It’s an exciting time to be a Dodge fan. They just became the first domestic marque ever to rank No. 1 in the highly regarded annual ranking of initial quality by J.D. Power, tying for the top spot. Fiat Chrysler made an impressive seven spot leap from last year’s ranking, showing the rise in quality for the iconic brand. If you don’t know what the J.D. Power Initial Quality study is, it’s a study that analyzes vehicle performance during the first three months of ownership.
This is one of the first big achievements for Fiat Chrysler CEO, Mike Manley, who was appointed in 2018. Fiat Chrysler began its rise over the previous decade under Sergio Marchionne, who was succeeded by Mike Manley due to his unfortunate death in July 2018. Under Marchionne Fiat Chrysler had become as profitable as General Motors and Ford, the other two in the “Big Three” of automakers in Detroit.
“These results reflect the relentless, whatever-it-takes attitude of our team,” Mark Champine, head of quality for Fiat Chrysler in North America, said in a press release. “Our complete focus is the customer and these outcomes reinforce that we are on-target. The team is going to be inspired and motivated and will continue to push forward.” It’s clear that the team at Fiat Chrysler has reached a new level of productivity and a new level of quality within their ranks.
Fiat Chrysler’s impressive rise in J.D. Power’s ranking will greatly improve the company’s reputation, and help in the U.S. pickup-truck and utility-vehicle markets, which are extremely competitive. Despite the competitiveness, Dodge trucks and Dodge’s other vehicles have made a stunning rise in popularity. It’s safe to say the Fiat Chrysler will be fighting for the top spot in the J.D. Power ranking for years to come.
A few months ago Dodge came out with a special-edition Challenger coupe celebrating the 50th birthday of the iconic muscle car. This model features special badges, gold wheels, and a luxurious interior, but only a limited amount were produced. That number is only 1,960 cars. If you wanted one of these it’s likely that you won’t be able to get your hands on it. Luckily for you Dodge is offering a 2020 Challenger 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition. This model has most of the same upgrades as the limited special edition, but doesn’t have any production caps, meaning Dodge will build as many as the demand requires.
The Commemorative Edition will be available in three different trim levels, those being the R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and the R/T Scat Pack Widebody. There is an element of flair that is added to the Commemorative Edition. You’ll find a hand-painted black hood, black-wrapped roof and decklid, and headlamps with LED-illuminated “50” logos. Unique badges are also included on the grille and the spoiler, which are given the name “Gold School” for their gold finish. Black lettering reading “Fuel” is fitted on the fuel-filler door, and the taillamps receive black “Dodge” badges. To wrap up the Commemorative Edition’s look the Challenger is fitted with 23 inch gold wheels.
There are a multitude of unique and great looking colors for the Commemorative Edition. Dodge is introducing a new Smoke Show paint color which you can apply on the upcoming Challenger and Charger, and can also be applied to the Commemorative Edition. The other colors you can get are Granite, Indigo Blue, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel, and White Knuckle. Besides Smoke Show, Dodge is offering four other new color options on the regular Challenger and Charger. These include Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, Frostbite, and the limited-edition Gold Rush.
