Dodge launches exclusive Go Mango paint for 2016 Challenger and Charger SRT models

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 21, 2016

Dodge is expanding its color palette with the introduction of a modern version of heritage-inspired Go Mango exterior paint on 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT models. This new exterior paint color is now available exclusively on 2016 Challenger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat as well as 2016 Charger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat.

Dealers can already order this new Go Mango exterior paint color. Go Mango was first made available by Dodge on the 1970 Challenger. It was also offered, albeit on limited production run, in 2006 on certain Charger R/T Daytona models.

This paint color was most recently featured on the 2016 Dodge Dart. A modernized version of this next generation and limited-edition exterior color blend combines orange and red tones to showcase the vaunted Dodge performance attitude.

It was unveiled for the first time at the 11th annual Spring Festival in Irvine, Calif., Dodge. Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands (Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT) for FCA North America, remarked that performance cars like the Dodge Charger and Challenger should be wrapped in high-impact colors. He noted that Dodge muscle cars have been donning distinct paint colors with iconic names. He added that the carmaker will continue to access its paint code archive to satisfy the wishes of its enthusiast customers.

FCA has recently been producing uniquely colored Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars -- "Plum Crazy" purple, "B5 Blue" and "Sublime" green – from its Brampton Assembly Plant. The new 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT is a true-blue American muscle car powered by a dynamic yet and fuel-saving Pentastar V-6 engine paired to a TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission and provides 305 hp and an estimated 30 mpg on the highway.

The 2016 Dodge Challenger R/T, meanwhile, is powered by 5.7-liter HEMI engine mated to a TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual transmission. A more powerful version – the 6.4-liter HEMI Challenger R/T Scat Pack – provides up to 485 hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque and is available with either the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual transmission. Meanwhile, the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 comes specified with six-piston Brembo front brakes, and adaptive damping suspension.

Its 6.4-liter naturally-aspirated HEMI engine comes equipped with SRT Drive Modes. The Challenger SRT Hellcat is considered as most powerful and fastest muscle car to date, thanks to its 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 engine that provides up to 707 hp.

On the other hand, the 2016 Dodge Charger is considered as the most successful four-door fastback-styled muscle car. It features a new level of performance and technology as well as refinement. It could be availed with any of the available engines like the 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine that returns 31 mpg highway on SE and SXT models.

The 2016 Dodge Charger could also be powered by the 370-hp 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 (R/T model) and the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine that develops up to 485 hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque (SRT 392 and R/T Scat Pack models), as well as the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine.

On the other hand, the Charger SRT Hellcat – boasting of 707 hp of output and 650 lb.-ft. of torque – could sprint from zero to a quarter mile in 11.0 seconds on street tires and could go as fast as 204 mpg. All 2016 Dodge Charger models -- SE to the SXT, R/T, R/T Road & Track, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392 and the SRT Hellcat -- are fitted with the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
