Mopar offers limited-edition ’11 Charger

by Bill Cawthon on

With the success of last year’s special Challenger, Mopar will create a limited-edition Dodge Charger outfitted with select high-performance parts and appearance items straight from the Mopar catalog.

“The Mopar ‘11 Charger takes the ‘head- turning’ factor up a few notches,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar. “By adding some of the most distinctive accessories to an already strong performer, we’ve created a special-edition car for enthusiasts.”

Powered by the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® with 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque, the specially equipped Charger includes the “Super Trac Pac” option that pushes the capabilities of the Mopar Charger in acceleration, handling and braking. Already powerful, the 5.7-liter has been tuned to extract the maximum amount of torque from the engine with the inclusion of a specially calibrated engine controller. The controller matches maximum engine power and transmission shifting to the differential for the Mopar ’11 Charger.

There’s a pistol-grip shifter for the five-speed W5A580 automatic and the Mopar ’11 Charger features Auto Stick, which allows the driver to select a higher or lower gear while the transmission controller helps prevent the possibility of over-revving. The differential has been boosted with a new 3.91:1 final-drive ratio for enhanced acceleration – unique to the Mopar Charger. Initial testing of the Mopar ’11 Charger has shown 0-to-60 mph blasts in the low five-second range.

Chassis enhancements include larger solid stabilizer bars, 30mm in front and 20mm in back, increased from 27mm and 16mm, respectively. Adding to the car’s overall stability and handling are cross-car braces located at both the front and rear shock towers. For increased luggage space, the rear tower-to-tower brace may be easily removed.

The Mopar ’11 Charger will be offered only in a “Pitch Black” finish with Mopar Blue racing stripes running from the front air dam across the hood and over the roof ending at the bottom of the rear fascia.

Mopar will build 1,000 units, 900 for the U.S. and 100 for Canada. The vehicle will be built in Brampton, Ontario, and completed at an upfit center in Windsor, Ontario. The Manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the limited-edition Mopar ’11 Charger is $39,750, which includes destination fee.

Customers who purchase a Mopar ’11 Charger will receive a personalized owner kit in a customized Mopar ’11 box. The kit will include a certificate with the vehicle identification number (VIN), exact date of manufacture and the number of the vehicle. The kit will also include a brochure that highlights the unique features of the vehicle, exclusive Mopar ’11 merchandise.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for just-auto.com, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
