The 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT are available in new metallic orange paint treatment called Go Mango.
According to Edmunds, Dodge dealers are officially taking orders for the new Go Mango paint treatment at no additional cost. While the Go Mango paint treatment option is free, applying black dual racing stripes to your Charger or Challenger will cost $995, the AutomobileMag.com claims.

It was during the 11th annual Spring Festival in California that Dodge revealed the new paint treatment for the first time. This limited edition exterior hue is a combination of red and orange tones. The release of this new color is in response to the demand for performance cars such as the Dodge Charger and Challenger to have high-impact colors. Tim Kuniskis, the head of passenger car brands for Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, and SRT at FCA North America, confirmed the news.
“Powerful performance cars like our Dodge Charger and Challenger demand high-impact colors. Dodge muscle cars have a long history of unique paint colors with iconic names, and we’ll continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiast customers what they want.”
The metallic orange made its first appearance on the iconic 1970 Dodge Challenger. For a limited time, the color was also revived on the 2006 Charger R/T Daytona. The Go Mango orange, however, is not the exact same shade featured on the 1970 Dodge Challenger. The shade has been “modernized,” according to CNET.
The Dodge brand produces mainstream performance automobiles. Thanks to the brand’s consolidation with SRT, Dodge is able to offer a full lineup of high performance vehicles. The lineup of this brand include compact cars, muscle cars, crossovers, full-size SUVS, and minivans. Dodge automobiles offer exclusive technology and impressive horsepower. Some of the features fans of this brand have come to appreciate include signature racetrack tail lamps, LED headlamps, dual exhaust, and so much more.
