The US automaker has decided to play the nostalgia card on this one as it has decided to rehash a classic high-visual impact paint by reintroducing the Go Mango shade, first offered on the 1970 Challenger.
The hue will be available to buyers of the 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat models, with the Go Mango being the newest in a line of heritage-inspired exterior paints and eager fans can already head out to order it. The retro-inspired new (or maybe old, we’re unsure what to call it) hues has been officially reinstated during the past weekend at the 11thannual Spring Festival in Irvine, California where the Go Mango made a splash entry. By the way, Dodge is looking out into its past more and more often these days apparently as other appreciated Challenger and Charger colors have been reinstated: Plum Crazy (purple), Top Banana (yellow), B5 Blue, and Sublime (green). The Go Mango will also be offered on the Dart and has been first seen in its updated form on the special limited production series 2006 Charger R/T Daytona models.
Dodge calls the modernized version of the Go Mango paint a combination between orange and red that delivers a “high-impact color that showcases the legendary Dodge performance attitude.” We’re expecting even more flashy shades to make a comeback in the near future after Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America, commented they will “continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiast customers what they want.”
