Why Is Dodge Discontinuing the Charger & Challenger?

When many Spanaway enthusiasts think of American muscle cars, two of the most iconic models that come up are the Dodge Challenger and the Dodge Charger. Both of these Dodge vehicles deliver a level of performance and styling that’s hard to find anywhere else but all good things must come to an end. So, why is Dodge discontinuing the Charge and Challenger? The two main reasons why the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger are discontinued for 2023 are because of the new focuses for Stellantis.

Stellantis is the parent company of Dodge and it’s heavily investing in electrified vehicles and SUVs. Electrified vehicles and SUVs are becoming increasingly popular among many DuPont drivers so it makes sense that the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger are discontinued for 2023. Don’t worry though, there are still plenty of exciting vehicles to come for the Dodge model lineup.
