Dodge isn’t done with special Challengers or Chargers
Actually, we don’t know if these are really the last 2023 special editions, of which Dodge has made no fewer than six. But we have to be getting close, right?
The headline runs as follows: “Limited-edition Mopar 2023 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models coming to U.S. and Canada.” Dodge will make 440 cars total, 200 of each model for the U.S., and just 20 apiece for Canada. You folks north of the border need to hustle—or wait for the next limited edition.
This Mopar special edition is a $3995 package for SRT Scat Pack Widebody cars, each of which is powered by an unchanged, 485-horsepower V-8 Hemi. The changes to these Mopar editions are, like those on Chevrolet’s send-off sixth-gen Camaro, strictly cosmetic. Both Mopar ’23 models are available only in Pitch Black Clear Coat with matte-black graphics and blue tracer stripes along the hood, roof, and decklid.
Custom touches include a blue grille badge, blue brake calipers behind forged carbon-black wheels, and Mopar valve-stem caps. An exclusive all-new carbon-fiber decklid spoiler is being used for the first time and is available only on Mopar ’23 models. We like the decklid spoiler, but we’re really geeked about the valve stem caps. The locking lug nuts are a close second.
Your Mopar ’23 owner kit includes a custom-made, personalized metal certificate of authenticity with serialized vehicle-build number, and a special rendering of the vehicle by the Mopar design team. Production starts in September with deliveries expected to begin in October.
Mike Koval, take it away: “Our iconic two-door and four-door muscle cars from Dodge are perfect vehicles to continue our annual tradition of offering exclusive, performance-oriented, low-volume packages of quality-tested, factory-backed performance parts and accessories from the Mopar Custom Shop,” said Koval, head of Mopar North America. “With striking matte black and Mopar Blue accents, both Mopar ’23 models will turn heads and be sought after by performance enthusiasts and collectors alike.”
Yes, like the 2013 Mopar Dodge Dart, and we aren’t making that up. Get ’em now! Or wait for the next last, last, really last-call special edition.
