Chrysler To Bring Detroit Thunder, Mopar Style

With so much media coverage on the upcoming Dodge Dart, Chrysler has decided to diversify their new offerings in the form of true blue American muscle. And with these two latest additions to the Chrysler lineup consumers can’t possibly confuse the company’s brand image as a watered-down Italian carmaker. Instead, Chrysler is going back to its roots.

Queue Aaron Copland’s Rodeo, a throaty engine, screeching, and drifting tire smoke. Chrysler has announced plans to introduce a 200 Super S and Dodge Charger Redline by Mopar.

The Chrysler 200 Super S package is anticipated to be available for consumer purchase sometime in 2012 and comes in two separate package variants. Stage One emphasizes the vehicle’s appearance with fancy visual flares, a front spoiler, satin chrome trim, and sporty tires. Stage Two adds actual substance to the 200 with a coil-over suspension, cold air intake, and cat-back exhaust.

More of a meat and potatoes kind of enthusiast? The Dodge Charger Redline has enough protein and starch to satiate even the biggest muscle car appetite. Mopar will feature three available kits for the Charger, each more virile than the last. Similar to the 200 Super S, Stage One on the Charger includes aesthetic cues such as aerodynamic exterior components and interior accents. Stage Two throws some hot sauce on the grill with bolt-on performance parts that emphasize power, handling, and braking. Taking things a bit further, Mopar created a Stage Three for the Charger Redline which technically isn’t street legal – code for instant bragging rights.

How come? Stage Three incorporates a high-output version of the already-heady aluminum-block Gen III 426 HEMI V-8 which delivers roughly 590 horsepower and weighs 100 pounds less than the traditional cast-iron version.

“Since the 1960s, the Mopar Brand has built a long history of adding power and performance to the Dodge Charger – and with the Redline, we Moparized the new Charger with modern-day performance and style while giving a nod to our storied past,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “With three kits, Mopar offers a tailored choice for every customer.”

Much like a fine Italian suit, Chrysler can tailor us into a Stage Three Charger Redline any day.

These cars are very nice and are going to be a big hit when they come out.
