    So if 2020 is the last model year of the current cars, would dodge really update to the 5.7 for one model year (2020) like said above?

    I will be happy either way so I’m not going to investigate too much.

    Why would have too?
    Why does it have to be anything else's Architecture given the current computational power? Why can't it be the summation of lesson learned from all proceeding corporate models?

    if you're using the same hard points, why call it an ALL-NEW platform?? well, at least tooling costs should be minimal if you're using the same hard points as the current platform, correct??

    Because people equate that with old design language.... people are preoccupied with 1985 ...... can’t grasp that it is simply the carrier points..... go look at other threads where people absolutely panicked by the word that it would have the same “platform”

    I remember reading one of Bob S’s posts about how generally speaking, platforms aren’t necessarily FWD or RWD, but all the parts you want to use to make a vehicle FWD/RWD have to fit within and around the hard points. I imagine with the increased flexibility available today, this is even more true. It gives you a lot more options for designing a vehicle (not just for FWD/RWD) if I’m understanding it correctly.

    If the new generation supposed to be out in 2 years, aren't we supposed to see some see some camouflaged testers?

    not since FCA took over they are very very tight with that sort of thing, they wont let it leak out until they are ready. A regular looking Charger or Maserati could be the tester and you would never know aside from a subtle exterior thing or crawling underneath.

    But a new powertrain is being tested or even an existing one, the front would have to be covered to not show the front fascia being tested.

    Maybe that’s what the Charger GT was testing for. It had a strange piece under the rear bumper and seemed like a powertrain mule. And the Charger GT doesn’t really have any powertrain upgrades that weren’t present in previous years.

    Unfortunately, Triple Nickel is the silver color that was shown on the Redeye. Different paint code than Billet but it looks the same to me. I was hoping for something a little bit different.

    Gotta disagree bud, spy shots are exploited on the car blog sites about everything they've come out with since Fiat took over. FWIW they tend to all get caught approximately a year to a year and a half before production.
