The Mopar brand celebrates its 80th birthday by introducing the ’17 Mopar Challenger. This limited edition Challenger will be available in two custom paint schemes and come complete with a commemorative owner’s kit and serialized anniversary badge.
Only 160 Mopar ’17 Challengers will be produced. 80 Challengers will be available with a Pitch Black/Contusion Blue paint scheme and 80 more will be created with a Pitch Black/Billet Silver color combination. A unique Mopar 392 logo, 20-inch aluminum wheels, and SRT Hellcat black exhaust tips will also be included in this special package.
Underneath the hood of the Mopar ’17 lurks a 6.4-liter Hemi engine pumping out 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. Poking through the hood rises a Shaker Hood package painted in Pitch Black. A six-speed manual transmission is also standard equipment on this custom package.
“Since its birth in 1937, Mopar has evolved from the name of an antifreeze product to a global customer-care brand,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global. “The Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger, our latest limited-edition vehicle, is a testament to this philosophy, showcasing how Mopar assists owners in personalizing all FCA US vehicles.”
Each Mopar ’17 customer receives an ownership kit with the following goodies:
- Mopar welcome letter
- Birth certificate with specs, manufacturing date, and unique vehicle number
- Hand-signed Mopar ’17 print
- Mopar ’17 booklet
- Special acrylic model

- Several Mopar items such as a keychain and anniversary badge
