Right out of the box the Challenger and the Charger are pretty tough looking machines.
But the Stars & Stripes Editions up the ante in a serious way. They don’t come with any extra power, but since even V6 models come with 300 ponies under the hood, none of Ma Mopar’s modern muscle cars suffers from a lack of motivation. On that note, here’s what AutoNation Drive’s Derek Shiekhi had to say about his time with the Charger R/T Scat Pack:
In Auto mode, the Scat Pack had a relaxed, casual feel to it. I could still sense all of its 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, but the Hemi wasn’t as quick to lash out. Engaging Sport mode brought its rage to the surface. It was savage and immediate. I’ve tested more powerful cars before, but the Scat Pack was the only one that felt as if its engine wanted to rocket away from the rest of the car when I put my right foot down hard.
Yup, there really isn’t anything like pure, unadulterated American muscle — and nobody does it better than the mad scientists at Dodge!
Along with the satin stripe on the hood, the exterior of Stars & Strips editions will also feature a flag on the fender, bronze brake calipers, 20-inch wheels, and blacked-out badging. Inside the cabin, the black and bronze theme continues, and there’s also some embroidered stars on the seats.
Overall, we think the package looks pretty sick, and expect they’ll be a popular option for both military personnel and civilians who want to make their muscle cars even more menacing. We can’t wait to check them out in person, so stayed tuned for live shots from the New York Auto Show next week!
The Stars & Stripes package is available for GT, R/T and Scat Pack models, and comes at a $1,995 premium. If you like what you see head to your local AutoNation Dodge dealer to place your order.
