Challenger Shakedown: homage to a “classic-based concept”

It’s Dodge’s “last call” for 392 and Hellcat cars, and the latest special edition celebrates a retroconcept—the original Dodge Shakedown Challenger concept shown at the 2016 SEMA show. The new special-edition 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown keeps the black-and-red interior and exterior, using a modern Challenger as its base.
