Forget concrete, Dodge wants you riding around on blacktop – as in its new Blacktop styling packages for 2013 Avenger, Challenger R/T, and Charger R/T models.

Blacktop models offer enhanced styling packages to this year’s model lineups including unique dark wheels, grille, headlights, and rear spoiler and some interior appointments as well.

The Blacktop package was first offered on the Dodge Charger and because of its success the automaker is carrying those extra touches to other models in the Dodge family.

“The Blacktop package on the Dodge Charger has proven to be a resounding success by combining a customized one-of-a-kind appearance with great value – a trademark of the Dodge Brand,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “Now we’re expanding this successful formula to the Avenger, Challenger and Charger R/T, making great style and performance even more accessible, starting at just $595.”
