Default Challenger SRT8 - orders open Monday

As hideous looking as the Camaro. Not sure who would ever pay $40K for that thing. I bet the price will break $50K with the dealer mark ups.

I actually like it... Looks like the old school muscle cars, which I love.

All will feature dual “carbon-fiber” hood stripes, harkening back to the original Dodge Challenger.

Too retro looking. No creativity. Fall back design.

Probably explains why I hate the new Mustangs, the 09 Camaro, and now this.

Considering American car'* "success" in recent years, falling back to what works can't hurt. These are retro designs with very intriguing updates. I like them, because it reminds me of an era of cars I like but was never able to live through.

We could always just ask Dodge to update the Intrepid. Obviously that was way better.
