Until then – with a refresh slated for 2018 – the American muscle cars will stay unchanged, which is stretching the Challenger’s lifecycle well beyond the industry standard as it was initially introduced in 2008.

And here’s the Australian impact – Automotive News and Road & Track are both claiming the Chrysler 300 will be terminated when the all-new Challenger and Charger are launched.
Keeping the Charger and Challenger current until the all-new Giulia-based versions arrive will be a series of special editions – such as the V6 all-wheel-drive Challenger which is just about ready to launch and a wide-body Challenger Hellcat.
As well, the stiffer Alfa Romeo Giulia platform is tipped to be the conduit for an all-new convertible – Dodge has teased such a car previously – which the reports claim could see the return of the iconic ‘Barracuda’ nameplate.
