Mopar is celebrating a decade of “factory-vehicle customization” by unveiling a limited edition Challenger.
Dubbed the Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger, the special edition is based on the 2019 Challenger R/T Scat Pack and is available exclusively in Pitch Black or White Knuckle.
To give the model a unique look, designers installed a Shaker Hood with functional black hood pins. The model also has Shakedown graphics, asymmetrical center stripes and a rear spoiler with Mopar badging. Rounding out the highlights are 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with Mopar-branded center caps and valve stem caps as well as Goodyear performance tires.
Interior changes are relatively limited, but drivers will find cloth front seats with an embroidered Mopar logo on the backrest. The model also has Challenger-branded door sill plates, Berber floor mats and a “Mopar ’19” badge on the dashboard.
Power comes from a familiar 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that produces 485 hp (362 kW / 492 PS) and 475 lb-ft (644 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission, but an eight-speed automatic is available as an option.
While the engine carries over, the car has been equipped with a cold air intake and strut tower braces. There’s also a Brembo braking system with red calipers.
The Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger will go up for order in September and the first deliveries are slated to begin in the fourth quarter. Production will be limited to 100 units – 90 for the U.S. and 10 for Canada – and U.S. pricing starts at $45,835.
Everyone who purchases the car will receive an exclusive owner’s kit which includes a Mopar ’19 booklet, a Mopar ’19 rendering and a “unique keepsake” engraved with their vehicle number. The kit also includes a “birth certificate” that shows the date of manufacture and the proprietary build number.
