All models will get a Final Call plaque under the hood.
Dodge is well aware that its upcoming Last Call model will sell out rapidly. It recently disclosed the prices of the six special edition models it has revealed so far, as well as an online portal that will help customers find these cars.
It seems 2023 is going to be a good year for Dodge as it gets rid of all V8 models. Nearly all 2023 models, including the normal V6 and V8 models we'll get to shortly, have already been allocated to dealers. Getting your hands on a Last Call seems like an impossible task, which means a lot of people will have to settle for a normal car.
But thanks to the 2023 model year upgrades, a "normal" Challenger or Charger no longer exists. Technically, every 2023 model is a Last Call.
All 2023 models will get at least one proper Last Call feature. Every model will carry a special commemorative "Last Call" underhood plaque, which immediately adds value to even the most basic V6 model.
The brushed aluminum underhood plaque features the vehicle name and a vehicle silhouette, as well as "Designed in Auburn Hills" and "Assembled in Brampton." While this little plaque is nowhere near as excellent as the Black Ghost and its gator skin roof, it still goes a long way toward making these cars feel special. It's Dodge's way of giving each 2023 model a salute as it tragically waves goodbye to the V8 engine.
Dodge is also bringing back three famous heritage colors: B5 Blue, Plum Crazy purple, and Sublime green. Plum Crazy was particularly popular. The beloved purple made its debut in 1970 and was brought back in 2014 in limited numbers. In 2016, it was added to the color palette. One of Dodge's popular modern colors, Destroyer Grey, is also returning.
The Charger and Challenger will be available in 14 exterior hues. 2023 Charger and Challenger R/T models will also feature new "345" fender badging, a reference to the 345 cubic-inch Hemi engine you'll find under the hood.
Dodge did not refer to power upgrades, so the 3.6 V6 produces 303 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque, which is suitable for a 0-60 mph sprint in 6.5 seconds. The R/T upgrades to a 5.7-liter V8 that produces 372 hp and 400 lb-ft with a six-speed automatic and 375 hp and 410 lb-ft with an eight-speed.
The R/T Scat Pack models (also available with Widebody) get the 6.4-liter V8, good for 485 hp and 475 lb-ft.
Price-wise, you can expect to pay $30,545 for a Challenger SXT and $33,845 for a GT. Add $3,000 to the price for AWD. The R/T comes with an MSRP of $39,385, while the 6.4 R/T Scat Pack costs $45,845. A Charger SXT goes for $32,645, and upgrading to a GT will cost $35,345. The R/T costs $42,385, increasing to $48,745 for the R/T Scat Pack.
