Dodge Teases Final “Last Call” Model; Official Reveal March 20th
By now, we assume every gearhead is aware of the end of the Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars. The current 2023 model year serves as the final run of these American performance icons, celebrated by a number of special “Last Call” editions. But of the seven models, only six have been revealed thus far.
The wait for the final build, which was to originally be unveiled at last year’s SEMA show until it was delayed for an early 2023 launch, is finally (almost) over. Dodge is bringing the seventh and final Last Call special edition to their aptly named Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas event, being held, of course, at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 20th, 2023.
To stoke the flames of anticipation even more, Dodge has released another teaser video: “Scream @ 215 mph.” You can watch it, along with the previous teasers, on the official Dodge YouTube channel.
A new teaser teaser video will launch on March 14th, keeping with the pattern of one video a week leading up to the March 20th reveal. If you’re able to make it to Vegas for the in-person reveal, you can buy tickets now; however, you’ll also be able to tune into an official livestream from the comfort of your garage, should you wish to partake virtually.
The title of the teaser sheds a sliver of light onto the final model. For reference, both the 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger can get up to 203 mph if equipped as their available SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody trims, so a 215 mph top speed isn’t out of the question regardless of which model it ends up being. But this is just speculation; you can bet we’ll cover the official reveal right here on MotorWeek.
We’ve reported borderline ad nauseam on Dodge’s final year of the Charger and Challenger models; but can you blame us? It’s the end of an era-- a momentous changing of the guard, so to speak, as these Mopar models ride into the sunset, exhaust echoing out of earshot and tears blurring our eyes.
