New Package on Dodge Challenger and New Colors on Challenger and Charger
Every year Dodge reveals some type of new feature that pays homage to the brand’s past models and this year they are doing it with the addition of two throwback exterior colors and the creation of a new package.
Challenger Shaker models, the Challenger R/T Shaker, the Challenger R/T Shaker Plus and the Challenger SRT 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker are all available with the all-new Shakedown Package. The Shakedown Package is inspired by the 1971 Dodge Challenger Shakedown concept that was revealed at the 2016 SEMA Show. The 1971 Challenger Shakedown concept was a Challenger with a 1971 body, but it had modern exterior styling cues, like asymmetrical racing stripes, as well as a few exterior features from 2017 Challenger SRT Hellcat models, like wheels and lights.
Expanding on the number of racing stripe options offered by Dodge, the new Shakedown Package has asymmetrical racing stripes and they are unlike any racing stripes on any other type of muscle car. The stripe design consists of four stripes of different widths and they run from the front of the vehicle to the back of the vehicle, but instead of going in a straight line from front to back, they outline one side of the Shaker on the hood of the vehicle. Though the design is completely new, it has a bit of a vintage feel, as it looks like something that could have been a custom design on muscle car models in the 1970s. The Shakedown Package also includes an upgraded Alpine audio system as well as white-face gauges on the vehicle’s instrument cluster. The new package is available with all exterior colors and it has an MSRP of $995.
Returning HIP Colors
In addition to the new package available on the three Challenger Shaker models, Dodge customers can customize their Charger or Challenger with the large list of exterior colors available for 2018 model year vehicles. The 2018 color list consists of 15 exterior color options and four of them are High Intensity Paint (HIP) colors, which were available on Mopar vehicles in the late ‘60s and ‘70s. The four HIP colors available this year include Tor Red (also called HEMI Orange in the past) and Go Mango, which have been available for a few years, as well as Plum Crazy and B5 Blue, which were brought back to the lineup this year after a pause in their availability.
Other colors on the 2018 lineup include Yellow Jacket, White Knuckle, Destroyer Gray, as well as the two new colors, IndiGO Blue and F8 Green.
