to kick off brand s centennial dodge introduces 100th anniversary edition charger and

On November 14, 1914, after 11 years of supplying Henry Ford with components and rolling chassis, Horace and John Dodge started selling cars with the Dodge Brothers brand.

This weekend, we’ll be running a historical piece to commemorate the start of Dodge’s centennial celebration, which Chrysler chose to kick off by introducing a couple of special edition Dodges at the Los Angeles auto show. The 100th Anniversary Edition Dodge Charger and Challenger feature red pearl paint, 20 inch wheels, and special anniversary badging. Buyers will receive a special key fob and a number of books about the Dodge brand’s history. Inside, die-cast badges that say “Dodge Est. 1914” are on the seat backs.

    Great car. The issue for Dodge though is the refresh is coming out soon - will be a the next NYC auto show I guess. Supposedly the very nice 8 speed ZF auto is coming to the Challenger and its going to lose a few inches (maybe).. OTOH this car might be better - if you like the standard tran and want a backseat. Almost none of the muscle cars have a backseat except for these two.. It'd be nice if they offer a charger with a manual. People think its demand that prevents this but its actually regulations. If the regulations would be different they would offer a manual on a order from the factory basis in the Charger.

    Just spring specials, last of the current 2011 intro'd car. The LA show always lags in comparison to the other shows that follow it. Big ones for Chrysler (that I know of) will be Detroit and New York (the latter showing the 2015 fully refreshed Charger / Challenger that'll make everyone forget about the ones in this article.

      Sadly, you're right, and not just about Chrysler. November/December is just too close to the Detroit show and just lends itself to a year-end wrap up, at least with Detroit offerings. It's ideal for the Japanese and Korean automakers, but really should be held a couple months earlier, away from Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  • Mike Beranek I don't care about the vehicles. But I'd be on board for inspecting the drivers.
  • Art Vandelay Coming to a rental lot near you. And when it does know there is a good chance EBFlex and Tassos have puffed each other's peters in it!
  • Art Vandelay I doubt there is even room for EBFlex and Tassos to puff each other's peters in that POS
  • Art Vandelay The lack of side windows is a boon for EBFlex and Tassos as nobody can see them puffing each other's peters back there!
  • Art Vandelay They all have sunroofs which is good for EBFlex and can stand and hang out the roof while the other puffs his peter
