Wow, I thought it was dull in Orange. It's even worse in Silver(my favorite color usually). The placement of the sideview mirrors is horrible. They need to be further forward and up higher (preferably on the front of the window area).

That is kind of a funny place for side mirrors. Not too bad looking, though.

I'm liken the silver much better than the Orange...but there's still something about the Challenger...it just looks...voluptuous. That's it. Pretty...but too rounded, and smoothed off. Big cars shouldn't have that done to them, it makes them look even bigger.

While I would love a cuda variation as well. The cuda at SEMA was a one off built not by Chrysler or even for them. It was a custom built off of a charger for a customer by the vendor of that SEMA booth.

Dodge Challenger = Two Tons of Fun

It looks nice in silver and black, and 425 hp is nice to have. But, the B pillar isn't hidden very well. And it still looks fat. Where the Camaro has muscular bulges, the Challenger just has bulges.

I don't know. The B-pillar looks about the same to me as the one on the Camaro. But I agree with you on the bulges. The Camaro just looks plain menacing and tough. The Camaro looks like its saying 'Get the hell out of my way!' This Challenger looks too docile in comparison. The original '70 Challenger had an edginess, and meaness in appearance that this new car lacks.

Kudos to Chrylser for keeping the production version fairly close to the concept.

But, I HATE THE GAS FILLER CAP!!! IMO, it sticks out like a sore thumb and ruins the lines.

I have to agree. The Challenger looks good but its too rounded and has no definition. Now the Camaro looks so tough mean and edgy. And I love the muscle bulges over the rear fenders. The Camaro by far takes the award for looking the best.

That's the R/T model, the one below the SRT! Interesting. This is the one with the 5.7 litre Hemi that will be competing with the Mustang GT. Nice. Looks like the butterfly vents on the hood from the concept have made it to production.

2008 challengers are indeed automatics only. That said there will be a 6 speed for them starting 2009 model year.

Personally I like voluptous, my ex was exactly that I loved her body But back on topic a bit, I do like the Challenger, but it needs to be orange. The silver just killed it. On the other hand I don't like silver as a color that much at all, except on the Camaro, which I think is more thanks to the car than anything else. I could buy a silver Camaro, where it not for the fact that I DO NOT want to blend in too much and sivler is pretty common a car color around here.

In conclusion I'd like to add that I wouldn't consider buying the Challenger until it has a manual transmission,

I like it... and I can't wait to see one in person... I do believe that the Concept was a better version, but isn't that the way all Concepts are?

Digg'n it, not as much as the Camaro (obviously). I especially like the matte black accents. Job well down Chrysler.

This is my favorite pic of them all so far. It looks half decent here. Every other pic I've seen for some reason, I can't stand the grill/headlight enclosure. I guess it kinda seems to envelop the lights when there's shadows. In the light it just looks unfinished and dull. The colors are meh for me too. The gas-filler cap on the gray looks like a primer paint job and looks unfinished to me.

I will definately go test drive one just to see how it feels, but meh. nothing spevial in my eyes. Looks nice but could be better.
