Since their inception in the 1960’s, the Challenger and Charger have undoubtedly served two of the brand’s most popular models. Though notable assets, the company (and industry as a whole) is focusing more on producing electric cars moving forward.

“Dodge, with the Challenger and Charger, they really found a way to really get to that muscle car root. These cars definitely expressed it … and were able to hold onto that essence,” said Stephanie Brinley, principal analyst at S&P Global.

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis has hinted that the names of the vehicles may resurrect at some point. Charger and Challenger could be used for future electrified vehicles, including a forthcoming 2024 electric muscle car. Kuniskis states his belief that electrification will save the new “Golden Age of muscle cars.”
