      We walked by a new Challenger in nearly the same color:



      Her reaction: "Meh. Looks like a toy. Too fat."



      Its ass makes its ass look big.
      thats a contradiction... like saying a 4C looks like a Toy... but its too fat.

      Except old white dudes aren't the primary buyers for them. Most I see are driven by guys under 35.

      I think the best thing about the Challenger is that it rustles jimmies, especially for males that drive imported cars and sneer at anything with a slower 'ring time than a Civic Type R.

      I've never understood this, what's the background on these, and why are they like backwards or whatever half the time?

      An updated design for the Challenger wouldn't hurt. I'm anxious to hear more about a possible Hellcat edition for the Chrysler 300...

      AU and The Middle East wouldn't mind a Hellcat 300 with widebody and 305's on all corners.

      This is some of the dumbest hyperbole in this thread.

      Yes, it is a big heavy car. No, it does not drive like a fscking SUV.

      Nor is it a sharpened tool in the vein of the other two competitors. Calm your tits, Clarence. Hyperbole is fine, unless you're an avid reader of Consumer Reports.


      And around here, the Challenger is the realm of the old, white dude. UNLESS it's a 5+ year old, beat on 6 Cylinder. Then, it's a ghetto machine.

      .89 on the skidpad with Eagle RS-A tires (480 TW IIRC) and a relatively soft suspension is impressive to me, but hey we all have opinions.

      I've been running Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires TW 220 (currently on my fourth set) so grip is even better.

      I'm just amazed at the emotional polarity this car seems to create...yeah it's big & heavy, but it's comfortable, sounds good, has plenty of power and some people need to get their eyes checked.

      I only polled old white dudes on their opinion. You should also head to the nearest small town car show, you'll see double digits of stock ones with the hood propped up and all the plastic meticulously shined. These guys are only driving to the diner on a Sunday after church which explains the skew in your market research.

      Yes, and there are Smaller "Exotic" sports cars that are even heavier. Aston Martins DB11 weighs about 4700lbs, that's with lightweight aluminium, Carbon fiber, and Aluminum V12. it was only .44 seconds quicker during a race with a Hellcat on the Grand Tour Show. Now imagine what a Widebody Hellcat wearing 305's on each corner would do?

      agreed.

      the height/width ratio of the original is what makes it look really interesting in my eyes. the new one looks too slab sided and tall relative to its width...
