Mopar Is Celebrating A Decade of Customization with a Limited-Edition Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger Vehicle
Mopar celebrated a decade of its factory-vehicle customization with the unveiling of the Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger. The Mopar ’19 Challenger is based on the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, which carries several of its exterior and interior features which are only available on this limited production of the Mopar-branded muscle car.
“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 Head of Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA – North America, Mark Bosanac. “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.”
Mopar 2019 Exterior:
The exterior is available in either White Knuckle or Pitch Black, and the Mopar 2019 Challenger is built upon the simplified model of the R/T Scat Pack which has a variety of impressive exterior touches. The most noticeable is the unique Mopar Shakedown graphics which are accented with the asymmetrical Mopar Blue center stripes that are at the top of the front fascia to the rear decklid spoiler. The popular Shaker Hood package by Mopar provides a hint of vintage styling with an active, air-gulping scoop flanked with Shaker badges on both sides.
Functional black hood pins provide a classic look. Out back, the rear decklid spoiler carries a unique Mopar Design badge. Standard 20-inch x 9-inch forged-aluminum wheels riding on Goodyear P245/45ZR20 performance tires are enhanced with genuine Mopar-branded center caps, and valve stem caps and Mopar wheel locks are standard.
Mopar ’19 Performance:
The 392-cubic inch HEMI V-8 engine delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. It has a standard six-speed manual transmission that makes a powerful statement that enhances the base of the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, and as an option, there is the quick-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. A Mopar cold air intake delivers performance-enhancing airflow to the engine. Mopar strut tower braces help increase the structural rigidity of the chassis for sharper handling, and the braces and strut caps are silver-coated to dress up the underhood appearance.
Mopar ’19 Interior:
The front cloth seats have a two-tone Mopar logo which is embroidered into the seatbacks. There is a custom Mopar ’19 instrument panel badge that adorns the passenger-side air vent. And completing the standard interior accessories are the polished dorr-sill guards with the Challenger logo and the premium Berber floor mats.
The Mopar ’19 has an exclusive Owner’s Kit, which comes packaged with a “birth certificate” which has the proprietary build number and the exact date of the manufacture. There is also an exclusive full-color Mopar ’19 booklet and a unique keepsake with the engraved vehicle number. The Mopar design team produces a Mopar ’19 rendering.
The Decade of the Customization:
The Mopar ’19 Dodge Challenger joins the club as the 10th limited-edition, Mopar-modified vehicle. This limited production run will include 100 units, in which 90 vehicles are for the U.S market, and ten vehicles are for Canada. Mopar produced the first vehicle of an ongoing series of limited-edition vehicles in 2010, which was the Mopar ’10 Dodge Challenger.
Other low-run, factory-produced Mopar rides have followed. The Mopar ’11 Dodge Charger, Mopar ’12 Chrysler 300, Mopar ’13 Dodge Dart, Mopar ’14 Dodge Challenger, Mopar ’15 Dodge Charger R/T, Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel, Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger and Mopar ’18 Dodge Durango. And since 2010, Mopar has produced more than 4,000 exclusive edition models.
