Dodge Reveals the Rare Challenger Shakedown; Announces its 1 of 7 ‘Last Call’ Special-edition Models

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.

Dodge has announced its first of seven cars as part of its “Last Call” lineup for 2023 special-edition models, starting with the 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown.

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown will pay tribute to the original Shakedown concept that was first debuted at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. The 2023 Shakedown stays true to the original model’s black/red color theme in both the interior and exterior.

Dodge’s “Last Call” special-edition models will serve as the final swan song to the current generation of the Charger and Challenger before making room for the fully-electric BEV models expected to debut in 2023. The other six “Last Call” models will be revealed periodically through September 21st, 2022, and the final special-edition model will be on display at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas from November 1st to November 4th, 2022. 

“Dodge Speed Week may be over, but our brand is far from finished in shaking up the muscle car world,” says Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand CEO. “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.”

There will only be 1,000 individual Dodge Challenger Shakedowns being produced with 500 of them as the Dodge Challenger Shakedown R/T Scat Pack in Destroyer Grey, and the Dodge Challenger Shakedown R/T Scat Pack Widebody in Pitch Black.

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown special-edition model will also include a plethora of unique features incuding:

  • Legendary cold-air-grabbing Mopar Shaker hood
  • Mopar Shaker intake
  • “Shaker” underhood decal
  • Red “392” fender graphics
