Star Trek: The Next Generation, “All good things must come to an end.” Dodge to wrap up in 2023

The future is now much clearer for Dodge after its CEO’s clarification but not in the case of Hellcats.

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis spoke at the auto show 2021 held in Los Angeles about the future of Dodge in the next few years. Speaking to the Motor Authority, Tim confirmed that “I will have this car, this platform, this powertrain as we know it through the end of ’23. There are two more years to buy a Hellcat, then it’s history.”

When the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat arrived back in July 2020, the automaker announced that this will be the only supercharged SUV for the next 6 months. Back in that time, the range of SUV units allowed were only 2000 for which the CEO said, Things have changed’

In the same year, Stellantis, Dodge Garage outlet owner, made a statement that Dodge production in 2021 will be a revamp of the Durango SRT Hellcat that was originally built with 2000 units.

Now, the three people mover can be afforded with a Hellcat engine for this year instead and will be replaced with the electric car concept the following year. The reason behind the modification is obvious; that the engines of the vehicles will no longer be meeting the required emission regulations of the same platform. But the CEO also mentioned that the case is different for Hellcats.

Tim Kuniskis added:

“You can still meet emissions with these cars. You’re going to pay a lot of compliance fines.”

Dodge is planning to launch the electrical concept version 2024 of its muscle cars in 2022’s first quarter. The electrical vehicle concept will be a functional working model capable enough to drive with high performance. Kuniskis also added that they are going to reveal EV’s performance specifications with the Stellantis technology.
