Mopar Dodge Challenger celebrates 10-years of factory-backed mods


News / Friday, August 30th, 2019

Although the current Dodge Challenger turns 11 this year, it remains a top seller for the brand. One of the reasons for its popularity is its adaptability. FCA recognizes this with the just-revealed, limited edition Mopar 2019 Dodge Challenger that celebrates its factory-supported performance parts and accessories directly from its own internal parts department.

For 10 years, Challenger owners have been benefiting directly from upgrades from Chrysler's Mopar division. This was a major problem because tuning a car often required aftermarket parts, which could jeopardize factory guarantees. But with upgrades direct from original equipment manufacturers, such a risk was eliminated.

"Over the past decade we have adapted an impressive group of vehicles with exclusive Mopar performance parts and accessories that our enthusiastic customers crave," said Mark Bosanac, head of Mopar Service in a statement. "This year we are commemorating our tenth Mopar build with another unique and collectable Dodge Challenger, which is as loved today as the first generation vehicle 50 years ago."

The 2019 Mopar Dodge Challenger begins its life as an R / T Scat Pack model. Under the hood is a 392-cubic inch (6.4-liter) Hemi V-8 with 485 hp and 475 pound-foot torque with the choice of a manual six-speed gearbox or an eight-speed automatic. But Mopar reconciles the deal by adding a cold air inlet, strut tower brackets to improve structural rigidity and handling, as well as strut caps and brackets painted in silver for eye candy when the hood is opened.

It is only available in two shades, Pitch Black or White Knuckle, and comes with a variety of customized interior and exterior upgrades. They include special Mopar Shakedown graphics and blue stripes from the front fascia all the way back to the tailgate spoiler. The look is completed by a set of 20×9-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in Goodyear P245 / 45ZR20 performance tires and the optional standard shaker cover package.

The sale starts next month with a starting price of $ 45,835.
