At the 2012 Detroit auto show, Mopar will unveil new performance accessory packages for the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 200.
The 2012 Dodge Charger Redline gets a high-performance Hemi crate engine that produces 590 horsepower — 220 more hp than the Charger R/T. The engine is also composed of aluminum instead of cast iron, taking some 100 pounds off the vehicle’s weight compared with the regular crate V-8 that Mopar offers. A high-performance suspension, strut tower brace, throatier exhaust system and beefier brakes accompany the high-powered engine.
Exterior upgrades on the Charger Redline include a ground effects kit with a carbon-fiber chin spoiler, carbon-fiber door scoops and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Unique 20-inch black-painted wheels also come with the package.
The Chrysler 200 Super S accessory package will be an available option on the Chrysler 200 S trim later in 2012. The package adds a new ground effects kit and blackened, gray or "hyper black" chromed 18-inch wheels. There’s also a cold-air intake and cat-back exhaust system, as well as a sportier suspension.
The suspension is lowered, and the Chrysler badge is placed in the middle of the grille instead of on the hood like on normal 200s. Check out the photos below and then tell us in our comments below if you think these packages are more or less attractive than the standard Charger or 200.
