Go Mango: NEW Exterior Paint

Go Mango: Dodge Launches Modernized Exterior Heritage Color for 2016 Challenger and Charger SRT Muscle Cars


Dodge continues to answer enthusiast demand with the latest heritage-inspired exterior paint color
Dealers can begin ordering Go Mango immediately on Charger and Challenger SRT models


March 14, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



“Plum Crazy” purple, “B5 Blue” and “Sublime” green Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars have recently been streaming out of FCA US’ Brampton Assembly Plant, bringing a sense of nostalgia and powerful bursts of high-impact paint color to highways and dragstrips across the country.

Now, new for spring 2016 and shown for the first time this past weekend at the 11th annual Spring Festival in Irvine, Calif., Dodge is expanding its color palette with a new, modernized version of Go Mango exterior paint on 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT models. Dealers can begin ordering Go Mango immediately.

Go Mango was first introduced by Dodge on the iconic 1970 Challenger. Following a limited production run in 2006 on specific Charger R/T Daytona models, and more recently featured on the 2016 Dodge Dart, the next generation of the legendary and limited-edition exterior hue combines orange and red tones into a high-impact color that showcases the legendary Dodge performance attitude.


“Powerful performance cars like our Dodge Charger and Challenger demand high-impact colors,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Dodge muscle cars have a long history of unique paint colors with iconic names, and we’ll continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiast customers what they want.”

Go Mango is now available exclusively on the following 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger models:

Challenger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat – dealers orders open immediately
Charger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat – dealers orders open immediately


About the 2016 Dodge Challenger
The Dodge and SRT brands offer the most complete lineup of muscle cars in the market, including the 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT with its standard powerful and fuel-efficient Pentastar V-6 engine combined with the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission that delivers 305 horsepower and an estimated 30 miles per gallon on the highway; the 2016 Dodge Challenger R/T with the high-torque 5.7-liter HEMI® paired with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual transmission; and the 6.4-liter HEMI Challenger R/T Scat Pack that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual. The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 adds six-piston Brembo® front brakes, adaptive damping suspension and SRT Drive Modes to the same 6.4-liter naturally-aspirated HEMI powerplant while the Challenger SRT Hellcat with its 707 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine is most powerful and fastest muscle car ever.

About the 2016 Dodge Charger

As the most successful four-door fastback-styled muscle car on the market, the aggressively styled 2016 Dodge Charger remains in a class of its own, delivering performance, technology and refinement thanks to its TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that is standard on every model – from the SE to the SXT, R/T, R/T Road & Track, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392 and the SRT Hellcat. The 2016 Charger also offers a full range of fuel-efficient and powerful engine options, including the award-winning 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine, which delivers up to 31 highway miles per gallon (mpg) on SE and SXT models; the legendary 370-horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 on the R/T; the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, which punches out a best-in-class, naturally aspirated 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque in the SRT 392 and R/T Scat Pack models and the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine. The Charger SRT Hellcat delivers ultimate performance with 707 horsepower, 650 lb.-ft. of torque, a top speed of 204 miles per hour, and a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-certified, quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.0 seconds on street tires, making it the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world.

World’s First Dodge Challenger Hellcat Convertible Costs $139,000

April 5, 2016



It’s one thing hacking the roof off a regular Challenger V6, but doing so on a limited production Hellcat that spits out 707 horses and is capable of a ¼ mile run in the low 11s, well, let’s just say it’s not for the fainthearted.

The pictured Dodge Challenger Hellcat Convertible is the brainchild of John Iverson of Iverson Customs and the Iverson Chrysler Center dealership in Mitchell, South Dakota.


“As an avid collector and love for rare Mopars, I wanted to extend my collection with another one of a kind, first edition Mopar,” says Iverson. “As I was conducting business in our showroom where my 71 Barracuda Convertible sits on display, a thought crossed my mind to take the Hellcat one-step further. Even though the Hellcat was a one of a kind based on the first model year and on the options ordered, I wanted to make it more desirable. The idea of a convertible Hellcat was born.”

Iverson says he went through a few loops to secure a brand new Challenger Hellcat, even reaching out to FCA’s global head of design and former SRT boss, Ralph Gilles.

“I contacted some suits at Chrysler to arrange a meeting with the man behind the design of the Hellcat, Mr. Ralph Gilles,” explains Iverson. "My son Austen and I met him at a National Auto Dealer Association 20 Group meeting where we presented our idea. We obtained is signature approval for the first conversion to be created.”

While Iverson had the idea, he turned to Drop Top Customs, which specializes in turning fixed roof cars into convertibles (you’ve probably seen many of their creations like the Dodge Charger and Cadillac CTS) for the execution.

Now, after displaying the automatic model at various events where it clocked 555 miles, Iverson has listed the car for sale at his dealership for $139,900 or more than double the MSRP of the regular Challenger SRT Hellcat ($64,195).
