Dodge brings back fun naming of colors in Chicago

The 2011 Chicago Motor Show, is, as you’d expect, mostly a USDM festival. Therefore, what better place would there be for Dodge to give you a new color for the Challenger.

The actual importance of this new bit of color is not in its existence, shade, hue and so on, but in the naming of it. That’s because Dodge decided to call it “Green with Envy”.

Imagine that, calling your car “Green with Envy”, sounds pretty good when referring to other cars, but not to yours.

On the plus side, I have to say that this new color looks pretty good on the Dodge Challenger. Actually it looks better than that.
