Not limited in production, everyone has a chance to join in the 50th anniversary celebration with the Commemorative Edition, which is available on the 2020 model-year Challenger R/T, R/T Scat Pack and R/T Scat Pack Widebody models.

The Celebration Continues With Challenger 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition

With its heritage design, unmatched power and everyday livability, the Challenger is a true GT car and every bit as beloved and relevant to today’s consumer as the first generation was 50 years ago. The 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition features select limited-edition 50th anniversary touches, including:
  • Satin Black hand-painted hood and black-wrapped roof and decklid
  • Model-specific fender badges and “Challenger 50th Anniversary” grille and spoiler badges in "Gold School" finish
  • Illuminated Air Catcher headlamps with LED-illuminated “50” logos
  • Satin Black fuel-filler door with heritage “FUEL” lettering
  • Satin Back “DODGE” taillamp badge
  • Instrument panel (IP) badge with “Challenger50” logo
  • "Gold School" wheels are also featured on the Commemorative Edition:
    • 20-inch by 9-inch on Challenger R/T models
    • 20-inch by 9.5-inch on Challenger R/T Scat Pack models; optional on R/T models with Performance Plus Group
    • 20-inch by 11-inch on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody model
The Commemorative Edition features Gunmetal brake color when fitted with Brembo brakes, available on R/T, standard on R/T Scat Pack and R/T Scat Pack Widebody.

Featuring a throwback-inspired interior with 50th anniversary details, the Commemorative Edition invokes a sense of nostalgia in the modern, athletic cockpit of the Challenger. Inside, the Commemorative Edition features:
  • Heated and ventilated Nappa leather and Alcantara suede performance seats with sepia accent stitching and embroidered “50” logo seat backs
  • Alcantara door bolsters with sepia accent stitching
  • Real carbon fiber IP and console bezels with a copper weave
  • Sepia accent stitch on the IP, door panels and armrest, center console lid, seat faces and the leather, flat-bottom steering wheel
  • White-faced gauges with yellow accents
  • Startup animation Electronic Vehicle Information Center screen showcasing 1970 Challenger
  • Premium berber floor mats with an embroidered “50” logo
While the Challenger 50th Anniversary Limited Edition is available in all of Dodge’s high-impact color options, the Commemorative Edition palette is available only in Smoke Show (new), Granite, Indigo Blue, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel and White Knuckle.

The Commemorative Edition has a starting U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $4,995.

Dodge Muscle Car Color Palette Heats Up This Summer

Smoke Show joins the Dodge color lineup, one of five new color options for Dodge Challenger and Charger models, joining Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, Frostbite and limited-edition Gold Rush for the 2020 model year. All five of these new production colors were first shown as concept colors two years ago at the FCA Design Color Clinic at the 13th annual Spring Festival of the LXs, voted as the top colors by enthusiasts and made it into production.

Dealers can begin ordering Smoke Show on 2020 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models this month. Hellraisin, Frostbite and Sinamon Stick are currently available for dealer orders.

Smoke Show will be available on all trims of Challenger and Charger

Interesting to note the Commemorative Editions come with the dual scoop performance hood ('15-
'18) that used to be the standard hood on any model except the SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat models.

About the only thing missing is that a Scat Pack Wide Body & shaker isn't offered or how in the R/T line the 50th Anniv. was only the shaker hood version.

Now the only colors offered are the non-heritage colors. I've seen the 50th Anniv models - and there's a lot of nice touches.

It does "water down" the features that were exclusive on the limited production 50th Anniv. models.

IMO, this should have been done for whatever would have been the final year of the LA series as a send-off rather than tacking it onto the end of MY 2020 production - while the 50th Anniv. models are in production.

With the prices of the Commemorative Ed. package - I don't think there's going to be a lot of them built - they amount to about 10% of the price of fully equipped model in each of their lines.

various makes have done this over the years where bodywork or features turned up in later years (ZR-1 bodywork on C4 Vette on other models) and Ford has done similar things offering items on Mustangs that were previously only on the top-level performance trim.

Finally I get to see the smoke show color that they've been talking about for months. I was going to hold out until I finally saw the color since I was on the fence with a few available colors and was intrigued how smoke show will finally look like. Seems like a lighter shade of destroyer gray, which was missing in the 2020 color lineup. Looks okay, but I ain't waiting any longer, and I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with the ol' granite crystal. Thanks for posting, A Guy.

Personally, I like Destroyer Grey better. They should've just brought that back instead of this "new" color.

I thought that was another type of metallic silver - a lighter shade of Destroyer Gray (solid color)?

That's a pass on that...watered down primer, no

I wonder how that new color compares to my Billit Clearcoat. Some of the picks look lighter than the first. The Billit Clearcoat is a little darker than the Triple Nickel. This has to be somewhere in there between Destroyer Gray and BC.

I own a 50th edition R/T in Frostbite #33 and have to say I was a little miffed by this commemorative edition at first. The more I thought about it, it's really just one more thing only true Mopar enthusiasts will know the difference and that is a club I'm proud to be a part of. I'm fortunate enough to own 1 of only 1960 specific models made and my Mopar family members will know the difference between my car and the "smokeshow" Dodge created 😉

Very true. Most other people can't even tell a Challenger from a Charger, let alone a Limited 50th from a Commemorative 50th, or even a Hellcat from an SXT. I still have coworkers ask me if I've gotten my "Charger" yet, even though I've never mentioned a Charger and have been talking about Challengers for years. But for those that know, they know.

Still love king the smoke show? I’ve seen a very nicely optioned WBSP Shaker in Smoke show. Nice price as well. Been tempted but I’ve never seen the color in person.

It's better in person..... I really looks sharp all shined up.
