Smaller Dodge Challenger to Potentially Arrive in 2021

Speculations have been swirling about the next generation Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger arriving in 2018. New sources, though, now say that the new generation will not arrive until much later in 2021.

It is expected that the next generation muscle cars will be built on the Alfa Romero chassis platform. This will actually result in a smaller and lighter vehicle. The end result is a car with improved efficiency and performance capabilities.

The news has been met with mixed reactions. Some are unhappy about driving a smaller muscle car, while other relish at the idea of a slimmer and higher-performing Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger.

Insider information has also revealed that while the next-generation muscle cars will not arrive until 2021, there will indeed be minor changes for 2018. Both cars will continue to be built on the same platform, though it will receive a slight powertrain adjustment and some exterior touch-ups.  

Other rumors include the possibility of changes in the engine. Buyers will still likely be able to opt for the standard Pentastar V6 engine and a number of Hemi V8 engines, including the much beloved Hellcat engine. In any case, do not be surprised if there is an extra engine option or two in the coming years.

Keep in mind that these speculations are all rumors and none of it has been confirmed by the Dodge brand or its parent company FCA US LLC. In any case, we will just have to wait and see.
