Αν ζούσες στην Αμερική και ήθελες να αγοράσεις μέσα στο 2015 ένα νέο Dodge Charger ή Challenger στην περιορισμένη έκδοση Plum Crazy και δεν τα κατάφερες, σου έχω καλά νέα. Η αμερικάνικη εταιρία για να κρατήσει ζεστό το ενδιαφέρον του κοινού επεκτείνει μέχρι τέλος Ιανουαρίου την περίοδο που οι αντιπρόσωποι της μπορούν να δεχτούν παραγγελίες για την συγκεκριμένη έκδοση. Ο λόγος είναι η μεγάλη ζήτηση του μοντέλου, με τους πελάτες που θα παραγγείλουν τα Challenger και Charger μέσα στον τρέχοντα μήνα θα μπορούν να τοποθετήσουν νέες λωρίδες στο αμάξωμα.
Η Dodge επανέφερε για περιορισμένο αριθμό αυτοκινήτων το Plum Crazy χρώμα για τα Challenger και Charger το περασμένο καλοκαίρι, με αυτό το περίεργο μοβ/μελιτζανί να είναι ίσως το χρώμα που συνδέθηκε όσο κανένα άλλο με τα muscle cars της Dodge από το 1970. Όμως, για περίπου 10 χρόνια το είχε αποσύρει από το χρωματολόγιο της.
