Dodge’s annual Mopar special editions take on a bittersweet tone, as the Mopar ’23 will be the final time the treatment is applied to the current Challenger and Charger. Both models are set to be discontinued at the end of the 2023 model year.

The Mopar ’23 package starts with the R/T Scat Pack Widebody version of both cars, which packs a 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 engine into a body widened 3.5 inches by color-matched fender flares. The V-8 is linked to a standard six-speed manual transmission in the Challenger and eight-speed automatic on the Charger (the eight-speed auto is optional with the Challenger). Their black clear coats are interrupted by a wide matte-black center stripe with Mopar Blue outlining that stretches from the hood to a carbon-fiber spoiler on the trunk. More Mopar Blue is sprayed onto the brake calipers, which peek out from behind black 20-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero summer performance tires.

The menacing look continues into a black interior with carbon-fiber accents and a suede headliner. A serialized Mopar ’23 badge in the instrument panel is the only special-edition piece inside, and the included Plus Package features heated and ventilated seats and metal pedals. An Alpine sound system is also standard.

The official price tag on the package is $3,995, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see dealers charging as much as they can for these end-of-the-road special editions. Dodge is limiting U.S. allocation to 400 units evenly split between the Challenger and Charger, and buyers will also receive a personalized metal certificate of authenticity and a rendering of the car from the Mopar design team. Deliveries begin in October.
