Dodge launches a commemorative edition of the challenger honoring 50 years of the car
To celebrate the semicentennial of the Dodge Challenger this year, last November the muscle car brand announced a Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition. Available in seven of Dodge’s high impact colors, Dodge said production would be limited to 1,960 cars, offering seven color options with 70 units made for each.
Fortunately for those who missed it, the American automaker is now doubling down on the semicentennial celebrations with yet another special version, this time dubbed the Commemorative Edition, with three trims available: R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and the R/T Scat Pack Widebody.
The Commemorative car is nearly identical to the Anniversary car. Outside, that means a Satin Black, hand-painted hood and black-wrapped roof and decklid, the Hellcat’s air intake headlights, Satin Black fuel filler cap, Gold School-colored wheels, Gunmetal-colored brake calipers on trims that come with red Brembo brakes, and tons of badging all over from the illuminated “50” logos in the headlamps to the Satin Black Dodge logo in the taillamps.
Dodge says dealers will begin taking orders for the new celebrant this month, with deliveries to commence in the fall. The optional package adds $4,995 to the price of a 2020 Challenger R/T, $5,495 to the price of the R/T Scat Pack, and $5,495 to the cost of the R/T Scat Pack Widebody before the $6,000 cost of the widebody package itself.
