Allpar says production ends in 2014. Copy/Paste doesn't show it, but the thread below actually crosses out the 2016 end date. Apparently they now think 2014 is the final year. Go to this link and you'll see where they cross out the "or 2016."
"Challenger is to run through model year 2014 or 2016 with minimal changes, ending production in the summer of 2014. The supercharged 6.2 Hemi is now thought to be arriving in 2014. "
Amazing how they predict this yet we don't know much about 2013 MY updates let alone 2014. Dodge is the best at keeping things hush hush and it sucks. No excitement building like you get with Ford or Chevy.
In the 300/Charger tab, the 6.2L is said to arrive in 2015. That is also when it is to move to a smaller platform. It would make sense for the Barracuda to arrive for 2015 along with the new 6.2L SC Hemi. The original plan was for the Challenger to run through 2014 anyway.
This is what I don't get. Why do they have to kill the challenger just to revive it as a barracuda? Why can't they just redesign the challenger and move it to the smaller platform? Does the challenger have a bad reputation or something? This just feels like the work of a marketing team. Same car, same idea, new platform ....
