SRT Introduces New Satin Vapor Edition for the Challenger, Charger and 300C in Chicago
The Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand of the Chrysler Group is all about high performance and exclusivity without the monster price of many competitive performance vehicles sold in America. To cater to the different tastes of prospective SRT buyers, the high performance brand has worked to offer special packages that take have varying types of features.
An example is the Core package for the Challenger, Charger and 300C which removes some of the features that are not needed for improved performance while also cutting down on the price. Another example is the Anodized Carbon Edition SRT Viper GTS that takes a more high end luxury approach with a striking matte black paint job and plenty of goodies on the inside.
In order to cater to those Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300C who want a car that stands out from the rest of the SRT crowd with a unique look, the SRT brand has introduced the new Satin Vapor Edition for those 392 cubic inch Hemi powered V8 Mopar muscle cars.
“We’re responding to the diversifying tastes of our performance enthusiast customers by expanding our product lineup to offer more custom models straight from the factory,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC. “Building on our core vehicle strategy, the Satin Vapor Edition models add some swagger with new, brand-exclusive finishes and content that augment the value proposition of our popular ‘Core’ price classes.”
First up is the new SRT Challenger Satin Vapor Edition. This special package adds 20x9 inch forged aluminum split five spoke rims with a new black satin vapor chrome finish, grey 392 Hemi badges, red Brembo brake calipers, satin black mirrors, a satin black fuel door, and the buyer’s choice of Bright White, TorRed, Header Orange, or Graphite exterior paint. On the inside, the SRT Challenger Satin Vapor Edition wears a set of leather seats with Nappa bolsters and suede center sections in charcoal along with a carbon fiber instrument panel bezel.
The SRT Challenger Satin Vapor Edition package adds $1,700 to the base price of the 2014 SRT Challenger.
Next up is the SRT Charger Satin Vapor Edition. On this four door muscle car, this new package adds 20x9 inch forged aluminum split five spoke rims with a new black satin vapor chrome finish, grey 392 Hemi badges, red Brembo brake calipers, a Satin Black Super Bee tail stripe, a Satin Black roof, a Satin Black hood (which isnt included in the image above), a Satin Black rear spoiler, Satin Black exterior mirrors and the buyer’s choice of Bright White, Billet Silver, TorRed and Graphite. On the insider, the Satin Vapor Charger wears black Nappa leather seats with black suede inserts and the 8.4L touchscreen infotainment system.
Due to the added features, the Satin Vapor Edition Charger SRT package costs slightly more than the Challenger, with an MSRP of $2,330.
Last, but certainly not least is the new SRT 300 Satin Vapor Edition. This four door luxo-muscle sedan includes the same wheels, grey 392 badges, red Brembo brake calipers, black mirrors, black hood, black roof and black spoiler as the SRT Charger Satin Vapor Edition along with an optional stripe package that is unique to the 300. Buyers can pick from Bright White, Billet Silver or Granite Crystal exterior paint.
Like the Challenger and Charger, the Satin Vapor Edition 300 wears seats with Nappa leather bolsters and suede inserts – all in black – with matte carbon and piano black accents throughout the interior. On the Chrysler 300 SRT, this package adds $2,300.
The Chrysler Group expects that this great looking package will begin showing up in dealerships sometime in the second quarter of 2014 – just in time for Mopar Performance lovers to get their new Satin Vapor Edition muscle car out in the spring air.
