AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — The Dodge Mopar '11 Charger — the first special-edition Mopar version of the Charger — was teased on Tuesday, ahead of an appearance later this month at the 2011 New York Auto Show.

It is the second special-edition Mopar vehicle released by Dodge and is a celebration of the longstanding relationship between the automaker and its dedicated aftermarket parts supplier. A Dodge Mopar '10 Challenger debuted last July priced at $38,000 for the automatic transmission model and $39,000 for a manual transmission model with pistol-grip shifter.

More details about the Mopar '11 Charger, which is modified with Mopar parts, will be revealed next week. Expect an on-sale date in late summer. Pricing has not been announced yet.

The sketch of the Mopar '11 Charger shows what appears to be a Brilliant Black paint job accented by a Mopar Blue off-center stripe — very similar to the Mopar '10 Challenger that was unveiled last July. The Mopar '11 Charger is expected to be offered with such goodies as a limited-edition sketch of the vehicle.

"After the success of our Mopar '10 Challenger, we moved on to the iconic Dodge Charger and added even more performance," said Pietro Gorlier, president and CEO of Mopar in a statement. "As a new company, we will continue to leverage the heritage of the Mopar brand at every turn."
