Dodge Unveils 100th Anniversary Charger and Challenger

100th anniversary challenger and charger

Nearly 100 years ago, master car builders John and Horace Dodge introduced the first automobile to bear their name, the famed Dodge Brothers Model 30. To mark the historic achievement, we are introducing two special editions for 2014: the 100th Anniversary Dodge Charger and 100th Anniversary Dodge Challenger.

 

The auto industry has seen constant change and reinvention over the past century, and today we are celebrating a century of the Dodge Brothers’ style and ingenuity through world-class power and performance, innovative technology features and bold muscle-car styling with commemorative design details.

 

The Charger gets very special treatment for the 100th Anniversary. You can choose between two fully equipped versions: a Pentastar® V-6–powered model based on the Charger SXT Plus, and a HEMI® V-8 model based on the Charger R/T Plus. Both include all of the following features:

 

- Beats Premium Audio™
- Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa leather with brass stitching interior
- Custom cloud overprint on the seats, center console and door armrests
- Die-cast “Dodge, est. 1914”  badges on the seatbacks
- 20–inch polished aluminum wheels with granite crystal pockets and “100” center caps

The 100th Anniversary Challenger, also offered in both Pentastar V-6 and HEMI V-8 versions, includes an equally extensive list of features, including:

 

- Nappa leather trim
- Unique stitching and badging
- Striking 20–inch wheels
- Premium Boston Acoustics audio
- Granite Crystal grille surround with script “Challenger” badge

Both the 100th Anniversary Edition Charger and Challenger are equipped with:

 

- Premium Berber Floor Mats with Embroidered 100th Anniversary logo
- Performance flat bottom steering wheel
- 100th anniversary key fob
- 100th anniversary fender badging
- 100th anniversary splash screens on the Uconnect® touchscreen
- Offered in High Octane Red Pearl coat, along with traditional colors

 
“The Dodge Charger and Challenger are the perfect foundation to celebrate 100 years of Dodge style and performance,” says Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand president and CEO. “Over the last century, the Dodge brand has seen its biggest success when we’ve combined head-turning designs with ingenious engineering and world-class performance. These two iconic muscle cars do all of that and more. They represent the Dodge brand’s heart and soul.”

 

Both cars are scheduled to appear in Dodge showrooms during the first quarter of 2014. Which 100th Anniversary model would you like to see in your garage? Be sure to tell us in the comments below.

    If the dealers don’t get greedy on this, it will be a fantastic package! Love the colour, nice interior upgrades, and some pretty cool hoops! What’s not to like?

  • redneckdakota

    the challenger would do nicely thanks! how about putting in a square steering wheel like what was in the “63-64 Chryslers and imperials, there are a ton of great stuff that mopar was famouse for that you could incorporate in these special editions, and what about the dart? a swinger maybe, or the gts!

  • Chrystal Shadburn

    I’ll take the Challenger, thank you!

  • I’mAnIdiot

    I hope they cease production after making these one for at least 10 Years.

  • sailordude

    Seems like the Challenger is a car that will stay relevant for decades of ownership.

  • BadBob

    Can I order a 100th Anniversary Challenger RT now? And is the Radar Red interior color available?

  • Marcia Pitchford

    I have a 2013 Charger but I think I may have to have this one instead!

  • AKJain

    Uff.. they are both amazing!.. Charger please, V6 will do. My 02 Intrepid R/T just kicked the bucket :(

  • renzo440

    I think both cars are beautiful. I just wish someone at Chrysler would realize that many people like interior choices other than various shades of black. Just take a look at the Chrysler 300 M interiors. They were light and bright! I have four Mopars, but the interior color choices of the newer models are indeed lacking!
    I would have purchased an SRT 8 Challenger in 2008, but all I could order for the interior color was black.

    Dodge is missing the point with restyling the Charger- does not look ANYTHING like the Charger of old. Too bad. But that being sald, somebody at Dodge had the smarts not to mess with the Challenger- my dream car since the early 70s. Finally got it- a preowned 2012 Redline Pearl SXT in pristine condition. Love it, love it. Did I mention I’m 76?

    • ScottAnd

      I certainly hope its in pristine ,Its only a 2012

    • George

      I have a 2013 Dodge Charger in Red Chrystal Pearl. I really like this car. This is my first Chrysler product since a 1937 Plymouth. I chose it over the Camaro. I have you beat on the age, I am 78. My license is “CHARGER”. I have added graphics to it and it gets thumbs up all the time.

  • Brett Burnell

    How about a manual tranny option for the Charger please?!

  • Mopar 324

    If you make me choose Chargah please. 5.7 please. If I could only part with my Mopar 11 chargah I’d take that in red now! But really its like picking a Victoria secret model. Yeah you’d pick one but there isn’t a bad one.

  • VIP

  • NVRNTRL

    I love my ’11 Charger RT Max. My first car was a ’68 Charger, my second a ,69 Charger RT. I have missed those cars, but I have to say I like the 4 doors. When we go to lunch, I never get complaints from the guys who sit in back and I seem to be the one who gets to drive a lot. I am not sure I could part with my ’11 yet.

  • coppers2

    Well the charger v/8 RT model is out of the box faster than lightning but i did not read anything at all about the all wheel drive version of the 100 yr anniversary edition. please advise if I am wrong.

  • Karl Kirchner

    For a 100th anniversary I don’t see anything really unique or special. (a 100th anniversary key fob,,, sheesh) How about working on pricing and making it affordable.

  • Jarett Reynolds

    I have a 2012 charger SE, Grey on Black and although the SE models are not suppose to go as fast as the R/T or SR/T mine can surley keep up. This 100th Anniversary charger is sweet, even better if they change the color to Black or Grey. DOWN WITH CHEVY CAMARO’S!

  • billyboy

    Love the deep red color for the 100th. Bought a like new 2012 Charger RT Plus couple months ago in Redline Tri-Coat Pearl. Love it. Guess I really am in my second childhood (71) like my kids say. First car 66 Mustang – ok BUT, then I bought a 68 Plymouth GTX 440 Magnum. WOW! I ran out of highway before I could top it out. Been a Mopar fan ever since. My Charger almost as much fun – almost. Would have gone the Challanger route but 4 doors more practical since my friends aren’t that limber anymore. Agree that interior needs some serious color updates, dull black don’t do it.

  • Scarlett

    personally speaking….I’m the proud owner of a 2007 Dodge Charger SXT and out of all the vehicles I’ve had I would definitely choose my Charger over anything else! I’m very pleased of the gas mileage I get and love the sleek look of the new 100th Anniversary model Charger!!! Thank you Dodge for creating an absolutely beautiful car and giving me a wonderful driving experience!!

  • Gila Monster

    jediknight – Mine’s a 2013 Challenger in Inferno Red Crystal Pearl ( what a mouthful)!! You’ve got me in the age, though, I’m only 75. But my license plate reads “21 AGAIN”

  • Scruffeone

    Looks like I’ll be trading in my 2013 Charger Daytona….dammit!

  • Terry_hemi

    I’ve had a MOPAR in my garage every year I’ve been old enough to drive. I’ve had everything from a 1973 ‘Cuda up to a 2006 Charger HEMI R/T. Even my company car is a Charger SE! I’m creeping up on retirement and will continue to keep the horses in my garage MOPAR! Can’t wait for the 2015 Barracuda!

  • Jayson68

    I had a ’73 Challenger with a 360, Love the styling and was happy to see the newest Challenger look strikingly similar. My wife and I are looking forward to owning a pre-owned green SRT8 with a turbo or supercharger. We own a 13 Ram HEMI and 13 Durango love them both. Jayson 33

  • Bear Botsford

    I bought a 2009 Challenger RT , black in and out and I love it. I am interested in your new version. If I do buy one I will still keep the 2009. Keep making quality vehicles. Dodge is #1.

  • Josh

    i believe that the SRT models should not have the same engines, since its like an inside competition. the 6.1 motors are good but the 6.4s are better but the same motor in all not so much just my opinion.

  • justtofast

    I bought a #’d 2008 SRT #1810 Black Challenger Love the car! The dealers will try and get every dime you have though to own one. When I bought my car you put a bid in for it. More than likely it will be the same to be able to own he 100th anniversary model. WHAT A SHAME!!!

  • Al66Dart

    What about the Dart ?

  • Tinman

    I just picked up my 100th anniversary challenger in white awesome car love the pistol grip shifter for the 6 speed and the very clean lines of this car all i can say here is she is fast !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jesus

    I just purchased the 2014 anniversary Challenger and I have to say it does not disappoint. Very pleased with the purchase.
