Dodge Makes the Last Call With the 2023 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger

Of the seven new 2023 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger special edition models, the last one will signal the end of an era

  • There will be seven new special edition models for 2023.

  • All 2023 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger will feature a “Last Call” underhood plaque.

Automakers don’t typically celebrate the end of a successful model line – Dodge isn’t exactly a typical automaker. And the Charger and Challenger certainly defy conventions. This is why Dodge will pay homage to these muscle cars with seven special edition models, sure to titillate enthusiasts, as the Last Call.

How successful you might ask? Since the modern-day Charger was launched in 2005, the Brampton Assembly Plant has assembled 3 million Dodge vehicles, for a grand total of a billion horsepower. We are talking about the legendary Demon, Hellcat, Redeye, Scat Pack, Shaker, and Jailbreak Hellcat-powered cars. This is reason to celebrate.

“We are celebrating the end of an era — and the start of a bright new electrified future — by staying true to our brand,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “At Dodge, we never lift, and the brand will mark the last of our iconic Charger and Challenger nameplates in their current form in the same way that got us here, with a passion both for our products and our enthusiasts that drives us to create as much uniqueness in the muscle car community and marketplace as possible.”

This is why Dodge will introduce seven special edition models to commemorate the history of the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. Each of these models connects to an iconic Dodge model from the past, reaching back to the dawn of the muscle-car era in the 1960s and 1970s. Details and specific information on six of the vehicles will be released later this year. Although we’re curious to see what Dodge has up its sleeve, it’s the seventh and final model we really want to know more about.

The final 2023 Dodge model will be the last of its kind and will be revealed at the 2022 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, scheduled for November 1-4, 2022.

Part of the 2023 model year party will be the return of three beloved heritage exterior colors: B5 Blue, Plum Crazy purple, and Sublime green. As well, 2023 Charger and Challenger R/T models will also feature new “345” fender badging, a callout to the 345-cubic-inch HEMI engine under the hood.

There’s much more to come, including the Jailbreak model becoming available for the  Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat, and we’ll be sure to cover it.
