Dodge to Discontinue Challenger, Charger Production

Dodge has announced that it will end production of the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger after 2023.

“We are celebrating the end of an era—and the start of a bright new electrified future—by staying true to our brand,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer of Stellantis, the global automaker and mobility provider with a portfolio of brands including Dodge. 

As part of this announcement, the Dodge 2023 lineup will pay homage to the muscle car pair with seven special models, the return of a rainbow of heritage colors, an expansion of SRT Jailbreak models, a commemorative “Last Call” underhood plaque for all 2023 Charger and Challenger vehicles and a new, customer-focused vehicle allocation process.

The new 2023 models were teased and displayed under full vehicle covers at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan, during the first day of the three-day Dodge Speed Week event. 

Details and specific information on six of the vehicles will be released later this year. The new models will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis at top-selling Dodge dealerships, with a list of dealerships to be shared on dodgegarage.com.

The seventh and final 2023 Dodge model will be the “very last of its kind” and will be revealed at the 2022 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nov. 1–4.
