The best retro of the three. But they all have their own charm these modern muscle cars

interior is such a let down for how good it looks on the outside and an impressive engine.

In terms of design? While I'm not personally a fan of the insides, I can say without even seeing it in person that this interior blows the first gen out of the water. Much more soft touch surfaces

That's because it is done on a slightly shortened version of the larger Dodge Charger's platform......itself taken from that of the last-generation Mercedes E-Class.

Both the NEW Charger and Challenger look GREAT!

Interiors could be better but compared to the last ones, its a major improvement.

For the 2015 Challenger (I requested it several times), they seem to have brought back the classic 1970/71 Lime Green (Tor-Lime) paint color. That was always my second-favorite to the classic purple (Plum Crazy)...which they also brought back last year.

Still waiting for a new, modern Road Runner, though....probably with the Dodge or Chrysler brand-name since Plymouth is gone. The original ones, with the cartoon bird-graphics and Beep-Beep horn to match, was, IMO, easily the most personality-laden of all the 60s/70s muscle cars. But, even aside from the fact that I couldn't afford a new one back then (I was too young and didn't make enough), their poor assembly quality typical of Chryler products of that age, hapazard construction, lack of refinement, and squeak/rattle nature did not impress. Fortunately, that is not the case with the latest generation of Chrysler products.

Bring back a new Road Runner, guys, and my checkbook will be ready...though I'm still (easily) satisfied enough with my Verano to also keep it.

Default 2015 Dodge Challenger Video Preview


Quote:
The Dodge Challenger is one of our favorite muscle cars, and even though it hasn’t seen any major changes over the past few years, it’s still an unqualified blast to drive—at least in V-8 trim. This year, it’s giving us some new reasons to burn rubber all over again.

This is the first truly major update to the Challenger since it was new for 2008. The changes are obvious from the outside—at least if you’re a Dodge buff. The grille’s been slimmed down, and has LED halo-ring running lights, and there’s a fully functional power bulge on the hood. The overall shape remains the same, thank goodness—with a long nose, flat hood and deck lid. Of all today’s muscle cars, it’s still the most faithful to its past.

That’s great, but modern cars need modern cockpits. The Challenger finally has one. All the hard black plastic is gone—it’s a soft-touch dash now, with a big TFT screen of gauges and a touchscreen for navigation and audio. Aluminum accents are sprinkled around the cabin, and Dodge is bringing back a houndstooth interior trim, just like the ones they offered in the 1970s.

The Challenger’s base engine is still a V-6 teamed with an eight speed-automatic—but the big news this year is that eight-speed is now available on the V-8 cars as well, and it comes with paddle shifters and a sport mode. The V-8s come in two output levels, 375 horsepower and 485 horsepower. With the big kahuna, the Challenger will pound its way to 60 mph in about four and a half seconds. You’ll definitely want the new launch-control function for that.

Suspension tunings now include a Super Track Back and a Scat Pack with Brembo brakes and 20-inch wheels. Electric power steering has three modes: normal, comfort, and sport.

The Challenger’s still the biggest of the American muscle cars, and it’s stepped up its features to serve and protect all five passengers. A rearview camera’s now available, and so are adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and forward-collision warning systems. Like some other Chryslers, the Challenger can be specked out to your taste from 14 different interiors, nine wheels, and a range of retro paint colors from Sublime Green to B5 Blue.

There’s no pricing on the new Challenger yet, but we’ll be driving one soon to fill in all the details.
