    Meanwhile the Tahoe sold more than the Expy and Navigator combined and GMs full size pickups outsold Ford for the month.

    I think you're forgetting that they make this gloriously American muscle car called the Hellcat.

    Hellcat is probably 5% of Challenger sales.   Coupes tend not to sell much, full size cars don't sell and cars built on 90s platforms don't sell, and the Challenger is all 3 of those. I can only imagine they just discount the heck out of them.

    Nah, probably Trumpflakes buying them to put new Confederate flags on the top and live in the past 40+ years ago in the South.

    "The Challenger is an icon that it's customers love just the way it is".

    Sounds familiar? Except here, Dodge is moving boatloads, not a few hundred. Oh, and it's a half century newer than you-know-what.

    Part of it is their V6 fleet market but a big part of it is because it still has that look that muscle car fans love plus it is the most comfortable to live in, of the three, due to a larger interior. It's not that hard to figure out really.

    Dodge is selling LX platforms at large incentives and cheaper and it has a loyal base of large boomers that still fit in it. 

    A couple guys at work bought a couple this year and got them cheap. Few are Hell Cats many are V6 or base V8. 

    Camaro needs incentives in this market right now. It is the best but the price is also the highest. 

    This whole class would have died without the older conservatives. The Bernie people either don't have the money or they want to take it in taxes to pay for all the free government entitlements. Also lets not forget the regulations they would put in that would kill the cars in the name of global warming too. 

    Also don't knock the south. They are diversifying. Anyone see the Bernie supporter who stole the truck and did the Dukes of Hazard like jump and walked away once he was arrested. The only mistakes he made is one don't steal the truck after you walk away from work release. Also you need to make sure if you are going to do a jump like that at least get paid for it. 

    I was impressed how well the Toyota held up. It had to be 30 feet in the air. 

    As long as gas is cheap and the economy is going gang buster like we have not seen in 20 years truck and SUV sales will be strong. Cars will return if either parameters change. 

    I see Alfa is now up to 500 Cars sold this year. Sergio said he will sell 150,000 by next year here. I think he may need to take another pay cut.

    This is not totally a joke. This is part of the reason for the rise of the CUV.

    There are a lot of reasons for rise o the CUV,  it is very possible that in 2025 sedans, coupes and convertible are less than 20% market share and CUV is like 60% with trucks the other 20%.

    For the record, I'm not a big person and I will take the Challenger first and foremost.

    You can have mine. I never liked the new one and the low quality just sealed it.

    i would rather take the money and buy an older original one.  They got the styling right on the original.

    I drove an AAR Cuda a while back and it was a blast.

    If I were to buy new today the red with black hood on the SS 1LE at my local dealer would be my choice.

    I brought my Malibu in to get fixed again today.  In the service bay waiting was a new Camaro.  It is such an amazing rig.  I looked in the window though, and there was barely enough room between the front and rear seats to slip a fed ex envelope.  As I drove home in my Malibu hybrid loaner, i came to a stop behind a fairly new Challenger.  It's a real sized vehicle.  It's taller and us older folks who cling to muscle cars like being able to sit up a little bit, and see out of the damn thing.  And it would it nice once in awhile on swingers weekends to be able to at least throw the women in the back seat.

     

    I think this gen of Camaro will become collectible for hard core performance geeks.  But i recommend Chevy / GM already getting dies set for a redesign of the body.....taller, maybe a WB stretch, and a shape that allows you to see out and have people in the back once in awhile.  A little trunk space too.

     

    Chrysler dealers were advertising 300 AWD's for 249 a month with 249 down......talk about making hey with an ancient platform.  That LX platform may outperform the W body if this keeps up.

    I will have to agree to disagree on the quality. The ones that I have been in were quite nice IMO but to each their own. Nothing wrong with an SS though by any stretch of the imagination.

    Wait, Chrysler will pay me $249 a month to drive a 300?  Intriguing deal, but still not worth it.

    Chrysler made a great decision a few years ago when they reskinned the 300 and Charger.  The v6 AWD became the most popular powertrain configuration.  In these wintery parts, its a huge sell for someone who wants a car but in a market deluged with crossovers.  AWD and size on the cheap.  Now the Challenger has AWD too.  A pony car you can use in winter.  That alone should snag some buyers for aging boomers looking for a weekend go to see Jimmy in college trip / toy car kind of car.

    All Chrysler is really doing the last few years is straight out of old GM playbook.  Old tech, outdated stuff, sold with HUGE rebates.

    All wheel drive does help sales, I agree there.  I have long said cars like Malibu, Impala, Fusion, even Camry and Accord should offer all wheel drive.  People are fleeing those sedans because they can get all wheel drive in a crossover.  When that is easy profit to charge $2,500 for awd on a Camry or Malibu.  If the 300/Charger were rear drive only they'd be dead right now, look at how the Avalon, LaCrosse, Impala and Taurus are dying on the vine, I imagine all 4 of those cars are dead by 2025.

    Just read the new BMW M5 will be all wheel drive, so even the car that founded the rear drive sports sedan has succumbed to the consumer desire for all wheel drive.  This is what will make electric cars appealing I think, you can put a motor on al 4 wheels and have all wheel drive.  Consumers will like that, once the batteries deliver the range.

    Quality is based on friends and family with KC models. None are going to be repeat buyers. 

    The in laws new 300 is a really nice car and they paid a Malibu price but they have had more warranty issues than I have had on my last 4 new cars combined.

    Lots of electrical issues and several recalls,

    Even failure of the key fob. 

    Same for the guys at work with these cars , Rams and Jeeps. 

    Even the surveys from multiple sources list most FCA  product at or near the bottom. 

    As for the muscle cars they all will change as all are not selling well and all are only going to get more expensive. 

    They are dying because boomers are getting older and have moved on. The younger people either have little interest or if they do they can not afford them. The auto makers will continue to make these more into world class but affordable GT coupes and look to sell them globally to gain the needed volumes to keep them alive.

    AWD is a very small in the total sales. 

    All sedans are dying in this time of low priced gas.

    We know how GM ended up with old product and high discounts.

    Well let me say from eight years of ownership, my old Magnum was the best car and least problematic car I have ever owned in 28 years of car ownership. Not debating FCAs overall issues but not all LX cars were $h!. Again, this is from eight years in one.
