Mopar is celebrating a decade of muscle car customization with the Limited-Edition Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger.
As is so often the case, Fiat Chrysler is celebrating yet another milestone with a special edition Challenger. Have we come to expect it from the Italian/Americana carmaker? Yes. Does that make it a bad thing? No.
For celebrating "10 consecutive years of factory-vehicle customization with exclusive Mopar performance parts and accessories," Mopar has revealed the Limited-Edition Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger. Based on the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, the Mopar '19 Challenger has several features that make it unique amongst its muscle car brethren.
We'll start with the non-unique aspects of the car, which include the exterior colors (either Knuckle White or Pitch Black), shaker hood, and black hood pins. All of these items are available for any Challenger, but what is special are the exclusive Mopar Shakedown graphics. Blue center stripes run from nose to tail and wrap around the shaker hood for a unique look.
Also unique are interior custom Mopar '19 instrument panel badges, Mopar badging on the rear decklid spoiler, a "birth certificate" that has the precise time and place when the '19 Mopar Challenger was made, as well as an engraved vehicle number printed on the exclusive 19-inch color owners booklets included in each vehicle.
While the rest of the car isn't necessarily unique, it's certainly impressive. A set of 20x9-inch forged aluminum wheels are wrapped in Goodyear P245/45ZR20 performance tires, while each wheel has Mopar wheel locks, center caps, and valve stem caps. Brembo brakes with red calipers give each wheel a little extra pop.
Under the hood is the usual 392-ci HEMI V8 with 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, with the 8-speed automatic transmission as an optional extra. A Mopar cold air intake ensures the engine is sucking down cooler air while strut tower braces keep the chassis as rigid and ready as possible.
Orders open in September with deliveries beginning in the fourth quarter of 2019. Production will be limited to 100 units, with 90 slotted for America and the remaining 10 for Canada (sorry, Mexico). MSRP starts at $45,835.
