I'm hearing all SRT's, nothing else for the first batch. I hope this is not so....
I heard the other way around. If it is only SRTs at launch, it'll be another long wait and see.
I heard 6.1s and V6s for the first run, but the 6.1 isn't the SRT. That was a few months ago, though, and it's possible that things have changed (again).
I heard all 6.1L, so assumed SRT. That would make the 6.1L the RT, and possibly 6.? the SRT to follow. Sorry for my quick jump
on the word SRT.....
Is there chance that challenger will get phoenix V8 later in future instead of hemi?
Just asking. I've read somewhere that there be only one more generation of Hemi engines so i'm wondering what then.
Then Phoenix-based V8s, or so we've heard from a source, but I haven't heard anything about timing -- and I wouldn't be surprised to see them branded as "all-new Hemis".
But isn't phoenix V8 supposed to be DOHC (or sohc) and not CIB (cam in block)?
Now that pic, on the other hand, is HOTTT!
GJ, not trying to be a doom and gloomer, and your right of course, I was just worried. :unsure:
just saw a dodge commercial with the challenger in it! only for a few seconds though. it was after the race, they showed it drag racing against an original challenger. sweet!
One from the rear. Lots of speculation here. I only put the backup lights above the Dodge because there are holes there on a bra in a spy pic. I don't like it there, and hope it wont be, but as I am trying to handicap, here it is:
OK some body needs to find it and post a link, I'm at work so I'm limited. I did notice that Dodge updated its Challenger web page.
Have you thought about "whiting out" the entire Dodge section in the taillight?
I just saw it a commercial covering the Dodge line up, at the end the new Challenger lines up against a 70 Plum Crazy. The new car leaves the 1970 standing still. :lol:
Nice spot Lexus Lady.
Here it is
Excellent idea, makes more sense and looks better. And as a reward, here it is in black:
Awesome! Wonder how much they had to speed the footage up to make it look like the concept Challenger is really that fast...
...or maybe that's not the concept Challenger...
Its the concept with full tail light and cross bar.
This will read interesting.
This might help clear up the rumours about model runs and their drivelines. Received internally. Deep pockets only need apply
