The color and trim of the Holy Guacamole Dodge Challenger R/T Mopar concept makes us think that the designers of late ’60s and most of the ’70s were actually onto something. That, at one point, your nona’s or your babcia’s green couch and wood paneled walls were actually tasteful when new. When new. Not being immune to irony, Dodge actually named the hue of this SEMA 2021 Challenger concept “Rotten Avocado”. Holy Guacamole, indeed.
Dodge Challenger Holy Guacamole SEMA 2021 Concept: The Details
Dodge designers took an already retrolicious Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition, and came up with this color scheme that truly throws it back. Even the interior has remembrance of the good old days, before EFI, that include inserts for the door panels and seats with plaid patterns that look like they came right from your grandpa’s button-up shirt. Woodgrain inserts were also added to the dashboard and center console to add that nostalgic look. We may or may not have stayed in a cabin up north that has the same color scheme.
But it’s not just about groovy looks. The Holy Guacamole Dodge Challenger R/T features a widebody kit, along with the Mopar coil-over lowered suspension and 20-inch Forgedline wheels sure accent the car well. A function Mopar Shaker hood is painted gold or in Dodge designer code, “Gold School” – which was only around for the 2020 model year. For a little extra kick of exterior presents, there is a two-tone special 50th-anniversary ghost decal running down each side of the Challenger R/T. For performance, Dodge sticks with the 392 Hemi V8 engine.
As the 2021 SEMA Show inches ever closer to its start date of Nov. 2, Dodge is preparing to bring seven new concept vehicles to be put on display in Las Vegas. The highly anticipated Jeep 4xe plug-in hybrid concept will be on display along with other concepts like the three-row Jeep Wrangler Overlook, Jeep Grand Cherokee L Breckenridge, Kaiser Jeep M725, Ram 1500 Outdoorsman, and RAM 1500 TRX RexRunner.
