An American muscle car legacy ends with the departure of the Dodge Charger and Challenger for which 2023 will be the last model year.
The Challenger costs from $32,140 for the cheapest SXT variant to $100,910 for the priciest Black Ghost Special Edition. In its turn, the Charger costs between $34,240 (SXT model) and $100,015 (King Daytona Special Edition).
The carmaker offers a new Dodge Horsepower Locator online tool available at DodgeGarage.com. It helps in searching dealerships and tracking allocations by each dealer.
In August 2022, the company unveiled an all-electric Dodge Daytona SRT Concept with a new 800-volt, all-wheel drive Banshee architecture. That car is a possible replacement for the outgoing Dodge Charger and Challenger.
It surpasses its predecessors powered by a Hellcat V8 in “all key performance measures.” That is, it should be faster and more potent than a 797-hp Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
