i am sorry to report that the 2019 dodge challenger and charger news out of the 2019 chicago auto show is not the latest salvo in the horsepower wars with ford and chevrolet — but as a fan of loud and boisterous colors on loud and boisterous cars, i am still somewhat tickled. for 2019, both muscle-car models will be available in what dodge calls sublime green.
sublime green was last offered on the challenger in 2015 and on the charger in 2007. it joins a skittles-esque lineup of color offerings for the models, including b5 blue, go mango, f8 green, plum crazy and torred — all of which are offered on both models in 2019. i don't know if sublime green is the best name for this shade; a better name for it might have been "ooze," as in "the secret of the..." variety.
the charger got a few changes for 2019 beyond the new paint job. the front styling is more aggressive, and there's expanded all-wheel-drive availability. the retro-friendly 2019 challenger, meanwhile, adds an srt hellcat redeye variant (to replace the demon) and also offers all-wheel drive on two trim levels: the sxt awd and gt awd.

i would say to keep an eye out for this eye-popping shade at the 2019 chicago auto show, but i have a feeling it won't be hard to spot from across the room. just look for the eerie glow and follow it home. orders for sublime green challengers and chargers start in february.
