global.
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis has hinted that the names of the vehicles may resurrect at some point. Charger and Challenger could be used for future electrified vehicles, including a forthcoming 2024 electric muscle car. Kuniskis states his belief that electrification will save the new “Golden Age of muscle cars.”
