Looks like my next car will either be a mustang or challenger since Ford and Dodge are actually keeping gas powered pony/2+2 coupe cars around for longer than Chevy plans to.

Oh HELL YES! Thank you Dodge. Another option to the S650 Mustang. I hope this is true, it just made the future of this hobby a lot brighter.

Or they actually care about their customers.

Let Ford and Dodge keep grasping to the past

I want to see the future.

The new ones are going to be lighter, quicker and hopefully handle as well as the Gen 6 Camaro. I started out with a Dodge (69 Super Bee) I guess I'll go out with one.

Always liked the Challenger styling. Looking forward to seeing what next generation looks like if actually done. Hopefully manual transmission is available in the high horsepower trims.

Looks like Dodge is beginning to realize that EV's are not going to sell like everyone is thinking. Only 50% of it's lineup will be EV by 2030. I bet that shinks too. The other auto manufactures are going to realize this as well. For GM it isn't ICE Camaro or nothing. GM isn't discontinuine an ICE Corvette are they? I'd buy a Corvette before I'd ever buy a Dodge or Ford. But... That's just me...

If that were the case they would have improved the quality of their products outside of making bigger engines. Even Kia continued to improve on their quality, Dodge is still as crappy

We have 3 Dodges that have been fantastic daily drivers for years, and 3 others before them.

This makes me smile. Don't be surprised if Chevy gets back into the game in a few years.

Thank God, I thought I was stuck with the Mustang as the only option.
