To pay homage to the racing vehicles of the 1960s and 1970s, Dodge is adding the new Shakedown Package along with some stunning paint colors. You can choose from B5 Blue and Plum Crazy, which debuted originally in 1969 and 1970, respectively, and span several generations of muscle-car collectors and enthusiasts. These eye-catching hues have been signature Dodge muscle car colors ever since their debut. This array of accessories and thrilling paint colors can be found on select Challenger and Charger models – see below for more information or start shopping our current inventory now!

Blending modern styles with old-school muscle, the Shakedown Package adds unique asymmetrical black racing stripes that flow up and over the roof, then around the Shaker hood scoop. It also includes white-face gauges on the instrument cluster and an upgraded Alpine audio system. With the upgraded audio system, the R/T Shaker receives six premium speakers and a 275-watt amplifier, while the R/T Shaker Plus and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker receive nine premium speakers and a 506-watt amplifier so you can sound good cruising around all night long. The Shakedown Package was inspired by the 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger that debuted at the 2016 SEMA show.

“Dodge//SRT has a rich history of using iconic heritage and high-impact colors and unique graphics to make our vehicles look custom, straight from the factory,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat – FCA North America. “Whether a customer remembers B5 and Plum Crazy from when they were new in the ‘60s and ‘70s or they’re a new customer today, these paint colors and unique Shaker stripes stand out in the crowd and speak to our customers’ passion for their cars and their love of the Dodge and SRT brands.”

New for 2018, B5 Blue and Plum Crazy exterior paint colors are now available on all 2018 model-year Chargers and Challenger T/A, T/A Plus and T/A 392 models (all other Challenger models late availability), bringing a sense of nostalgia and powerful bursts of color to highways and dragstrips across the country.
