Era Ends as Final Dodge Challenger Comes Off The Line


era ends as final challenger comes off the line

We’ve slowly been saying goodbye to the Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300, and Dodge Challenger — now we can officially wave goodbye to the platform, including the Hemi.

Following the final Chrysler 300, which rolled off the line earlier this month, and its rival, the Chevrolet Camaro, the Challenger heads to the junkyard in the sky. The send-off at the Brampton, Ontario plant involved a Scat Pack Widebody Charger and, befitting Dodge’s muscle-car image, a black Challenger SRT Demon 170. Yes, the 1,025 horsepower Demon 170.

Both cars came off the line on Friday. You can see the Challenger on Facebook.

We know some version of the Charger, likely electrified to some extent, will return. But the days of the L platform hosting Hemi-powered V8s are over. We’ll miss the grunt, if not the gas bills and gas-guzzler taxes.

Fare thee well, Challenger, Charger, and 300.
