November 19, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



When John and Horace Dodge developed America’s first mass-produced all-steel-bodied cars in 1914, the brothers set a new record for the most first-model-year automobiles ever produced (45,033 cars). One-hundred years later, the Dodge Brother’s legacy is thriving as Dodge has become America’s youngest and fastest-growing brand – powered by the performance of the legendary Charger and Challenger, the new Durango, the ultimate “no compromise SUV,” the world-class new Dart, the ever-versatile Grand Caravan, America’s best-selling minivan, and the innovation, ingenuity and efficiency of Journey and Avenger.

Now, to celebrate 100 years of Dodge performance and heritage, the brand is offering special editions of two of its most iconic vehicles. New 2014 Dodge Charger and Challenger 100th Anniversary Editions will arrive at dealerships in the first quarter of 2014 with world-class power and performance, innovative technology features and bold muscle-car styling with commemorative design details inspired by the brand’s heritage.


“The Dodge Charger and Challenger are the perfect foundation to celebrate 100 years of Dodge style and performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO — Dodge Brand. “Over the last century, the Dodge brand has seen its biggest success when we’ve combined head-turning designs with ingenious engineering and world-class performance. These two iconic muscle cars do all of that and more. They represent the Dodge brand’s heart and soul.”

The new 2014 Charger and Challenger 100th Anniversary Editions are loaded with unique style, technology and commemorative features. They deliver up to 31 miles per gallon (mpg) with the standard Pentastar V-6 engine and sprints to 60 miles per hour in under 6 seconds, thanks to the available legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine that produces 375 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque. They also feature world-renowned innovations like Uconnect and the segment-exclusive ZF
eight-speed automatic transmission.

Both of these limited production vehicles will share several unique visual elements, both outside and in, including exclusive availability of a new “High Octane” red pearl coat paint, all-new 20-inch aluminum wheels, commemorative badging, unique key fob and a special limited-edition owner’s kit and a commemorative book that celebrates 100 years of Dodge heritage.



Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Edition models
With the Charger, Dodge delivers the world’s only four-door muscle car, and the 2014 Charger 100th Anniversary Edition celebrates the brand’s centennial with uniquely designed appointments to complement the sedan’s world-class power, handling, technology and iconic style.

For a bold look, the 2014 Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Editions are available in Pitch Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Ivory Tri-Coat, Phantom Black Tri-Coat, Header Orange, and for this special occasion, all-new and exclusive High Octane Red Pearl Coat paint. With any of the colors, all-new 20 x 8-inch polished five-spoke aluminum wheels with Granite Crystal pockets and a matching Granite Crystal Dodge split-crosshair grille provide a striking look to the classic Coke-bottle shape. Stylistic appointments to commemorate the brand’s century include “Dodge Est. 1914” bar-style front-fender badges and special Dodge “100” logo on the center caps. Additional exterior appointments include a body-color rear spoiler and on models with the legendary HEMI and a red “R/T” heritage
grille badge.

Exclusive interior appointments are designed to make the 2014 Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Edition stand out. Dodge designers were inspired by the rich history of Dodge and sought to outfit the interior with premium attributes that reflect the patina and machinist legacy of John and Horace Dodge. All-new Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa leather with a custom cloud overprint wraps the sport seats, center console armrest and door armrests. A unique three-spoke flat-bottom performance steering wheel features die-cast paddle shifters for added driver control. For an industrial appearance, leather-wrapped surfaces are sewn together with brass-colored accent stitching. Dark Brushed Graphite center console bezels and Liquid Graphite steering-wheel accents provide a premium look. 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. All-new instrument panel cluster graphics feature unique black-face gauges with white indication and stand-out red “100” mph indication for this special occasion. And to play up that this is no ordinary Charger, the Electronic Vehicle Information Center and Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen feature a unique startup image, evoking the industrious nature of Detroit.

Paired with the award-winning Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen is Beats by Dr. Dre audio technology, standard on 2014 Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Edition models. This segment-exclusive sound experience includes 10-speakers and a 12-channel 552 watt amplifier that integrates Beats proprietary equalizer algorithm, all to create the high-definition sound quality required in professional recording studios.

And it wouldn’t be a Dodge without world-class performance and efficiency. The Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Edition based on the 2014 Dodge Charger SXT Plus features the award-winning 300 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with state-of-the-art eight-speed transmission and active intake manifold and sport mode, delivering best-in-class rear-wheel-drive fuel economy, up to 31 mpg, and a 0-60 mph time in the low 6-second range. For customers who demand even more power, the Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Edition based on the 2014 Dodge Charger R/T Plus adds the more powerful 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with four-cylinder mode Fuel Saver Technology and up to 25 mpg on the highway. All 100th Anniversary Editions include sport mode calibration, performance-tuned suspension and steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters for added driver control.

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 Charger 100th Anniversary Edition package is available for a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $2,200 more than the 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, rear spoiler, Beats Audio, performance suspension and steering, die-cast paddle shifters and commemorative jewelry.
