Dodge is announcing a series of three new security solutions to help protect Dodge Challenger and Charger owners against criminal theft.
The first is an “Enhanced Security Valet Mode” that uses a four-digit code in the radio to limit engine power output to less than 3 horsepower, preventing fast getaways.
Beginning Monday, August 16, the system will be available on request at Dodge dealers as a flash software upgrade, free of charge for 2021 model year Challengers and Chargers with 392-cubic-inch HEMI®
or supercharged Hellcat HEMI engines.
The second feature is a “Key Programming Lockdown” that prevents thieves from programming new key fobs after breaking into a vehicle. The Lockdown feature rollout begins in Q1 2022. When fully implemented, Key Programming Lockdown will be available for 2015-to-current model year Challengers and Chargers with any engine option.
The third solution is a new “Intrusion Module” that activates vehicle alarm systems if it senses glass breakage or vehicle movement. The Intrusion Module will be available on all 2022 model year Dodge Chargers and Challengers.

For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the spirit of brothers John and Horace Dodge. Their influence continues today as Dodge shifts into high gear with muscle cars and SUVs that deliver unrivaled performance in each of the segments where they compete.
Dodge drives forward as a pure performance brand, offering SRT versions of every model across the lineup. For the 2022 model year, Dodge delivers the drag-strip dominating 807-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, the 797-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Redeye, the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, and the Dodge Durango SRT 392, America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV. Combined, these three muscle cars make Dodge the industry’s most powerful brand, offering more horsepower than any other American brand across its entire lineup.
In 2020, Dodge was named the "#1 Brand in Initial Quality," making it the first domestic brand ever to rank No. 1 in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study
(IQS). In 2021, the Dodge brand ranked No. 1 in the J.D. Power APEAL Study
(mass market), making it the only domestic brand ever to do so two years in a row.
