The 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger are expected to make a splash in the muscle car segment. Both models will be equipped with the legendary “Swinger” engine, which makes for a powerful and retro look. The cars will also come with a commemorative “Last Call” plaque on the underhood. This plaque will include a vehicle silhouette as well as the words “Designed in Auburn Hills, California” and “Assembled in Brampton, Ontario.”
The 2023 Dodge Challenger will retain much of its interior design, which takes cues from classic muscle cars. The Challenger’s angled center console, thick-rimmed steering wheel, and large gauges all contribute to its muscle-car appeal. The Challenger also has an excellent cabin space with 33.1 inches of leg room for front and rear passengers. The rear seats fold down and the trunk area is generously-sized.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown is the first of seven “Last Call” editions. Those seven vehicles will be sold in limited quantities. The first six will be available through the end of September 2022, while the seventh will debut at the 2022 Sema Show in early November.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger will continue to offer a wide variety of engines. The V8 engine is available in two versions: standard and supercharged. There is also a six-speed manual transmission option. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack features a widebody kit. The Challenger R/T will come equipped with an adaptive Bilstein shock system.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger will have a unique livery called the “Shakedown” livery. It will feature red and black stripes, with matching upholstery. It will also have crimson seat belts. The livery is also influenced by the Shakedown Concept from 2016. It will feature “Shakedown” badges on the inside of the car. The Shakedown will also feature a Dodge Technology package and carbon fiber trim.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger is expected to come with an optional all-wheel drive. The fully loaded model will cost upwards of $80,000. The prices of the base model will be $38,000. The Scat Pack Widebody variant will cost around $44,000. It will have a Hemi V8 and wide racing stripes. If you are interested in an even more powerful vehicle, consider the Hellcat model. The Hellcat will start at $64,000.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger is expected to be built in both modern and heritage colors. It will come with 20-inch wheels in “Gold School” color and six-piston Brembo brakes. The interior of the car will have wood-like textures. The Dodge Challenger will be sold exclusively through dealerships for the 2023 model year.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger will be the last of its kind and will be replaced by the Charger. While these models will carry over many of the current options, there will be several special edition models that will be sold in the next few years. Some of these models will be equipped with badass electrics and “Last Call” plaques.
