Production Dodge Challenger



And it looks as close to the concept as can be.
Pretty amazing.

Let’s hope GM does the same for the Camaro…

  1. Whoopie! A few “gotta have it” guys will buy this overweight and overpriced POS. Then, like the latest Thunderbird, it’ll be discounted heavily.

    Smart buyers will wait to buy this bit of nostalgia on the cheap after it’s had a chance to languish on dealer lots once the excitement ebbs.

    When the Challenger first appeared in late 1969 for the 1970 year, it was Chrysler’s answer to the Mustang 5 years too late, and not much of a car then nor will it be now–especially for the price.

    Would be better for Cerberus to fix their high-volume cars like the Sebring and Avenger and not waste time and money on this vestige of the past that few people are likely to buy.

  2. This car will end the “retro” luvathon that the U.S. domestics currently have going on. I predict that this car will get old within its first full year of sales. It simply is not attractive.

  3. That’s not the production version. A news exerpt recently posted said that both the Camaro and Challenger will have to have B-pillars for structural rigidity and that it would cost to much to make it like the concept (w.o. the b-pillars). This picture shows the Challenger without B-pillars

  4. I like the Challenger better than the Nissan’s GTR boy racer eyesore. Even the GTRs video game version looks like crap.

  5. This car looks better than a photo can show. Saw one at Dover raceway and they have a winner! High beltline with contemporary agressive stance. Camaro has some competion and the Mustang may get burried.

    Last time I checked, those appear to be b-pillars in these photos. Notice how they’re black, and in plain view.
