For its 100th Anniversary, Dodge will be releasing some 100th anniversary special edition models. First out the gate will be the Charger and Challenger in January (base and R/T models). Not sure yet about any additional vehicles. No confirmed details yet, hopefully with such a milestone the packages will consist of more than just "stickers"...

Since they seem to have no leader in marketing, I'm sure this too will pass with very little fanfare. In reality this IS a big milestone, just waiting to be announced, too bad it won't happen.

Doubt it. GM has that role locked up more than likely.

One thing I've learned that you can apply to many situations, including this: If you go in expecting nothing, you can't be disappointed. This can be applied to Christmas or birthday gifts, or any other events.

What about 2014 being the 50th anniversary of the 426 ?
That would make a nice Mopar edition for the old Challenger going out .....

Not to be a downer, but don't expect nothing more than appearance.  Remember, anything more, will cost millions in re-certification processes for everything.  I would love to see HP/TQ increases, suspension tweaks, chassis tweaks, but, all we'll get is stickers.  I am guessing, unique paint and stickers plus unique interior badge with ID numbers engraved.

Yeah its true, but GM ran around when only Honda's ran. I do recall a lovely GTS being the pace car once.  I can only hope would be a cool 100/100 beside the fact it is a SRT now, last time it was Challenger things didn't go that well I think it is the only pace car to have wrecked

This would be the perfect time to drop the MY 2015 new sheet metal and engines !  THAT would make a statement in spades !

 

It's so sad the feds have their fingers in everything and we pay the costs thru higher prices !

I just noticed here: http://www.donlen.co...s-chrysler.aspx

There is talk of a Super 8 package on Avenger/200 (not sure which, as it doesn't specify).  Could this be part of 100th celebration?

30th year of minivan this year 2014. I thought maybe they should try to do something to celebrate and increase sales (like special packages). I guess they never thought of that though. Not many models can celebrate 30 years.

Somebody please explain, if at all possible, the idea behind "Super 8" as it might be applied to Avenger/200...
