If I was a marketing orientated person, I would venture to say the Sublime Green and Ferocious Fuschia would be released as part of the 2012 and 2011 Spring Specials.

Also, wasn't there mention of an upgrade satellite receiver?

RS, thanks for the information. I hope you can release more in the near future. After waiting 2 years for a promotion so I could afford to get exactly what I want these last few months of waiting for production details while Dodge plays coy are killing me.

Yep, the SE needs a manual tranny. The other kids on the block have it. I guess the convertible is also still non-existant from Dodge.

RS, your the man!

Thumbs up

Thanks RS, great info. One question, I used the dodge website to build a SE/G in Bright White with the rallye package, choose leather seats and noticed there was no charge for the leather seats. Is this the new "base" package for the interior, or just a problem with the dodge build your own website? Guess my name, Chally2010, should be 2011

White SRT for 2011, thats what I have been waiting for. Now if they announce Sublime my order is going to be hard to figure out.

08 CBR 600rr wish i still had the srt-4 too.

... Driver's seat quick release for rear seat access ...

Glad to see they're finally doing something about the driver's side rear access issue.

Hope they also address the sagging headliners with some front and back edge trim.

I expect robust first quarter sales primarily due to the offering of white for SRT's, many have been waiting for this for sometime.
The tri-color Inferno Red sounds interesting too.

Now the big question:
Will SRTs finally get a light in the glove box, Doe !

Any HP/Torque numbers would be purely speculative at this point in time.
