Since August, Dodge has announced special “Last Call” models for 2023 before the brand goes EV on us. Now, the Auburn Hills-by-way-of-Highland-Park automotive company has just announced that Dodge has opened up ordering for 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger Last Call models.
If you visit DodgeGarage.com, you can use the new Dodge Horsepower Locator online tool to find dealers authorized to order your favorite Last Call Dodge. You can search by ZIP code, model, special-edition and trim level. The Dodge Horsepower Locator also tracks dealership allocations (not inventory), which gives you the ability to see all 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger models still available for ordering from a respective dealership.
“Dodge has been building special-edition muscle cars for the last decade, and we have yet to find an allocation methodology that satisfies everyone. Our new ‘Last Call’ Horsepower Locator isn’t going to satisfy everyone either, but it’s our attempt to take the mystery out of it,” says Dodge brand chief executive officer, Tim Kuniskis. “We’re making the process as transparent as possible, giving enthusiasts the power to search for each 2023 model and trim level allocated to each dealer. Our enthusiasts will have every opportunity to locate the Dodge ‘Last Call’ model they desire.”
So how is that allocation derived? The top 500 dealerships in Challenger and Charger sales qualify, with the top 200 dealers receiving 12 of the special-edition models, the top 201-300 receiving 10 and the top 301-500 receiving six.
In case you have forgotten which 2023 Last Call Dodges have been announced thus far, here’s a list:
- Challenger Shakedown
- Charger Super Bee
- Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swinger
- Charger King Daytona
- Challenger Black Ghost
The seventh and final Last Call model, which was slated to be announced at the SEMA show next week, will instead be announced at a later date. Supply chain issues? Don’t want to disrupt the upcoming election? We can only speculate.
When you order from a dealer with the specified allocation, your Last Call order will be confirmed within 30 days via email, followed by updates to keep you abreast of your car’s production status.
Additionally, Dodge will be expanding the reach of its SRT Jailbreak models, with all 2023 Challenger and Charger SRT models (save Last Call special-editions and Super Stock) being designated Jailbreak models. This includes SRT Hellcats, meaning interested parties can built their own quasi-bespoke SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye Challengers and Chargers. Previously, only Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebodies were the sole Jailbreak models.
And, in even more news, Dodge will be bringing back three “heritage” colors that include B5 Blue, Plum Crazy purple and Sublime green, plus the more modern Destroyer Grey.
