It is anticipated that the 2023 Dodge Challenger will have a brief facelift to wrap up the series before Dodge switches to electric propulsion in 2024. It has a spacious interior that comfortably seats 4 adults and a strong V-8 engine. Let's analyze it using what we anticipate 2023 to bring.
The 2023 release will contain the following with a price range between $30,000 and 80,000 based on the trims for the 2022 Dodge Challenger.
- R/T Scat Pack
- SRT Hellcat
We can confirm that the base engine of the 2023 Dodge Challenger is a 3.6-liter V-6 with, until we're informed otherwise, 303 horsepower because we don't anticipate much changes in this area. It gets roughly 19/30 mpg and has all-wheel drive that is optional. A 5.7-liter or 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 with 16/25 mpg or 15/24 mpg, respectively, is available in the mid-level models. As reports of an electric powertrain gain traction, 2023 might be the last year for the Hellcat engine. It has a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that generates 717-807 horsepower and is said to achieve 26 mpg on the interstate. The 2023 Dodge Challenger is a big car, yet it handles curves rather well.
The Dodge Challenger's reasonably quiet interior and padded seats from 2022 will remain in the 2023 model, but we hope that a few interior options, like dual-zone climate control and heated/ventilated seats, will become standard. There are 3 seats in the back row and 16.2 cubic feet of cargo space (not for all sizes).
The following features are anticipated to become standard on the 2023 Dodge Challenger or be added to the 2022 model:
- Apple carplay/Android auto
- Responsive infotainment system
- Uconnect software
- Optional Alpine audio system
We expect that 2023 will bring about the standardization of some safety features or the addition of a high-clarity rear view camera due to some low visibility difficulties in the 2022 Dodge Challenger.
- Available blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert
- Available adaptive cruise control
- Available automatic high beams
Even though Dodge is discontinuing the V-8 Challenger that we know and love, we're looking forward to a redesign for the 2023 Dodge Challenger. Keep checking back as the release date draws closer for any updates, whether they pertain to the driver-assist system or the specifications.
