Sad times. Will be interesting to see how the brand survives the future since everything on the market will basically have the same contents. Vanilla. Boring. Can exciting brands find a way to stay relevant? Let's see how smart the Dodge boys are....
Well this Challenger has been around much longer and has enjoyed much greater success then the old one ever did. So even if it goes away it will have left a lasting mark on history.

It doesn't seem so odd if the plant isn't going to produce that product anymore after 2023. As far as Ford is concerned, this isn't the first time Mopar has dumped V8s for turbo engines while GM and Ford didn't. This crap about emissions doesn't hold up IMHO either. I believe it has to do with cost pure and simple. This "great" six can be produced on any line that makes the 4 cyl engine, so in the end their costs will be less. If they stay in heavier duty trucks, they might keep a Hemi, or they will ignore that market like they did in the 80s once again. I wouldn't put it past them using it in the 2500-5500 trucks either.

What else would replace a Hellcat? Not a six cylinder that's for sure. An electric car? It'd better be one hell of a car then.

Everyone has been saying that the Hemi going away has to do in part because of regulations. Well that obviously not true because Ford is still doing development on V8s in the future. So one would tend to believe then, it's spin for their illustrious six cylinder dream mill and the heck with the Hemi.
