How long before Ford follows suit:


Dodge no longer producing after ‘23 which makes the R’a future suspect.

Didn't specifically mention the TRX, so it has less impact on the R. Since Challenger and Charger are built for speed, which is more easily replaced with electric than range and towing like you'd want in a truck, it makes more sense. Not sure it's a great idea since people still want V8s in their muscle cars.

The better question is, while Ford follow suit with the Mustang? They already have the Mach-E and it doesn't really seem to be a replacement for GT. I would guess Ford will look the 4 cyl version hybrid as the next step.

Dodge is following the Dodge pattern. Jam a giant engine into anything and everything, sell the shit out of it for a year or two, discount the hell out of it, and then stop production. Do you think that Ford will be following the Ford pattern or the Dodge pattern?

Ford tries to pivot to the Tesla pattern
