So I’m thumbing through one of the latest “here are the new cars” periodicals (I don’t spend much time with them…I don’t care much if a Mazda sedan and out perform a VW sedan…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz) and ran across that stated “Chrysler looks to the ‘Cuda to replace Dodge‘s Challenger.”
Ok…come on heee…er (New York accent). Didn’t we just have the conversation about the “Dodge Dart“??? Like how it looked more like a Neon!!! And correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t we all agree that the Charger was a cool as “Honda Accord“? Yes, I believe we did!
So now lets take the Challenger the one they got “right’ in a retro sense. So why replace it? Well some could argue in the 70′s the Cuda was a better looking car and you know they bring a lot more money. So just maybe….but read this!!!
“A Barracuda replacement would be much more trim, though still on a RWD platform. Chrysler and…(cough) Fiat are said to be jointly developing a new platform that’s smaller the current Charger… Gille’s Barracuda will be far less literal interpretation of its namesake.”
So let me see if I have this straight….you’re gonna take the Challenger that looks somewhat similar the orig…and you’re gonna replace it with a car that won’t look like this original?
Smart? What do you think?
