    It will use a edgier design. From what I hear the F-22 Raptor is its design draw.

    I'm not worried. I've got no reason to worry. FCA has churned out some beautiful designs the last few years.

    Unless "Edgier" means more edges, like the Camaro. It's been a design train wreck since it's reintroduction. The Michael Bay designs are not holding up well, IMO.

    This, Sir, is sacrilege, lol.

    The PT had Soooooooo much potential, tho... The Caliber did as well... They left so much on the table with these designs, and were ahead of the game of the mini-SUV surge that is happening now.

    Given the problems with 6TH Generation Camaro (along with it sales) moving away from Retro Design all together instead if an light "evolution" which seems to be GM's tact with Chevrolet for some reason.

    I don't want to derail the thread, but this is the first news I've hears about the new challenger design. It saddens me to hear about the move away from retro, but semi shocking to hear it being edgier. Yes there are creases in the bodywork now, but it's beauty is in its curves. Luckily, if the challenger remains a larger coupe, there is more room for beauty to be worked in. IMO, Camaro and mustang are too compact to have good lines. Everything seems compromised. That being said, some hard points of the challenger platform kept the current car from being 100% beautiful.

    The S550 Mustang was a radical change away from the "retro" styling. I think it's done just fine.

    The new Camaro's sluggish sales despite being the best performing Camaro ever is hilarious to me (as I stated earlier, I've hated the last two gens of Camaro).

    Lol - love it. Hey man the beauty of this forum is the opinions shared by one another. I genuinely look forward to booting up my crappy work computer to check AllPar every day, and see what you goofballs are going on about. Whether it's that Chrysler is being sold (for the trillionth time) or that someone thinks an SRT Pacifica is on way (what?), I love every second of it.
