    As noted in another thread that you attempted to debate this same topic, Chrysler already offers a 2 door large car and cost to develop the vehicle you desire is very difficult to justify.

    Unfortunately, Magnum will not sell enough to justify and adding more vehicles to the existing line would strain production of the current cars that sell very well.

    There is a Charger coupe available now, it just wears different sheet metal.

    I'm not arguing circles about should a Charger coupe be built but if it can happen it have to be sport/luxury big coupe like the 60-early 70's versions but mostly based on the Charger sedan.

    Magnum and Rampage not only could compliment each other here but now you have new market opportunities (sold worldwide) for them since Australia is soon to have no affordable, rwd wagon and car-based pick-up . I'll say even brand the Rampage "Ram" in N/A and "Dodge" in international markets.

    Again, they already have this vehicle... It's called a Challenger and it can be optioned from base to premium.

    Magnum was cancelled and replaced by a higher sales volume vehicle named Challenger.

    As explained before, the cost to develop is not justifiable and could lead to production capacity issues.

    Now let's get back to the topic on hand... The next generation minivan.

    I would like the next generation minivan if it had two doors, and a Charger inspired character line down the side. ****duck's to avoid the shrapnel from that comment.****

    Challenger?, Dodge made a new Challenger?, since when?........

    Instead of trying to corner people with your "can't do" arguing read what I said of "opinion", i guess the webslang "IMO" don't work here.
    From what was known one Chrysler exec. killed the Magnum and the Challenger was originally a 2 MY, SRT8 only car. Glad the Challenger sold like it did though.

    As for the other gloomy-doom you bring up FCA could have green lit a mid-engine, V10 Dart, or in other words you don't know what a multibillion dollar car company is able to do unless you in the boardroom.

    Now that I can do......

    I just want to toss in - yes, this is what Burke Brown said, and he also said the plan was always to have Charger, 300, and Magnum at once.

    Several people tried to explain exactly why it could not be done in the other thread but you continually cast them off. Just because you say "it could be done" does not mean it can actually be done.

    Sounds like a good plan to me. If you want to continue the off topic discussion than take it to PM.

    I think the engineers who lurk here would beg to differ with your dreaming.

    Do we know what drivetrains this thing has? 3.2 PUG with the 9 speed? I thought there was a PHEV version coming at some point. At launch?

    "Dreaming"?, well I do know cars get designed by somebodys dream. I'd love for FCA to take my idea and cash it in (and pay me) from the response here I didn't know my dream have that much influence on a billion dollar company.

    As for engineers, what type?, sanitation engineers for the trashing for any ideas that come up here?.

    Move on guy..

    The engineers are tasked with attempting to turn someone's dream into a reality. Often, they have to take on the role of "Captain Buzzkill" when they have to tell the dreamer that their idea is not possible within the parameters of the program or production capabilities.

    There is your credibility going down the drain right there. You know nothing about the mass production automotive industry.

    Again, multiple people have tried to explain the process to you... an you continue to cast them aside.

    Please move on and stick to the thread topic.
