More Dodge Challenger, Charger Models Get Go Mango

After offering the new Go Mango exterior color on the 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger exclusively in SRT 392 or SRT Hellcat form, the Chrysler Group has decided to begin offering this deep metallic orange hue on more trimlines – including the SXT, the R/T, Scat Pack and Shaker packages starting later this spring.

Just over a week ago we learned that the newest heritage exterior color for the 2016 Dodge Challenger and 2016 Dodge Charger would be Go Mango and it was available for order immediately – but only in SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat trim. In the short time since this deep metallic orange went on sale, almost half of all orders for the SRT trim Challenger and Charger checked the box for the limited edition Go Mango paint code. That is one of ten colors accounting for almost 50% of orders in the first week that it was offered.

Needless to say, the company is happy with this early success of Go Mango, so they have decided to expand this limited edition color to more trimlines in the Challenger and Charger lineup later this spring.

“We’ve seen a tremendous response from our customers after we announced the return of Go Mango at the 11th annual Spring Festival in California. In fact, nearly half of all SRT and Hellcat orders are for Go Mango,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “To meet consumer demand, we plan to expand this modernized heritage color to the entire Charger and Challenger lineup later this spring.”

Go Mango on More Challengers and Chargers
Today’s announcement didn’t state exactly which 2016 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger trimlines will be offered in Go Mango, but we know that there is a Challenger SXT and Charger SXT on display right now at the 2016 New York International Auto Show – so the V6 models are definitely getting Go Mango. Also, the image above included with today’s announced shows the Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker and the Charger R/T Road & Track in Go Mango, so we know that the Scat Pack, Shaker and R/T variants will get Go Mango. The only trimline really in question is the Charger SE, which comes with a shorter option list than any of the Charger trimlines.

One of the reasons that Go Mango has been so popular on the 2016 Challenger and Charger in SRT 392 and Hellcat trim may be the fact that it doesn’t add anything to the bottom line. In most cases, special edition paint codes come with a price hike – even if only a small one – but Plum Crazy Purple and Go Mango have both been free upgrades.

Go Mango is still available for order right now for the 2016 Challenger and Charger in SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat trim, but the rest of the trimlines will get Go Mango in their option list later this spring.
