Dodge will Introduce its Seventh “Last Call” Edition in March

Hemi V8 and electric power will cohabit at the Dodge Performance Festival where the company will launch its final "Last Call" Edition.

  • This will be the last special edition made for the Hemi-powered Charger and Challenger.

  • Dodge will also showcase the electric Charger Daytona SRT Concept.

  • The launch will be part of a festival that will include drag racing, a car show, and celebrity appearances.

2023 is signalling the end for the Hemi-powered muscle cars at Dodge, and the brand will launch its final “Last Call” edition on March 20th in Las Vegas.

Announced last year, the seven “Last Call” editions of the Dodge Charger and Challenger have been unveiled periodically over the last few months, with the last being released in March of this year.

These editions commemorate V8 performance from Mopar, which will end this year when the current generation of the Charger and Challenger are replaced by a new model.

Official details about the new muscle car have not been confirmed, with some sources claiming a new generation will replace the current V8 engine with the new Hurricane twin-turbocharged inline-six-cylinder unit launched by Stellantis in 2022.

Others say that there will be no gasoline engines offered in the next generation of the Dodge Muscle car, which will be based heavily on the electric Charger Daytona SRT Concept unveiled in August.

Even if the next-gen Charger and Challenger come back with the six-cylinder powertrain, the future of Dodge performance seems to be battery-powered.

Indeed, the company bills the Charger Daytona SRT Concept as an almost production-ready look into what’s coming from Dodge.

This is why the automaker will also showcase this performance EV during the launch of the final “Last Call” edition of the current models.

This event will be more than a regular product launch, however since Dodge doesn’t want its famed Hemi V8 to bow out quietly.

The event will be part of the Dodge Performance festival held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and it will feature a day of drag racing, a Dodge-specific car show, and celebrity appearances. Also unlike a regular car launch, this event will be open to the general public.
