2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Redeye Widebody
#1
I am a Canadian, who lives not far from the Brampton Plant where these wonderful beasts are bolted together... and I am often intrigued/amused/annoyed by the differences between US orders and CANADIAN orders. While I can logic some of the differences as market driven realities – some choices leave me baffled.

I thought it would be interesting to start a thread showcasing some of these differences. Here is one to get discussions going:

US VERSION: 2019 Redeye Window Sticker. Label reads: “2019 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT HELLCAT REDEYE WIDEBODY”.

CANADIAN VERSION: 2019 Redeye Window Sticker. Label reads: “2019 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT HELLCAT PLUS

WHY? Are Canadians viewed as puritans by the Michigan brass? Are they afraid that we will wave our bibles in disgust at the satanic-implied word "Redeye"?

Yes I also own a "Hellcat Plus" but mine is regular body. So both our labels read the same even though you have a widebody.

I think they have always had subtle differences between U.S. and "export" versions - this probably allows them to differentiate between those markets and taylor the car to each market...

Another DIFFERENCE that always baffled me...

US: A MANUAL trans Hellcat is 2,995 ($US) less expensive than an AUTOMATIC.

CANADA: A MANUAL trans Hellcat is 1,000 ($CDN) more expensive than an AUTOMATIC.

(per dodge.com and dodge.ca - Sept 2019)
