Stellantis And Mopar Had Some Pretty Darn Sweet Concepts At The 2021 SEMA Show
The SEMA Show plays host to hundreds of vehicles from automakers and aftermarket companies from all across the globe. One of the most consistent groups to take part at the show is Stellantis with Mopar. Most of its brands – especially Jeep – always turn heads with some fantastic concepts. This year was no exception as the auto group brought seven different concepts from Jeep, Ram, and Dodge to the recently concluded event at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Mopar will bring seven concept cars at this years SEMA Show, including the very cool looking Challenger Holy Guacamole. The concept is based on the limited-production Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody 50th Anniversary edition, and, according to Dodge it combines the best of two worlds.
2020 Dodge Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition
The Dodge Challenger is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and Dodge is rolling out a special treat for fans of the muscle car with the Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition.

Only 70 units will be built in each color for each trim. That adds up to a total of 1,960 units. The cost of the 50th anniversary trim will vary depending on the Challenger trim.

2019 Dodge Lowliner Concept by Mopar
Thanks to shows like SEMA, aftermarket companies are able to exercise their creative sides in bringing out the funkiest concepts which, otherwise, wouldn’t have garnered a lot of attention. And, when the products are from brands like Mopar, you know that you’re in for a treat. Mopar will be bringing two concept trucks to the SEMA – a Dodge D200-series ‘Lowliner’ pickup truck and a 1500 Rebel-based concept. We’ll be talking about the former one here, and to say the least, Dodge sure had fun reimagining this truck from the 1960s.
A Dodge Viper Drifting in the Rain is a Treat For All Of Us
It’s been a few weeks since the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed, and we’re still getting a steady diet of videos from the event. Not that anyone’s complaining, least of all me. I’ve come to enjoy these video parachutes, and one that we haven’t seen yet is this video of a Dodge Viper drift car that partook in the hill climb. Driven by drifter extraordinaire Dean Kearney, the Viper drift car snakes its way up the hill climb in ways only the Viper can. Extra points also go to Kearney, who managed to complete the hill climb even in the middle of a rain-soaked course. Then again, Kearney’s not your average drifter — he’s a veteran of Formula DRIFT — and this particular Viper is not your typical drift car, either. Check out the video and watch the Viper going sideways in the rain. It’s worth the next two minutes of your mornings.
2019 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Stars & Stripes Edition
The Dodge Challenger Stars & Stripes Edition is a special-edition package for the 2020-model-year Challenger. Essentially a visual upgrade with some unique features, the Stars & Stripes Edition pays tribute to the men and women who served the United States. The package is available with three trims, the GT RWD, R/T, and the R/T Scat Pack.
Dodge says it launched this package because it has the highest percentage of active military buyers in the industry, while the Challenger and Charger have the highest percentage of active military buyers in their respective segments. Let’s find out what this package adds to the muscle car in the review below.
2019 Dodge Charger
Dodge vehicles have always been known for their bold, in-your-face looks. To spice things up a little, Dodge has decided to bring back the lime green color that was seen on almost all the Dodge cars in the 1970s, and it’ll do so at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. With the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 and the Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE being in the news lately, is this a move out of desperation? Perhaps, Dodge has taken up the ’challenge’ to ’charge’ its range. Bad pun, eh?
Update 02/14/2019: We’ve updated this review with images and video of the lime green 2019 Dodge Charger taken at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Check them out for yourself in the gallery at the bottom of this page!
2019 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica 35th Anniversary Edition
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.
One of Dodge’s Most Iconic Paint Colors is Making a Comeback at the Chicago Auto Show
Don’t expect to see a new Dodge Challenger or even a new Dodge Charger at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. But Dodge is bringing a Challenger and a Charger to the Windy City anyway; it’s just that the headline act isn’t either of the two performance cars. It’s the paint they’re wearing, which Dodge calls “Sublime.” The importance of the paint scheme shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who remember it. The Sublime finish is arguably one of the most iconic paint colors that the Challenger and Charger have worn in their respective lifetimes. 2015 was the last time Dodge offered it on the Challenger, and we haven’t seen the Charger sport it since 2007. Now it’s back, and, according to Dodge, it’s available as a factory color option across the entire range of Challenger and Charger models.
Mopar’s Hellephant Crate Engine Proves 1,000 Horsepower Is the New Benchmark
When Bugatti first announced that it would equip the original Veyron with a 1,000-horsepower engine straight from the factory, the world stood still. It was a watershed moment for the car industry, a point in time where even the most uninterested of the automotive laymen were forced to take notice of what was happening.
In the nearly 15 years since the Veyron first hit production, the bar has consistently been raised, and now internal combustion is taking on ever-greater levels of performance. FCA just proved as much, with Mopar now offering the first-ever 1,000-horsepower crate engine from an OEM. If you think about it, four-figures right out the box is insane, but that’s the world we live in now. But the question is - how’d we get here, and where are we going?
2018 Dodge Super Charger Concept
The Dodge Super Charger is a concept car that marks the 50th anniversary of the second-generation Charger, produced for the 1968 to 1970 model years. Unveiled at the 2018 SEMA Show, the Super Charger is a restomod that combines the design of the original Dodge Charger with modern parts from Mopar and the Challenger SRT Hellcat and Demon. More importantly, it showcases a new Hemi V-8 engine that cranks out an incredible 1,000 horsepower.
The big news here is that the 7.0-liter mill is a crate engine that you’ll be able to buy from FCA starting in 2019. The Super Charger was created specifically for the massive mill, which was dubbed Hellephant as a tribute to the original Mopar 426 Hemi engine, nicknamed Elephant due to its size and power. Obviously, Hellephant combined both the classic Elephant and the modern Hellcat monikers. The Hellephant is also the first 1,000-horsepower crate engine offered by an OEM carmaker.

2018 Dodge Charger Evolution
Wisconsin-based Speedkore is the same performance company that built an absurd 1,650-horsepower Dodge a few years back. It was seen in the Fast and Furious movie as well. This time around, they’ve built a more balanced, calmer version of the same Dodge Charger and moniker’d it as the ‘Evolution.’ The Evolution packs half the power of its predecessor, but has more utility. Speedkore claims that the Evolution represents “the most advanced 1970 Dodge Charger” anywhere on the globe, which may actually be true. Speedkore is known to play with carbon fiber and has used its skills on this beast as well. Despite the heavy engines and strong body, the company has built a muscle car that weighs just about 3,200 pounds - that’s anywhere between 228- and 638-pounds lighter than the original 1970 Dodge Charger!
