Dodge Challenger, Charger: Electrified replacements coming "in the next decade"

The current Dodge Challenger and Charger are old. The chassis on which they're based is 13 years old, to be precise, meaning they're proper dinosaurs in the fast-moving automotive world. They won't stay that way forever, though.
