The Dodge Challenger Shakedown is the First of the Last Call Editions

The first Last Call special edition of the 2023 Dodge Challenger is the Shakedown, based on the R/T Scat Pack.

  • Dodge announced 7 special editions of the Challenger to commemorate its retirement after 2023

  • Only 1,000 units of the Shakedown will be produced

  • It features red and black stripes on the outside, with matching accents inside

Dodge already unveiled the first of the Last Call special edition Chargers and Challengers that will be released throughout the month of September to commemorate the end of production for the current generation of the muscle cars.

This first model is the Challenger Shakedown, which is inspired by a 2016 concept of the same name. This special edition wears a unique graphics package that includes a narrow red stripe and three black stripes of increasing width.

These stripes are positioned to the left of the middle and they run all the way from the beginning of the hood to the rear spoiler. Red Brembo brake callipers, a distinctive spoiler graphic and red 392 fender badges complete the external changes.

Inside, the same colours are used, which means the black Nappa leather seats receive red stitching and red seatbelts while the dashboard displays a “Shakedown” badge.

A number of options are included from the factory, which means that all Challenger Shakedown models will be equipped with a heated steering wheel, a power-adjustable steering column, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, carbon fibre accents with microsuede inserts in the seats, among others.

This special edition is based on the R/T Scat Pack, which means that it is powered by the 6,4L V8 engine with a choice of a manual or an automatic transmission.

Not everyone will be able to own one of these Challengers since Dodge decided to limit production to only 1,000 units, half of which will receive the widebody kit available on other Challenger models.

Dodge has yet to announce the price for this special edition, but they could be considerably more expensive than the regular-production R/T Scat Pack and Scat Pack Widebody, which currently carry an MSRP of about $52,000 and $62,000 respectively in the United States.
