Dodge to Release Stars & Stripes Special Editions
The Dodge Charger and Challenger are American muscle cars with a rich history. These vehicles are also some of the most preferred cars by members of the U.S. Armed Forces, so it’s a no-brainer that Dodge would release special military-inspired editions of these two cars.
Meet the Stars & Stripes Special Edition of the Dodge Charger and Challenger. These special editions feature a unique silver and satin black accent center stripe, satin black American Flag fender decals, 20×9-inch mid-gloss black wheels and black badging.
Inside, the Stars & Stripes Edition has unique black-on-black cloth seats with an embroidered bronze star, gloss black interior accents, bronze accent stitching, dark brushed II interior bezels and an antique bronze instrument panel badge.
Performance-wise, the Stars & Stripes Edition uses bronze four-piston Brembo brake calipers, which are standard on Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Charger Scat Pack models, and are packaged with the Performance Handling Group on R/T models.
The Stars & Stripes Edition is making its official debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. It will be available for $1,995 on the following models:
• Challenger and Charger GT RWD
• Challenger and Charger R/T
• Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Charger Scat Pack
Remember how we mentioned earlier that members of the military like to buy both muscle cars? According to the “New Vehicle Customer Studies: October 2016-September 2018” by mTAB, active military buyers purchase Dodge vehicles more than any other car brand. And out of all the vehicles Dodge produces, they purchase the Charger and Challenger more than any other.
“Dodge is known for delivering custom looks straight from the factory,” Steve Beahm, North American head of passenger car brands and parts & service for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, said in a statement. “We also have a strong following of buyers who are in the military, and well as many buyers who are patriotic. 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.”
