A recent report cites Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis as stating unequivocally that all Hellcat models will be dead after the 2023 model year.
We've known for some time that the Hellcat's end was drawing near. Earlier this year, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said as much but the exact end was still ambiguous. Now, it's narrowed down to a model year – 2023 to be specific. Considering 2022 models are just around the corner, the Hellcat's last ride will be upon us before we know it.
That is, provided a recent report from Motor Authority is accurate. We have no reason to believe it isn't, as Dodge boss Kuniskis is once again cited as the source for this latest information. We've contacted Dodge for direct confirmation and we'll update this article with a statement if we receive one, but there's little reason to doubt 2023 as the final year for Hellcat models.
The Durango Hellcat will be gone; it was always intended as a one-and-done model anyway. In August we reported about Kuniskis stating Dodge's new electric muscle car would arrive in 2024. When you line everything up, 2023 becomes an obvious conclusion.
