Awesome Dodge Challenger Cruise Pics

Recommended Posts

*listens to media's comments*

What's that? Too retro you say? I could care less.. it's still awsome.

The only only thing I'd really like to see change is the rear end to look a little less "toyish"

Someone posted this at CZ28, and as I said there, it looks pretty gross. Big, fat, and like a pig. The Camaro looks so small and sleek in comparison.

Agreed. Talk about ungainly proportions. Ugh.

I don't like its design too much, it would look even worse in the same picture as a Mustang GT or 5th Gen Camaro.

But.. it's a stick?

I love how you guys bitch and moan that the Charger isn't retro enough and has too many doors. So when Dodge comes out with what you want, looking retro and all, you call it fat and ungainly. Yeah ok. Makes perfect sense. Some people have pretty scewed up logic.

All the LX cars are fat and ungainly

I know you didn't name or quote specific people but for clarification's sake, I've never complained about the Charger's design or number of doors.

But the Challenger, in that picture at least, does look kind of pudgy. I remember it looking longer, thinner and lower for some reason.

The Charger is pretty big and not true to its heritage, but I can live with it. I like the car. The Challenger, however, looks like an anime of its original version, except it has a better suspension and nice interior.

The concept is the big, bubbly Pokemon version of the original Challenger.

I've never complained about anything "not being retro enough".

In fact, I can't wait for this trend to pass. If DCX was so hell-bent on completely rehashing a design that past it's freshness date 3 decades ago, they could've at least left the awkward stance and ridiculous proportions in 1970 where they belong. :wink:

If Dodge had started with a sleek, modern coupe and then add retro cues like GM did with the Camaro I don't think many people would bitch and moan. However, as-is, it just doesn't work at all.

I don't like how the door handles camoflage into the door like they do. Keep the body color,yes, but make them more visible.

Aside from that, I think it looks great.

Looks about the same to me:

But I don't have any pictures of it at a cruise night.

Why so many DCX fans on a GM fan site? Why not to stay with other mopar guys on Chrysler sites?

That's like asking why there's Toyota guys on the site. We all like cars. Besides, I like GM, just not as much as Dodge :P

If I had the money..I would take a Challenger and a Camaro...cuz they are both sexy beasts. Thing is, the Challenger has a better shot at making it to production unchanged, since we know DCX has a track record of beinging concepts to life almost unchanged..GM not so much.

You should of known they dont like the Challenger i mean why would they? cause its a dodge....even if it is very appealing the letters d-o-d-g-e automatically mean that anyone on hear cant give props.....Dodge at least has the balls to make these kinda cars....not to mention build its cool concepts..rather then let the old farts at top management sit there and talk about how buidling certain concepts would be cool. (GM)

I still remember the real Chanllengers. Those that were left in the late 70's were all beaters, at least in the North East. Everyone wanted a 'Stang, Bird, Charger, or Camaro. If you had less than a grand to spend, you were stuck with rusted out Chanllenger that usually crabbed down the road sideways. I think Dusters were even put together better.

I can't imagine that there are enough Boomers out there with fond memories that will support sales of the new one.

Not really, the camaro looks HUGE!! :stupid: And to the other comment about this looking bad next to the mustang... I don't think so. The mustang is boring from the side. It's completely flat and no curves...

It looks fine...just as mean as the Camaro. Build it.

If this car was badged as a Plymouth 'Cuda, I'd take it over both a Camaro and Mustang.
