The Dodge Challenger concept shown at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show was another retro concept which draws its styling cues directly form the original 1970's car.

One of the most eagerly anticipated concepts of 2006, especially for American muscle car fans, the Challenger concept was powered by a 6.1 liter HEMI V8 mated to a manual 6 speed transmission. This 425 horsepower unit was capable of taking the Challenger Concept to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, and on to an impressive top speed of 174 mph.

The designers of the new Challenger have tried to follow the design of the original car, while also bringing the design thoroughly into the 21st century. The overall shape is very similar to the original, but a proportionally smaller glass house compared to the overall body follows inline with recent Dodge products, while also increasing the cars purposeful stance.

The interior also pays homage to the original Challenger. The sports seats use pleated style lines like the original but also feature far greater lateral support for aggressive driving. The 'pistol grip' shifter is also a direct link to the old car, and the instrument cluster, inspired by the view down an engine block, recalls the HEMI spirit.

Production versions of the Dodge Challenger concept began rolling off the production line in 2008.
