That’s what I believe too, I believe 4 door would sell much better regardless of what the 2-door purest say. They could do both but I doubt that they will.
Not that I believe this will be the case, there can be a case (and a precedent) for Charger becoming the Dodge sub-brand, line Wagoneer is to Jeep now. Want a 2-door EV, Get the Charger. Want 4 door muscle? Get the Charger L. Need even more room? Get the Charger X.Could it be the Charger will be a 4door and 2 door? That would allow the Challenger to be smaller and more nimble.
Tavares added that by 2025, 98% of models in Europe and 96% of models in the U.S. would be available with electrified powertrain options; either BEVs, PHEVs, or HEVs. As shown below, by the end of the decade, all Stellantis models in Europe and the U.S. would have battery-electric alternatives.So the Next Gen Cars are getting ICE's so that means the Next Gen Cars are not really on "STLA Large" but STLA Giorgio thats found on new the Grand Turismo and Grecale?. becase i was under the impression that STLA large is BEV only.
I agree, but I too think their will be ICE and Possibly PHEV versions on the STLA Giorgio platform. The ICE version might get same names or possibly new names, perhaps a Cornet 4-door, Cuda 2-door and perhaps a Magnum CUV coupe. Possibly Hurricane 2.0T replacing Pentasutar entry level. Hurricane TT I6 on performance ICE and PHEV models.Ralph said in the TFL interview that the Charger design is not possible with a ICE. I think this will be a BEV only.
At about the 6:30 mark of the video, Ralph responded to the possibility of making the same car with "a big honkin' V8" in that the car would not be as sleek. He said nothing about a I6, V6 or I4 hybrid because he was not asked. At about the 1:02 mark, Ralph said that this vehicle would "replace the Charger and Challenger". At about the 6:44 mark, Ralph stated that he was given the direction to keep the production model as close to the concept as possible however at about the 7:12 mark he stated that they wanted "something our community can afford". A full carbon fiber tub would probably price the car outside that target. The side view mirrors will be quick casualties unless Federal approval of side view cameras happen before production. The Banshee will probably exist as the top end of a line of vehicles with less exotic materials being used to craft models that the Dodge customer base would find financially acceptable. Given this car is supposedly one model year away, it seems that either Dodge is keeping a whole lot of things secret or they are making this s#!t up as they go in the hopes that something viable comes out the other end.Ralph said in the TFL interview that the Charger design is not possible with a ICE. I think this will be a BEV only.
Charger is bigger than the Challenger, could just be that?
I don't have a subscription but if you read HTML code, you can find the full story.
Not saying your wrong, but the data gathered from buyers of the Challenger are always strongly in favor of keeping it a large muscle car. I really hope Dodge listens to the people who make the Challenger profitable and not the outsiders who complain but wouldn’t buy the product even if it were exactly built to their demands.Could it be the Charger will be a 4door and 2 door? That would allow the Challenger to be smaller and more nimble.
