It would appear that the new management at Chrysler is taking the bull by the horns in putting the third of the Big Three American automakers into a position to become number one. Not only are they building some of the hottest muscle we’ve seen in years to come out of Chrysler, but it’s also some of the most high tech and style.
We recently spotted at Autoblog that Chrysler will reveal at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that they’re integrating the Beats™ audio system by Dr. Dre™ into the new 2012 Charger. The Beats system itself was revealed just a year ago at the New York International Auto Show and is currently standard equipment on the 2012 Chrysler 300S.
The Beats sound system features a 12-channel amplifier and 10 speakers throughout the car including three 3.5-inch speakers located in the instrument panel, two 3.5-inch speakers located in the rear doors, two 6 x 9-inch front-door woofers, and two 6 x 9-inch speakers and a center-mounted 8-inch speaker located in the rear-shelf. An 8.4-inch Uconnect screen in the dash controls it all.
It will be standard equipment on the 2012 Dodge Charger R/T Max and included with the new Blacktop Package or Rallye Appearance Group on Dodge Charger SXT models. The Blacktop Package is similar to the blacked-out Night Runner editions of the Dodge Ram pickups that debuted in 2006, wherein the Charger will feature tinted windows, 20-inch blackened five-spoke wheels and a smoked tail light array – which we personally love.
