not in 2011 from what i've read. i would think it would probably come back at some point though. that is the reason i jumped on mine cause i knew it wouldnt last.

Hemi-orange was supposed to be a limited edition color for the 2008 SRTs. Because of the demand, it was continued. It is now officially retired and has been replaced by other high impact colors.

Since I have a HO Classic, I say no, don't bring the color back. But then again, I guess that is just plain selfish. :)

It is a great looking color. I went in looking at TorRed or Deep Water Blue (or maybe even white), but my eye kept getting pulled to the HO car. I convinced myself I didn't want a HO because there were so many of them already out there on the road. But after seeing it up close in classic trim, I convinced myself I was wrong and I did need it...

It's retired and needs to stay that way. I don't want the Challenger to be like the Charger, and keep the same old colors all the way thru it's model run. IMO, a third of the car's color palette needs to be changed every year.

Personally, I would not buy a 2011 Challenger right now BECAUSE of the color selection. Outside of the normal black, silver, and white, the only really cool color is the new red. However, it is a $995 option. I was very disappointed when I saw the colors they were offering. Toxic Orange is no Hemi Orange, and Green with Envy is a color I would never buy. I miss Hemi Orange, Plum Crazy, Detonator Yellow, and B5 Blue. Furious Fuscia can stay discontinued... :)

Never say never,
Special Edition color for 08,
only to return yet again as a Special Edition color for 10,

HO will be offered again for no other reason than it sells cars.

I'm glad they switched up the colors. The only problem is they replaced some great colors with rather drab colors. I'm not liking the TO at all. Also, while I like to see some throw back colors, they really need to come up with new high impact colors.

I would rather see a new color than the HO. Like,,,, put a "ink black" in the line up, dark forest green, gunmetal gray, darker red, billiard #2 ball blue and maybe a brighter tangerine orange (not as pumpkin as HO).

Thats nice keeping the good color limited and all but, the new colors suck. I was going to work this morning and drove past a SE in the new red and immediately past that, were two minivans and a nissan sentra in what looked like exactly the same color.

i prefer they do not repeat colors

people buy HO, PCP, DY, FF because its unqiue...by making them every year it loses the uniqueness..

i think they will make PCP and HO again....if i were in charge i wouldnt, but ill bet they will

HO is a great color for these cars without a doubt. It will be interesting to see if they resurrect any of these already released high impact colors. I suppose you would have to figure out if "limited run" pertains to that specific model year or for all model years.:scratchhead:
On another note, they have Mango Tango available for the '11 jeeps.....wonder if that will bleed over to the Challengers later this year.:browsmiley:

RT's were HO for 09 and 10 only. SRT's were HO in 08,09 and 10. That is the reason I moved up my purchase. I was originally going to wait till May or June to buy my Challenger but when I did an inventory of dealers in my area very few HO RT's were left so I acted quickly. I really didn't like any of the 11 colors.

When I found out that HO wasn't avail for 11, back in Aug 10, I figured it was now or never. I found a new one in Spring Field MO, just the way I wanted, HO, W/Track Pack, and no other options (dealer installed stripes). My wife liked mine so much, we just bought her a leftover 2010 Torred, she wanted white stripes.
