Kind of like how Chevy's current design trend is hideous front ends on everything

Parents decided to hold off on buying for a few months. Just isn't enough 2WD inventory up north for a good buy, understandably so.

In non-GM related news, the Chrysler brand is reportedly on the chopping block.

But they just came out with the Pacifica? Would they roll it back into Dodge?

We have a POS Charger police car. It’s like a 2007 IIRC. One of the guys has a 2014 Charger Super Bee with the 392. They were sitting next to each other last night and they looked identical. Maybe it’s just the nose, but everything looked the same. The grill, headlights, etc...

They were refreshed (though some consider it a new generation) for the 2011 model year. The newer ones have scallops along the side (kinda like the Chargers from the 60's), the grill is more trapazoidal (narrower at the top) and the front fascia is more pointed/rounded than before. The biggest difference though is in the tail lights. The old cars had normal tail lights on either side of the trunk opening while the new ones have a full width 'race track' tail light setup

Thanks DG. I’ll find out the specifics for both. I swear the headlights looked like they were the exact same. I’ll try for a picture next time.

Yeah, oddly enough they didn't seem to change the headlights much (if at all) when they changed the styling. Couple that with a pretty similar front fascia and its easy to see why people might not notice the difference. No idea why they didn't put an effort into making the headlights really stand out as different when the difference in the tail lights is instantly recognizable.

The headlights are changed and more modern-ish. Basically, they made the front end more aggressive. I like the change. Love the newer rear end, whereas the old rear-end was kinda bland.
