As the gasoline-powered Dodge Challenger and Charger near the end of the strip, the brand is giving the muscle cars one last dance on asphalt with a collection of Last Call special editions and new Jailbreak customization options.
The long-running Challenger and Charger muscle cars will roll down the line for the last time in 2023 at Stellantis' Brampton Assembly in Ontario, ahead of a new generation of electric performance planned for 2024, which the brand previewed with the Charger Daytona SRT Concept.
Dodge on Thursday revealed details of the six special edition cars, including two that top $100,000, with shipping, and said a seventh will be announced at a later date. It had planned to announce the seventh model at the SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas next week but ran into some issues in testing.
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis told reporters engineers had "blown up" a number of engines in the process of adding more power to the car.
"Quite frankly, we ran into some problems," Kuniskis said. "I think it's going to be OK if we don't blow up any more."
