Design Competition #5 -- Dodge Compact Sedan


Recommended Posts

Welcome to Design Competition #5!


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.

Just trying to think of a reason why the K5 Blazer comp thread was full of worthy entries, and interest from members, and this one sounds like (Plymouth) crickets when I come in.

Prove me wrong with some worthy entries then.

pencil sketches ok? I am not yet privvy to such technological tools.

Or can I just post a picture of a Mitsubishi Lancer GTS with a Dodge grille and wallah

"2012 Dodge Lancer"

Because that's all Dodge really should do.

What is Fiat's compact? No amount of FIAT CURRENCY could make a business case for it?

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
