Not a fan of dodge at all, but I really did like the way the new charger looked. Too bad you couldnít buy it manual. Deal Breaker for me.

Cant buy a Ferrari with a manual anymore, so that must be a deal breaker as well. 😜

The 1970 Charger was once my dream car.

Exactly why I donít own one.

That and the lack of car seat space are legit reasons.

Dodge is still selling all the Challengers they can make, which is pretty good for a car which debuted in 2008 and has not been seriously restyled since. ONE refresh in 2015. All they've done is to keep rolling out special models, First the Hellcat and then a bunch of subspecies like the Demon and the various Widebodies, and the Red Eye. They haven't sold fewer than 50,000 any year since 2013. There are almost certainly more New Challengers than Dodge ever sold of the old ones.

I think Stellantis had decided to close Dodge and Chrysler when they took over. They're keeping Ram trucks, however.

Looks like Dodge will be around for at least one more product cycle.

Is it a rebadged Alfa?

There are rumors of other Dodge branded cars coming.

Both kids went to schools where every student was essentially in the top 10% of their high school class. When they started, I told them both that all those kids that were in the lower 90% of their high school classes were no longer their classmates and that every other kid did as well or better than them in high school. Being in the top 10% of the top 10% is not easy!

we still chuckle about this -

my oldest kid graduated high school with 4.2 GPA

his rank : he was tied with 13 other students at #108 (of 631)

lol

I just want a 360. With a stick. The one that was new when I was in college, as all awesome cars are.
