As shown in the main photo above, the 2016 Dodge Challenger has an all-new Blacktop Appearance Group and it’s available from the SXT up to the R/T Plus models. The new stripe has a “strobe” designed dual stripe that runs from the Shaker Hood, over the top and back to the rear spoiler. The wheels are special to this model and they are 20 inch five spoke aluminum wheels which are painted gloss black with polished spokes. It doesn’t hurt that even the gas cap lid has a satin black finish.
The interior of the 2016 Dodge Challenger Blacktop Package comes with black Nappa or black perforated Nappa leather seats. The instrument gauges and center console have black bezels instead of bright aluminum and the instrument panel is finished in a dark brushed aluminum finish. Even the tic toc tach features this same black finish on the gauges. Last but not least, even the floor mats are unique to the Blacktop Package and they contain a special Tungsten embroidered Dodge logo.
Also shown in the photo above, the re-introduced heritage color of Plum Crazy is added to the available paint colors for 2016.
