Welcome to Design Competition #5!

Posted Image


Now that Chrysler has been joined by Fiat and released from the grip of its previous owners, or "partners," it has been given a nearly all-new line up of fresh vehicles. Almost every single vehicle on any Chrysler or Dodge showroom floor is new in one way or another. However, there is one vehicle that is missing: a compact sedan.

Dodge tried fooling us into buying a compact crossover-type vehicle when they replaced the Neon with the Caliber in 2006. This car was nothing like the Neon and has gone unchanged for far too long. Seeing as though it is aged and was never able to sell like the Neon, it is time for a replacement that goes back to its roots.

Your mission is to create a new compact sedan for Dodge that has best in class styling. This car must sell to the masses and show that Dodge means business, so don't be afraid to be unique and creative in its design. Other designs in this class very widely, from the very sleek Civic to the edgier Cruze, so show us what Dodge should do to replace the bulky Caliber with something new!

You may base your creation on any compact Fiat vehicle or branch out in a new direction. But each entry must comply with the following:
  • Four doors (though you may add an extra coupe or wagon sketch to accompany your sedan)
  • Compact proportions
  • Dodge family resemblance

The contest will end at 11:59pm EST on March 1st.

Entries can be in chop or sketch form - artist's choice.


There are TWO prizes for this contest.

The first prize, for the winning design picked by the three judges mentioned below, is:
2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Diecast 1/18

But on TOP of that, the user who refers the most number of people from OUTSIDE of C&G to compete in this contest, gets the $25 gift card to Amazon.com. You don't have to compete in the design contest itself to compete in the referral part of the contest. So if you're like me and posses artistic skills somewhere in the negative range, you can still compete to win something. If you do refer someone to C&G, make sure when they submit their entry, they put you in the post as the person who referred them.

So have at it and design a replacement for the aging Caliber!

It should also be mentioned that this contest will have three Administrator judges: Oldsmoboi, CSpec, and Northstar.

The contest is finished before it even started. Behold the Dodge ComFAPt 3.0 with more Aliasing than the leading competitor.

Introducing the 2012 Dodge Panda Cross 4x4. Technically it's a city car but I couldn't resist putting a Dodge face on it.
