The term “American Muscle” is most often applied to suped-up cars, but it also applies to the brave men and women who serve in the American armed forces. Dodge announced a special edition of their 2019 Challenger and Charger that brings both meanings of American Muscle together.
Available in the GT, R/T, GT RWD, and Scat Pack models of the Challenger and Charger, the Stars & Stripes edition muscle cars pays tribute to the United States military. The cars feature a satin centre stripe that runs from the grille to the trunk. A U.S. flag decal is added to the fender, which sits of 20-inch wheels with bronze finish on the Brembo 4-piston brake callipers.
The inside matches, with black cloth and bronze stitching on everything from the steering wheel to the door panels. The seats also feature bronze embroidered stars.
“Dodge is known for delivering custom looks straight from the factory,” explains Steve Beahm, head of passenger-car brands for Dodge’s North America market. “We also have a strong following of buyers who are in the military, as well as many buyers who are patriotic. The Stars & Stripes Edition is an opportunity to deliver a custom look with unique elements that speak to those performance enthusiasts who want to extend their passion for their country to the Charger and Challenger.”
The package adds an additional USD$1,995 to the base price of the car.
