Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is reported to have delayed their plans of introducing the next generation Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger until the end of this decade. Earlier it was rumoured that both the cars will be renewed for 2018, but according to recent reports, the cars will only be updated after 2020.

It is further reported that when the Charger and Challenger are redesigned for 2021 they will eventually be built upon the FCA's Giorgio platform. Currently underpinning the Giorgio architecture is the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan. Though the platform will need to be stretched and widened for Dodge, the architecture is rigid enough in to pave the way for a future convertible model for Dodge. However, as both the cars get a new platform, FCA is going to axe the production of one of their large sedans, most likely to be the Chrysler 300.

Meanwhile, the American manufacturer plans on maintaining the current generation Challenger and Charger with more special-edition models. Soon the current Challenger will be celebrating a decade of its presence in the market whereas the modern Charger is already in its second generation, although the latest edition is six years old already. FCA aims to keep the fire burning with special editions version of the coupe and the sedan till the new models are launched
