    FCA celebrates 80 Years of Mopar with the debut of Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. This is an extremely limited run with 80 units of each color being built. Each vehicle has hand painted trim and will be available in Pitch Black/Billet Silver and Pitch Black/Contusion Blue. The 80-car run in each color commemorates 80 years of Mopar.

    The Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger joins an exclusive club as the eighth limited-edition, Mopar-modified vehicle delivered straight from the factory.

    “Since its birth in 1937, Mopar has evolved from the name of an antifreeze product to a global customer-care brand,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global. “The Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger, our latest limited-edition vehicle, is a testament to this philosophy, showcasing how Mopar assists owners in personalizing all FCA US vehicles.”

    Heading inside, performance seats customized with Tungsten Mopar logos embroidered on the seatbacks dress up the Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger.

    Each Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenge has a 6.4-liter, 392 HEMI® engine that makes 485 horsepower and 475 lb-feet of torque. Adding to the performance and engine noise, each Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger will have a Mopar cold-air intake package. There will be a Mopar Shaker Hood package on all vehicles and they will all have a 6-speed manual transmission.

    “20 x 9-inch aluminum wheels are embellished with semi-gloss accents, and center caps feature the Dodge logo. Standard chrome exhaust tips are replaced with Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat black exhaust tips.” In addition: “Mopar Shaker strut tower braces and caps are silver powder-coated and increase rigidity and handling of the Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger. Four-piston Brembo brakes provide stopping power.” – – FCA Media

    The rear decklid spoiler of the Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger receives the Pitch Black treatment, and the Mopar Design badge on the spoiler is turned black-on-black. Standard chrome exhaust tips are replaced with Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat black exhaust tips.
