Mopar Insiders spent the day with the FCA at the displays at the Chicago Auto Show, earlier today. While the primary focus was on the launch of the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Chassis Cabs and the all-new Ram Multi-Function Tailgate, the Dodge brand quietly rolled out two Sublime beauties for the public to see.
The 707 horsepower 2019 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT looked amazing in the high-impact heritage color. While the color isn’t exactly a copy of the popular high-impact color from the 1970s, the modern Sublime has a lot more gloss and really shined under the McCormick Place lights. Equipped with the optional black hood and the low gloss black 5-spoke SRT wheels the four-door muscle door looked menacing. The only thing that we wished Dodge would have done was blacked out the rear spoiler on the trunk lid.
The second car Dodge rolled out in the special color, was a 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. No widebody here, the 485 horsepower two-door muscle car looked even better from its 2015 Dodge Challenger offering with the color. This particular car was equipped with the Dynamics Package (which adds 6-Piston Brembo Front Brakes, 275/40ZR20 All-Season Performance Tires and 20-Inch x 9.5-Inch Low-Gloss Black Forged Wheels that come as standard equipment on the Challenger SRT HELLCAT) as well as the new SRT Performance Rear Spoiler.
The pair of Dodge muscle cars were surrounded by colors like IndiGo Blue, Plum Crazy and Triple Nickel on the show floor. But the Sublime cars were the ones to get all the attention. Sublime was first introduced during the 1970 model year on all Dodge vehicles except the Polara and Monaco models. In 2007, Dodge produced a limited number of Charger R/T Daytona models with Sublime exterior. Most recently, Sublime was available across the Dodge Challenger vehicle lineup during the 2015 model year.
Dodge dealers can now order Sublime on 2019 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models this month.
