    NAIAS: Dodge Challenger Concept

    The new Challenger keeps a lot of the good: the signature horizontal “thrust” line that creases the fender and door and kicks up just ahead of the rear wheel; the wide look at front and rear; and the long, low hood accented by twin diagonal scoops fitted with functional butterfly valve intakes. Inside, deep gauge holes, a leather-wrapped steering wheel (with ribbed steering column, of course) and a pistol-grip shift handle evoke Challengers of old. Like Challengers past, this concept packs more than its share of muscle under the hood in the form of an SRT-tuned 6.1-liter, 425-hp, 420-lb-ft Hemi V8, linked to a six-speed manual transmission. Chrysler estimates the fully functional concept should rocket 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, clip the quarter-mile in 13 seconds and attain a top speed of 174 mph

    Eh, this design is retro overload. I'm really not a fan, although I know there will be plenty who are.

    It looks much better than the scary Imperial. I am guessing that those are the radio and a/c controls all together. I wonder though, why Chrysler copied the base cluster as an example instead of the higher end Challenger cluster. The base model Challengers had one large gauge for the speedometer and a bunch of smaller gauges for the fuel, temperature, etc, the models with the gauge cluster had 4 equal sized gauge holes.

    Though, from what I have seen of the Camaro photos that were released, the Challenger is starting to look a little tame.

    Where are the pics?
    Sorry China, we'll buy your disposable electronics and lead coated toys, but when we Americans want a cheap car with horrible quality, we get a Chrysler.

    I agree...

    I think it looks a lot like the 1st Generation Camaro... say what you will about it not look'n like it... but it does... JUST LOOK @ IT!!!

    Nice car though... Camaro, please please us!!!

    In the sea of new automotive faces,
    there's nothing like the appreciation and beauty of an older model. Let's represent!

    interesting interior, i kinda like it. the exterior however, i think it is one of the ugliest cars ive seen in awhile. if they had just made it a 2 door version of the charger, it would be fine
