2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger Get Mopar Special Editions
Say goodbye to these muscle cars with matching limited-production $3995 packages from the factory-backed custom shop.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger might be heading down the road to nowhere, what with production of both muscle cars set to expire by year's end, but Mopar—Dodge's factory-backed parts supplier and servicer—will bid farewell to each with matching special-edition packages.
Called the '23 Mopar Special Edition package, it'll be available on new Challengers and Chargers with the widebody R/T Scat Pack configuration. While the Mopar treatment won't change any of the car's mechanical bits, meaning their 485-hp 6.4-liter Hemi V-8s will be unchanged, it will customize their looks.
Along with Pitch Black paint and black 20-inch wheels, the special-edition Challenger and Chargers both receive matte-black body graphics and Mopar Blue accents seen on the front and rear brake calipers, hood, roof, and trunklid. The latter will be made of carbon fiber, which isn't offered on any production model.
Inside, the '23 Mopar Special Editions come with shiny door sills as well as mats on the floor and in the trunk that feature Mopar logos. Each model also comes with an exclusive Mopar owner's kit that includes a metal certificate of authenticity. It includes a serialized vehicle-build number along with rendering of the car courtesy of Mopar's design team.
Mopar will only build 440 total special editions. With 40 allocated to Canada, that leaves 200 Challengers and 200 Chargers for U.S. customers who will each have to pay an extra $3995 on top of the car's base prices, which are $55,855 and $57,920, respectively. Orders have to be made through individual Dodge dealerships, with production set to start in September and deliveries slated for the following month.
Eric Stafford’s automobile addiction began before he could walk, and it has fueled his passion to write news, reviews, and more for Car and Driver since 2016. His aspiration growing up was to become a millionaire with a Jay Leno–like car collection. Apparently, getting rich is harder than social-media influencers make it seem, so he avoided financial success entirely to become an automotive journalist and drive new cars for a living. After earning a journalism degree at Central Michigan University and working at a daily newspaper, the years of basically burning money on failed project cars and lemon-flavored jalopies finally paid off when Car and Driver hired him. His garage currently includes a 2010 Acura RDX, a manual '97 Chevy Camaro Z/28, and a '90 Honda CRX Si.
