the latest entry in the league of factory-built, limited-edition vehicles cooked up by dodge and mopar, fca's service, parts and customer-care division, the '19 mopar challenger offers buyers a chance to get their hands on a personalized vehicle without getting them dirty.
this is the 10th vehicle to emerge from the limited-edition program. the mopar ’19 dodge challenger is based on the challenger r/t scat pack model. that means a 475-hp 392-cubic-inch hemi v-8 under the hood and a six-speed manual offered as the standard transmission; an eight-speed automatic is optional. silver-hued strut tower braces contribute to chassis rigidity, and there are also silver-hued strut caps for a nice underhood look. red brembo brake calipers reside at all four corners.
available in either white knuckle or pitch black, the mopar '19 challenger gets the shaker hood package complete with asymmetrical blue strips from the shakedown graphics package. functional—but likely redundant—hood pins and a unique badge on the decklid spoiler contribute to the exterior look. standard 20-inch forged aluminum wheels get mopar center caps and valve-stem caps. interior bits include a two-tone embroidered mopar logo on the seatbacks, an instrument panel badge on the passenger-side air vent, berber floor mats, and polished sill guards with a challenger logo.
as is the case with most limited-run muscle cars, there'll likely be more than enough buyers waving checkbooks, perhaps more than there are available cars. buyers determined to get their hands on one of the 100 mopar '19 challengers will want to contact their dealer sooner than later.
