Article by Anita Panait, on November 21, 2013

Dodge continues to celebrate its 100 years of existence by offering a special version of the Challenger -- the Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition. Derived from the 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus and R/T Plus models, the new 100th Anniversary Edition features all-new 20 x 8-inch polished five-spoke aluminum wheels with Granite Crystal pockets as well as matching Granite Crystal grille surround with script “Challenger” badge.

The special model could be availed in Pitch Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Ivory Tri-Coat, Phantom Black Tri-Coat and Header Orange as well as an exclusive High Octane Red pearl coat paint. It also bears commemorative bar style “Dodge Est. 1914” front-fender badges and Dodge ‘100’ wheel center caps.

The cabin of the Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition boasts all-new and exclusive Molten Red or Foundry Black heated Nappa leather sport seats that feature a custom ‘cloud overprint.’  Providing the special edition with a premium look are brass colored accent stitching and die-cast “Dodge Est. 1914” circular badges, as inspired by John and Horace Dodge.

The armrests trimmed in matching Molten Red or Foundry Black premium leather are contrasted with Liquid Graphite center console bezels, steering wheel accents and door handle pulls. Further commemorating the brand’s centenary are die-cast “Dodge Est. 1914” circular badges on front seatbacks and an embroidered anniversary logo on premium floor mats.

The vehicle’s white gauge faces feature a red “100” mph indication. The interior of the Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition also features Uconnect system, a seven-speaker Boston Acoustics audio system with 368-watt amplifier, Mopar “Challenger” sill plates and bright pedals. The Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition derived from the 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus model is powered by a 305hp 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that returns 27 mpg on the highway.

The Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition derived from the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Plus provides up to 375hp and can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in under 6 seconds. It returns 25 mpg on the highway. Both V-6 and V-8 models feature sport mode calibration, performance-tuned suspension as well as three-spoke flat-bottom performance steering-wheel. Available in limited quantities, the 2014 Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition package is available for a U.S. MSRP of $2,500 more than the Challenger SXT Plus or R/T Plus trim levels.

Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition

There is no vehicle more iconic than the head-turning Challenger, which serves as the perfect foundation to celebrate 100 years of Dodge style and performance. Based on the 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus and R/T Plus models, the new 100th Anniversary Edition pays tribute to the brand's history in contemporary Dodge style.

Similar to the Charger, the Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition includes all-new 20 x 8-inch polished five-spoke aluminum wheels with Granite Crystal pockets and matching Granite Crystal grille surround with script "Challenger" badge. To provide contrast, Pitch Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Ivory Tri-Coat, Phantom Black Tri-Coat, Header Orange and an exclusive High Octane Red pearl coat paint are available. For added detail, commemorative bar style "Dodge Est. 1914" front-fender badges and Dodge '100' wheel center caps mark this special edition.

The interior has all-new and exclusive Molten Red or Foundry Black heated Nappa leather sport seats featuring a custom 'cloud overprint.' Brass colored accent stitching and die-cast "Dodge Est. 1914" circular badges provide the 2014 Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Editions with an exclusive, high-end appearance that also draws inspiration from the machinist heritage of John and Horace Dodge. Adding contrast to armrests trimmed in matching Molten Red or Foundry Black premium leather are Liquid Graphite center console bezels, steering wheel accents and door handle pulls.

Interior appointments designed to commemorate the brand's centenary include die-cast "Dodge Est. 1914" circular badges on front seatbacks and an embroidered anniversary logo on premium floor mats. For a touch of style, new bright white gauge faces feature a surprising detail element as the "100" mph indication is marked appropriately in red. Adding even more detail is the Uconnect system's startup image, evoking the industrious nature of Detroit. Finishing out the interior is a seven speaker Boston Acoustics audio system with 368-watt amplifier, along with Mopar "Challenger" sill plates and bright pedals.

Performance and Challenger are synonymous. The Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition based on the 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus model features a 305 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, delivering up to 27 mpg on the highway. Available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic, the Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition based on the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Plus offers up to 375 horsepower, 25 mpg highway and 0-60 mph under 6 seconds. Both V-6 and V-8 models include sport mode calibration, performance-tuned suspension and three-spoke flat-bottom performance steering-wheel.

Completing this special model are two unique key fobs, which include a 100th Anniversary Edition jeweled logo on the back side, a customized owner's kit and a special commemorative book celebrating the 100 years of Dodge heritage.

Available in limited quantities, the 2014 Dodge Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition package is available for a U.S. MSRP of $2,500 more than the Challenger SXT Plus or R/T Plus trim levels, offering tremendous value for all of the unique attributes, including 20-inch aluminum wheels, exclusive Foundry Black or Molten Red 'cloud print' heated Nappa leather, flat-bottom steering wheel, Premium Boston Acoustics audio, performance suspension and steering, die-cast paddle shifters and commemorative jewelry.
