New Challenger concept is too big

New 2008 Challenger to be nearly identical to concept:

tell them it is too big (http://www.detroitnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060727/AUTO01/607270374/1148)

The new Dodge Challenger concept is 4.7 inches wider and 10.2 inches longer than the 2006 Ford Mustang.

While only a concept now, the new Challenger is almost one foot longer than the new Chevrolet Camaro concept.

Camaro:

110.5" Wheelbase
186.2" Length

Challenger:

116.0" Wheelbase
197.8" Length

I mean, it needs to be a pony car, not a muscle car.

I agree and I also think the new Challenger is a bit long. However, I'd love to have one.:iceslolan Let's see what comes out in 2008.

In the meantime, I will be busy with the restoration of a 1970 Challenger anyway...:rofl:

It is not too big. It is just fine. If you don't like it, don't buy it. I will buy one when it comes out. Go buy a nasty Chevy or Ford, or even worse a Toyota.

I disagree! I love how it kinda merges old school style with a more modern, sleek feel.

Its like a movie remake - comparing it to the original would be silly because it isn't trying to be a duplicate. This is the new Challenger, and it is different in a good way, if you ask me.

'Nuff said, take another look! http://www.newdodgechallenger.net/

about the same as the chargers. the 1st ones on lots will only be srt's which would be about 36k and up.

Thats not too bad. I don't think that its too too big. It might not be living up to old school Challenger standards, but its the closest thing to it, and its not harmfully large.

Interior thoughts?
