Mustang Maniac Yeah, the SRT-8 looks amazing especially compared to the lame base editions of the car. The biggest problem is the price. This will definitely stretch into the 40-45 thousand price range, considering that the 300C SRT-8 costs about 40 grand and that the base Charger will cost more than the base my estimates. Also, for 15 thousand dollars less you could just buy a Mustang GT that isn't all that much slower, has a much cooler design, 2 doors, and is...well...A FORD!!!

P.S - With the new Shelby Cobra GT500 costing only around 40 grand (Autoweek estimates) and will most likely be running in the low 12-second range (a second faster than what the SRT-8 will probably run), there is no doubt that consumers should get a Mustang.

Ya man, the new SRT8 looks mean!!! I really like what Dodge is doing. Ofcourse they should have made it with a 5 or 6 speed, but the auto is alright. Anyone know the price range on this thing?

The charger is OK, except that it should have been a 2 door or at least have had a 2 door option.

Have you seen the new SRT8?

Atleast dodge has the right idea, and is coming out with rear wheel drive cars. GM actually just cancled the Zeta project, which would have aloud them to move forward with rear wheel drive cars. Also, how can GM Adopt a Australian car, slap some badges on it, and call it the GTO!!! I mean come on!!! Where's the heritage??????? Nice try GM

GeeTee I grew up in the Muscle car era and personally that thing does not deserve the Charger nameplate. Mercedes Blah Blah somthing yes, but not Charger.

Mustang Maniac Also though, why didn't they try to compete with the Mustang? The pricing of some of their newer cars makes it seem very likely that they could've offered the Charger for around the Mustang's price and have like 45 or whatever horsepower more. Of course, horsepower isnt't everything (look at the GTO's 350), but the extra 45 horsepower and a somewhat light package would equal a pretty cool sports/muscle car.

quick5pnt0 I just think that at the very least the Charger should have been a two door, because as far as i know all of the original Chargers were two door cars. By the looks of those renderings the new Charger looks alot like the 300c in my opinion. I just don't understand why they would make two cars that look so similar.

autOReject it looks ok but since it's a sedan it kinda ruins the whole idea of the car. Dodge shouldve put more thought into the car and really tried to bring back the famous muscle car days.

Mustang Maniac WOW!!! I love the unique old person feel of everything but the front grill and somewhat aggressive headlight styling. Oh, and i guess that hump near the rear door looks kind of cool. Even with those, the overall shape of the car is pretty granny like. It looks like something, but I just can't point out what. Either way, its 600 times better than a SRT-4.
