Current Dodge Charger and Challenger Will Be No More After 2024
Fans of the iconic Dodge Charger and Challenger hoping for a refreshed version of those cars won’t like the latest news. According to a report from MotorTrend that sources Dodge brand CEO Tim Kuniskis, those two muscle cars will go out of production by 2024. “These cars that you know today will go out of production by the time we get to 2024,” said Kuniskis.
Both the Charger and Challenger vehicles will be replaced by new cars on new platforms. It’s unclear if they will carry the same names, but there’s a high likelihood they will be electric or hybrid electric vehicles. Dodge plans to produce its first electric vehicle in 2024. In addition, it will show off an electric muscle car concept early next year. The teaser image seen above looks a lot like the front end of a classic Charger.
It’s sad to hear that the current line of muscle cars will exit production by 2024. It’s also sad to think that the days of the V8 for Dodge are likely numbered. It’s yet to be seen if the Charger and Challenger names will live on, or if they too will go the way of the dinosaur.
