This lineup also has been equipped with 20-inch painted Mopar aluminum wheels and body-color grille with bright billets, in addition to the standard equipment which includes eight premium speakers with a 368-watt amplifier and 9-inch subwoofer, deep-tinted glass, Uconnect Phone, iPod Control, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, speed control and security alarm.

The Heat is priced at $23,995 (including $745 destination). The Detonator, which is priced at $25,995 (including $745 destination), comes with a hood decal, eight speakers plus subwoofer, remote start, ParkSense rear-park assist and color-keyed premium cloth interior that matches the exterior paint color.

At the top of this range is the Dodge Shock, which is priced at $26,995 (including $745 destination). Added features include the leather seats and a sun roof to the Nitro Detonator model.
