Dodge Challenger and Charger Get New Go Mango Paint Color

DG016_003MMc9lnvvv2q3e1ddo4aq623ishnk__mid

Dodge has been showing a lot of love lately to muscle car enthusiasts.  In recent months, they’ve released a series of nostalgic colors for the Challenger and Charger that appeal to the sense of nostalgia a muscle car driver typically has.  The “Plum Crazy” purple, “B5 Blue” and “Sublime” green colors are all meant to recall a bygone age of the muscle car.  Dodge is looking to expand that by adding additional colors.

Dodge unveiled at the 11th annual Spring Festival in Irvine, California that they’d be expanding the color palette of the Charger and Challenger SRT models with the Go Mango exterior paint.  This is a call-back to the iconic 1970 Challenger.

The new color combines red and orange tones and has a real high-octane look to it.  If you’re looking for a unique color for a Charger or Challenger, this new Go Mango paint really seems to stand out in a crowded field.

“Powerful performance cars like our Dodge Charger and Challenger demand high-impact colors,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Dodge Brand.  “Dodge muscle cars have a long history of unique paint colors with iconic names, and we’ll continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiasts customers what they want.”

2016 Dodge Durango is Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own Award!

2015 Dodge Durango - Dodgedealerny - 04

The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan has been named by Kelley Blue Book as a winner of its 5-Year Cost to Own Award.  This is the second time in three years that the Grand Caravan has been awarded in the minivan/van category.

The awards honor vehicles and brands that have the lowest projected ownership costs based on Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to On data.

“The original minivan, the Dodge Grand Caravan, remains the champ in 5-Year Cost to Own by essentially running the table on the key ownership cost attributes,” said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst.  “It costs less to buy; it is less costly to maintain, and it depreciates less rapidly than its minivan competitors.  Plus, it offers a variety of creature comforts unmatched by others in its segment.”

The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is one of the best-selling, most awarded minivans ever.  Its affordability and versatility has made it one of the most popular minivans on the market.  It has exclusive Super Stow ‘n Go seating allowing families that need to store additional things or have more seats for passengers in a matter of seconds.

Consumer Guide has handed Fiat-Chrysler some bragging rights for the near future.  On their 2016 Best Busy distinction list, the Dodge Durango earned a place on their ‘Best Buys of 2016’ list.

 

The 2016 Dodge Durango was placed on the ‘Large SUV Best Buy.’  This marks the fourth consecutive year that Consumer Guide has recognized the accomplished Durango.  It’s hard not to see why, the Durango has been widely regarded as one of the best large SUVs on the market.  Sales of the SUV has shown that drivers are still incredibly fond of it.

Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive, said about the numerous awards for FCA, “We are pleased to recognize FCA’s enduring success in the Large SUV and Large Pickup classes.  We are equally please to award the newest Jeep crossover Best Buy status for 2016.”

The Dodge Grand Caravan Continues Production Past 2016

Dodge Grand Caravan Continues into 2016 - DodgeDealerNY

When Chrysler put out their five year plan, one of the most noticeable things that would be happening was the Dodge Grand Caravan would be getting benched.  The reason, at the time, was that Chrysler wanted to do less in the brand family to compete against each other.  Rather than have multiple minivans, they would concentrate on a single one.  The winner of the minivan segment was the Chrysler Town & Country, meaning the Grand Caravan would be no more after 2016.  However, Automotive News stumbled across a production document that shows the Grand Caravan may have some life left in it.

The memo states that the Grand Caravan is still planned for 2017, being produced along with the redesigned Town & Country.  The new Town & Country is set to start its production at the Windsor, Ontario plant on Feb. 29th 2016.  The 2016 Grand Caravan is slated to start this August and to end production in August 2016.  The 2017 model of the Grand Caravan will then be almost immediately put into production on August 23rd, 2016.

Since the 2016 run will be brief, there is no slated changes for the newer Grand Caravan models.

Why does it seem that Dodge is going back on their plan to no longer produce the minivan?  Automotive News thinks it may have to do with wanting to make sure there is no market loss as the company shifts over to the Town & Country.  With the short production life, it may give Dodge the chance to cut production depending on how things go.  It will also allow the Grand Caravan to continue to sell in Canada where it is the number 1 selling minivan.

2015 Dodge Challenger, Charger Unveiled at New York International Auto Show

2015 Dodge Charger

Earlier this week, Dodge announced that the unveiling of the 2015 Dodge Challenger and Charger will be happening at the New York International Auto Show.

The show is open to the public Friday, April 18 thru Sunday, April 27, but the reveal of the new Challenger and Charger will happen during the press preview on Thursday, April 17. It is possible to see the reveal without a press badge, though. There will be a Livestream webcast at 11:30 AM EDT. To view the Livestream, click here.

A press release from Dodge hinted that Dodge’s major presence at the New York International Auto Show is a preview of what Dodge fans can expect with the brand’s upcoming 100th anniversary. In many ways, Dodge seems to be stepping up their game this year with the 2015 line-up. The Dodge brand is well-loved, and it would be easy to rest on their nostalgic laurels for their 100th anniversary. Instead, they are giving the 2015 Dodge Charger a “full-body makeover,” a gutsy move, and Dodge fans will get to give their thoughts on the new look after the reveal on April 17.

Dodge Challenger Featured in 138 Water Photo Shoot

Bo Osinski 1

Last month, the Dodge Challenger was featured in a very sexy photo shoot with Los Angeles model Bo Osinski.

The photo shoot was an advertisement for 138 Water, a bottled water brand, and it featured Bo Osinski posing in a mini-dress with a white Dodge Challenger. She stretched on the hood, posed on either side, and even took a look under the hood of the car. Maybe she wanted to catch a peek at the HEMI engine.

Bo Osinski 2138 Water is positioning itself as bottled water for celebrities, a fashion statement like a Gucci handbag. It makes sense that 138 Water would choose the Dodge Challenger for this photo shoot. The Dodge Challenger is a classic that looks great and still delivers on power and performance.

2014 Dodge Dart is a Best Bet for The Car Book

2014 Dodge DartFor the second year in a row, The Car Book has named the 2014 Dodge Dart as a “Best Bet,” an enormous honor for the popular compact car.

Out of a possible score of 10, the 2014 Dodge Dart received a 9 from The Car Book. Scoring is based on crash test results, rollover rating, repair costs, and many other studies from government and independent testing. In the categories of warranty coverage, rollover rating, fuel economy, and crash testing, the Dart earned a score of 8, and for having inexpensive repair costs, the Dart earned a 9.

Tim Kuniskis, the President and CEO of Dodge Brand, responded to the honor in a press release from Chrysler, stating, “The Car Book’s recognition of the Dart as a ‘Best Bet’ for two years running confirms what our customers are telling us. The Dodge Dart has unique combination of distinctive styling, fun-to-drive performance, up to 41 mpg, segment-leading safety features, and easy-to-use technology, all combined, making it a tremendous value.”

Other recent awards for the Dodge Dart include the Connected Car of the Year honors from Connected World Magazine, a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and Strategic Vision’s “Most Loved Vehicles in America.” Starting price for the 2014 Dodge Dart is $15,995.
