Popular Color Ends Production This Month On Challenger, Charger, and 300:

Destroyer Grey/Ceramic Grey Color Will End Production At The End Of August...

For those fans of the popular color Destroyer Grey, August is your last month to order the popular color on Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, and Chrysler 300 Series cars. That’s right, both the Dodge and Chrysler brands have announced to their dealer network, that the popular color will not return for the 2020 model year and that ordering for the color will end at the end of the month.

Destroyer Grey was first introduced on the 2015 Dodge Challenger GT AWD Concept car, testing feedback from potential customers at the Speciality Equipment Motorsports Association (SEMA) show back in November of 2015. The color then was added to the color palette in the 2017 model year.

On Chrysler 300 Series cars, the Destroyer Grey name was replaced with Ceramic Grey but still carried the same paint code of PDN. Ceramic Grey has proven to be a very popular color for the 300, with a 9% take rate on the large Chrysler sedan.

While Dodge has had certain colors leave the lineup, to return in the future. However, it usually takes a few years for them to do so. A great example is Sublime, which was on the Challenger for 2015 model year, but just made a temporary return for part of the 2019 model year for both the Challenger and Charger models. The color will continue on other certain models like the 2020 Dodge Durango.
