Dodge Challenger is making their Shaker cars even more outstanding. The company is now adding new Shakedown package stripes. Dodge turned a lot of heads in 2016 when the company decided to bring one of their custom 1971 Dodge Challengers and display it at the SEMA show that’s called the Shakedown. The vehicle the company brought seamlessly combined the classic Challenger body with parts from the modern Challenger. The combination was such a huge success, Dodge was inspired to give buyers the opportunity to get one that looks just like it. And, if you want to get your own Dodge Challenger, you can head down to¬†Chapman Las Vegas Dodge and see one for yourself.

The Dodge Challenger at the SEMA show had a shaker hood scoop as well as a group of stripes on one side. The size of the stripes gradually decreased and gave the vehicle a feeling of movement and vibration. That unique design clearly got a good reception from Dodge Challenger fans. So much so that Dodge has decided to produce a set of stripes similar to the ones it used of the show car and offer it on their modern Shaker Challengers. The stripes are now available as part of a package that bears the Shakedown name.

Dodge is now making this new Shakedown package available for 2018. However, it will only be available on the Dodge Challengers that come with what’s called the shaker hood scoop. The vehicles included in this group are the Dodge R/T Shaker, as well as the R/T Plus Shaker and the 392 Scat Pack Shaker. And just like they were on the concept vehicle, all of the new stripes are on only one side of the car and they wrap around the Challenger’s iconic hood scoop. One difference between the concept car and the production model is that all the stripes are one color. On the ’71 custom car, one of the stripes was red.

Along with adding the stripes as part of the Shakedown package, the Challengers will also feature white-face gauges as well as an Alpine audio system that features significant upgrades. The Alpine audio system on the new models of the R/T and the R/T Plus comes with a 275-watt amplifier in combination with six speakers. On the new Scat Pack, there’s a booming 506-watt amplifier and nine speakers scattered about the vehicles as part of the Alpine audio system. This is enough to turn the Scat Pack into a party on wheel and keep the occupants and everyone within earshot thoroughly entertained.

Buyers looking to add the Shakedown package to their new Dodge Challenger only have to shell out $995. That’s a small price to pay for the unique style, flashy look and additional entertainment the package provides. The stripes in the Shakedown package come in any of the colors in which the Challenger Shaker is available.

As if that wasn’t exciting enough, Dodge has announced it has revived the popular colors B5 Blue and Plum Crazy. Buyers can get their 2018 Chargers and Challengers in those colors regardless of the trim level they choose.

 

The new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup will come with many new features than its predecessor, however, it will cost a little more. With the latest upgrades it’s a better vehicle all-around. The highly-anticipated new truck from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. It features higher trim levels in its quad cab and Limited Crew Cab, but these upgrades will come with a little higher price tag. Built at the company’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, the 2019 models are in the process of being shipped to a dealership near you right now, FCA says.

Available in a diverse range of offerings, FCA’s all-new 2019 Ram 1500 features Tradesman Quad Cab 4×2’s that are well-equipped and come with a MSRP of $31,695, all the way up to the Limited Crew Cab 4×4, which is loaded with new technology and features a V-8 engine with a 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen as standard equipment and sells for $57,390. The Tradesman, Rebel and Big Horn all come with a 3.6-liter, V-6 Pentastar eTorque mild hybrid powertrain as part of their standard equipment. There’s also the option to get a 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission for an additional $1,195. The eTorque-equipped HEMI costs $1,995 more. However, you can see what Ram fits your budget if you check one out at Chapman Las Vegas Dodge. You are sure to find a Dodge Ram that meets your needs.

The pricing on the Laramie, Laramie Longhorn as well as the Limited is based on them being equipped with the standard 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI engine. The eTorque-equipped HEMI costs an additional $800, a news release from the company explains. The head of FCA’s Ram brand, Mike Manley, explained that the company worked to decide on the right balance when it came to setting the price of the 2019 Ram. The brand’s flagship truck, the 1500, faces a market laden with new truck offerings this model year. They include new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups.

In a news release Mike Manley explained that in launching the company’s all-new 2019 Ram 1500, they knew that it was essential to ensure it offered class-leading technology and features. However, they also had to make sure they offered this excellent new truck at a price that was competitive with the other pickups being released into the marketplace. The pickup truck segment is very important to the overall sales totals for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and making sure to combine excellent feature and innovative technologies at the right price is vital to keeping sales strong and its customers happy.

Ram is a standalone truck brand produced by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. It is separate from FCA’s Dodge line of automobiles. The Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 have established themselves as stars in the pickup segment in the North American market. Ram trucks have developed a reputation for being tough enough to handle the dirtiest and most strenuous jobs, yet stylish, comfortable and technologically advanced enough for everyday use. The ‘go anywhere, do anything’ versatility of Ram trucks have led them to develop a constantly growing passionate following among people of all ages, sexes, educational and socioeconomic levels.
