    I would have guessed this post would have drawn more attention? Btw, if they make an awd Hellcat Charger or challenger, I suggest behemoth or juggernaut for names...

    Hellcats are great for advertising and well off consumers, but I think most of us would be happier to see a revised 5.7 or a smaller Hemi in a new 300 or Giorgio based Chrysler sedan/cuv. That is product we can afford and are starved for, not a torque monster that very few will ever own or aspire to. With the current climate vis a vis greenhouse gases/climate change, self driving cars, and ever increasing safety Nazi's, a Hellcat basically becomes a show or track car, one that will likely be legislated off the street in the not too distant future. Sad to see it happen, but I already get several speeding tickets a year in my lowly 5.7 Hemi due to traffic cams, automated enforcement, etc.. Where can you drive these big engined cars anymore?
    (what about Mammoth, or T-Rex?)

    I for one, am excited for the Hell's to continue. Didn't want the demon, prefer four doors, so this is exciting.

    Not well. We have to give them away most of the time. Ford Transits are cheaper, offer more standard options, and are more attractive aesthetically.

    I wonder if that’s a Canada thing? If somebody only needs the short wheelbase connect, then yeah selling them a city will be tough... little pricing wiggle room, but the city trounces the LWB in every measurable other than looks - the city is a bit of an ugly duckling ;)

    Cheaper referring to lease rates and finance rates. Our rates are now 4.29% across all terms. Ford is still offering 0% over select terms coupled with rebates.

    That has been answered multiple times. There are many new products coming over the next several years. Do not expect multiple over the top concepts like Chrysler’s past.

    Just checking. We know product is still a ways out unless we are talking auto shows well into the future.

    We just had the 2018.5 Jeep Wrangler (JL) in LA last month, and this month we see 2019 Ram 1500 (DT) and 2019 Jeep Cherokee (KL) in Detroit... so it's starting. You will be seeing a few more vehicles this year as well, but we will be seeing vehicles like Grand Wagoneer/Wagoneer (WS) and Grand Cherokee (WL) next model year.
