2022 Dodge Charger and Challenger Ready for Halloween | Cars Blog

Starting price is about $32,945


Just in time for Halloween, Dodge is introducing two incredibly stylish decorations for the Dodge Charger and Challenger 2022 - the new HEMI® Orange and SRT Black look packs.



Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand CEO - Stellantis said: “The HEMI Orange and SRT Black packages offer two distinctive styling options for the Dodge Charger and Challenger 2022. “Owners of performance vehicles are unique. and these two packages give our customers the opportunity to stand out even more on the street."


The HEMI Orange Appearance Pack, available on GT RWD and Scat Pack Widebody models for the Charger and Challenger, pays homage to the iconic HEMI engine that powered the Dodge muscle cars in many decade. Like the distinctive orange look of the early HEMI engine, the HEMI Orange package colors outside the lines to create a unique, orange and black combination of accents that transforms both the exterior and furniture.



Outside, a new orange accent complements the Gunmetal stripe along the length of the car, while orange surrounds the Midnight Gray Metallic grille and fender badging. On the Scat Pack Widebody, orange six-piston Brembo brake calipers contrast with the 20 x 11-inch "Warp Speed" wheels in Carbon black (the GT RWD features four-piston Brembo brake calipers with 20 x 9-inch Medium Gloss black wheels. Black).



In the cockpit, orange stitching accentuates the instrument panel, door and armrest covers, instrument panel cover, gearshift starter and leather-wrapped flat-bottomed steering wheel. The seats also sport orange stitching, as well as a monochrome Dodge Rhombi logo on the back of the seat. For the Scat Pack Widebody, an orange and black "392" panel badge decorates the inside. Blacked-out interior modifications include the steering wheel trim, gearshift lever body and trim, cup holders and vent rings.


Ordering the HEMI Orange bundle will be available through dealers starting Q4 2021 at a US manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of $2,995 for GT RWD (including Performance Handling package with four-piston Brembo brake calipers and 20 x 9-inch wheels) and $1,500 for the Scat Pack Widebody. A HEMI orange option will also be offered for the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T and R/T Tow N Go, with details and availability coming in the first quarter of 2022.


The SRT Black package, available for Charger and Challenger on SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye models, offers the option of badges and black exterior accents. Charger and Challenger join Durango to offer the SRT Black bundle, available on the Durango SRT 392.


Dodge's SRT Black package is a bit underwhelming with modest appearance upgrades. Dodge adds a Midnight Gray Metallic grille, fenders and SRT badging on the bonnet on the Charger, while the Challenger gets unique grille, fender, and spoiler badges. This package also provides the Charger with the Black Nickel air intakes that are already standard on Challenger SRT models.


The Hemi Orange package costs $2,995 on the GT RWD, although it does include four-piston Brembo brake calipers, 20-inch wheels, and a Performance Handling package. The appearance pack is only $1,500 on the Scat Pack Widebody model. The SRT Black package is much cheaper at $695. Dodge is expected to offer the Hemi Orange appearance pack on some Dodge Durango 2022 models. Details on the SUV's equipment package will arrive in the first quarter of next year. Dodge already offers the SRT Black bundle on Durango.



Dodge // SRT


The 2022 Dodge Charger has the distinction of being the only sedan with a V-8 engine that starts at less than $40,000. While the Chrysler 300 also offers a V-8 with rear-wheel drive, it's nicer and more expensive. The Charger is less refined, with a questionable interior quality, and the ride is too sure to get worse on the optional 20-inch wheels. As with the Dodge Challenger coupe, it has a standard V-6 engine and all-wheel drive. The most interesting charger, however, has the splendid Hemi V-8 under the hood, the 370-horsepower 5.7-liter or the 485-horsepower 6.4-liter. The latter is reserved for the Scat Pack model, not as powerful as the separately rated 700hp Hellcat SRT Charger, but it is the sportiest non-SRT model and offers a distinctive wide-body look. While not everyone will appreciate the 2022 Charger, anyone who wants an old sedan with loads of nostalgic features will.


For 2022, Dodge makes only small changes to the Charger lineup. The Driver Convenience Group package now includes a deluxe security alarm, which should come in handy in the event that anyone tries to boost (read: steal) an owner's prized ride. The alarm is also now standard on Scat Pack models, too.


We think the Charger R/T, with its 370-hp 5.7-liter V-8, has the perfect mix of power and features. Those who want all-wheel drive are limited to the V-6 versions. The bigger 485-hp V-8 that comes with the Scat Pack makes accelerating great again but costs about $5000 more than the R/T. Along with a standard 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, our choice includes a throbbing dual-mode exhaust, a leather-wrapped performance steering wheel, and 20-inch rims. We'd also add the Driver Convenience Group (blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, heated exterior mirrors, and upgraded headlights) and the Performance Handling Group (20-inch wheels with all-season performance tires, Brembo brakes, and sport-tuned suspension).
