The 2021 Dodge Challenger can now be yours with its iconic Gold Rush painting. Available in Challenger T / A, T / A 392, SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye, the golden painting honors the 50-year-old Challenger models unveiled last year.
“Dodge offers a wide variety of performance models and engines, but we also have the same mindset when it comes to our extensive exterior color options,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Director of Alfa Romeo and Director of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, FCA – North America.
“By bringing Gold Rush back to some of our 2021 Challenger models, we are giving our enthusiasts one more option to make their muscle car even more unique,” added Kuniskis.
Challenger’s new Gold Rush paint joins other historical-inspired shades like TorRed, Sinamon Stick, Frostbite, Hellraisin, Go Mango and F8 Green. In addition, Dodge is presenting some new options for the 2021 Challenger. The new Challenger R / T Scat Pack Shaker and T / A 392 is now available with the Widebody package.
Meanwhile, Brembo brakes on the Challenger SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye now receive the SRT mark on the calipers, while the 20-inch wheels are now standard on the Challenger GT AWD. The same 20 inch rollers are optional on the Challenger SXT AWD.
The newest Gold Rush paint from Dodge is a free option, although the car must have the black satin hood, roof and trunk – all of which are standard on the Challenger T / A models. Also standard is a 5-inch V8, 7 liters on the Challenger T / A, while the T / A 392 has a 6.2 liter Hemi V8 producing 485 horsepower and 475 foot-pounds of torque.
Of course, the Challenger SRT Hellcat remains one of the most powerful four-door sedans on the market. It has a 392-cubic-inch supercharged Hemi V8 with 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
If that’s not enough, the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye will satisfy your whims with its 797 horsepower Hemi V8. The Dodge Challenger is a survivor in this SUV-crazy world. Dodge sold more than 66,700 Challenger units in 2018 and sold more Challengers in mid-2019 than ever before.
Part of that success has something to do with its available V8 power, but the Challenger remains a practical vehicle in the real world. It offers more than enough space for five adults and cargo, and has the aura of its vintage ancestor.
Order books are now open for Dodge’s 2021 Challenger Gold Rush, while first deliveries arrive in early 2021.
