NowCar Last Call 2023 Dodge Charger HEMI

Dodge Brings an End to the HEMI and Gasoline Dodge Models

Written By, Jordan R

Last call! It’s the last call for high-performance Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models! Wait, that sounds familiar, doesn’t it? In 2022, muscle car automaker Dodge announced that the next generation of the Dodge Challenger will be a battery-electric vehicle (BEV). This generation is the last time a Challenger will be gasoline-powered, with the Dodge Hornet as the first model to start the transition. This started the “Last Call” run of special-edition Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models, ending with the return of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon (170). Now, Dodge is at it again with the “Last Call” for HEMI®-powered 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger muscle cars.

“For enthusiasts looking to order a Dodge Challenger or Charger, especially a high-horsepower model, such as the Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat or a special-edition model, it’s truly the last call for the ‘Last Call’…As we transition to an exciting, electrified muscle car future, we’re marking the end of an unforgettable era for Dodge, and time is running out for those who want to own a piece of it.” - Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand CEO – Stellantis

Whether we call it a “surprise” last call model or not, this will definitely be the last time consumers can get their hands on an all-gasoline, high-performance muscle car by Dodge. The first six “Last Call” models were the Challenger Shakedown R/T Scat Pack, Challenger Shakedown R/T Scat Pack Widebody, the 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee, a duet with the  third and fourth “Last Call” as the 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swingers, the 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona as the fifth “Last Call” model, and the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost. The last and seventh “Last Call” model was the SRT Demon. Ever since Dodge announced the new Dodge eMuscle lineup, fans wondered if that meant the automaker would leave its performance numbers behind. The automaker promises that high-performance muscle cars are here to stay – they just might have an electric motor under the hood.

The 2023 Dodge Hornet backs that up, releasing the first model with a 2.0-liter Hurricane4 Turbo in 2024, able to generate 268 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. For the 2024 model year, Dodge releases the Dodge Hornet R/T Plus and GT Plus, powered by a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine able to deliver 288 horsepower 383 lb-ft of torque and an electric motor powered by a 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery. Now that that’s out of the bag, Dodge wants to celebrate its high-octane roots with the “Last Call” of the HEMI® engine. It’s not just the HEMI-powered trims either - all 2023 Dodge Charger and Challenger models will carry a special commemorative “Last Call” underhood plaque to commemorate the end of an era.

There less than six months to order one of the final all-gasoline Dodge models before they stop production. Ending December 31, 2023, consumers have one last chance to get a current generation 2023 Dodge Charger or Dodge Challenger vehicle. Thankfully, the Dodge Horsepower Locator tool at makes it easy. Consumers can search for “Last Call” models at local dealerships using their zip code and entering the model, special-edition model, and trim level to search for Dodge Challenger and Charger vehicle order availability.
