Buyers can pick the Blacktop appearance package, which is available on both the SXT and R/T models. The package stays true to the color in its name and comes with 20-inch high-gloss black wheels, black trim elements through the exterior and interior of the car, a sport steering wheel, and a sport-tuned suspension. Other packages and their included features are Wheels and Tunes Group and the Premium Group with 20-inch polished aluminum wheels with black pockets and satin finish and the Plus Group with 18-inch wheels for the SXT model and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels with graphite pockets on the R/T model. The Wheels and Tune package is only available as an option on the R/T model. The Plus Group and the Premium Group packages are available as an option for the SXT and R/T models.
