    Look at the bright side, there will be lots of used (current style) challengers to go around for many, many years to come. Also remember the rumor where it was said they'll keep building the current one alongside the new one when it comes out.

    So, if they name the current one (if it were to run alongside the new one) like they did for the Rams would the new name of the old Challenger be "Challenger Classic?"

    Enthusiast sites will say "The Challenger has undergone some updates for the 2029 model year and there's a lot to be excited about". "The 2029 Challenger styling is underrated... even in its 14th model year"

    Will there be new colors and new black wheel designs for 2029?

    No, we'll actually have the new design. IN fact is would be so new they'd pull out their even older tooling and using the 2008 car front and rear again to give it a fresh look

    With no mules spotted, new models are a ways off. I suspect nothing until three things occur. Merger, contract, and all Jeep factories finished. Then maybe we might see something.

    new challenger will be american engineered. It will be FWD with the north/south like the old LHS with a turbo straight 6 and AWD.

    Agree. Now for a new Chrysler that would be a different story.

    Once again, I see you are posting misinformation and phrasing it like a fact. Please stop doing that.

    If someone actually thinks the Challenger will be FWD-based, I question that person's sanity.

    That said, if it was “standard AWD,” ... what would be the difference?

    But nobody else is predicting that. Company docs show RWD.

    Poor proportions, the strangely compromised combination of inline 6 and FWD layout, inability to fit a Hellcat which is supposedly continuing to the next generation...

    Oh, and the 8-speed is for RWD cars. So imagine how well-received the 9-speed would be in a muscle car. I also don't know if small-wide could be stretched long enough for a full-size coupe or wide enough for a transverse inline-6.

    Giorgio Global is the clear answer.

    Speaking of 2021, will we see any changes through the lineup for regular chargers and challengers? RT, SP range.

    If they keep it around long enough polished wheels may come back in style. ;)

    I'm not liking this new 2021 design. Might have to stick with a 2020...
