The last "Last Call" Dodge Charger and Challenger were scheduled to be released this week at the 2022 SEMA

These special send-off models from 2023 mark the conclusion of production for the enduring nameplates.

They will be replaced by an all-electric Charger Daytona SRT8 muscle vehicle in 2024 by Dodge.

The final of the Last Call special edition cars, according to Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis, is the most awaited

he said during a SEMA pre-event attended by The Detroit Bureau

Dodge is cooking up something exceptional, which explains why.

 He described the final vehicle as a Hellcat-powered Dodge that would "write history."

In other words, it has more power than the 808 hp 2018 Challenger SRT Demon, the most potent American muscle vehicle ever produced.

But we had some issues, Kuniskis acknowledged at the occasion.

 In the Dodge test lab, the upgraded V8 has been blowing up when pushed to its absolute limit.

 We're not discussing a small collapse here. Evidently, the engines have been literally blowing up.

The fact that the engines burst from heat sort of appeals to us.

However, we are also curious about the modified Hellcat engines that are circulating in the US.

Are the outcomes the same? Or do everyone's Dodges at the nearby drag races operate on stock engines?
