Mopar Booth Tour – SEMA 2014

Posted by: Matt Iasenzaniro onNovember 15th, 2014


Mopar brought one of everything to SEMA 2014, including a funny car! From Ram to Renegade, from ACR to Abarth, there was a Mopar Concepts vehicle for everyone.

The small car segment was well represented with a Dodge Dart, two Fiat 500s and a Chrysler 200S. The Dart sported a matte black hood, with a scoop more prominent than our picture makes it seem, and a revised front fascia to allow plenty of air to the mysterious turbo-charged engine. It’s about time Dodge brought the newest iteration of the SRT-4 here, after the Neon made a splash and the Caliber just sunk, and this concept fits the bill. Whether or not we actually see it is yet to be seen but, with the success Ford is having with the Fiesta and Focus ST, we can’t help but think Dodge will follow suit. The other three cars were more visually focused, only sporting significant paint, body and wheel changes, but the 200S also received a drop from coilovers and was truly stunning. Clean and elegant. I bet they’d sell a lot more if they came out of the factory looking like Mopar’s version.


While all of the smaller cars were Mopar concepts, we were treated to a few production models in the higher performance area. Mopar brought Challenger T/A and Charger concepts, but they were overshadowed by both the Charger and Challenger Hellcat models, which were joined by a new Charger Scat Pack. A Dodge booth wouldn’t be complete without the flagship Viper, and Mopar brought a gorgeous white Viper ACR with black stripe and aggressive front splitter.

Off-roaders were well represented with a couple Wranglers, a gold Ram 2500 Outdoorsman, and two new Jeep Renegade concepts, dubbed the the Riptide and Frostbite. One is designed for surfers and the other for skiers and snowboarders. I’ll let you figure out which is which.

Enough talk, SEMA’s all about the photos and you’ll find them all in the gallery below!
