This famous Muscle Car V8 will end after 2023


Dodge’s powerful V8 engine is one of the most efficient engines out there, but unfortunately it will be phasing out production with the 2023 model year.

The Stellantis brand had taken this extreme step due to the arrival of the all-electric muscle car in 2024.

“I’ll have this car, this rig, this powertrain as we know it until the end of 23. There are still two years left to buy a Hellcat, and then that’s history,” explained Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis at the 2021 Los Angeles auto show.

“There are still two years to buy a Hellcat, and then that’s old history,” he added, making it clear that Dodge is focusing on new cars and platforms from 2024.

According to Driving authority, there is a 24 Months of Muscle calendar style card that the company used for 2024.

The map features 26 garage doors while four have already been revealed and the final reveal will be the 2024 all-electric Dodge muscle car.

The concept of the all-electric 2024 muscle car will be unveiled around 2022.

This is the time when we are going to witness the performance stats and specs of the car.

Dodge is also said to ship the 2024 model with advanced electric technology.

Come to Hell cat, the supercharged V8 engine was introduced with the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat which can reach 707 hp. However, a few other versions were released with 808 hp.

Even Dodge has already stopped production of the limited-edition Durango SRT Hellcat SUV due to strict federal emissions rules.

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

In addition, Hellcat Challengers and Charges customers must pay an additional heavy gasoline tax of $ 2,100.

Dodge will end the Hellcat on a high note ahead of the release of its 2024 model.
