The 2023 Dodge Challenger is available in five main trims: SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and R/T Scat Pack Widebody. You’ll find a commemorative plaque under the hood of each Challenger, indicating that this model year is the last of the third generation. Dodge is also set to release seven special editions to celebrate the last of this generation, including Swinger, Shakedown, and Last Call.

Exterior color options include Sublime Green, B5 Blue, and Plum Crazy. A new “345” badge on the front fender of all R/T trims honors the HEMI engine under the hood. Features include 18-, 19-, or 20-inch wheels; functional hood scoop; dual-snorkel hood; and fender flares, depending on trim. You can also get fog lights, LED brake lights, daytime running lights, and turn signals integrated into the side mirrors.

Engine options for the 2023 Dodge Challenger include a 3.6-liter V-6 for 303 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque on the base model. Moving up trims opens up more powerful options, such as the 5.7-liter V-8 that delivers 372 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque with the automatic transmission or 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque with the six-speed manual.

You can also get a 6.4-liter V-8 for 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque or a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that produces 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. An upgraded version of the 6.2-liter engine gets 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, while an even further upgraded version of the same machine can get you 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque.

2023 Dodge Charger

You can purchase the 2023 Dodge Charger in five trims: SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, and Scat Pack Widebody. The Charger offers similar features to the Challenger, a four-door version of the muscle car. Exterior features include heated outside mirrors, fog lights, functional hood scoop, 17- or 20-inch wheels, and flared fenders, depending on the trim.

You also have many engine options on the 2023 Charger, starting with a 3.5-liter V-6 that delivers 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. A 5.7-liter V-8 will get you 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque, while the 6.4-liter V-8 garners 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. A supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 produces 717 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to get you to the front of the pack faster. Finally, a further supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 delivers an astonishing 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque.

2023 Dodge Durango

Rumor is that the SRT Hellcat will return to the lineup for the 2023 Dodge Durango, giving you six to choose from, including SXT, GT, R/T, Citadel, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat. Standard features include LED headlights and fog lights, 18-inch wheels, heated outside mirrors, and roof rails with cross bars. Moving up trims adds a power liftgate, 20-inch wheels, chrome exterior trim, and a Trailer Tow Group IV.

We expect Dodge to stick with the current 3.6-liter V-6 that delivers 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, letting you tow up to 6,200 pounds. You could choose a 5.7-liter V-8 for 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Alternatively, a 6.4-liter V-8 will produce 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The SRT Hellcat will feature a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V-8 to get you 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque.

2023 Dodge Hornet

The 2023 Dodge Hornet, a small fuel-efficient crossover SUV, is a newcomer to the Dodge lineup. The Dodge Hornet will be available to start in just one trim: GT. Launching in late spring 2023, you’ll also see the R/T added to the lineup, with the possibility of other embellishments added.

The GT features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 265 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The R/T is a plug-in hybrid version with a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder that gets 288 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque when paired with the 90-kWh motor. You’ll also get an estimated 30 miles of all-electric range on a full charge for the R/T with the 15.5-kWh battery pack.

Dodge Interior Design

The interior of every Dodge vehicle reflects the comfort and convenience drivers and passengers expect from Dodge. 

You’ll find features such as dual-zone or three-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, USB ports, a six-speaker sound system, satellite radio, keyless entry with push-button start, and an 8.4-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on most base models for Dodge. 

Higher trims add features such as heated and ventilated power-adjustable front seats, a heated steering wheel, a Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless phone charging, a navigation system, upgraded stereo systems, and a 10.1-inch touch screen.

Dodge Safety Features

Dodge knows how essential safety and driver-assistance features are to today’s drivers when selecting a new vehicle, so each Dodge model comes packaged with plenty to offer. Standard features include a high-strength frame and an advanced airbag system. The Durango also offers a blind-spot monitor with a normal rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors.
