There is a feeling within the Dodge community that the V8 engines of today are going to skyrocket in value. The most obvious reason is Dodge is going out of the gasoline-focused V8 powertrains business and headed to an electric future. There have been some new reports that though the electrification plans are new, they are going full force into the commitment towards building the brand with EV intentions for each vehicle. The report names Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, as the force behind turning Dodge into the premiere brand among its many options. 

Six All-Electric Vehicles Are Being Made

Dodge is rumored to have as many as “six all-electric vehicles currently in the styling studio in Auburn Hills, Michigan.” There is also news that “at least one, but probably several plug-in hybrids” are slated to be created. Whether this is concept vehicles or the turning of a new leaf for the Dodge brand, the report from The Detroit Bureau has Dodge making big changes. While this news is nothing new, we now have some more light shed on what is expected to change for the brand. The days of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon or even the follow up vehicles in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye or Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, we can expect changes to start showing by next year. Dodge will have no problem doing all the hard work towards its electric future alone. According to another report, the Dodge brand has passed on getting any assistance from Tesla.

The Final Days of Purely Gasoline Driven Muscle?

The 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger will offer a variant of change as the new-generation is expected to show. The other brands under the guidance of Stellantis have already pushed out the latest plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicles in the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and Jeep Wrangler 4xe trim. The best EVs in the world could one day arrive in the form of the greatest muscle cars available; all included from the Dodge brand! Keep in mind that Stellantis has already decided to move the Dodge brand into a new plan that was revealed earlier this month when plans were described, “Between 2025 and 2030, our product range will gradually become purely electric. This will be a radical change,” Stellantis CEO Oilvier Francois. The future is rapidly approaching and our goal is to remain as prepared as we are today at providing our customers with the newest Dodge vehicles.

Dodge Ushering In A New Era For Buyers

Promising clues are being reported about the next steps of the Dodge brand. Dodge has determined to put a check on the V8 era that has advanced since Dodge returned the Dodge Charger muscle car for customers in 2006. During the last fifteen years, we’ve observed the increase of some of the most dominant muscle cars in mass production. The 2021 Dodge Charger and 2021 Dodge Challenger are both striking examples of where the brand currently stands, but what can we expect going ahead as the 2020s are already flying by? Early sales in 2021 saw Dodge move vehicles at a higher rate for the Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger models. This is a promising display that will empower more buyers to join the Dodge brand. So who is joining Dodge lately?

Dodge Growing With Younger Generation

From sales figures, an apparent trend has taken place for several years. Dodge has led the way with sales for the younger buyers. The Dodge brand knows where the future is headed, as the path towards electric vehicles (EVs) is the goal. Dodge is also aware that compared to rivals, they have the youngest buyers compared to other manufacturers like Chevrolet or Ford. Dodge first noted this a couple of years ago but has followed up with more evidence that they sell their vehicles to “the youngest demographic in the industry” according to Dodge. 

The car-buying demographic that presents most of Dodge’s business is diverse including the second-highest quantity of Asian, African Americans, and Latin buyers according to the Head of the Dodge Brand Sales Operations, Matt McAlear. The broad variety of V6 and V8 powertrains included in Dodge vehicles has pushed sales for years and extends to a new crop of buyers. However, the scope of these vehicles might alter with the renewed focus of Stellantis (parent company of Dodge) as they look to offer more fuel-efficient vehicles. 

2021 Has Proved Some Impressive Success

Dodge has seen an increase in sales that should exceed pre-pandemic numbers set in 2019. Dodge had begun to bring the focus away from creating 800 horsepower vehicles like the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. However, there was a promise to continue the SRT (Street Racing Technology) vehicles for the near future. While these are the most impressive vehicles for any owner to want, they aren’t meeting the goal of what the future holds for the Dodge brand and its EV intentions.

“There hasn’t been a date drawn in the sand saying you’ll no longer be able to buy an iron block Hemi anymore, but everybody knows it’s coming and they want to enjoy [the engine] while they can. The replacements are going to be so much more exciting,” stated Matt McAlear, Dodge’s head of sales operations.
