What do you think?


Me:  I wish Dodge would STOP with the facking front grille thing.  I don't want a sedan or coupe to look like your freaking trucks!!  I don't care if it DOES have the same freakin Hemi or not.  All of your vehicles do not have to look alike!!

2 doors 2 many, and I'd have to see it in orange with a flag on the roof flying over a creek.

I'm gonna get flamed for this, but that car is one sexy beast. NO, it doesn't look like the old '60s cars. However, neither should it. It does have some retro design elements and with the Hemi under the hood, it could be a real contender for the Muscle Car moniker.

It'll certainy handle better and stop faster than a '70 Charger could ever dream of. Betting with a few engine mods, it'd hold its own against all but the most radical of its progenitors....

It looks dumb.  What happened to the Charger concept vehicle design they were shipping around to the auto shows a few years ago?  That one looked good.

Four doors?  The front end makes it look like it's rear ended someone in that pic.  They could do a lot better for the charger model.

That older concept looked a little too Corvettish for me.  A little tweaking to it would have made a far better contender than the current evolution.

I don't mind the 4 doors so much, but a Charger should be long and wide and look like it is going 160 MPH standing still.  The current one looks like it is always riding the brakes.

I like big 4 doors, so to me it's not bad.  Has the trademark Dodge grille which I don't like but I understand why they have it.  I love the idea of a big powerful sedan, so I'd consider buying if the price is right.  Ford dropped the ball with the Mercury Marauder which makes the Crown Vic the only comparable ride.

I definitely like it better than the CV.  Wish GM still made a REAL Impala SS though.  Shame there's not more selection in this catagory of vehicle.

Fucking God did they fuck up the '99 concept.  The '99 concept was one sexy beast.  Well I guess I'll stick to Mustangs for new cars.

The concept car looked awesome, I can't believe that they're going to put the "Charger" name on that steamy corn-filled pile. And why the F are they making it a 4 door?! Is Dodge on crack?

LOL. Agreed.

The front and back do not blend well together, blocky and muscular in front, swoopy in rear does not work at all. I happened to like the magnum when it came out, drove the hemi and was impressed, however still uncertain about the cyl. dropout mode over the long haul. The magnum works much better as does the 300 which the charger is based on.

Fugly....  why dont they do the right thing and fire the designers.    This is what happens when you sell an american company to the germans and try to revive a muscle car.   Chrysler is lost.....  they will never again be "american" and the germans just dont understand american classic cars.

I'd buy a new GTO over that thing in an instant.  

4 doors?  I'm sorry but that's blasphemy, and it's ugly to boot.   Damn...  It should be a Magnum Sedan, not a Charger.  If some people like it for what it is I suppose that's fine, it just shouldn't be a Charger.

I had been looking forward to this car, guess I can write that one off now.  I'm back to hoping and praying Chevy doesn't screw up the new Camaro for '07-ish...  

Now the new 2006 Corvette Z06, there's a car that didn't disappoint...  31xx lbs, 500hp...  If only I had a prayer of purchasing one anytime soon.

If they would have stuck with the original charger concept car it would have been a home run. It was DAMN sexy. This fugly thing is an abortion.

That is the first thing that hit my mind-a lame spinoff of the Dodge Magnum design!

Sorry-that looks like a family sedan/hatchback with a identity crisis. What is it...the Charger soccer mom edition?

Dodge REALLY dropped the ball with this one! In fact, the ones who decided the put the word "Charger" on it should be publicly flogged!
