Dodge is reaching back into its rich history and broad range of heritage colors. New again for the 2016 model year, Plum Crazy joins heritage and high-impact exterior colors range from B5 Blue to TorRed.

Seven different stripe options give Challenger drivers the ability to get instant customization straight from the factory.

Inspired by the iconic 1971 Challenger, all 2016 models take on a bold appearance that draws on the 1971 model's split-grille and split tail-lamp cues, updated wîth four signature LED headlamp halo surrounds offset by piano black trim. Single projector-beam headlamps at each front corner light the road ahead. High-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps are also available.

In profile, the 2016 Challenger's signature muscle car proportions and large thruster rear-quarter panels stand out from the crowd, while fender and belt lines tie together at the front and rear of the car to create a sleeker appearance. Twelve wheel designs are available, including a new for 2016 Hyper Black II finish to the lightweight forged-aluminum wheels.

A split tail-lamp design continues the historic 1971 model's inspiration. For a modern look, the Dodge brand's signature LED treatment creates a single ribbon of light within each lamp. A redesigned rear valance gives the 2016 Challenger wîth a widened, more planted appearance, while fascia-mounted exhaust tips provide a high-performance finished look.

Driver-focused interior sculpted wîth '71 Challenger cues
Inside the 2016 Dodge Challenger is an enthusiast designed cockpit, featuring world-class materials, execution and technology, also inspired by the interior of the 1971 Challenger.

To highlight the muscle car's performance abilities, the 2016 Dodge Challenger is designed wîth a performance cockpit that embodies the trapezoidal-themed exterior in an artistic and more organically styled way.

Dodge Challenger's cleanly executed instrument panel features an aluminum-stamped driver's bezel, which establishes the driver's cockpit. For a high-tech look, an innovative 7-inch TFT instrument cluster screen extends through the driver's bezel and provides a customizable display. The gauge cluster features an analog speedometer and tachometer that straddle the TFT customizable instrument cluster and provide a heritage-inspired 'tic-toc-tach' look wîth throwback radial numbering and concave shape. Additionally, the center stack neatly houses the 5-inch and available 8.4-inch Úconnect touchscreens.

A trapezoidal shaped aluminum-stamped high-sill center console provides Dodge Challenger's interior wîth a fresh, asymmetric look, while the leather-wrapped surface and French-seamed accent stitching exudes craftsmanship and style. With its unique elevated design, the center console houses additional controls for the Úconnect touchscreen above wîth ergonomically located redundant button and knob controls for audio and climate functions. A media hub wîth an SD card slot, ÚSB outlet and auxiliary audio input is neatly housed inside the center console's armrest.

Three available §teering wheels are each designed specifically for the performance driver.

The standard Dodge §teering wheel features a sculpted rim so the driver's hands have a sure grip at the 2- and 10-o'clock positions, while available paddle shifters (with automatic transmission) are located on the backs of the upper spokes.

The SRT-branded, tilt-telescoping, heated §teering wheel features a flat bottom for control through the tight handling corners. Available paddle shifters (with automatic transmission) are located on the back of the upper spokes. The buttons to control the full-color Driver Information Display (DID) cluster are large and illuminated. Buttons for Úconnect and phone access now reside along the bottom edge of the horizontal spokes.

Challenger offers performance seats wîth large side bolsters for maximum lateral support in hard cornering. For improved comfort and convenience, heated and ventilated front seats in Nappa leather are available.

They include a wide variety of colors and materials, from throwback Houndstooth cloth to Ruby Red and Black, Tungsten and Black, and Pearl and Black premium leather sport and performance seats wîth accent stitching.

All-new Blacktop Appearance Group for 2016 Challenger models
Back by popular demand and continuing the Dodge brand's popular 'blacked out' appearance offering is the new Challenger Blacktop Package – now available for 2016 on Dodge Challenger SXT and SXT Plus models wîth 305 horsepower, or up to 375 horsepower wîth the HEMI V-8 powered Challenger R/T and R/T Plus models.

For a sinister look, Dodge Challenger Blacktop starts wîth large, 20-in. five-spoke Gloss Black aluminum wheels wrapped wîth all-season tires. Continuing the theme is the 1971-inspired split-grille in Gloss Black, while Satin Black finishes on the deck-lid spoiler and fuel-filler door provide an aggressive look. And, to make sure the Challenger Blacktop has a one-of-a-kind appearance, a new 'strobe' designed dual stripe runs from nose-to-tail and harks back to 'Mopar-or-no-car' nostalgia.

Inside, the Blacktop Package amplifies the sinister exterior styling through discrete and subtle dark finishes and appointments on Dodge Challenger SXT and R/T models. Inside, passengers will find a premium black cloth interior on Challenger SXT and R/T models and standard Nappa and perforated Nappa leather in black on SXT Plus and R/T Plus models.
