The current Dodge Challenger “hold out” on the assembly line until 2023

Rumor has it that the leadership of the American Dodge may decide to simultaneously produce a completely new and current generation of its iconic sports model Challenger.

The American sports coupe Dodge Challenger has not undergone significant changes since it was first introduced in 2008. The iconic sports model received a major update in 2015, which helped to “revive” its sales and it is still unclear when Dodge will introduce a completely new generation of its coupe. Earlier, there were rumors that the new product will arrive in 2023.

Now it is reported that after this event, the production of the current version of the model will not be minimized.

Foreign publication Mopar Insiders, referring to its trusted sources in the Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which includes Dodge, said that the serial production of the current generation of Challenger will continue until the 2023 model year.

The publication claims that Dodge is considering creating the current and next generation Challenger models together, at least for several months, at the Brampton assembly plant in Ontario, Canada. The launch of the next-generation Challenger and Charger sedan are expected to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2022. This information matches the “easter egg” that was previously “hidden” in the official Dodge photo – the Challenger odometer was 2023 miles. However, Dodge itself hastened to refute all the rumors that a new version of Challenger will appear in 2023.

 I must say that the Challenger coupe is one of the best-selling Dodge models, surpassing the sporty Chevy Camaro in sales in 2019 in terms of sales. Over the years, Dodge continued to improve the platform of the car, presenting at the same time more powerful versions of the model – SRT Hellcat and SRT Demon.
