Chrysler’s SRT (Street and Racing Technology) brand is expanding its 2014 vehicle lineup by offering new Satin Vapor Editions of its Chrysler 300 SRT, Dodge Challenger SRT and Dodge Charger SRT models.
“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, Chrysler president and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports. “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.”
Keeping exclusivity in mind, every Satin Vapor Edition package is tailored to fit the individual design and personality of each featured SRT model, Gilles said.
On the exterior, the new Satin Vapor Edition of the 300 SRT offers 20-inch by-9-inch forged-aluminum split five-spoke wheels with a black satin Vapor chrome finish, Satin Black mirrors, satin black spoiler, grey 6.4-liter HEMI badge, satin black roof and red Brembo calipers.
Under the hood of every 300 SRT model is the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 delivering 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, Gilles said.
On the highway, up to 23 mpg is achieved by use of an active valve exhaust system that allows the standard Fuel Saver Technology (four-cylinder mode) to engage over a wide rpm range.
The active exhaust system also allows for straight-through mid and rear mufflers for a throaty exhaust note under engine load.
The new Challenger SRT Satin Vapor Edition features 20-inch by-9-inch forged-aluminum split fivespoke wheels with a black satin Vapor chrome finish, satin black mirrors, grey 392 HEMI badge, red Brembo calipers and satin black fuel door, Gilles said. The Challenger SRT is powered by the proven 392-cubicinch
HEMI V8 that delivers 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Charger SRT Satin Vapor Edition offers 20-inch-by-9-inch forged aluminum split five-spoke wheels with a black satin Vapor chrome finish, satin black Super Bee tail graphic, satin black roof and hood, satin black mirrors and spoiler, grey 392 HEMI badge and red Brembo calipers.
The Charger SRT Satin Vapor Edition is powered by the same 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that delivers 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, Gilles said.
The 300 SRT, Challenger SRT and Charger SRT Satin Vapor Edition models will be available during the second quarter of this year, Gilles said.
