You can see them in person at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
Be sure to wear your sunglasses to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Dodge will be on-site with some very bright vehicles that haven’t been seen in dealer showrooms – on cars at least – for some time now. Yes, Sublime returns as a factory exterior color option for both the Challenger and Charger in 2019. It’s available across the board, though with the reintroduction of the Challenger T/A, it the first time the submodel/color combo has appeared in Dodge’s order books since 1970. That's pretty darned cool.
We last saw the day-glo shade of green in 2015 for the Challenger, but the wait for Charger fans has been even longer. Sublime last appeared on the four-door in 2007, and even then it was just a limited edition color for the Charger R/T Daytona. That long predates the FCA merger, never mind more aggressive production models like the Scat Pack or SRT Hellcat. As such, the color is also available for the first time on the Challenger Widebody.
“Our Dodge//SRT muscle cars give our customers what they want, an incredibly wide variety of performance models and high-impact color options,” said Steve Beahm, head of FCA’s passenger car brands in North America. “Whether it’s Sublime paint, all-wheel-drive capability, or 797 horsepower, Charger and Challenger stand out. By bringing back a high-impact color like Sublime across the 2019 Challenger and Charger lineups, we’re continuing to give our enthusiast customers another way to make their muscle cars even more unique when they showcase the legendary Dodge performance attitude.”
If Sublime isn’t your cup of tea, Dodge still offers the Challenger in 15 different colors and 14 for the Charger, including wild shades such as Go Mango and Plum Crazy. While both hold significant places in Chrysler history, many would argue that Sublime is the definitive Mopar color-of-choice.
Order banks for Sublime-optioned cars open in February.
