When you think of the classic Dodge Charger and Challenger of the 70s, one of their most popular colors (aside from Plum Crazy) was Sublime Green or Sublime for short. Since then, Dodge has not really offered the loud color scheme as standard factory color option on vehicles. Instead, Sublime has only appeared in special, limited edition models of the Charger and the Challenger.
For 2019 however, Sublime returns once more as a factory color option for both the Challenger and the Charger. This marks the first time that the color will be offered on the Challenger Widebody. With the re-introduction of the Challenger T/A, it also marks the first time the variant and color combo has appeared in Dodge’s books since 1970.
The last time Dodge offered the unique shade of green for the Challenger was back in 2015 as a one-year color only. For Charger fans, the wait has been longer because the color scheme was last offered on the special-edition Charger R/T Daytona in 2007; even predating the FCA merger.
“Our Dodge//SRT muscle cars give our customers what they want, an incredibly wide variety of performance models and high-impact color options. Whether it’s Sublime paint, all-wheel drive capability or 797 horsepower, Charger and Challenger stand out,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands—Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America.
Should the Sublime color way be too loud for your taste, Dodge still offers the Challenger and Charger in a number of different colors. To be exact, customers can choose from 15 different colors for the Challenger and 14 for the Charger including other wild color schemes such as Go Mango and Plum Crazy.
“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,” added Beahm.
Orders for the Sublime color scheme for the Charger, Challenger opens on February.
