Last Call? Nah, something with the Charger and Challenger nameplate is coming that is even better than before. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Aug. 15, 2022 The 4-door Dodge Charger and 2-door Challenger, in their current form, are coming to an end according to a recent release and the Dodge brand is ready to celebrate. The 2023 Dodge Charger and Challenger 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” under hood plaque for all 2023 Charger and Challenger vehicles and a new, customer-focused vehicle allocation process. 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger Last call my ass. Demon, Hellcat, Redeye, Scat Pack, Shaker, Jailbreak. Iconic Dodge Charger and Challenger models have ushered in a second golden age of the muscle car, continuously elevating the magic number for performance from the 707 HP of the original Hellcat to the 840 HP of Challenger SRT Demon. Since the modern-day Charger was launched in 2005, the Brampton (Ontario, Canada) Assembly Plant has built 3 million Dodge vehicles, representing a billion horsepower. Charger and Challenger are departing on top — Challenger closed 2021 as the No. 1 muscle car in the U.S. — with enthusiast demand that will only gain momentum as the brand teases the rollout of the 2023 vehicle lineup. US Sales of the Charger and Challenger through the first half of 2022 compared to its competitors from Ford and Chevrolet show the overwhelming popularity of these two Dodge brand performance icons. And why this may not be the beginning of the end but only a transformation to a new, even more powerful, all-electric drivetrain. Dodge Charger (38,459) and Challenger (25,682) were picked up by a boatload of new owners in the first half of 2022. By comparison, the Mustang reached 29,611 new garages while the Camaro was parked in just 11,255 new drives in the first half of 2022. All 2023 Dodge Charger and Challenger models will also carry a special commemorative “Last Call” under hood plaque, making every 2023 Charger and Challenger a true collector’s vehicle. The brushed aluminum under hood “Last Call” plaque features the vehicle name and a vehicle silhouette, as well as “Designed in Auburn Hills” and “Assembled in Brampton” to proclaim each vehicle’s origin. In honor of the Charger and Challenger, "Closing Time" by Semisonic seems appropriate. Closing time, open all the doors And let you out into the world Closing time, turn all of the lights on Over every boy and every girl Closing time, one last call for alcohol So, finish your whiskey or beer Closing time, you don't have to go home But you can't stay here I know who I want to take me home I know who I want to take me home I know who I want to take me home Take me home Closing time, time for you to go out To the places you will be from Closing time, this room won't be open Till your brothers or your sisters come So, gather up your jackets, move it to the exits I hope you have found a friend Closing time, every new beginning Comes from some other beginning's end, yeah I know who I want to take me home I know who I want to take me home I know who I want to take me home Take me home … My take? Yeah, every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end indeed.
