Why did they get rid of Redline Red? That was my favorite red color...
Because they love torturing us, LOL, my beloved Billet Silver is now also gone. They actually deleted Redline Red early in 2018 so not many built in that color last year.

What is a GT RWD? Isn't that just an SXT Plus??

The Triple Nickle might look classy. I would not have minded Titanium back or the bright silver either. But B5 and Hemi Orange are still my favorites. I noticed the GT AWD has STP. For someone who has a GT now, does that mean the suspension is the lowered STP that comes with other trims?

Hey RS, is the SRT adaptive suspension going to be an option on the regular bodied Scat Packs? I don't like the widebody very much but I want the adaptive suspension.

This is why you can't believe everything you read even if it's from FCA. :D

I'm looking at the order guide and it does show the adaptive suspension as a standalone option on the the standard body Scat Pack so good news, it is a $995 option and the only requirement is that you also order the Dynamics Package, and it's the same $2,200 that it was last year.

So, Adaptive is standard on Widebody but optional on standard Scat Pack.

I'm a little confused...why have a GT RWD and an SXT AWD, in addition to the existing SXT and GT? Why not just have SXT or GT like before? Seems like the only difference now would be the badge

I can confirm the Adaptive Damping Suspension is a $995 option for the narrow body Scat Pack -- sweeeeet!

I tried to order my Scat Pack today (w/ the Shaker pkg) but the "MOPAR Interior Appearance Group" was greyed out (not selectable). This appears to be a bug in order system. I showed the dealer the 2019 Feature Availability (pdf) to prove this should be an option, but they did not have an answer. Has anyone else experienced this? This was a show stopper for me, until the kink is worked out.
UPDATE: I reviewed the RT Order Guide (thanks RS!) and I believe I found the conflict. PLUS PACKAGE (M/H AJV; N/A W/ACX; N/A W/AEW). In short, can't add the Mopar Interior Appearance Group (ACX) in addition to the Plus Package (AAY). Based on the notes from page1, the Plus Package includes (most/all?) stuff found in the other package (i.e. bright pedals & premium floor mats).

I also noticed the "Bumble Bee" stripe is not an option this year, which was included in the 2018 Scat Pack Appearance Group. I guess after-market stripes will have to suffice.
UPDATE: Per RT Order Guide (thanks again RS!), SCAT PACK STRIPE M91 may be the graphics I'm looking for?

Here's what my order form looked like:

Did they by any chance also trickle down the 5 spoke wheels to the dynamics package or is it still the slingshots?

Nope, its still the Slingshots.

You can even order them on Hellcat again even though the 5 spokes still standard there.

I believe the default is the same low-gloss black variety as MY18. I did not explore any rim options, but I'm curious as well. I wish they would update the Dodge "build & price" website w/ 2019 options so we can "see" the new options.
