    Too bad the word on the street is now a no for 2021. I'm fed up tbh. The large car styling is stale to me and the Giulia is too small. I've started to shop elsewhere now.

    Maybe if you buy something from another brand, the new Charger will be released around the time you're ready to trade again.

    Today's journalism as piece of junk.

    Stelvio is as wide as Charger. Stelvio also has wider rear track than most Charger while front track width is similar to Charger.

    But as I said in the past. Brampton due to its carriers will have an issue to build a cars which are wider than current ones.

    9BB4B813-F3FB-492A-B161-D935D20E26A3.jpeg A user on Instagram just posted a pic of a Widebody Challenger... in Redline Red. I asked how he got that and was it wrapped and he said the dealer got it for him... any idea how that’s possible? Seth Wadley Chrysler Jeep Dodge is the dealership.

    It’s a 2018 and I’m pretty sure it was a color option for that model year. I know quite a few Demons were painted that color. It’s definitely the best red, I hope Dodge brings it back at some point.

    From what I understood it was cut from the 2016 or 2017 MY. I remember seeing it on a list that Bob shared and then it wound up not being available, bc apparently it wasn’t a seller. Am I wrong on that? I’m sure it wasn’t available last year. If def wasn’t in the build and price.

    I know it was available on the Demons. If it wasn’t available on other Challengers it’s hard to say how a 2018 widebody Hellcat came to be painted in that color.

    ”FCA didn’t know that the Giorgio architecture was too narrow for Challenger and Charger...”?!? Seriously...?

    Don’t they have a measuring tape in that building...?!?

    :) I think it was more the idea that in order to get the benefit of scale to have these cars get downsized. My fear was always that the next cars would become too much “world cars”. While I am sure the Giorgio architecture underpins amazing cars I am glad they had a change of heart. I do think they “learned” a lot from 2010 to 2016 when it comes to the American market. It wasn’t cheap nor fast but hindsight is always 20/20. I think the biggest problem is that wolf has been cried so often that a number of people have given up. Well, if Chevy has faith in a new gen Corvette I do hope Dodge has the same in the Charger and Challenger...

    And as far as the Corvette goes, I’m so glad they stuck with a V8, which gives me hope for the future Chargers and Challengers. Chevy could’ve gone with an ultra high performance V6 like Ferrari is going to do, but they stuck with a V8.

    Fiat has been wanting to ”shrink” Challenger since Day 1!

    Have anyone the decency of checking at least the dimensions before writing or talking about how narrow is a vehicle? Look at width, track, rim width ... no?

    For example 1653 mm.

    BS!

    Stelvio is as wide as Charger. Almost identical width while Stelvio even has a wider track at the back.

    But yes, keep ignoring my comments although I have explained issues with Brampton numerous times.
    They can't build wider cars than today.

    Bravo Sierra. It’s always been stated that the interior space would remain the same while the exterior would be pulled in a hair. You’re making it seem like Fiat(not even FCA:rolleyes:) wants to turn it into a compact.

    Yup. This nonsense that Challenger would be replaced in 2014 with an Alfa Romeo-sized Barracuda started the day Marchionne took over. Everyone forgot already? 2015 SRT Barracuda: 25 Cars Worth Waiting For 2014–2017 – Future Cars – Car and Driver

    Extract:

    PLATFORM: Significantly smaller and lighter than the current Chrysler 300–based Challenger, the Barracuda will sport a strut front suspension and multilink rear. The 'Cuda's new platform is engineered for global markets and will also underpin Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and Maserati coupes, sedans, and spiders [see "Smoked-Fish Spread," October 2012].

    POWERTRAIN: Four-, six-, and eight-cylinder engines ranging from 2.0 liters to 6.2 liters, most with direct injection. At least one Hemi V-8 will continue, and a supercharged Hemi is a distinct possibility. The transmission choices should include conventional and dual-clutch automatics, plus a six- or seven-speed stick.

    It all reads like fiction fantasy today. Ironically, in 2018 Dodge sold 60,000 Challengers in North America, based on the ancient L-car; Alfa Romeo sold 120,000 of all models globally.

    No wonder Alfa’s been given to Tim for some CPR.

    Redline is similar and was around previous. The cars had Redline and Torred. It’s seems that they cut the color after the Giulia came out and replaced it with octane red. I prefer redline. The user says the dealer had the color. I’m wondering it’s a wrap. He says that’s not the case but idk.
