I agree, but the length of the new Challenger concept is over 196 inches long which is too long for a new pony car.

I'll just post the pics and info here in this thread:

Re: New Dodge Challenger

im just worried that the bottom line to the challenger will be too expensive and it will be passed off for something a little cheaper. if dodge doesnt hit the note in price i dont think the buyers will catch on. i am a huge dodge fan. my first car was a plymouth. and ive always liked the edgy look of dodge.

Re: New Dodge Challenger

Yes, price is KEY. So what do all of you think would be a reasonable price for it? (w/ a Hemi, and without)

Re: New Dodge Challenger

Love this car. Would have preferred something different on the back end but the front is nice as is the rest. The back just doesn't look right. Like they didn't know what to do with it.

I would have preferred "Challenger" across the back instead of "Dodge" but I guess that is an easy fix!

Re: New Dodge Challenger

I think its the best retro design out there. My Dad worked for dodge until just recently, rumor was they were to start around 32k for price, but thats rumore. Someone posted something about dodge finally competeing with Mustang. Well, that isn't too hard to do. I know its not a car, but dodge put out the jeep srt, its numbers outperformed the mustang in 1/4 mile test track. I thought that was pretty good for a 4x4 suv.

Re: New Dodge Challenger

jesus... is that even competing? i mean that puts the base mustang 12 grand lower. (at like 19,.... somthin). but i will say this the major power some of these trucks have.... its almost like its the trucks turn for a muscle era.

Re: New Dodge Challenger

i dont understand why suv's are even getting that expensive. i mean if you buy 2 of them thats like buying a decent 2 story house. my parents bought thier house for 79 grand.

Re: New Dodge Challenger

I got a 73 challenger (below), and I was as happy as a retard in a candy store when I heard about this new one.
