Dodge has tons of crazy colors on offer for the last of the V8s.
If you're a bit out of the loop, Dodge has a lot going on with the Dodge Challenger, and the Charger, for that matter. The brand recently debuted the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV Concept, showcasing the future of the brand. After 2023, both the Charger and Challenger as we know them will be dead. So will the Dodge Hemi V8.
While much of the news cycle surrounding Dodge has focused on the future and the death of its most prominent cars, we've mostly forgotten that there are still regular Challengers and Chargers rolling off the assembly line every day in the Brampton, Ontario, Canada plant. And they come in some amazing colors.
Buried in Dodge's 2023 Chally fact sheet is a full list of all the incredible colors you can order for the Challenger. There are 14, to be exact. While you've got your standard (and boring, if you ask us) run-of-the-mill blacks grays, and whites, there are also a lot of other interesting colors to choose from.
On top of that, some of these colors are what Dodge calls "heritage" colors or shades from models' past. Take B5 Blue, for example, which will also appear on the Charger Super Bee. Other heritage shades include Destroyer Gray and Plum Crazy. We should also note that each of these wild colors is accompanied by a clever name.
Dodge's Hell Raisin' purple is probably the best example, and arguably one of the best colors to get. Other fun names include Go Mango (McLaren-ish orange), Sinamon Stick (deep metallic red/orange), and White Knuckle. Those are the really fun ones, but the rest of the colors have pretty solid names too. Like It's Better Than Blue (blue). Dodge will sell you a Chally in: F8 Green, Frostbite, Granite, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Sublime Green, TorRed, and Triple Nickel, in addition to the above colors. In all, it's a staggering variety. The best part is that Dodge buyers seem to take their pick of the litter. Drag nights at our local speedway look like a Skittles convention from far enough away.
Dodge has also added a few interior choices, all of which are available for 2023. This includes black, black/caramel, black/ruby red, Demonic Red, and Sepia. Colors aside, the Challenger also gets some mild updates for 2023, may of which we were already aware of.
That includes last year's Jailbreak models, which are now available for the Hellcat. Dodge says it did this to offer more customization for buyers. As we discussed above, Dodge has also reintroduced the aforementioned heritage colors. For now, we've still got six special edition Charger and Challenger models that'll all be unveiled before September 21.
