We’re all wondering what the new, seventh, and final “Last Call” model from Dodge could be. Promised to debut way back in November 2022, there was a slight delay, and the big vehicle reveal was pushed back – all the way to March 2023. More specifically, the last “Last Call” mode will be shown during the Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas event at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 20, 2023. So far, we’ve seen the Dodge Challenger Shakedown, the 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee, and the 2023 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Swinger, 2023 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Swinger, the 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona, and the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost. What could the seventh be?
Although the Dodge Charger is older than the Dodge Challenger, the latter has become more synonymous with the brand name over the years. When someone thinks of “Dodge”, it’s usually the high-performing Challenger in a funky color. So, it’s a safe bet that the seventh “Last Call” model will go out with a bang with a final model for the Challenger before we see it again as an all-electric vehicle. Dodge has been releasing cryptic ads as a part of a marketing campaign for the final “Last Call” model, and so far, they’ve been more or less confusing. With the latest ad, we’re finally getting somewhere.

The third one raised some eyebrows. What could be the significance of that 7.1 pounds? If this was an electric vehicle (EV), then the title “Density Matters” would make sense. When it comes to gasoline-powered vehicles, density only matters when it comes to how much air is pushed into the combustion chamber before igniting the fuel. Superchargers are known for cramming more air than usual, and the Air Grabber hood on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was the largest functional hood scoop (45.2 square inches) of any production car. Throw in the SRT Power Chiller, condensing air by making it colder, allowing for even more air to fill up the chamber, and the powertrain was able to generate the 840 horsepower in its natural form – more when using the red key. A close second is the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and its counterpart, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
This next ad gives us plenty of numbers to work with. Holding up a device to the big leprechaun in the last two ads, an equation is written across the device - 105@(3.02x2.88)=. At first glance, it means nothing. Less so when the big guy yells at the device, and the solution is 1582. Ah, but therein lies the answer to all of these recent hints. Let’s do the math and then break each thing down.
First off, last I checked “@” isn’t an equation variable, but 105 “at” does mean something. 105 is known as a common grade of fuel used in racecars. The SRT Demon could make use of a higher fuel grade for testing out its performance on the raceway. It makes sense that Dodge would send off its final all-gasoline model with the ability to show off on the track. So, 105 fuel at 8.9996 = 1582. What does that mean?
8.9996 could very well be the completion time for running a quarter mile. The quarter-mile run of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was 9.65 seconds at a top speed of 140 mph. For the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the quarter-mile run was finished in 11.4-seconds at 126 mph. The fourth ad is called “Scream at 215 mph”. Given this piece of the puzzle, if these theories are correct, then the final “Last Call” model is fast enough to finish a quarter mile in just under nine seconds at 215 mph.
The last piece of this puzzling equation is the 1582. After the third ad gave us those 7.1 pounds to work with, if we’re talking about airflow, when measured by cubic feet per minute (CFM), the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon had an airflow of 1,150 CFM. If this last “Last Call” model is meant to rival the likes of the SRT Demon, or even the SRT Super Stock without stepping on anyone’s toes, the jump to 1,582 CFM while not breaking records could be a good middle ground to settle on.
