Dodge peeled back the roof on a new third-party Challenger convertible during its three-day Dodge Speed Week event. The three-day event features three nights of Dodge product reveals on Aug. 15, 16, and 17, 2022. The series wraps up on Aug. 20 with a big Dodge brand display in conjunction with the Modern Street Hemi Shootout group
on Aug. 20 during the Dream Cruise Weekend.
The 2022 Dodge Challenger convertible will be the first convertible Challenger since the 1970 and 1971 model years for the original muscle car.
“Last Call” for ICE Muscle
Parent company Stellantis is using the event to signal a “Last Call” to its Dodge Challenger and Charger, which will be phased out of production at the end of 2023. Among the debuts at Dodge Speed Week was the 710-hp, 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat.
“While we hit the throttle toward our new performance path, Dodge is also having fun on this victory lap by celebrating decades of muscle car power,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer, Stellantis. The future of performance for Dodge will be electrified, Kuniskis has said.
“What better way to commemorate how far we’ve come than to make it easier for Dodge Challenger customers to create a throwback convertible look,” Kuniskis said in a release.
Each 2023 Charger and Challenger will have a “Last Call” under-hood plaque with the vehicle name and silhouette showing their origin as “Designed in Auburn Hills” and “Assembled in Brampton.”
Challenger Convertible Ordering Process
Dodge dealerships will offer an expedited ordering process for third-party convertible modifications for the 2022 Dodge Challenger through Drop Top Customs. It is considered the oldest convertible coachbuilder in the U.S. and is based in Florida.
The new, integrated transportation ordering process allows customers to place third-party orders and pick up finished vehicles through participating Dodge dealers.
Dodge dealerships in the U.S. will begin taking retail convertible transportation orders on Aug. 16, 2022. Convertible third-party modifications through Drop Top Customs will also be available for the 2023 Dodge Challenger when orders open for the new model year.
Customers will work closely with Drop Top Customs and their Dodge dealership to order the vehicle to their specifications. Dodge dealerships will schedule unmodified customer vehicles to ship directly from Stellantis’ Brampton (Ontario, Canada) Assembly Plant to Drop Top Customs. Dodge says that the process will provide a more efficient build time, and allows owners to take the keys after completion.
Expedited shipment option to Drop Top Customs will be available for 2022 and 2023 Dodge Challenger R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and all Challenger SRT models.
