2019 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica 35th Anniversary Edition

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica 35th Anniversary Edition

A half-hearted attempt that we will all forget about within a day

It was not just Mazda which brought an anniversary edition model to Chicago Auto Show.The MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition might have stolen the limelight, but Chrysler and Dodge have launched anniversary editions of their minivans as well. Perhaps, they went unnoticed because they are humble minivans and not some fancy roadsters. Oh, automotive enthusiasts, thou art mean.

FCA Looking to "Wow" Chicago with A Pair of Special Edition Minivans

FCA Looking to "Wow" Chicago with A Pair of Special Edition Minivans

They may not be as popular as they used to be, but minivans are still cool!

Thirty-five years after introducing the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is honoring the minivan OGs with a pair of 35th Anniversary special edition models, featuring the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Chrysler Pacifica. Like most special edition models, the Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan 35th Anniversary Editions are packed with exclusive touches, including fancy paint finishes and special badges. All special edition features come in the form of packages. The special edition package is available to a range of Pacifica and Grand Caravan models, including the Pacifica Hybrid. Pricing details have yet to be released, but the 35th Anniversary packages for both the Pacifica and the Grand Caravan will be available sometime in summer of 2019. The Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan 35th Anniversary Editions will debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

2016 Chrysler 300S Alloy Edition

2016 Chrysler 300S Alloy Edition

The Chrysler 300S just got more sophisticated thanks to its new Alloy Edition package.

Launched in 2011, the second-generation Chrysler 300 received a facelift for the 2015 model year. The update brought a much larger grille, revised LED headlamps, a sportier rear end,and higher-quality materials on the inside. However, the facelifted second-gen 300 also came with a bit of bad news, as Chrysler decided to discontinue the Hemi-powered SRT model. Although the beefed-up sedan did get a similar refresh, Pentastar decided to sell it only in markets such as Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, and the Middle East.

With a third-generation model set to arrive sometime in 2017, you’d be tempted to think that the current 300 will be left to go out of production without much hubbub. Fortunately, Chrysler won’t let that happen just yet and the 300S Alloy Edition that’s scheduled to break cover at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show is proof that the full-size four-door is alive and kicking.

Available on the 300S trim with all-wheel drive and a choice of two drivetrains, the 300S Alloy Edition will be launched alongside a similar version of the smaller 200S.

“Chrysler brand embodies Detroit style, and our new 200S and 300S Alloy Editions are a perfect meld of our engineering innovation and craftsmanship, forged with cutting-edge colors and materials inspired by the Motor City’s ingenuity and creativity,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands of FCA North America.

2016 Chrysler 200S Alloy Edition

2016 Chrysler 200S Alloy Edition

Chrysler is offering a special edition 200S that will be available this spring.

Just a week after the world found out that Chrysler was dropping the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200, Chrysler announced the “Alloy Edition” of the soon-to-be-discontinued 200 sedan. It’s slated to debut next to the 300S Alloy Edition at the Chicago Auto Show this month, showcasing some unique accenting that includes a dark bronze and titanium finish inside and out.

In the press release announcing the 200S Allow Edition, Tim Kuniskis – the Head of Passenger Car Brands for FCA – said, “Chrysler brand embodies Detroit style, and our new 200S and 300S Alloy Editions are a perfect meld of our engineering innovation and craftsmanship, forged with cutting-edge colors and materials inspired by the Motor City’s ingenuity and creativity.”

Of course, one has to remember that the death warrant for the 200S has already been written, so even though Chrysler feels the 200S is an “athletically striking sedan with coupe-like proportions and a timeless look,” it’s not going to be around for long. So, will this new Special Edition be enough to increase sales and save the model from going down as a total flop? Well, probably not, but let’s take a look at what makes it special.

2014 Chrysler 300 SRT Satin Vapor Edition

2014 Chrysler 300 SRT Satin Vapor Edition

I already showed you the Charger SRT Satin Vapor Edition, and now I present the 300 SRT with the same package. Like its Charger sibling, the 300 SRT Satin Vapor model has a set of Black Satin Vapor Chrome-finished 20-by-9-inch, split-five-spoke wheels, and a series of satin-black elements that include the mirror caps, rear spoiler and roof. It also shares the red Brembo calipers and grey "6.4L HEMI" badge.

Buyers get three color choices for this special model — Bright White, Billet Silver and Granite Crystal — and they can also opt for a black body stripe for a little extra style.

Inside the cabin, the 300 SRT Satin Vapor Edition gets black Nappa leather-trimmed seats wiyh ultra-suede inserts, and matte-carbon and piano-black inserts in the instrument panel, door bezels and center console. Unfortunately, Chrysler didn’t give us any looks at the interior, but I am sure I’ll get a peek sometime soon, and I’ll share the images with you.

Under its hood, this special edition carries the same 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 that cranks out 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

The Satin Vapor model hits showrooms in the second quarter of this year at a $2,300 premium on the 300 SRT’s base price of $45,900. That comes to a grand total of $48,200.

2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core

2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core

Alongside the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 "Core", Chrysler also brought a “Core” version for the 300 SRT8 to the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Just like the Challenger model, the new 300 SRT8 Core version is also considerably cheaper than the standard 300 SRT8: $43,995 vs. $47,995.

Just like with the Challenger SRT8 "Core" version, the new 300 SRT8 Core has also been inspired by models like Charger SRT8 Super Bee and SRT Viper. The new 300 "Core" Edition receives special badges on the front fender, a set of upgraded wheels and on the inside, seating surfaces with the same "Ballistic" cloth inserts from the SRT Viper.

The $4k difference in the car’s price is given by the lack of all those fancy features you may have been used too, as the new Core editions were specially designed "with the back-to-basics performance driving enthusiast in mind."

2012 Chrysler 300 Mopar '12

2012 Chrysler 300 Mopar ’12

The last and arguably most impressive program Chrysler and Mopar built to celebrate the latter’s 75th anniversary is the Mopar 300, a comprehensive tuning program built for the Chrysler 300.

As a special edition model, the Mopar 300 is distinguished by a slew of aerodynamic and aesthetic modifications, including a new black chrome grille, tinted headlights, blue decal body stripes with matching special badging, and a new set of 20" wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. Meanwhile, interior modifications done on the Mopar 300 include perforated Katzkin leather seats, a thick-rimmed steering wheel with die-cast paddle shifters, carbon fiber trim, piano black accents, a new gear knob, an Alpine audio system, and a Uconnect Touch infotainment system.

Performance modifications include a sport-tuned suspension system, high-performance brakes, and revised gearing, improving the acceleration capabilities of the 300’s 363-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 engine from six seconds down to around five seconds.

Anybody looking to score a piece of this special edition, Mopar-tuned Chrysler 300 will get a chance to do so this summer when the car becomes available at a price of $49,700.
