A little more pricing reassurance.

From: http://blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2...expects-v.html

Quote:
Spurred by high gas prices, Dodge unexpectedly sped the introduction of a V-6 version of the 2009 Challenger, a model that could account for 40% or more of Challenger sales. The Challenger SE, powered by a 3.5-liter V-6, joined the much-anticipated 2009 Challenger R/T — which uses a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 — on stage at the New York auto show. Come fall 2008, those versions will join the current Challenger SRT8, which has a 6.1-liter version of the Hemi V-8 and is the sole trim level available as a 2008.

While Dodge expects the R/T trim level to be the volume seller, Bryan Zvibelman, Chrysler Group's manager of car, minivan and truck product communications, says the model's appeal is broad enough to attract buyers who are less interested in speed. "The look of the car is a big part of its appeal, and people will be happy to have that for just over $20,000," he said. That rough price refers to the base SE trim level; the SRT8 stickers for $37,320.
The 08 V6 Mustange starts just under $20k. If this is the kind of premium Scott is talking about I am a happy camper.

I think this leaves lots of room for a Challenger R/T to be well under $30k, probably pretty close to the GT. And if those two are that close the SS has to follow.

Angry

I simply want a new camaro with OVER 400 hp for under 30k..
I dont think it is going to happen considering there are Dodge dealer's
getting idiots to pay 50k for a 6.1 litre Challenger.
Im sure if true mopar fans (idiots) are willing to pay 50k for a new muscle bound mopar, then Chevrolet will set back and say..."hummmm""
Those Dodge guys are getting top price for they're muscle car.
Why should we compete too with pricing if there are people willing to pay it?
need proof? Now they have them at buy it now for 64K? WTF?
This is since yesterday! Keep in mind MSRP is 40k not 60K!
Gander: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2008-...em130211254406
I hope the hell I am wrong people.. I really do.
Remember what got the camaro dropped in the first place in 2002.
HIGH Prices, and they (Chevy) COULD NOT compete with mustang pricing.
Period. Off soap box.
Not trying to be a doomsdayer.
But when Chevy renigged when they first said they wanted the camaro to be able to compete with mustang pricing (which was one reason to bring camaro back in the first place $$$$) now they are saying they (gm) are not going to be trying to slam beat the prices on mustangs..
See where we are headed?

Relax. R. E. L. A. X.

The prices will be competitive with the Mustang. YES. It will be a little more expensive. NO. They were not going to beat them. If anybody thought that it was possible to price a Camaro beneath a Mustang, with an "upscale" interior, and an extremely advanced IRS system....they're nuts.

Second, the Challenger shouldn't even be considered when you talk pricing. This year they're making 5-10 thousand(error?) of a car that's been out of commission for thirty years. This car was designed to appeal to all the baby-boomers that now have money to pay such outrageous prices. It get's terrible gas mileage, has a mediore interior, and considering all that, then accounting for it's performance (imo) it's priced WAY to high to begin with.

Camaro will be a mass-produced car, aimed at younger buyers who DON'T have money to throw around. So. it will be priced against the Mustang, trim for trim. Have WAY better performance, have WAY better interior, and WAY better gas mileage.

Don't let the sky fall. nobody "renigged" anything. A bunch of people took "Premium" to mean through-the-roof pricing. They were, are, and will be wrong.

Have Faith. They're going to do this the right way.
