    That AWD code just made me jump back in my seat a bit. Thought ol' @redriderbob was going to have to trade-in sooner than he had hoped!

    hope not--don't get me wrong--srt charger looks amazing, but I don't think they should be causing consumer confusion between models with the goods and those that don't.

    SRT will probably still look different.

    Care to give us a little DarkSky rendition on what an SXT and an SRT next gen Charger may look like? ;)

    I would not hold my breath on that one. Spending that much money with that little potential of return does not make business sense. The 200 and the Dart left a bad taste on FCA's mouth. They would be much wiser to invest that money in an SUV or a truck. I really think cars are done for FCA. Milk what you can from the current design then kill it off.

    "Little potential of return"? Seriously? The development of the next gen Charger and Challenger is well under way and set to launch in 2020. New SUV's are of course also in the pipeline.

    Makes a lot of sense. The architecture will be underpinning several Alfa and Dodge vehicles... as did Fiat based CUSW did for Dodge and Chrysler. Charger and Challenger as well as a Journey replacement are all to be on the architecture currently. Sergio also confirmed that the Grand Cherokee and Durango would be based off this architecture too. There is marketing studies going on by FCA right now for a mid-size RWD based car to come to market as well. Having one architecture for these performance cars makes a lot of sense. So I have no idea where you are coming at with that statement?

    And by the way the full-size cars actually do make quite a bit of money.

    With Chervrolet back out of the cop car fleet sales... Dodge is the only one who battles Ford. Ford Police Interceptor Utility (errr Explorer) has been outselling the sedan. However, Dodge Charger Pursuit outsells the Ford Police Interceptor Sedan (errr Taurus). Dodge will be adding a Durango Pursuit model soon to battle Ford. Yes, finally a Durango that is pursuit rated with more cooling and bigger brakes.

    Dodge sold 95,437 Chargers in the US in 2016. Dodge also sold 64,433 Challengers in the US, while Chrysler sold 53,241 300s in the US.

    Just US sales for the Brampton three were 213,111. Dodge is also a performance brand with most of its performance coming from three vehicles, Durango, Charger and Challenger. There is plenty of room for investment of the fullsize car lineup, or you wouldn't be seeing Dodge launch vehicles like the Challenger GT AWD or the new T/A and Daytona. Chrysler released the 300S Sport Appearance Package. These cars will be replaced in 2021 by Giorgio platform based cars. The new cars will be lighter thanks to finally getting a majority of suspension parts made from aluminum, have more efficient powertrains and will still be performance based.

    So, 2021MY? Do we "know" that they will have the same interior volume and large spacious trunks? I use my Challenger to go to Lowes, many times, lol. My record is 12 2x4x8s. :)
