Dodge Challenger


Yes, it is the production model.

As close as it can be to the concept.....

This car has zero appeal to me, but I have to give credit to Chrysler for delivering a concept design to the market. Kudos.

When will Ford understand?

I just woke up. It's 1970 again!

Looks good... unfortunately it is completely impractical and will be a failure in the market. This is the wrong car at the wrong time.

Yikes, that is one big butt.

I honestly do like this design with the retro-kickback to the 70's... I'm just wondering tho, is it too little too late to the market? I think everyone is about done with the retro cars by now. And really, how many people will flock to a 2-door (and most likely) gas hog? I think it will do well, maybe for it's first year and then sink for the duration of it's design cycle.

I so much agree with louis. Only a few will by this car at a government rating of 14 MPG. If you had this kind of money to spend why pick a DODGE? I give it two model years.

Big difference, if you put both pics together you can really see it

Louis,

How is this impractical? Certainly not any more impractical than a G37 coupe, Mustang or S5?

Versus what? A $50k ToyoaLexus. Today $40k is the new $30k, and this is not all that expensive. Go to a few car auctions and then you'll see how popular these cars are. Classic Dodges are getting crazy money and people are really excited about the new one. For people who need everyday transportation and can't justify a $150k for a restored classic, it makes a lot of sense for Dodge to bring this back.

You couldn't be more wrong. This car is hot. From the moment they showed it, people begged for it, and they'll turn out for it. Not at the rate of 100,000 a year, but not every car has to hit Accord sales levels to be a success. Dodge has built a strong brand around cars and trucks that appeal to a specific demographic - one that includes me. Don't rag it just because it isn't your cup of tea. America is all about choices... you can have your Smart car, I can have my Challenger, and we can agree to disagree on what constitutes good transportation.

Congratulations. you have just described the exact demographic for any high-end car. Male and middle-aged. Don't be a hater.

I can't help but think that the Challenger would be a GREAT car for Chrysler to 'introduce' the public to the BlueTec DIESEL!! That's right - DIESEL. Oh sure - make the R/T and SRT8 HEMI versions - but why not try something unique. Besides - LOTS of people buy cars only for how they LOOK - and are not all that interested in how fast they are. Craig!! :o)
