2011 Mopar Dodge Charger preview image

With the New York Auto Show just around the corner, Chrysler Group LLC issued a sketch of its new Mopar ’11 Charger. The company will release details of the vehicle later this month.

The rendering reveals a black and blue color scheme similar to that of the Challenger, though the side stripes have been replaced with a stripe that stretches across the hood, roof and trunk. Details are so sparse as to be non-existent, but we expect the 2011 Mopar Charger will consist of some performance accessories–perhaps a cold-air intake or stiffer suspension–and some styling enhancements.

Bespoke five-spoke rollers will likely measure 20 inches in diameter, and feature Mopar center caps. Katzkin leather seating is expected to grace the interior, with stitching matching that of the exterior stripe color, and Mopar embroidery found on the headrests.

“After the success of our Mopar ’10 Challenger, we moved on to the iconic Dodge Charger and added even more performance,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “As a new company, we will continue to leverage the heritage of the Mopar brand at every turn.”

Chrysler only offered 500 copies of the special edition Mopar model, which carried a base sticker price of $38,000.
