“Dodge Speed Week may be over, but our brand is far from finished in shaking up the muscle car world,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “We’re following up Speed Week reveals of the future of electrified muscle in the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept and our first electrified vehicle in the 2023 Dodge Hornet R/T by announcing six special, commemorative-edition models in a little over a month.”

Dodge is issuing the “Last Call” special-edition models to celebrate the last production 2023 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger gasoline engine vehicles at the Brampton Plant. Six special-edition Challenger and Charger models will be revealed through September 21, 2022. The seventh and final 2023 Dodge model will be revealed at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, scheduled for Nov. 1-4, 2022.

This ‘Last Call’ 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown recreates Dodge Shakedown Challenger concept that debuted at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association or SEMA Show. It follows the original’s black-and-red interior and exterior. The Dodge Challenger Shakedown models will come loaded with content from the Plus Group, Technology Group, Navigation, Carbon/Suede and Dynamics Package (for Challenger R/T Scat Pack).

Information on the Never Lift 24-month road map to the Dodge brand’s future is available at The entire 2023 Charger and Challenger model-year run will be allocated to dealerships all at once, helping customers to identify and secure their cars more easily. Dodge will provide customers a guide for locating their desired Charger or Challenger at, which will include information on all 2023 Charger and Challenger inventory at each Dodge dealership.

Saddened by Gov’t regs eliminating the gasoline segment of auto racing and muscle car buying. As a diehard MOPAR OWNER since my first 1966 Charger with the 426 Hemi in it, I have owned 5 B body Road Runners, a Superbird, 2 Dart Swingers 2 Dodge Super Bees. Plus some I can’t remember right now! Have 2009 Challenger R/T that I ordered in 2009! Long live MOPAR Muscle! Keep up the good work!
