For a limited time, Challenger SRT and Challenger R/T Classic models can now be ordered with Plum Crazy paint (PHG). Black Dual Wide Side Stripes are standard, or customers can choose the optional NEW White Dual Wide Side Strip (sales code MEH). Additionally, the White Dual Wide Side Stripe is also available on Brilliant Black painted R/T Classic Models. For the interior, Plum Crazy R/T models will have Plum stitching on the seats while SRT models will have a Plum seat stripe. MSRP Pricing for the Plum Crazy option on the R/T models is $225, and $500 on the SRT models.

The previous Challenger “high impact” color, Detonator Yellow, starts production on November 16th but ordering is now closed. B-5 Blue is also out for the model year.

Dodge Challenger Rallye

Another new Challenger option, for R/T manual transmission models, is the Super Track Pack. This package features full-Off ESP mode, Goodyear 245/45ZR20 BSW performance tires, High-Performance Suspension with Load Leveling and Height Control, Performance Steering with variable displacement, and Anti-Lock 4-Wheel HD Disc Brakes. MSRP for the Super Track Pack is $400.

In other news, ordering restrictions on the 4.0 liter V6 minivans – the ones that get the best mileage of any minivan in North America – have been lifted. In addition, dealers can order the 2010 Caliber, which will (possibly with late availability) have an optional automatic temperature control.

The trailer brake control on Ram 1500 temporarily unavailable due to inability to get the parts.

2015 300 spotted

Robert C. Evans wrote, “I caught these right outside my office this morning. It appears to be an updated 2015 Chrysler 300, with a much larger front grill than the current generation. It seems it is almost returning to the original 300 grill and squared off front end. You will also see integrated exhaust in the rear much like the 2015 Chrysler 200.” Most of the sheet metal should be similar to the current version, as the 2015 will be a relatively minor refresh — except for the use of eight-speed automatics across the board and UConnect upgrades....

The ringtone can be heard and downloaded from  www.drivesrt.com/hellcatringtone.
