Well I figured I'd add something useful to the Mix...In hopes this becomes a STICKY thread
This is a DUMMIES guide to vehicle color options for the 2006-2008 Dodge Chargers

The Charger has various colors avaialble only for that year and or trim package.
Certain models have certain traits, engines, colors that make them Unique.


ENJOY AND PLEASE RATE THIS THREAD
FORMAT:
COLOR NAME - FACTS AND COMMENTS ABOUT THE SELECTED COLOR. SOME PORTION OF THE INFO ARE OPINIONS AGREE BY MAJORITY AND NOT FACT.
From left 2006 - - 2007 - - - -2008------2009







All 06 Color choices -Some vehicles may not be of that exact year . But are of that exact color

TorRed - In 06 this color was only available in Daytona package with 2000 made. Color matched interior panels All the Daytona Items. Refered to as "The Daytona Bastard child" or "Red-Headed Stepchild" pun intended.. as this color was not in any sales brochure and introduced Late 06 and is the only color of the 06 Daytonas to date to be released in NON Daytona fashion later.






Top Banana - Only produced in 06 for the Daytona. 4000 made in. Retro Name All the Daytona goodies.

All 07 Color choices Some vehicles may not be of that exact year . But are of that exact color

TorRed - Released in 07 as a permenant standard color option. Debunking the exclusivness of the TorRed Daytona. Making Daytona CLones easy. ANd probably dropping the value of the TorRed Daytona.


SubLime Green - Retro color, 1500 made , all the standard Daytona Extras. Ya either Loved it or Hate it.

Stone White Clearcoat - - Intorduced in 07, Standard color available in all models.

Only Non Superbee SRT8 to be Numbered, by order of purchased not assembled.

2009 Color Choices - Pics represented may not be of that exact year but are of that exact color



2009 Color options have been spoken and chatted to be the Least eye cathing color choices since the arrival of the Charger. With only 1 new color to make the lineup and no Sign of green colored charger anywhere.(See 2007 Sublime for the only Green pallete available)



TorRed - the 4th year available and the 3rd year in everyavailable model. Introduced in late 2006 as one of the Daytona Editions and continued in 2007 with availabilty in any model Charger. See 2006-2008 TorRed for more info about this color.

Props Boiwithlooks



Stone White CLearcoat - Available this year as a Daytona(late availablilty) and as a standard selectable color. Daytona Clones will now be possible. The entry of the 2009 Daytona in StoneWhite throw off the Countown of the Daytona's. In 2006 there were 3, 2007 there were 2, in 2008 there was 1 now in 2009 there is 1 so far. Could there be 2 in 2010, and 3 in 2011?




Light Sandstone Metallic - 2nd year availablility introducesd in 2008, Color aimed at a more subtle buyers demographic.



Inferno Red Crystal Pearlcoat - Available again for the 4th straight year. Most likely in every available Model.




Hemi Orange Pearlcoat - The color of the Mopar Hemi comes back again. Said to be released in only SuperBee Fashion. We will see if it makes it onto any other models. So far The CHarger Has seen the HemI orange in only Daytona and Super Bee Fashion.

Props to Cruisin1966




Deep Water Blue Pearlcoat - ANOTHER BLUE!!!! Revived color from the mid to late 90's. Brought back in Nice Fashion And in SRT8 Making this the first New addition to the Non limited SRT8 lineup. Add this brilliant blue to the other sensational blue that has already hit the Charger PLatform.( Other Blue Chargers: 06 midnight Blue, 07 steel blue, Marine Blue, 08 B5 Blue Pearl)




Dark Titanium Metallic Clearcoat - 2nd year available, Color aimed at the more subtle buyers demographic.



Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat - In its 4th year. Brilliant Black is Back and with a Twist a unknown limited edition Brilliant Black Charger said to be released in 2009. Unclear if it will be a Superbee, Daytona, or something New. With all the limited edition vinyl already being Black (exception of a extremely few white decal'd Factory Plum Crazy Purple Daytona's) All vinyl in the classic categories were factory white.Will the vinyl on the Next Gen Charger Be Charcoal Silver? White? Or Black on Black? And DId the Economic recession Kill the hopes of a Late Year Brilliant Black Charger?







Bright Silver Metallic Clearcoat - 4th year running and Really Popular color. Lets see if that continues in 2009

so....... by your math they made 10000 Daytonas the first year... I thought it was 7500 (6500 American, 1000 Canadian)....

Nice idea to show them all off though.... And the one year colors are limited but not a numbered series as they only made them for one year and what is out there is all that is out there... I think less Magnesiums made it out the factory doors than Daytonas.

If that's the sandstone, then what is the light champagne/tan looking color that appeared the same year? I was thinking the champagne one was the sandstone one, but you're saying the sandstone one is the dark brown one, right?

BTW--the top car in post #11 is Silver Steel.

The car that appears in post #2 after the Banana is listed as Silver Steel, but that is too light for my color--it looks more like bright silver sitting in the shade.
