“Dodge is known for delivering custom looks straight from the factory. We also have a strong following of buyers who are in the military, as well as many buyers who are patriotic,” said FCA North America exec, Steve Beahm. “The Stars & Stripes Edition is an opportunity to deliver a custom look with unique elements that speak to those performance enthusiasts who want to extend their passion for their country to the Charger and Challenger.”

Taking a stand

These special edition models feature a unique Satin Black and Silver accent center stripe, Satin Black American Flag fender decals, 20-inch mid-gloss black wheels and black badging.

    Military incentives anyone?

    The Challenger is the only American muscle car that can hold up 20 years without a massive exterior update. This car has aged so well and Dodge keeps cranking insane editions to keep them relavent..

    Instead of Mechanically obsolete muscle cars, we need Electric ones like Tesla’s. And faster hybrids instead of gaz guzzling and silly American dinosaurs. It’s 2019 .

      IT’S THE CURRENT YEAR EVERYONE!!!

      But Tesla’s do not sound like a herd of angry buffalos stopping towards you.. i like EVs and all but sometimes you gotta have a rumble..

    Wait, aren’t those made in Canada?

  • TheBelltower

    That Challenger is beautiful. Emerald colors really work on this car. The Charger, not so much. It looks old, and is still on the shelf after the sell-thru date has past.

    Anyone want to place bets on how long it will be before we see a MAGA version? That’s the target audience with this stuff.

    • Knight Industries

      Well there is an Iranian car called the IKCO Samand. Maybe AOC and Ilhan Omar supporters can bring those in and make a burning the Stars and Stripes Edition to keep all the Democrat luvvies happy?
