Dodge Offers Mango Color for Charger, Challenger Vehicles; Chrysler Unveils Sport Package for 300S


After introducing the Go Mango exterior paint color option — an orange/red color combination — for 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT models last week, Dodge announced it will now offer the paint color to its entire Charger and Challenger lineups.

“We’ve seen a tremendous response from our customers after we announced the return of Go Mango at the 11th annual Spring Festival in California,” says Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger car brands Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat at FCA — North America. “In fact, nearly half of all SRT and Hellcat orders are for Go Mango. To meet consumer demand, we plan to expand this modernized heritage color to the entire Charger and Challenger lineup later this spring.”

Kuniskis says Go Mango was first introduced by Dodge on the 1970 Challenger. More recently, it was offered on a limited production run in 2006 on specific Charger R/T Daytona models, and on the 2016 Dodge Dart.

The 2016 Dodge Charger SXT and Challenger SXT in Go Mango are on display at the New York International Auto Show.
