For the past decade, Mopar has released a limited production Mopar-branded vehicle each year. Well, this morning Mopar is pulling the wraps off of their latest factory-customization vehicle, the Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger. This limited production run will include 100 units, 90 vehicles for the United States and 10 vehicles for Canada.
“Over the last decade, we’ve customized an impressive group of vehicles with exclusive Mopar performance parts and accessories that our enthusiast customers crave,” said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care, FCA – North America. “This year we’re commemorating our tenth Mopar build with another unique and collectible Dodge Challenger, which continues to be the modern muscle car every bit as beloved today as the first generation vehicle was 50 years ago.”
Based on the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, the Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger will feature several exterior and interior features, that will only be available on the limited production Mopar-branded muscle car. Powered by the Scat Pack’s 6.4-liter 392 cubic-inch HEMI V8 which makes 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, the Mopar ’19 is available is either a 6-speed manual which is standard or the optional quick-shifting TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. The car features a choice of two colors, White Knuckle or Pitch Black.
Starting on the exterior, the Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger features a unique take on the Dodge Challenger 392 HEMI® Scat Pack Shaker Shakedown graphics using the famed Mopar Blue color scheme. The graphics run from the front of the car, around the shaker hood scoop, and over to the rear decklid spoiler.
The Mopar Shaker Hood package is the center point of the car, which harkens back to the Challengers of the 1970s. A set of black Mopar hood pins add to the retro muscle car look. On the rear decklid spoiler, a black “Mopar Design” badge is fixed, showing that this is indeed a Mopar specific vehicle.
The car comes with low gloss black 20-inch x 9-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle P245/45ZR20 performance tires and features Mopar-branded center caps and valve stem caps. Mopar also has added a set of Mopar wheel locks on all Mopar ’19 Challengers.
The Mopar goodies don’t stop there. Under the hood of the Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger, the Mopar team added a Mopar cold-air-intake to enhance airflow to the 392 HEMI. The car also features a Mopar strut tower braces, to help increase the structural rigidity of the chassis. Mopar has also added silver-coated braces and strut caps and help dress up the underhood appearance of this unique Challenger.
Inside, the Mopar team gave the car a set of performance cloth seats with two-tone Mopar logo embroidered into the back of the seat. Custom premium Berber floor-mats and Mopar polished door-sill guards featuring the Challenger logo are also standard. Of course, a custom Mopar ’19 instrument panel badge with serial number finish of the subtle interior.
The Mopar ’19 also comes with an exclusive Owner’s kit, packaged with a “birth certificate” with the exact date of when the car was manufactured as well as the proprietary build number. The Owner’s kit also includes an exclusive Mopar ’19 booklet, a unique keepsake with the engraved vehicle number, and a Mopar ’19 rendering from the Mopar design team.
While last year’s Mopar ’18 Dodge Durango SRT was extremely pricy, Mopar has gone the modest route with the Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger.
