Mopar Shares More Details on SEMA Show Vehicles

We took a look at the concepts last week that Mopar is bringing to the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Even more information has been coming out of what to expect from the auto part maker when the event goes live.

Mopar is celebrating their 75th anniversary and want to send the message that this is still only the beginning. The show does seem to be, for the company, to be proving something. Whether or not that is their intention, they are definitely bringing their A-game.

The most exciting car that will be debuting is the Viper SRT. Outfitted in a bright yellow exterior, the Mopar Viper SRT also comes equipped with a carbon-fiver cross beam which makes it lighter by 50 percent than the factory version. To complete the package, there’s also the “Track Pack” wheels that are in hyperblack and LED driving lights.

Also getting some primetime at the show will be their Dodge Charger Juiced. Named after the orange color it is sporting, the Charger will come equipped with plenty of Mopar parts to ensure top quality. The engine is a Viper V-10 which allows for 650 horsepower and comes with a Mopar intake and exhaust.

Next on the roster is the Chrysler 300 Luxury. Mopar has covered the car with a True Blue Pearl Coat along with a platinum mesh grille. Driver comfort is ensured by having Katzkin leather on the seats and even the shift handle. There’s even a bright pedal kit along with Chrysler-logo door sills to really make the driver feel like they are in the lap of luxury.

Finishing off the list is the Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper. Sadly, it’s not Star Wars themed, but that doesn’t stop it from seeming space-aged in its technology. With a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine, portal axles on the front and back that give the Wrangler an extra 5 inches of lift, and 42-inch Super Swamper Bogger tires, it could definitely compete in a pod-race.

The SEMA show is building up to be an impressive display of just what Mopar is capable of. Perfect victory dance for a company in the 75th year of their life.

Chrysler Might be Investing in Plant for New Pentastar Engines

A news story on is about a rumor going around that Chrysler is looking to add a huge investment into one of its plants with the purpose of building a new Pentastar engine. Chrysler Group LLC is allegedly going to put forth $198 million to make this happen at their Mack Avenue Engine I plant in Detroit. An added benefit of this additional funding for the plant would lead to the creation of 250 new jobs.

The company said in a statement, “Chrysler Group will be working with the city of Detroit and the state of Michigan regarding potential economic development incentives to assist us in making the business case for the investment.”

The Mack Avenue Engine I plant currently makes the 4.7-liter V8 engines in the Ram 1500. The plant was converted to produce the Dodge Viper in 1992 but unfortunately, it was moved to the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in 1995, and that includes the new Viper SRT. The plant currently employs 144 hourly workers.

As soon as Chrysler makes an official comment on the speculations, we’ll be sure to let you know. Until then, check out the available Mopar E-Store online at Bayside’s website. Also like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for constant updates on Mopar deals and news.
