Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat Jailbreak Models Break All the Rules
Dodge just unlocked new, unrestricted, personalization options with new Jailbreak models for 2022 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebodies. Basically, the Jailbreak models unlock color-combination ordering restrictions and add new factory-custom options. That gives owners the freedom to create a Dodge performance vehicle that perfectly fits their individual style, right out of the box.
Jailbreak models are the next step in Dodge's two-year Never Lift campaign. It will launch a variety of new Dodge models and initiatives. To view the Dodge Never Lift 24 Months of Muscle calendar, visit Dodgegarage.com/never-lift.
“Roughly half of all Dodge customers modify their vehicles,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer - Stellantis. “For those looking for increased performance, we will launch Direct Connection next month. But for those looking for a unique appearance, we are going to let customers run free through the styling archives. We're taking most of the parts and pieces we've used over the years, adding a few new ones and letting customers build their own ‘One of One.’ So, if you're dreaming about owning a Stinger Yellow Challenger with Brass Monkey wheels, Hammerhead Grey seats, blue Brembos and red badges, I'm not sure we should, but we'll build it for you.”
The new Jailbreak option package for 2022 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody models unlocks ordering restrictions, freeing owners to mix and match from a full menu of features. Jailbreak models also include a unique Jailbreak badge on the instrument panel, and output on the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is bumped to 807 horsepower thanks to a revised powertrain calibration.
The Jailbreak model for the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody lets option combinations run wild in more than 20 categories, including seven options for seats, stripes and wheels; six brake caliper color options; five exterior badging finishes; four choices each of steering wheels; seat belt colors and floor mats; and much more.
For the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody Jailbreak model, option and feature combinations are also plentiful. Personalization paths run through seven wheel options, six exterior stripe and brake caliper color offerings, five varieties of seats and exterior badging finishes, and four options of steering wheels, seat belt colors and floor mats.
Those who can’t decide from among the wide array of features can opt for order combinations created by the Dodge Product Design Office, such as Old School and Brass Funky.

The Great Escape
If you're going to run any sort of option package with Jailbreak in the name, your tires should support life on the run. The Nitto NT555 G2 fits that bill to a T. The ultra high performance tire targets performance driving courtesy of increased traction, improved handling, and excellent wet braking ability.
Dodge Power Brokers dealers will be able to order and display Jailbreak models in their showrooms. The new Dodge Power Brokers program, recently announced in tandem with the new Direct Connection performance parts line, will build a network of dealerships equipped with staff trained to deliver a performance-focused customer service experience.
