Chrysler Building 35 Dodge, Jeep, Fiat Cars for 2010 SEMA Show

The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show is just around the corner, so we're not too surprised to see Chrysler's Mopar division has been busy preparing a few special vehicles for the trade show. We are, however, a little surprised with the volume of vehicles -- although we've only been shown a handful, the company is bringing roughly 35 cars to the show, including the following examples:

-2011 Dodge RedLine Charger Built largely upon a stock 2011 Charger R/T, the RedLine infuses the new-for-2011 sedan with a little more muscle. Mopar added a blistering hood, along with a unique taillamp treatment, carbon fiber splitter and rear spoiler, and a unique side scoop patterned after the 1970 Charger R/T. Large 22-inch wheels, coupled with a 1-inch suspension drop, gives the RedLine an aggressive stance, while a Mopar-sourced cold-air intake, exhaust system, and headers help the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 breathe. Thus far, the only production-ready piece of this package is the RedLine paint itself, but we'd be happy if the next-generation Charger SRT8 model looked like this. -2011 Dodge Durango Citadel Black & Tan Dodge is using SEMA to unveil its new high-trim Durango model, but the Mopar wasn't content to leave things completely stock. This gussied-up Durango Citadel receives unique black exterior paint, 22-inch polished aluminum wheels, lowering springs, and unique grille inserts. The concept car draws its name primarily from the interior, which sports Nappa leather seating and a two-tone black and tan color scheme. -2011 Fiat 500 GT We've yet to see an American-spec form of the 500 Abarth, but that hasn't stopped Chrysler's designers from dreaming up a performance-tuned 500 of their own. The GT, built upon a European-spec 500, receives Abarth-like fender flares, which surround custom 18-inch Alcoa wheels. Exterior graphics include an unusual black mask between the headlamps, blacked-out hood, and asymmetrical red accents on the wheels. That last cue carries over into the interior, which sports a red leather seat cover and door insert for the driver, but not the passengers. Chrysler hasn't discussed mechanical specifications, but the automaker notes the Fiat is fitted with a new custom exhaust system and a strut tower brace. -2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Street Cherokee and Off-Road Edition Seeing as the Grand Cherokee is designed to mix on-road performance with off-road prowess, it isn't too surprising to see Mopar's designers push each personality to the max with two different vehicles. The Street Cherokee concept receives a lowered suspension, 22-inch aluminum wheels, and a custom front fascia. Conversely, the Grand Cherokee Off-Road Edition is moved skyward, thanks to a suspension lift and 33-inch BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain tires. Other accessories designed for battle off the beaten trail include Mopar-sourced skid plates, rock rails, and tow hooks. Not enough muscle-bound machinery for your taste? Fear not -- Chrysler's also announced it'll use the SEMA venue to launch its new 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8, while simultaneously showcasing the new Viper-powered 2011 Challenger Drag Pak racer.
