RS any idea why the Classic package went from $3300 to $4785? Have they added more equipment to the package?

You are showing the wheels that come with the 2011 GWE Classic as the new standard wheels for the 2012 Classic, is that correct? No more heritage wheels?

For 2014+, we need this:

- Challenger convertible
- More interior colors/redesigned dash board
- Manual transmission across the board
- Supercharged V-8 as an option

Also, make the exterior styling changes an evolution over the current model like you did on the Charger and 300. Less is more on this car.

Yes, a convertible and a supercharger option should be in the lineup

That would be a shame. There is nothing Classic about the new RT Classic wheels.

How about a Classic Interior option ? With some leather color choices.

Paddle Shifters !!!! We’re talking about American Muscle here Dodge not some Eurotrash gizmo

I bet you complain about not having options, and now you're complaining about having an option you don't think "belongs" on a muscle car. Gimme a break.

Thanks for the update. Question though which transmission is standard for 2012 and which does Dodge fell the need to charge extra for? Since in 2011 they charged an extra $900 plus for the auto transmission and the year before it was the oposite I was just wondering what they were doing for 2012.

2014 SRT Core - 12.285 @ 112.50 mph
2010 R/T - PB 12.87 Traded

I know my car runs 10's because I once beat a guy who said his car runs 11's.

Sad to see the Heritage wheel discontinued. The GWE wheel is nice looking but still prefer the Heritage.
