    The Doge Challenger Thread. Much power. Very purple. Wow.

    Link here

    Interestingly, the SRT has not been unveiled yet, and the 392 Hemi (6.4L) is now available on the "regular" Challenger. This is, of course, to make space for the 6.2L supercharged "Hellcat" Hemi V8, rumored to be the most powerful engine ever offered in an American production car - certainly in a muscle car. Rumors have it at close to 700 hp.

    I'm on the fence about the styling tweaks. The biggest change is the interior, which is all new.

    Totally dig the SubLime!

    You're probably thinking of the Charger. Here's the Challenger's old interior - as seen in mine:

    The new interior looks nicer but I wish they'd have gone with more of a retro look, considering how retro the exterior is.

    While I was at a Jeep/Chrysler/Dodge dealer recently, I was struck by how cheap the automatic shifter surround looked in the Challenger.

    Ummm, yeah, how is the outside different?



    ...Oh wait, there it is, they added a body crease!..... Maybe?..... What a disappointment.

    I don't see much difference either...

    But, I liked the way the previous generation looked, so I'm ok with it.

    Just saw the new Dodge Charger, and blech.



    Went from looking mean, to looking like a bigger Dodge Avenger.

    to the new Challenger (although if I ever own one, it'll be the 1st gen).

    to the new Charger. Bleh! Front end looks too much like the Neon and/or Dodge Journey. I'm not saying I'd never own one but it's a real kick in the nuts compared to the current beast, looks-wise.

    I like the design of the Challenger, except it looks like a 1.33:1 version of a cool car. Idk. The charger will never look good until they out that faux vent in a less awkward spot. Is too far aft and doesn't fit the lines of the car. Looks like it was slapped on by some pep boys reject.
