The Next-Gen Dodge Charger Should Arrive Next Summer, According To One Forecaster

July has come and gone, which means we’re in the part of the year when manufacturers start releasing products for the next model year. For Dodge, that means there are a lot of watchful eyes on the brand. 2023 will mark the end of production for the Dodge Charger and Challenger in their current forms, and that alone is sad to see. But according to Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis, things are ramping up, and we can expect to see more products on showroom floors next year than we currently see today. The Dodge Hornet is offered in two forms: standard gas power and a plug-in hybrid. But, beyond that, the brand has been mum about anything else. We already know the Banshee line of muscle cars is still a way out, so what’s next for the performance brand?

Muscle Cars? EVs? Here’s What Can You Expect From The Future Of Dodge

Looking further into this topic are two automotive analysts on the Talking About Cars Podcast, which takes a closer look at the future of Dodge, which is currently up in the air. Sam Firoani, the lead analyst from AutoForecast Solutions, appeared on the podcast, which can be viewed through the Powertube TV YouTube channel, to discuss what we can expect to see from the company. According to Fiorani, the replacement for the Dodge Charger and Challenger will begin production in the Summer of next year, starting with the two-door configuration of the Charger, and a four-door will arrive sometime later. It’s unclear how a two-door Charger and Challenger would co-exist at this time.

But, unlike how companies used to do things, there are gaps between removing one product and releasing something new. That’s especially true for the upcoming Dodge products, which will see a sizeable gap from the end of December when production of the Dodge Charger and Challenger will end, and the start of the production of the replacement will be about six months later.

If you want to watch the podcast for yourselves, Sam Fiorani enters the stage at around the 12-minute mark, where the podcast truly gets interesting. Dodge’s claim of having more products than we see today will hold, but it’ll take a bit to reach that point.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
