Without a doubt one of the most recognizable vehicles in the automotive industry, both in terms of the car itself and its name, the Dodge Charger has had an incredible run. From 1966 to 1978, then 1981 to 1987 and finally returning in 2005, the Charger has been turning heads for generations. Unfortunately, that has to come to an end, at least in its current form. The 2023 Dodge Charger will be the final of its kind to make it here to Topeka, Kansas. If you’re a true enthusiast or have always wanted one of these incredible performance vehicles, now is certainly your chance.
Stellantis didn’t change a ton for the final run, but models powered by the 345-cubic-inch HEMI engine will feature new 345 badging on the fender, while each and every 2023 Charger will also have underbody badging to signify their nature as part of the Last Call. While each model will be considered part of the Last Call, Dodge is also building seven specific Last Call special edition trim levels. Read more about them to the right.
Which version of the Charger you opt for determines how much power your vehicle will deliver. A 3.6L V6 generates 292 horsepower in the SXT to kick things off, but things ramp up from there. The GT gets a boost to 300 hp, the R/T gets a 5.7L V8 with up to 370 hp, the Scat Pack gets a 6.4L V8 with up to 485 hp, the Hellcat Redeye Widebody gets a 6.2L V8 with up to 797 hp and the Jailbreak models get the same.
As we mentioned, Dodge is creating seven different Last Call special edition trim levels for the final run of the Dodge Charger and Challenger models. For the Charger, this includes the Super Bee, Scat Pack Swinger and King Dayton. The sixth and seventh models have yet to be unveiled, but we expect the seventh to be something special for both models. Check out our blog to see if there have been any updates.
