The final special edition 2023 Dodge Challenger will be introduced on March 20, 2023 at the Dodge “Last Call” performance festival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This is the car that was teased under a cover at the Dodge Speed Week event last summer in Detroit before a planned debut at the SEMA Show in November, but when the project was delayed, the SEMA debut was canceled. As it turns out, the final Last Call Dodge will debut in Sin City, but at a unique, standalone event rather than at the massive SEMA Show.
“The Dodge ‘Last Call’ event will be a celebration of Dodge performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “While the ‘Last Call’ special-edition model we will reveal at Las Vegas and the electrified Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept represent different performance eras for our brand, both are linked by a commitment to delivering the Brotherhood of Muscle a vehicle that drives like a Dodge, looks like a Dodge and sounds like Dodge. No matter the era, Dodge will always be about muscle, attitude and performance, and that’s what this event will celebrate.”
Of course, the other Last Call Dodge vehicles will be on display, providing attendees with a chance to check out the Challenger Shakedown, Charger Super Bee, Challenger and Charger Swinger, Charger King Daytona and Challenger Black Ghost, along with the mysterious seventh car. All we know is that the vehicle used to tease the SEMA Show debut was obviously a Challenger and Tim Kuniskis hinted that it would be an instant legend, but information from our contacts on the inside suggest that it will be powered by a 6.2-liter engine with a 3.0-liter supercharger and the ability to run on ethanol blend- likely leading to more than 900 horsepower.
In addition to the frenzy of Hemi-powered Dodge muscle cars, the brand will offer attendees a look at the future with the all-electric Charger Daytona SRT Concept, but it will be more than just cars on display. There will be plenty of drag racing on the track, thrill rides, a car show, celebrity appearances and more. Frankly, it kind of sounds like a version of Roadkill Nights by Dodge being held in Vegas, and we like the sound of that.
There is no other information available on the Dodge “Last Call” performance festival in Las Vegas, but as we learn more, you will find it here on Stellpower.
