The clock is ticking for Dodge's Charger and Challenger muscle cars, with the automaker announcing that order books will be closed shut at the end of July. Dodge told us earlier this year that there will be no exceptions once production ends around December 31, so interested buyers should act now to get one of the last Hemi-powered Dodge vehicles before it's too late. The end of the Charger and Challenger will also signal the end of Dodge's Hellcat V8, as the storied brand will be turning to electrification from now on.




Unless you've been living under a rock, the demise of the two muscle cars is not breaking news. Since the announcement of the models' departutes, seven Last Call limited-edition models have been launched, including Black Ghost, Shakedown, and Scat Pack Swinger special editions for the Dodge Challenger, and King Daytona, Super Bee, and Scat Pack Swinger special editions for the Charger. Last but not least, Dodge finished off the Last Call lineup with the Challenger SRT Demon 170, which represents the epitome of what the automaker can do with factory Mopar components and a fully gas-powered engine. The Demon 170 pumps out a whopping 1,025 horsepower from its screaming V8, hitting 60 mph in an EV-crushing 1.66 seconds. Unfortunately, all 3,000 units destined for the U.S. have already been taken.


"For enthusiasts looking to order a Dodge Challenger or Charger, especially a high-horsepower model, such as the Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, or a special-edition model, it’s truly the last call for the 'Last Call,'" said Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge. "As we transition to an exciting, electrified muscle car future, we’re marking the end of an unforgettable era for Dodge, and time is running out for those who want to own a piece of it."




Aside from the Last Call models, the final stream of buyers can still opt for the existing versions of the muscle car duo, along with some unique additions to the options list for their final model year. Dodge has brought back several popular colors that were previously discontinued, such as Destroyer Grey, B5 Blue, Sublime, and Plum Crazy, and all models produced for the 2023 model year feature Last Call badging.


If you find yourself rushing to order one of the last Dodge Charger or Challenger models, Dodge has made the situation less frantic with a new Horsepower Locator tool through its Dodge Garage website. It displays the remaining stock and allocations from local Dodge dealers, making it easier to begin ordering your ideal Charger or Challenger. Just keep in mind that there's only about two weeks left to place an order, so prospective buyers need to act now.
