Canada: 2023 Dodge Challenger Fact Sheet

Windsor, Ontario September 1, 2022 - The Dodge Challenger still holds the title as the world’s quickest, fastest and most powerful muscle car. The 807-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock continues to out-perform the competition in the modern horsepower wars. From the most powerful and fastest muscle car – the SRT Super Stock – to 303-horsepower V-6 efficiency and class-exclusive all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability on SXT and GT models, the Challenger meets the wants and needs of a wide range of Dodge performance enthusiasts.

With the industry’s most powerful and capable muscle car lineup, the 2023 Dodge Challenger offers nine distinct models and a full range of engine options, including:
  • The award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 on SXT, SXT AWD, GT and GT AWD models
  • The legendary 345 HEMI® V-8 on R/T models
  • The naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V-8 with a best-in-class 485 horsepower on Scat Pack 392 models
  • The 717-horsepower supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V-8 on SRT Hellcat
  • The supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI high-output V-8 on the 797-horsepower SRT Hellcat Redeye and the 807-horsepower SRT Super Stock and SRT Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak
Dodge answers enthusiast demand with some of the most recognizable high-impact, heritage hues and a wide variety of performance and appearance packages on the Challenger. Jailbreak models unleash full access to the entire palette of Dodge personalization options, and along with available Widebody, 1320, T/A, Shaker, stripes and graphics packages, empower customers to create their own customized Challenger, designed to flaunt legendary Dodge performance attitude straight from the factory.

The Dodge Challenger is unrivaled when it comes to sheer horsepower, performance options and packages, all-weather capability and overall interior roominess. The Challenger is a true GT car and its heritage design, unmatched power and everyday livability make this authentic-yet-modern muscle car even more popular in today’s golden age of muscle than it was back in 1970 and 1971.
