Dodge will start the seventh and final “Last Call” race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 20, 2023 and the final celebration for the current Dodge Charger and Challenger will be a bittersweet occasion. Dodge will unveil its “Last Call” trim lineup there, that is to say, the Challenger and Charger trims will soon no longer offer a series of seven limited-edition cars.

One of the ferocious V-8s and its special editions will be a Charger Super Bee, while the other will be a Challenger Shakedown. The company is also getting ready to introduce two “Swinger” vehicles for the Charger and Challenger lineups as a swift nod to the namesake’s legendary origin. The Charger King Daytona and the Challenger Black Ghost are dynamic, Hellcat-carrying creatures that Mopar fanatics can even catch a glimpse of. The series’ climax will include a record-breaking Challenger who might be strong enough to overshadow the Speed Demon. The seventh and final car is probably the one that people are most looking forward to. As with the rest, it will make reference to another aspect of the Dodge muscle car heritage, but, the company hasn’t provided any additional details.

Marking the End of an Era

Many readers might be perplexed as to why Dodge is discontinuing so many well-liked trims. The carmaker thinks it’s time to abandon internal combustion engines in favor of an electrified future, which is why. But do not worry. The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger won’t be available in their current HEMI-engine-powered configurations after 2023, but they could return as electric cars.

At the event in Las Vegas, the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept will be fully on show, highlighting Dodge’s dedication to electrification. The coupe is intended to change people’s perspectives of what a muscle automobile is capable of. Tim Kuniskis, the chief executive officer of the Dodge brand, “The Dodge ‘Last Call’ event will be a celebration of Dodge performance. While the ‘Last Call’ special-edition model we will reveal at Las Vegas and the electrified Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept represent different performance eras for our brand, both are linked by a commitment to delivering the Brotherhood of Muscle: a vehicle that drives like a Dodge, looks like a Dodge, and sounds like a Dodge.”

Dodge’s CEO is not exaggerating when he claims that the brand wants to improve rather than do away with the muscle car experience because the Daytona SRT is rumored to use an 800-volt electrical system named Banshee. Although the brand claims that it will be more agile than a Hellcat, the public is still unaware of the powertrain’s characteristics.

The Beginning of Something New

Even while some Dodge models will be discontinued and the automaker is leaning toward producing electric cars, it doesn’t seem like the company wants customers to start lamenting the muscle car just yet. On the other hand, the new Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept was developed to carry on Dodge’s daring legacy and expand toward the future of electrified muscle.

Although the event will undoubtedly center on vehicles, families are encouraged to attend. Drag racing on The Strip at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, a Dodge vehicle show, an after-event afterglow, Dodge Thrill Rides, and celebrity appearances are all part of the performance extravaganza. At, interested visitors can even watch the event through livestream.

The Dodge Daytona SRT Concept is still just an idea, but Dodge has a knack for producing brash-looking automobiles, and if it drives as brazenly as it looks, the future appears bright.
