No, the Challenger and Charger haven’t been around that long, but the first Dodge cars (and the first American mass-produced all-steel-bodied cars) were produced in 1914. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company founded by John and Horace Dodge, Chrysler is building special editions of these two muscle cars.
Naturally, the 100th Anniversary Editions of the 2014 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger will be available with the legendary HEMI V8 (0-60 in less than 60 seconds), though the Pentastar V6, with its 31 mpg, comes standard. They’ll be set off with special badging, a unique key fob, gorgeous High Octane Red Pearl Coat paint, 20-inch aluminum wheels, and will come with a book celebrating the Dodge brand’s 100 year history. Other paint colours are available, but the High Octane Red is exclusive to the anniversary edition.
The interior will be equally impressive, with Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa leather, Liquid Graphite accents, and more badging. The flat-bottom steering wheel comes with die-cast paddle shifters. You can expect to see these cars in your Dodge dealer in the first quarter of 2014, but numbers are limited so they may not be there long. Pricing won’t be that much higher than the Challenger SRT or Charger SXT Plus. For more details and photos, check out:
