2023 Dodge Charger
The charger is an iconic muscle car, and the current four-door version has been with us for over 10 years now. Yes, it’s the same car that came out in 2011 under the bodywork.
We like the way it drives (especially compared to its two-door sibling Challenger), and some variants have more than enough performance to make up for the shortcomings of, well, others.
Because it’s based on a base sedan, the Charger isn’t loaded with the latest technology or the best luxuries you’d expect from the model year 2023 engine. It’s out of place in 2023.
- The same old Dodge charger we’ve seen for years now
- We will add some new color and interior options
- But the fate of the Charger is sealed: It will go away, and soon
- Part of the seventh generation Charger introduced for 2011
Several major refreshes and additions of Hellcats, Redeyes, Scat Packs, and Widebodies have managed to keep the big sedan relevant, but there’s bad news on the horizon for the Charger.
2023 Dodge Charger plans to kill its one-of-a-kind sedan — and one of the last full-size non-luxury sedans on the market — by 2024, which means 2023 will be one of the last years you can get a new Charger. So what will happen in the future of Charger? Electrons, a lot.
Rumor has it the Charger will be replaced with a new EV sedan, but details are scarce. We don’t even know if it will bear the Charger name, although it makes sense as an EV name if you think about it.
While we’re sad to see this high horsepower symbol of American muscle go away, it’s time for a change. We just hope whatever Dodge does next lives up to its name.
As far as we know so far, Dodge is preparing to produce an electric car which they firmly believe will become one of the most beloved vehicles in the automotive market. According to reports circulating recently, the Dodge Hellcat will be discontinued after 2023.
Dodge has also been a superior carryover for the 2023 model although the opportunity to buy a high-end Dodge Hellcat SRT will be missed. Due to stricter emission regulations, the disappearance of the Dodge Hellcat SRT might not come as much of a surprise. In view of the highest specs, the car will get 15 mpg in overall driving. The 4-door Dodge charger, however, has remained largely unchanged since the 2-door Challenger was introduced in 2011.
Current chargers come in a variety of configurations starting with the SXT 300 hp 3.6L V6 trim model. The 5.7L V8 on the R/T offers more thrill at 370 hp. Even though it was upgraded to a 485 hp Scat Pack which gave access to the 6.4L V8. Whereas the 6.2L V8 in the SRT model offers between 717 hp and 797 hp based on the trim.
The Dodge Charger, which is quite old, is still in great demand by fans. Chargers continue to be highly sought-after sellers for buyers looking for muscle car fun. We really hope that there will be significant changes made in 2024, although the information is not yet official.
Overall we see Dodge may be planning to build an electric muscle car inspired by the iconic Challenger and until recently we expected the Charger 2023 release date to be around late 2022 or early 2023.
Dodge Charger Hellcat SRT Widebody
The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody has a luxurious design designed to add more detail in a stunning black finish. The front console is equipped with a large audio system that can provide its own enjoyment while driving.
The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody stands out one step further with the V8,520 KW @ 6000 RPM 707 HP @ 6000 RPM 697 BHP @ 6000 RPM The Gasoline delivers 122 hp. It’s a small machine focused on the fun to drive that is sure to blow your mind.
2023 Dodge Challenger
We never thought we’d ever say this, but the Dodge Challenger days are just counting.
Despite the stunning lack of innovation since its 2008 debut, the Challenger has become a warrior thanks to the constant small tweaks that keep the fan base engaged.
But in a world where the Challenger is easily beaten on the drag strip by a family-friendly electric sedan, Dodge realizes the current model isn’t exactly out of stock anymore.
We’re still a few years from the end of this Challenger generation, but the cutting started this year with the death of the Hellcat engine.
- Possible final year for the Hellcat engine
- Part of the third generation Challenger introduced for 2008
We believe the 2023 Dodge Challenger will be the last model year for the 6.2 liters SRT Hellcat supercharged V8. The Hellcat’s motor is very powerful, with an output range of between 717 horsepower and 807 horsepower.
That’s a lot more than the Ford Shelby GT500 or Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, but thanks to the Challenger’s incredible weight, the Dodge is slower than any of its main competitors.
Potential buyers looking for the most powerful Challenger of this generation should order right away.
While traction is more of a hope than a reality with the throttle pinned to the floor at low speeds, we’ll miss the Hellcat’s incredible thrust and explosive exhaust note.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger marks the beginning of the end for this massive grand touring coupe.
The SRT Hellcat engine is expected to be discontinued after this year, although the Challenger itself will continue for a few more years before being replaced.
2023 Dodge Durango
Historically, the Dodge Durango has been a three-row midsize SUV, but all that may change. Or not. The Dodge Durango 2023 may undergo a complete redesign.
However, the current generation may continue to live or be stopped altogether.
Dodge has not officially confirmed any of this. From our point of view, the new generation seems plausible since Durango was last redesigned in 2011.
There are several more Durango routes if held up, to take. It could follow precedent and share its platform with the recently redesigned Jeep Grand Cherokee, which seems most likely to us.
In this scenario, we expect it to get more muscle car styling to set it apart from other SUVs in its class. On the other hand, it could adopt the body-on-frame chassis of the new Jeep Wagoneer, which would improve towing and off-road capabilities but might affect on-road behavior and comfort.
Then again, given the last two years of the pandemic, Durango may have only seen minor changes to existing conditions.
If the 2023 Dodge Durango sticks with its Grand Cherokee roots, we expect it to continue to compete with the Top Rated Kia Telluride Edmunds as well as the Hyundai Palisade and Honda Pilot.
Taking the Wagoneer route, we expect prices to rise to near-luxury levels. This is anyone’s guess at this point, so keep an eye on this page for all the latest updates.
We don’t have any official information about the Dodge Durango 2023 yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a redesign as this generation has been around since 2011.
Stick with Edmunds as we will continue to update our information on the 2023 Durango as we find out more.
2023 Dodge Hellcat Models
We have known for some time that the end of Hell is drawing near. Earlier this year, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said so but the exact ending remains ambiguous.
Now, that’s narrowed down to the model year – 2023 to be specific. With the 2022 model year just around the corner, the Hellcat’s final ride will be upon us before we know it.
This means that this latest report from the Motor Authority is accurate. We have no reason to believe it, as the Dodge Kuniskis boss is once again cited as the source of this latest information.
We’ve reached out to Dodge for immediate confirmation and we’ll update this article with a statement if we receive it, but there’s little reason to doubt 2023 as the last year for the Hellcat model.
Hell Cat Durango will be gone; it’s always meant to be a one-and-done model. In August we reported on Kuniskis stating Dodge’s new electric muscle car will arrive in 2024.
When you set things up, 2023 Dodge comes to an obvious conclusion.
There is only one catch to note. The report from August we just mentioned? In it, Kuniskis suggests there may be some overlap between the next-generation electric muscle and the outgoing Hellcats.
That goes against recent statements that definitively end the supercharged Charger and Challenger in 2023, which is why we’re pushing Dodge for an official statement. But wait, there’s more.
In a recent report, Kuniskis stated a functional prototype of the new EV muscle car will appear in 2022.
Whether it emerges as a so-called near-production vehicle or a wild concept is unknown, but perhaps this fits Dodge’s definition of live muscle electric and internal combustion.
Side by side. It’s going to be a stretch, but with most of the major automakers accelerating EV development, perhaps a Hellcat replacement could arrive a little earlier.
For now, at least, the Hemi V8 power is alive and well. Dodge recently unveiled new Jailbreak versions of the SRT Challenger and Charger Redeye models, offering new color options, a custom badge, and an increase in the output of the 6.2-liter Hellcat to 807 horsepower.
And we highly doubt this will be the last round of special edition hell kitty before they go soundless into the night.
