More Las Vegas reveals

by David Zatz on

Nick reported in from Las Vegas once more, telling us that dealers were shown:

  • A “shaker” hood for the Dodge Challenger (as illustrated above; the air cleaner cover pokes through the hood, and “shakes” as the engine runs, bringing in cold air.)
  • A Chrysler Town & Country S version, continuing the effort to increase its appeal to younger buyers
  • Conspicuous by their absence were the Barracuda — possibly because Chrysler execs knew that there would be leaks — and any Dakota replacement, despite rumors surrounding one for years
  • “Lifted” trucks straight from the factory; these would be a step forward for buyers who do not want cobbled-together aftermarket versions with safety issues, but must have been a major challenge for the Mopar people, who must conform to Federal safety standards and the company’s own durability standards. Correction: This was just the Power Wagon, done up in matte black.
