Go Fast and Go Mango: Dodge Revives A Classic Color
If your mouth is watering just looking at the newest color offered on the 2016 Dodge Charger and Challenger, you’re not alone – we’re right there with you. (Re)introducing the Go Mango paint option, newly displayed at the 11th annual Spring Festival in Irvine, California, and made immediately available to drivers nationwide; this classic color takes its cues from the original 1970 Dodge Challenger. If you’ve been looking for a way to make your muscle car stand out from the crowd, this stylish and retro hue could be just the thing to give your Dodge that extra edge when rolling through the neighborhood.
When the original 1970 Challenger hit the scene, it was a direct challenge to industry leaders like the Mustang, the Camaro, and other now-classic models built in the height of the muscle car era. With a powerful engine and a highly enviable Go Mango paint job – complete with black racing stripes – this founding father offered stiff competition and created a legacy that continues to this day.
Now, finally, modern drivers can get in on this classic style – and fuse it with all the incredible power, style, and tech offered on today’s Challenger and Charger models. With a creamy, bright appearance and the distinction of classic black racing stripes along the hood, this iconic hue offers a high-impact style and delivers just the right amount of nostalgia to seamlessly combine retro authenticity and an undeniable modernity.
Dodge fans haven’t seen the Go Mango since an extremely limited run of specific Charger R/T Daytona models in 2006, but now a decade later we can all enjoy this incredible color on the Charger and Challenger as well as some limited 2016 Dart models. Utilizing just the right combination of red and orange hues, Go Mango offers a distinct style you won’t find often out on the open road.
The re-introduction of Go Mango continues with an iconic Dodge tradition of unique colors, including “Plum Crazy” purple, “B5 Blue” and “Sublime” green all available on the 2016 Charger and Challenger. High demand for the Go Mango option has influenced Dodge to expand the availability for the color, which was originally open only to the SRT editions of the Charger and Challenger. After nearly half of all SRT orders started requesting the Go Mango option, Dodge decided to expand the color to the entire Charger and Challenger lineup, a decision announced at the New York Auto Show this spring.
“Dodge muscle cars have a long history of unique paint colors with iconic names,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America in a press release, “and we’ll continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiast customers what they want.”
While Dodge lovers who look for a distinct style out on the road know there’s no better option than these renowned muscle cars, adding that touch of tasty style with the Go Mango paint option only boosts this car’s vintage appeal.
