Sneak Peak: 2011 Mopar Charger

Earlier this week, we got a preview of the latest Jeeps outfitted by Mopar, Chrysler's aftermarket parts arm. Well, Mopar's prowess isn't limited to trucks and off-roaders; it has plenty to offer Chrysler-group cars, too. One of those cars will debut around the same time as Mopar's Moab Jeeps—later this month at the New York Auto Show. It's the Mopar-ized 2011 Dodge Charger.

Mopar has been pretty picture-happy this week and has been less willing to divulge hard information on its latest special editions. So we don't have a whole lot of explanation to go by, meaning we'll have to fend for ourselves with our own eyes.

Here's about all the Chrysler partners had to say about the car through Mopar CEO Pietro Gorlier: "After the success of our Mopar '10 Challenger, we moved on to the iconic Dodge Charger and added even more performance. As a new company, we will continue to leverage the heritage of the Mopar brand at every turn."

More details will be released next week.

The new Charger is the second Dodge Mopar vehicle to be introduced, following last year's Dodge Mopar 2010 Challenger. Outside, the model gets a similar look, with a metallic blackish-charcoal paint job and an off-center, blue racing stripe that runs the full length of the body. Five-spoke wheels match the exterior paint.

Other than that, we don't see anything too drastically different from the standard 2011 Charger. Unlike with Mopar's open-top Jeep Wranglers, we can't see any part of the cabin on the Charger, leaving us until next week for the details. We'll also have to wait to see what "even more performance" equates to.

Whatever it is, we're sure it will have its fair share of badging.
