Re: 2015 Dodge Challenger Comes In Eight Trim Levels, None Of Them Supercharged

^ Jose, have you ever seen a Challenger in person?

I was rather shocked when I first did...
(it was kinda like seeing pix of a girl you thought was kinda pretty
and then finding out she's well over 6 feet tall)
...ie the Chally is a darn big car

I love the updated tail. Was expecting a bit more to be done but overall I still think it looks great.

yes I did 2b2, a lot of times , there are a lot of Challenger's here, some SRT8's too (there are some Camaro's and mustang's but not that much)
I even seat in a black SRT-8, I fell in love with that car

This is a typical, yet successful, mid-cycle enhancement. The nose, tail and interior are updated and the driveline is upgraded substantially with the new 8 speed automatic. This car sells pretty well with limited advertising so they didn't need to do a do-over such as what was considered with the Barracuda.

The car's still a hippo in its class, so I imagine it'll continue to be last...oops, third...in comparisons with the Camaro and the Mustang.

I don't know that retro stylings are going to go away, though, because the truth is that the era where cars were styled by people more than wind tunnels created a lot of very memorable vehicles. As much as I was proud of Ford for their part in bringing in the aero era (Audi deserves the most credit, really), I don't foresee the Thunderbird Turbo Coupe ever being more legendary than the first two generations of T-Birds.

I personally think that The first-gen Taurus/Sable were even more advanced (and on this side of the pond, impactful) than any Audi, and it was a necessary first step in increasing the fuel efficiency of the automobile. However, as mechanical and thermodynamic efficiency began to increase as well ultra-aero was no longer was as necessary as it initially was. And yeah, that gives the stylists a lot more leeway in making cars that look good while being efficient. I like Jack Telnak's work from the '80s, but I'm glad that styling still isn't with us today. And the Challenger, for all it's age and tubbiness, still looks good.
