2014 Dodge Charger and Challenger 100th Anniversary Editions Celebrate 100 Years of Innovation, Muscle Car Madness

By Jacob Brown | November 19, 2013
You've likely never heard the names John and Horace Dodge, nor do you really care. But after producing parts for Oldsmobile and Ford at the turn of the 20th century, the two finally brought out their own model, finally having enough of stuffing Henry Ford's coffer for him. Thus, in 1914, the Dodge Brothers Company was born, and it would later evolve into just "Dodge" as part of the Chrysler company.
Now, 100 years later, Dodge is celebrating its 100th birthday with special edition versions of the 2014 Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle car. The 100th Anniversary Edition Charger and Challenger come in "High Octane" Red Pearl paint, have all-new 20-inch wheels designs, come with the excess of commemorative badging you'd expect from Chrysler, and come with a unique key fob and book chronicling the history of the Dodge brand.
Of course, the special edition cars are available in other colors--Pitch Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Ivory Tri-coat, Phantom Black, and Header Orange. But why wouldn't you get a color called "High Octane" when provided the opportunity? Seriously.
Inside, they're available with Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa leather with custom cloud overprint throughout much of the interior. The cars also feature a flat-bottom steering wheel with diecast paddle shifters; of course, a six-speed manual transmission is also available in the Challenger. Both the 2014 Dodge Charger and Challenger 100th Anniversary Editions are based on the SXT Plus and R/T Plus trim levels, meaning they're available with either a 300-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 or 375-horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. Both are incredibly well-equipped and come in at a $2,200 premium over their respective "Plus"-level variants, which means $34,490, including $995 for destination and handling, for the cheapest special edition Charger and $31,490 for a Challenger. Look for them to show up at dealerships in the first quarter of 2014. Source: Dodge
