November 20, 2019 , Windsor, Ontario - The “golden age” of muscle cars is now, and Dodge is celebrating the golden anniversary of its iconic Challenger with the new limited-production 50th Anniversary Edition, shown for the first time today at 2019 AutoMobility LA.  
 
When the Dodge Challenger first entered in the muscle car ranks of Detroit’s Big Three 50 years ago, it arrived with something its competitors didn’t have: the greatest range of powertrain choices in the industry, from the small but durable 225-cubic-inch “Slant Six” to the fearsome “Elephant Motor,” — the 426 HEMI®.   
 
A half-century later, Dodge Challenger still leads the pack with the most powerful muscle car powertrains in the industry — ranging from the Pentastar V-6 engine to the fastest, most powerful muscle car, the 797-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
 
“2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Dodge Challenger, one of the most storied muscle cars in history,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars–Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA–North America. “That history was built on a few key things: big attitude and big muscle, loud colours and loud exhausts, and an enthusiast community that is as unique and diverse as our special editions. So, to commemorate the 50th, we're celebrating with a cool new special edition that checks all of these boxes.”
  
In Canada, Dodge is offering the limited-production 50th Anniversary Edition package on Challenger Scat Pack 392 Shaker. The already heavily equipped Challenger SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye models will feature a 50th Anniversary grille badge for the 2020 model year as standard equipment.
 
Blast With A Past: New 2020 Dodge Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition Shakes Things Up
With its heritage design, unmatched power and everyday livability, the Challenger is a true GT car and every bit as beloved and relevant to today’s consumer as the first generation was 50 years ago.
 
To celebrate Challenger’s colourful history, the Dodge Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition sticks to its roots, focusing on the details big and small, that have made Challenger what it is today: high-impact paint (HIP) exterior colours, Shaker hood scoop, hot wheels and custom touches on the inside — all designed to give Dodge enthusiasts another way to display legendary Dodge performance attitude.
 
A body-colour Shaker hood scoop is standard on Scat Pack 392 equipped with the 50th Anniversary Edition package. As the name suggests, the legendary cold-air grabbing Shaker extends from the engine compartment, directing cooler air back into the 392 HEMI V-8 engine. Like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the 50th Anniversary Edition continues the Dodge tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that “shakes” with the movement of the powertrain.

The functional Shaker hood comes with a Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance. Lift the hood and enthusiasts will also be treated to a “SHAKER” underhood decal — reminiscent of the original 1970 Challenger.
 
Illuminated Air Catcher headlamps feature 50th Anniversary Edition LED-illuminated “50” logos.
 
Each 50th Anniversary Edition will have a custom-look, straight from the factory with a standard Satin Black hand-painted hood and black-wrapped roof and decklid. Challenger 50th Anniversary logo badges appear on the grille and spoiler in a new “Gold School” finish. Fender badges are also finished in “Gold School.”. The standard Satin Black fuel-filler door with heritage “FUEL” lettering adds a touch of nostalgia.
 
Unique 20-inch-by-9.5-inch “Gold School” wheels are featured on the Challenger Scat Pack 392 Shaker 50th Anniversary Edition.
 
The 50th Anniversary Edition package also features a Gunmetal colour Brembo brakes standard on Scat Pack 392.
 
Commemorating the original model year of the Challenger, 1970, there will be 70 numbered units of the Scat Pack 392 Shaker in Go Mango for Canada.

Throwback-inspired Interior Features 50th Anniversary Details
From the steering wheel to the instrument panel, startup screens, gauge faces, seat backs, door bolsters and floor mats, the 50th Anniversary theme extends into the Challenger’s athletic interior.

Black, heated and ventilated Nappa leather and Alcantara suede performance seats feature Sepia accent stitching and embroidered “50” logo seat backs. The Sepia accent stitch appears throughout the interior on the Instrument Panel (IP), door panels and armrest, centre console lid, seat faces and the suede, flat-bottom steering wheel. 
 
Real carbon fibre IP and console bezels with a copper weave and Alcantara door bolsters featuring a unique accent stitch create a premium cockpit feel that is unique to the 50th Anniversary Edition package. Premium Berber floor mats feature an embroidered “50” logo.

The 50th Anniversary Edition package features a startup animation on the Electronic Vehicle Information Centre (EVIC) screen that showcases the 1970 Challenger and unique white-faced gauges with yellow accents.

The passenger-side IP badge displays the Challenger 50th Anniversary logo and is colour-matched to the exterior; each vehicle is identified as “x out of 70.”
