Now that the auto industry is back after a three-month shutdown, the Dodge brand is ready to announce a couple of new additions to the lineup. The first is a new 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition for the Challenger. Much of that model is a carry-over from the limited edition 50th Anniversary Edition released earlier this year in a very limited number made in various high-impact colors. Instead, the model is being opened up to some other features as well as other colors in an unlimited production run for the rest of 2020. We will dig more into that package on Sunday evening.
The other new addition is a new color called “Smoke Show”. Smoke Show (paint code PAE) joins five new exterior color options for the 2020 Dodge Challenger and Charger lineup after the addition of Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, Frostbite, and Gold Rush (which was available on the limited edition 50th Anniversary Edition of the Challenger).
These five new colors were first shown to the public as concept colors, two years ago at the FCA Design Color Clinic at the annual Spring Festival of the LXs in Pomona, California. The color was originally known as “Garbage Can” during the clinic. This year’s event was to feature the introduction of even more new colors for feedback about introducing them in the future, unfortunately, that event was postponed due to the COVID-19 (or Coronavirus) pandemic.
Smoke Show ultimately replaces Destroyer Grey in the Dodge Charger and Challenger lineup and is available for ordering now at your local Dodge dealer. The new color will be available on all trim levels for both Charger and Challenger models.
