    I hear that Chrysler is discontinuing or stopping manufacturing of the color b5 who. So in other words FCA in a little over a years time has discontinued three very good and excellent selling colors. Sublime, phantom black and b5 blue. What are your thoughts?????

    Sublime and B5 were introduced as limited production colors from the start. Phantom Black is another story. Sublime and B5 are retro colors and were intended to help sell cars by attracting individuals that remember and loved those colors. Both are great colors, and I'm sure that FCA will reintroduce them again when the timing is right.

    I certainly hope you're right JT I don't own any of the three colors but I enjoy seeing these cars and talking to people that own these colors.

    Dodge has always changed colors at a pretty fast rate compared to the other US car companies. A few shades this way and a few shades that way.

    I really liked my 2010 deep water blue Challenger but that color came and went...

    I love my phantom black but don't see why it was discontinued.

    I wanted Phantom black originally because high octane red wasn't available. How many things have happened regarding everything surrounding the hellcat makes sense. Crazy wait times for cars, allocation issues, dealer gouging, FCA mistakes, and stop producing the 3 best selling colors.
    Only add here in ramping up production on GO Mango

    Since Subline and Phantom Black were the most popular, they were top of the list for the axe, I guess. I can only assume since I won't ever know what they are thinking.

    They have to cut something to introduce a new color to production.

    B5 and sublime have recently come and gone before...2007 Charger Daytona was sublime, 2008 SuperBee and 2009 challenger used B5....so I would expect both will surface again..

    This is in no way surprising or "news"

    Chrysler has done this with the new Charger and Challenger since they debuted in '06 and '08, offered special colors.
