We’re just a few weeks away from the conclusion of the current-generation Dodge Charger and Challenger production. For those seeking a piece of the “last call” models, several special edition models remain. However, for those in pursuit of something rare, there’s the 2023 Dodge Charger and Challenger Mopar ’23 Edition.
Based on the Challenger and Charger R/T Scat Pack Widebody vehicles, these special-edition models showcase unique, performance-oriented looks inside and out, destined to captivate performance enthusiasts and collectors alike. With only 220 units of each model being produced, including a mere 20 units for the Canadian market, the Mopar ’23 lineup is even rarer than the popular Charger King Daytona and Challenger Black Ghost models.
The Mopar ’23 Challenger and Charger models will be available exclusively in Pitch Black Clear Coat, featuring distinctive matte-black graphics and eye-catching Mopar Blue tracer stripes adorning the hood, roof, and decklid. A bespoke Mopar Blue grille badge further accentuates the bold exterior appearance, and Mopar Blue brake calipers complement forged carbon-black wheels and Mopar valve stem caps. Notably, an all-new carbon-fiber decklid spoiler is debuting solely on the Mopar ’23 models, adding a touch of sophistication and aerodynamic prowess.
Under the hood, the Mopar ’23 Challenger and Charger boast the powerful 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI® V8 engine, delivering best-in-class 485 naturally aspirated horsepower. For driving purists, the Mopar ’23 Challenger offers the revered Tremec 6-speed manual transmission as standard. In contrast, the proven TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission is available on the Mopar ’23 Challenger and comes standard on the Mopar ’23 Charger.
Both models feature the Standard Widebody Package with a host of performance upgrades to complement the impressive powertrain. These include 20-inch x 11-inch forged-aluminum wheels finished in Carbon Black, body-color fender flares that add 3.5 inches of width to accommodate Pirelli P Zero 305/35ZR20 summer performance tires, and an SRT-tuned Widebody competition suspension with Bilstein three-mode adaptive damping, ensuring maximum grip and speed in every corner.
The interior of the Mopar ’23 models offers a blend of sportiness and refinement. Each vehicle will bear a serialized Mopar instrument-panel badge, signifying its unique status. The Alpine Audio Group ensures a premium sound experience, while the Carbon Suede Interior Package adds real carbon fiber accents and a suede headliner for an elevated ambiance.
Moreover, the Plus Package content includes Scat Pack logos on the back of black Nappa/Alcantara material combination seats, a heated, flat-bottom, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power tilt/telescoping steering column, heated and ventilated front seats, premium stitched dashboard panel, bright pedals, and Mopar locking lug nuts. The Mopar Interior Appearance Group includes bright door sills and premium floor and trunk mats with Mopar logos for additional flair.
Their limited production further amplifies the exclusivity of the Mopar ’23 Challenger and Charger models. Only 220 units of each model will be available, with 200 vehicles allocated for the U.S. market and just 20 for Canada. Each buyer will receive a coveted Mopar ’23 owner kit, comprising a custom-made, personalized metal certificate of authenticity with a serialized vehicle-build number, accompanied by a unique vehicle rendering by the Mopar design team.
