The Dodge Challenger made an awesome impression, establishing itself as a performance legend with a bold presence on the road since it was introduced in 1969 for the 1970 model year. Dodge will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Dodge Challenger, the ultimate GT muscle car to ever hit the street. With its resurgence, the lasting legacy of the Dodge Challenger made record-breaking sales over the past two years. To celebrate, Dodge recently announced details about the 50th Anniversary Edition of the Dodge Challenger for 2020. 

WHAT TO EXPECT: The Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition will be available on the GT RWD, R/T Shaker, R/T Scat Pack Shaker, and R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody trim levels. You better put your order in now if you hope to buy one, because Dodge is building only 70 examples of each model grade in each available color for a total run of 1,960 units, just like the original year of production for the first Challenger. For the 50th Anniversary Edition, each will have a dashboard placard with the car’s production number out of 70.

GOLD STATUS: The new Gold Rush exterior paint color will be introduced with the Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition.  For the anniversary edition, the Shaker hood will be available on the R/T Scat Pack Widebody model and other trims. The Shaker hood is available only for the V8 models. Another new exterior feature for all 50th-anniversary cars is the trim specific “Gold School”  alloy wheels. They will change in design depending on which level of Challenger you choice. Models equipped with Brembo brakes will receive a new gunmetal finish on the calipers rather than the typical bright red. 

INTERIOR THAT’S AGELESS: The interior of the special edition vehicles is furnished in black Nappa leather with Alcantara accents and Sepia accent stitching. Carbon fiber accents are featured throughout the cabin, too. The seats have heating and ventilation features, while the instrument cluster has a retro feel, with a yellow pinstripe around the gauge dials. Why bother with excellence? Dodge leaves the powertrain alone for this special edition. Each trim level comes with the same engine and transmission as the standard versions.

Dodge commemorates the Challenger’s tradition as a muscle car icon with the 2020 Challenger’s 50th Anniversary Edition. It being introduced with the new exterior paint color, Gold Rush and other nifty exterior tweaks. The Dodge Challenger’s 50th Anniversary Edition encapsulates one of the fastest and best-looking muscle cars on the road.
