SEMA: Mopar-customized Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat lineup
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has detailed nearly a dozen Mopar-customized Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat and Ram vehicles unveiled at SEMA.
A Dodge Challenger GT all-wheel-drive concept appears to be Mopar’s highlight build for the event, representing a “one-of-a-kind, year-round muscle car” with improved traction. A concept wide-body kit adds flared fenders, accommodating 20-inch staggered wheels, while its 5.7-liter HEMI engine benefits from a Scat Pack 3 kit for 75 extra horsepower.
The same engine upgrades were used for the Charger Deep Stage 3, distinguished by a Silver Bullet exterior color with Matte Black covering the top of the vehicle. A front chin splitter, rear splitter and unique rear valence have been created for the show car, which sits on concept 22-inch dark bronze wheels.
Paying homage to the Dodge Omni GLH (Goes Like Hell), the Dart GLH showcases a long list of production components. The package focuses on exterior enhancements, with a Pitch Black body color and matching black-anodized 18-inch wheels.
Designers took a few more liberties with the Chrysler 300 Super S, featuring a concept front fascia with 300 ‘Easter eggs’ hidden on the matte black grille. The sedan has been lowered and placed on 22-inch concept wheels, while the interior has been outfitted with light grey leather, blue contrast stitching, a unique T-handle shifter and a flat-bottom steering wheel.
A pair of modified Fiat 500X crossovers will be on display, highlighting the model’s first year at SEMA. The 500X Chicane is presented as a street-tuner vehicle, outfitted with a concept front fascia, custom body panels and oversized 20-inch black wheels. The 500X Mobe takes a different tack, assembled with Mopar parts that can help “haul toys tot he beach.”
The company is bringing its Ram Rebel X, essentially a Ram 1500 Rebel equipped with production parts. The Ram display will also include a ProMaster City DiveMaster van for scuba divers, along with a DragMaster van that could serve as a tow vehicle for a drag racing machine.
All of the customized vehicles will be spread out across FCA’s 15,345-square-foot display at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
