Dodge is well known for building proper modern-day American muscle cars with bold styling and even bolder horsepower. For 2019, the Dodge brand of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is celebrating the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces with all-new Stars & Stripes Editions, available on select versions of the iconic Charger and Challenger models.

“Dodge is known for delivering custom looks straight from the factory. We also have a strong following of buyers who are in the military, as well as many buyers who are patriotic,” said Steve Beahm, Head of passenger car brands as well as parts and service (MOPAR) at FCA North America. “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,” Beahm noted.

According to a study performed by the research company mTAB, the Dodge brand has a higher percentage of buyers from the active military than any other major automotive brand. Knowing that fact, FCA North America decided to create these special-edition muscle cars as a salute to these brave men and women.

Dodge will introduce the Stars & Stripes Edition Challenger and Charger next week at the 2019 New York Auto Show. Rather than make the cars red, white and blue, these special editions will distinguish themselves with a unique Satin Black and Silver accent center stripe, Satin Black American Flag fender decals, 20 x 9-inch mid-gloss black wheels and black badging.

Inside, buyers will find Gloss Black interior accents, unique black-on-black cloth seats with an embroidered bronze star, dark brushed interior bezels, a unique antique bronze instrument panel badge, and bronze accent stitching throughout the vehicle.

The Stars & Stripes package will be available on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Charger Scat Pack — both boasting a 392 HEMI V8 engine generating a plentiful 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. The Challenger has a standard 6-speed manual transmission, while the Charger has an 8-speed automatic as standard equipment.

Also available as Stars & Stripes Editions are the Challenger and Charger R/T with its 375-horsepower HEMI V8, as well as the Challenger and Charger GT powered by Dodge’s 300-horsepower (305 horsepower on the Challenger) Pentastar V6 engine.
