Dodge will be present at the show in a big way, with a selection of highly-customized rides focusing on their new Challenger and Ram models. In a recent press release, the automaker provided details on what show-goers can expect to see at their stand.
The Challenger is making a huge amount of noise this year, even as the months grow colder and winter approaches. Keeping things hot is the one-off Challenger Blacktop model, which is modified by Mopar Underground with custom-made spoilers, a stripe-kit, a Mopar coil-over suspension and a strut tower brace for track-ready handling.
This special Challenger rolls on 22-inch wheels and also includes a cat-back exhaust system, cold air intake and various interior upgrades.
Also on display is a Challenger called "Samantha",a Targa Newfoundland racer built from a out of a modified drag-race machine. Samantha gets Viper-green paint and power from a 540-horsepower, 392 cubic-inch HEMI V8 crate engine backed by race-ready handling and brakes.
Next up, Dodge's Ram TRXtreme builds on the off-roadability of the 2009 Ram TRX. With 4.5 inches of additional lift, 20-inch wheels and BFG 37 by 12.5 sized off-road tires, TRXtrme is the ultimate expression of the Dodge Ram's go-anywhere capability. Wheel flares, step-tubes and a custom paint job complete the package.
A Ram R/T model will also be showcased. Starting life as a 2009 Ram Sport HEMI, the R/T gets a 4.10 gear and high-stall torque converter for impressive acceleration. A cold-air intake and Mopar dual exhaust help ensure proper breathing and sound effects. The exterior is painted classic B5 blue with a Mopar dual-snorkel aluminum hood and carbon fiber accent stripes.
Mopar's air suspension kit slams the Ram R/T to the road, while a chin spoiler and 22-inch Alcoa wheels are bolted on for a street-smart and sporty look.
