Dodge is revealing the first of the brand’s “Last Call” lineup of seven special-edition 2023 models, drawing a line back to 2016 to celebrate an iconic Dodge concept vehicle with the special-edition 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown pays tribute the original Dodge Shakedown Challenger concept, which shook up the display floor when unveiled at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. The special-edition 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown follows the original’s theme of a black-and-red interior and exterior that fuses a modern and vintage feel.
Dodge “Last Call” special-edition models celebrate the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, which in their current form are coming to an end. Six special-edition Challenger and Charger models will be revealed through September 21, 2022. The seventh and final 2023 Dodge model — the very last of its kind — will be revealed at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, scheduled for Nov. 1-4, 2022.
“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.”
