2023 Dodge Challenger: Model Preview & Release Date

Model Preview

We anticipate no major changes to the Dodge Challenger for the 2023 model year. A recent report claims buyers will have just 2 years left to buy the current generation before the brand embraces electrification. While this may involve a Challenger EV or another electric muscle car, the high-performance Hellcat will be discontinued.

With the loss of the Challenger Hellcat, muscle car enthusiasts will lose the ability to buy a gas-burning model capable of between 717 hp and 807 hp depending on trim. Although an EV-powered replacement could be built for performance, the long-running Challenger car lineup will most likely see some significant changes.

Unfortunately, Dodge has not yet released details on what to expect beyond 2023. For now, we expect the 2023 Challenger to be a carryover. The current Challenger generation was introduced for 2008 and remains one of the oldest cars on the market. Nonetheless, the model remains a top seller as a value-oriented model.

Pricing & Release Date

Even though Challenger prices currently start at $31,045 including destination, manufacturer incentives have helped bring that down to the low $20,000 range. A popular "10 per horsepower" rebate deal offered over $8,000 in discounts on well-equipped models, and 0% APR financing has been a recurring Challenger deal.

We estimate a 2023 Challenger release date sometime in late 2022 or early 2023.

The Challenger currently competes with cars like the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. We also find that shoppers consider the 4-door Dodge Charger sedan, which offers similar performance and is often eligible for similar incentives.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
