Go Mango is the New Orange for the 2016 SRT Challenger and Charger

The newest high impact color for the Dodge Challenger and Charger has been introduced, with the latest rendition of Go Mango joining the color palate for the 2016 SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat versions of the popular Mopar muscle cars – and this new orange hue is available for order today.

Over the past decade, the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger have each been offered with a long list of limited edition, “high impact” exterior colors. These special edition paint options with classic Mopar names have proven to be a huge success, with Sublime Green and Plum Crazy Purple both proving to be incredibly popular for the newest generation of the Challenger and Charger.

Now that the order banks for Plum Crazy have been closed for the 2016 Challenger and Charger, Dodge has moved quickly to roll out the next high impact color, with the return of Go Mango.

“Powerful performance cars like our Dodge Charger and Challenger demand high-impact colors,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Dodge muscle cars have a long history of unique paint colors with iconic names, and we’ll continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiast customers what they want.”

Go Mango Returns
When the Dodge Challenger was first introduced back in 1970, Go Mango was one of the uniquely-named exterior color options and like the other high impact colors with classic names, Go Mango was popular when it returned for the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona. There were 4,210 Chargers ordered in Go Mango back in 2006, making it the 3rd most popular of the high impact colors on the modern Charger (according to Chrysler) – trailing only TorRed, Toxic Orange and Top Banana.

Go Mango has never been offered on the modern Dodge Challenger, but on the official list of modern high impact colors from Chrysler, Hemi Orange ranks second – trailing only TorRed. Header Orange is 6th and Toxic Orange is 7th on the list of 18 colors, showing that orange hues have been very popular on the Challenger since it returned for 2008.

While I have not seen either of the Go Mango 2016 Dodge muscle cars in person, the cars in the image above appear to be wearing a very different color from the 2006 Go Mango. Back in 2006, the Charger Daytona’s in this fruity name were a very dark metallic orange – almost more of a bronze or copper color. On the other hand, the new Go Mango is still metallic, but this orange hue is much lighter, looking more like a deeper rendition of Hemi Orange than a new Go Mango.

However, semantics aside, the 2016 Challenger and Charger in this new brighter Go Mango look pretty incredible in this sole picture – and I bet that this metallic orange paint will really glow in the bright sunlight. When coupled with the 2016 model year Hellcat carbon fiber stripes, the new Go Mango will surely serve as a popular replacement for Plum Crazy Purple.

Price and Availability
This stunning new Go Mango paint option is available on the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT 392, the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the 2016 Dodge Charger SRT 392 and the 2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. The order banks for Go Mango are open right now, so as soon as you finish reading this, you can run to your local Dodge dealership to place an order for your new SRT muscle car in metallic bright orange.

Best of all, this gorgeous bright metallic orange comes with no additional upcharge in pricing, so having a limited edition exterior paint won’t add anything to the bottom line. Plum Crazy and Sublime sold like crazy, and I expect that this new Go Mango will be every bit as popular as bright green and purple.
